Mad Max

Blu-ray Review: Full Set For Beloved ‘Mad Max Trilogy’

Mad Max Trilogy

CHICAGO – With George Miller’s “Mad Max: Fury Road” being prepped for release next year with Tom Hardy in the legendary role (and co-starring Nicholas Hoult, Charlize Theron, and Zoe Kravitz), it seems a perfect time to revisit one of Mel Gibson’s most legendary series of films with Warner Bros.’ “Mad Max Trilogy,” including “Mad Max,” “The Road Warrior,” and “Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome.”
