Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Brian J. Dillard
Although it's slicker and more hopeful than the low-budget original (and its equally nihilistic follow-up), the third Mad Max offering is still an entertaining sci-fi-action flick with breathtaking production design and a script and cast that back it up. George Miller, writer/director of the first two films, teams with co-director George Ogilvie for the most visually elaborate entry in the series, delineating his film's competing post-apocalyptic societies with a deftness and density that other science fiction storytellers should study. Despite his newfound scruples -- sparing the life of a gladiator with Down's syndrome and aiding a band of feral children -- Mel Gibson's titular protagonist is still an engagingly gritty hero. In addition to his now well-honed leather-n-guns schtick, here Gibson also gets to show off the game sense of humor that would characterize his later blockbusters, including the Lethal Weapon films. Tina Turner makes a sublimely campy villain, clad in low-cut chain mail and some serious horns. Barking orders in that distinctively gruff voice, the soul survivor takes care to strike bad-girl poses that show off her famous legs to good advantage. Despite the strong leads, though, Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome would fall apart if not for the supporting characters, costumes, and settings that bring the post-nuclear outback vividly to life. From an underground pig dung factory to an idyllic valley to a desiccated frontier town, the sets look great. As for the performers, veterans as varied as horror-flick bit-part champ Angelo Rossitto and venerable Aussie thespian Frank Thring get to blend quirky character acting and far-out costumes into a truly memorable rogues' gallery. The film's chase sequences can't match those from the previous films, while the good-guy Max and the film's hopeful finale alienated some fans of the franchise. But as a stand-alone action extravaganza with a Hollywood touch, Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome delivers.

    Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome

    I liked this movie and don't care if it wasn't that good or if its just plain weird or if it didn't live up to the first two or just The Road Warrior. I thought it was good but didn't quite get some stuff. Like how he only never told the children what his name was and some were still calling him Captain Walker. Then on the scene of where Max fought Blaster in Thunderdome and how Savanah (Helen Buday) was telling the story of how they came to being in the their new home (what had happened to him before they came to this place) everyone kept repeating something the person talking was saying again and again and again and it was getting quite annoying and a little disturing. Still the movie was good because it had singer Tina Turner who did a song for the movie called We Don't Need Another Hero which sounds good including a music video that goes well with the movie of course. Entertaining with only one long car chase near the end of the movie reminding everyone of the other two or probably just the Road Warrior since it was packed with car chases in most scenes of that movie.

    genuinely strange

    this movie is so original and strange that is deserves to be watched for those reasons alone. It is also beautiful to look at and delivers some great action sequences. It was not as powerful as the first two, but it is still worthy of viewing.
