Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome

MadMax3posterBBB.5

(out of 5)


Think of this one as the Return of The Jedi of the Mad Max series: not bad but too obviously a part of a franchise and more geared to its younger target audience.   is once again the furious hero of the title who finds himself robbed and alone in the middle of the Australian desert. He stumbles upon a place called Bartertown where he seeks shelter, immediately recruited to fight in a gladiator arena where the town’s two rival heads (one played by a scintillating ) fight out their power over the people. Gibson also comes upon a group of orphan children who survived a plane crash during a nuclear war and now think him a hero and ask him to lead them to a safer place than where they are. The series has definitely lost its edge in the third installment, but it hasn’t lost its sense of fun, so go ahead and watch it; you won’t admire it but you won’t really regret it either.
