Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Gregory Baird
The legendary DeLorean sports car makes one stylish, streamlined time machine in the Back to the Future trilogy, the '80s classics from director Robert Zemeckis (Forrest Gump). The first of the series is the strongest, telling the story of young Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox), a small-town teen in 1985 who takes an accidental trip back to 1955 in a time-traveling DeLorean built by eccentric, white-haired mad scientist Doc (Christopher Lloyd). Through a series of comedic missteps, Marty inadvertently keeps his parents (Lea Thompson and Crispin Glover) from falling in love, thereby threatening his own existence. Quite simply, this is the best time-travel film ever made, and it revels in Marty's fish-out-of-water 1980s take on 1950s Eisenhower-era innocence. With their self-assured handling of clever plot twists and time-travel paradoxes, writers Zemeckis and Bob Gale earned an Oscar nomination for Best Screenplay. And while the plot ticks with Swiss-watch precision, at the film's heart is an appointment with destiny, a single moment that sets the pattern for all the characters' lives, expressed eloquently in the film's central image of a tower clock stopped for 30 years by a bolt of lightning. Back to the Future Part II careens 30 years into the future (where the DeLorean has been made to fly) before Marty and Doc return to a nightmarish alternate 1985 (with shades of It's a Wonderful Life) that that can only be repaired by another trip back to the '50s. Labyrinthine time-travel complications are the name of the game in Part II, capped off by a brilliant reprise of the tour-de-force climactic sequence of the first film. Back to the Future Part III catapults Marty and Doc back in time to the Wild West of 1885, where fun and games with genre conventions -- cowboys, Indians, and gunfights -- and a little romance (Mary Steenburgen is introduced as Doc's true love) replace the plot complexities of the first two films. Fox and Lloyd anchor this series: Fox's boyish charm and energy is completely in sync with the film's buoyant spirit of fun, while Lloyd's archetypal portrayal of a mad-but-loveable scientist stands, along with his stint on Taxi, as the signature work of his career. And while only the original Back to the Future can be considered a true masterpiece, the sequels have a refreshing unpredictability that puts the trilogy as a whole -- along with the Star Wars and Indiana Jones trilogies -- at the pinnacle of post-Hollywood New Wave blockbuster fun.
