This infusion of money and production by a major studio gives the film a slightly more polished look, but is inferior to the previous two films in every other way.

Definitely the worst movie in the Mad Max series. Weakly plotted, largely a re-hash of the previous movie without even the vaguest hint of tension.

Despite some funky oddities and a smashing climactic chase, this pales in comparison to The Road Warrior.

The directors, George Miller and George Ogilvie, borrow from every source they can find; movie buffs can pass the time spotting the Lynch shot, the Leone shot, the Jodorowski shot, and all kinds of others.

The punky energy of the earlier films has given way to a self-conscious striving for significance, obscuring Miller's considerable kinetic talents in favor of a lumpy didacticism.

Enough imagination, wit and ingenuity to put recent Spielberg to shame.

Outrageously sinister, unblinkingly violent, Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome is everything that fans of the futurist road warrior could hope for and more.

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

Bartertown is convincingly detailed, and the fight in Thunderdome is thrilling, ludicrous stuff, goofy and thrilling at the same time.

A huge step down from the first two, but still watchable (if only for the action).
| Original Score: 3/5
September 17, 2002
Not a shade on the originals, but still action to the max!
| Original Score: 3/5
February 4, 2003
An admirable conclusion to the Mad Max trilogy: softer than its predecessors, but possessing its own unique voice.
| Original Score: 4/5
