I can't even begin to start telling you reasons why you should watch this...
right from the beginning its a go! thats if you like 70's made for T.V. Thrillers.
a little lost classic that has an uncanny life of its own.
a distant childhood memory I'm happy to have found again.
Within the restraints of his character Chuck Conners does not hold back!
Maybe there's something wrong with me, but I hope you enjoy this too!

"Are you one of the few who remember seeing this movie at a theater in '73 and have anxiously awaited its release on DVD? If you are, pick your three or four favorite scenes and then watch this Geneon (Pioneer) release. Guess what, they're not there. Where did they go, why they've been cut - cut - cut. So much for enjoying a rather obscure and perverse piece of cinematic history.
Positives: 'The Mad Bomber' boasts a suprisingly strong cast for a low budget exploitation film which includes; Chuck Connors, Vince Edwards and Neville Brand. More importantly, it only costs $5.99 so you haven't lost much."

"Vince Edwards is tracking a Mad Bomber (Chuck Conners) who can only be IDed by a serial rapist who was attacking a nurse while the bomber was blowing up a hospital (gee, sounds like a place my HMO would send me!).Not a great flick, but it has its moments... and it is weird!"

"To tell you the truth this DVD is a rip off this is the r-rated version not the uncut version. The uncut version shows more gore and blood then this version and the seen where chuck connors gets blown up at the end is awful. In the uncut version you actually see the body after it is blown up for a good 15 to 20 secounds not a quick flash like in this version. Also the seen where Neville Brand is watching his wife on the wall with his projector showing images of here nude in diffrent attire is really hacked up. It was cut and edited so fast you might as well have left it out of the DVD version all togather. even the rape scences have been edited. I shoued know I have the uncut version on VHS tape and made a copy of it on DVD incase the tape becomes destroyed for my self. lets find out when they are going to put out the uncut version instead. I bought this version any way for picture quality, but if your not a big fan of this movie buyer beware."
Chuck Connors finest hour since "The Rifleman".

"The Mad Bomber, which incidentally had a musical score which was noted, was a true work of art. I'm just not sure how to categorize it. I think, upon hearing the music in the movie, I could tell what kind of film this would turn out to be. Chuck Connors, with his long 70's sideburns and his granny glasses was by far the highlight. Although I must say, he has come a long way since he played Lucas McCain on "The Rifleman", he was very convincing. Neville Brand, who served in WWII and received numerous medals for his heroism during the war, did not receive any awards for this film. He played the rapist and he did quite well at what he had to do. Vince Edwards, who played the psycho policema, was always mad and violent, even worse than the mad bomber or the rapist. He should have been locked up. I'm sorry but he did not add to this eloquent and poignant story of tragedy. The other assortment of actors were simply horrible. But what made this movie, if I may call it a movie, was the development of the two main characters. I was truly convinced that Connors was a psycho bomber and Brand was a sick, sadistic rapist, as repulsive as he was. In any event, I would reccommend this movie for people to have a good laugh but not to take it too seriously. By the way, Tina Louise, who played Ginger on Gilligan's Island, is in the movie, playing a woman activist who gets blown up by Connors. Just like her career went after Gilligan's Island."
