the first mad max film doesn't scream out as a film that needed to be fanedited but Tranzor did a good job in giving the viewer a new take on the film. it maybe works best if you decide to watch this along with the second film as a means of telling the origins of max and the world he inhabits in shorter time. with the family story removed the character of max isn't the main center of attraction in this edit until the end.
not the best fanedit I've seen and it's a little rough in terms of editing but enjoyable non the less. the edit comes with a commentary track from Tranzor which is entertaining. however there are times when he doesn't speak for long periods and with there being no sound to the film your just watching mad max with the sound off.
-interesting, creative take on the film. I’m always impressed when an editor can change a major plot point and make it work
-nice, quick, action-packed edit
-no plot holes as long as you view it as a stand-alone film
-nice commentary track
-lots of rough edits
-don’t really buy that Max would be that pissed because of what happened to a co-worker – the loss of his family is much more believable revenge story
-plot changes don’t fit in with cannon
-not really a con, but people shouldn’t be given the option of watching this with the horrible dubbed US audio
6/10, anamorphic with smoother edits would be 8/10
