It's hard not to wonder why Beyond Thunderdome isn't better.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10

Outrageously sinister, unblinkingly violent, Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome is everything that fans of the futurist road warrior could hope for and more.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4

This middle portion of the picture becomes dangerously preachy, but just before we and Max are bored, director Miller returns Max to his roots, a screaming chase sequence through a desertlike Australian landscape.

Beyond Thunderdome is the third in George Miller's Mad Max series, and it closes the trilogy like a lightning blast followed by the ominous, resonant drone of thunder.

There is something to get excited about in this third chapter of the Mad Max series: the powerhouse presence of Tina Turner.
May 13, 2015
The third in Mel Gibson's sci-fi series is the weakest, but it remains a hugely entertaining futuristic spectacular.

Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome isn't a bad movie. It has entertaining sections, decent performances and more than a few provocative images. But it also has a major shortcoming: It's too darned sane.

If "Mad Max" embraced a geneticist's acumen and "The Road Warrior" a philosopher's spirit, "Thunderdome" is about cold, hard economics - not just in Bartertown's transactions but the market expectations that come with the receipt of studio funding.

An astonishing display of virtuoso cinema that is destined to take its place among the most vivid and freshly imagined fist-to-groin contests in the medium's history.
June 10, 2008
Miller never falls back on the formulas that have become the bane of too many recent action films, and his sustained cuts lend a clarity to the proceedings.

The performances are superb. The script allows Gibson to bring a welcome new dimension to the Mad Max character, and the actor rises to the occasion.

Gibson impressively fleshes out Max, Tina Turner is striking in her role as Aunty (as well as contributing two topnotch songs, which open and close the picture) and the juves are uniformly good.
