Mad Max: Get To The Point Edit
Faneditor Name:
Original Movie/Show Title:
Genre:
Fanedit Type:
Original Release Date:
1979
Original Running Time:
93 minutes
Fanedit Release Date:
Fanedit Running Time:
57 minutes
Time Cut:
36 minutes
Synopsis:
Most of the drama from the original Mad Max has been removed to create a pretty straight forward cop vs biker film.
Intention:
I loved the film but always thought a lot of the drama slowed it down (or it was the score music used though I do like that as well). At any rate I cut out most of the drama and now you have a pretty straight forward cop vs biker film.

I mainly made this for myself, but figured to share it anyway
Special Features:
audio commentary by tranzor
Editing Details:
**** there is one small 30 second scene I should have removed but left it in. It does not hamper much. This is the scene were FiFi is talking with the lawyer type about bribing Max with a new car (the vCool in order to stay on the force.

I also joined most scenes with an audio fade out as that is all I could do with them. However by doing this is does help give the illusion of more time passing
Cuts and Additions:

1. I edited out any reference or scene of Max’s family
2. I kept most of all the action and drama that revolved around those scenes
3. Because I cut out Max’s family, it now looks like he goes nuts for what the toecutter gang did to his friend Goose.
4. kept both Aussie and US languages

This is an older edit so the quality wasn’t too great. I enjoy the theatrical cut better.

A/V Quality - 7
Editing - 8

Pros:
-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

Cons:
-non-anamorphic
-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

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.
