Remember: no matter where you go, there you are.By JediSi (301 reviews) from Kent , 05 Sep 2007
[Highly rated reviewer]Had 'Thunderdome' been the only Mad Max movie, I would have liked it more. But in the previous films weve seen a groovy flying machine, a gonzo pilot, and a superb chase. The whole Bartertown sequence was deficient of the essential ingredients to pull it off... the genuine belief from everyone concerned that this in truth was 'reality'.
'Road Warrior' managed to do precisely that. Bartertown felt like a anthology of fantastic ideas emphatically thrown together without ever being integrated into believability.
By and large, 'Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome' is worth watching.

another brilliant oneBy cheesekake (1498 reviews) from uk , 20 Jan 2013I actually enjoyed this film and thought it was the best one so far, I'm so glad that they stopped at this one because to go further would've made the series of films just turn silly. Lots of great action and brilliant stuff
The third movie curse.By onion (345 reviews) from leeds , 25 Feb 2011What is it about movie Franchises?
Why do they always water them down and give them a lower age rating?
Robocop, Lethal Weapon, Terminator, Beverly Hills Cop, Evil Dead, And this. To name but a few.
The third one always seems to sell out!
Evil Dead - Army of Darkness is pretty good though. How it got from a no budget zombie movie set in a remote cabin in the woods of America to an epic battle in medieval England, and still works! Well, Its beyond brilliance.
Anyway, Im not saying this is a bad film, but how the hell did it get from a relatively normal world with towns, garages and farm houses in the first one, to this, a post apocalyptic desert where everyone seems to be into S&M fetish costumes!
Having said all that, Its still not a bad film.
Not as good as the first two... but beyond boring!By a customer from Orpington , 28 Oct 2010
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHideMad Max III is the final film of the trilogy. I didn't enjoy it as much as the first two but still enjoyable. One of the reasons that people don't like this is because of the kids that have gone native that Max meets, but I actually quite enjoyed that. And another thing you could interpret in this film, the trilogy goes in a cycle, the first film was about society breaking down, the second about when society had broken down, and the third is when society had rebuilt itself, to some extent. The best thing about this is Thunderdome, when Max fights Blaster, in a gladiatorial style battle, both attached to bunjee ropes and swinging at each other. And in the end, you have Tina Turner singing Beyond Thunderdome, which is a fun song! A lot of people say this film is the weakest of the series, but I still enjoy this one. I generally think that if you enjoyed the first two Mad Max films, you'll probably enjoy this one. Check it out!
We don't need another hero..By Bassman71 (696 reviews) from Didsbury, England , 01 Jan 2010Max is back, gets mugged, follows his mugger to settlement, power struggle in town, Max gets recruited to help, doesn't go to plan, gets ostracised, gets rescued by ewoks...erm kids in desert......
Hit and miss third part of the Mad Max trilogy which starts out very well in Bartertown, rips off Lord of the Flies/Return of the Jedi in the middle but finishes strong with a decent chase.
Mel Gibson looks mildly embarrassed during the middle whilst Tina Turner plays a pantomime villain with matching shoulder pads & earings.
A bigger budget this time around but still no-where as good as the first two.
