The third in Mel Gibson's sci-fi series is the weakest, but it remains a hugely entertaining futuristic spectacular.

I am probably in the extreme minority, but Beyond the Thunderdome was my favorite Mad Max film before Fury Road.

With the release of the superb Mad Max Fury Road, I decided to rewatch Thunderdome, which I hadn't seen since it first hit the theatres back in 1985. It was a big deal back then, but I can't say it has aged well. It is also apparent that this Mad Max installment is very watered down so as to appeal to all ages and make more money. That being said, it is fun, and Tina Turner is great as Aunty Entity, ruler of Bartertown.

The third and weakest of the "Mad Max" trilogy, which isn't to say it's not enjoyable. Part of the problem is that it really feels like two distinct movies. There's the Thunderdome segment and then there's the stuff with the kids, who are a mix of "Lord of the Flies" and the Lost Boys. This middle part drags, but it picks up in the final act when there's a kick-ass car chase. Tina Turner is good in one of her few movie roles and contributes a song to the soundtrack. Gibson was never better as the title character.

I totally disagree with aaa5756......this is a pretty good movie. Very entertaining.

This movie was entertaining and interesting but not one of my favorite for this year. Not too bad---good performance. I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way.
