Movie Info

In this final chapter, Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) obtains a 70-year-old message from the time-traveling Dr. Emmett Brown (Christopher Lloyd), in which he informs Marty that he has retired to a small town in the Old West. Marty then finds out that the Doc was murdered shortly after sending the letter. In order to save his friend, Marty will have to travel back in time, disentangle a lovestruck Doc from a local schoolmarm, and repair the DeLorean -- all while avoiding a posse of gunslingers.

Audience Reviews for Back to the Future Part III

  • Jun 20, 2016
    Again, this film picks up right where the last one left off. This time, Marty goes back to the Old West. Same actors help keep continuity but I wasn't really as big of a fan of this one as I was of the first 2. It still is very much an above average film, but just my least favorite of the franchise. Mary Steenburgen as a love interest for Doc Brown did a great job in this film.

    "Back To The Future: Part III" is better than 1989's "Back To The Future: Part II". "Back To The Future: Part III" has good acting from "Michael J. Fox" and "Christopher Lloyd". The plot to this film is "Doc" has accidently time travelled to 1885. Then "Marty Mcfly" finds out that on the 7th of September 1885 "Doc" is shot. So "Marty Mcfly" must time travel back to 1885. Whilst in 1885 "Doc" falls in love with a woman he meets. The woman's name is "Clara Clayton". And she is so annoying towards the end. The music in this film is good again like "Back To The Future: Part II" it's not mind blowing music. "Back To The Future: Part III" is a good end to the "Back To The Future" trilogy and I will recommend you watch it. So I give "Back To The Future: Part III" a 7/10.

    Still great to watch and whilst not as good as the previous film it rounds a superb trilogy off nicely.

    A good finale to the trilogy. Good, but not great.
