MAD MAX BEYOND THUNDERDOME - DVD Movie

Customer Reviews

Good acting, good script, great action.
T. S. Crider
Also, nobody seems to try to salvage things, like in the end they just leave perfectly good "wrecked" vehicles, fuel, whatever else in the desert.
Ryan Sweet
This movie does manage to present itself well in terms of casting, set and style, however the plot possesses too many kinks.
Johnny S Geddes

I'm probably one out of only a handful of people that thinks Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome is just as good as The Road Warrior, and for different reasons, too. The Road Warrior was a spectacle of frenetically paced action sequences and it would feel like a complete retread if Beyond Thunderdome tried to do the same thing again. Instead, they added new elements, and the result is a very entertaining and imaginitive action/adventure.
Max (Mel Gibson) has just been robbed of all his belongings in the middle of nowhere in Australia. He searches for the thief and this leads to Bartertown, a unique society built upon methane energy dependent on pig manure, no less.
Max's search leads him to Aunty Entity (Tina Turner), Bartertown's lawmaker, who strikes a deal with him. All Max has to do is kill a certain somebody in Thunderdome arena and he'll get provisions in return. Not everything goes according to plan and Max is banished to the desert where he is rescued by a small group of lost children.
For those expecting the action of The Road Warrior you might be disappointed. While there is a good bit of action in Beyond Thunderdome, it's not as much as its predecessor and doesn't have as much energy. However, Beyond Thunderdome should be noted for having what is perhaps one of the best action sequences in American film history with the gladiator fight in Thunderdome arena between Max and the gigantic Blaster. The sequence is undeniably inventive and clever; it involves the two men tied to bungee cords that allow them to spring and leap throughout the arena and grab any weapons placed all around such as a mace, chainsaw, spear, etc.
What makes the film so good, though, are its successful attempts at creating complex societies.

The third chapter of the Mad Max films can't possibly outdo the success of The Road Warrior, but it's a worthy successor, an exciting film with a very interesting story.
Mel Gibson's Max is back again and finds himself helping another group of ragtag characters. Max finds his way to a town called Bartertown and is forced to engage in a gladiator battle to the death. After refusing to kill his beaten enemy, he's dragged back out to the wasteland, there he's rescued by a group of tribal children. A small group from Bartertown is looking to escape to "The Promised Land" Max and some of his young rescuers lead the way.
Tina Turner is on hand as the wicked Aunty Entity, ruler of Bartertown. Bookending the film are two excellent songs from her as well. Mad Max "3" is a worthy sequel, while not as intense as the previous two, the story is thought provoking and while a bit slow paced, the ending is more than worthwhile. Maurice Jarre's music score isn't as intense but does create an appropriate epic atmosphere. George Miller and George Ogilvie are the directors and create both a sequel and a film that can stand on it's own.

The Mad Max films finish their transformation from the edgy, ultra-violent first movie to this kid-friendly adventure picture with slick production values and flawless photography. The violence is toned down and the fantasy elements are played up; unfortunately, this means the post-apocalytpic kick of the second movie (just about one of the greatest action flick -- EVER!) has vanished. "Thunderdome" has some fine moments, especially the well-directed scenes with the tribes of children and the haunting images of the coda, as well a couple of good action sequences, such as the face-off in the Thunderdome arena, but it doesn't stay in your memory the way the first two films do. It is still worth seeing if you enjoyed the other movies in the series. Tina Turner's performance is certainly interesting, similar to Grace Jones turn in "Conan the Destroyer," which was made at about the same time.
Of course, if you've never seen a Mad Max films, don't start here. Go back to the first one (available in a great deluxe DVD), then work up to the best of three "Road Warrior" (available in a not so deluxe DVD), then you'll be ready for this finale -- and this DVD doesn't have much in the way of extras on it either.

Many viewers/reviewers have somewhat disregarded "Thunderdome" as being the least of the "Mad Max Triology" films. On the contrary, I found it to be the best and most thought provoking! If you were looking for merely mohawk-headed goons driving dune buggies and lots of stunt men being blasted into wasteland dust, I suppose the first two films DID top Thunderdome on the violence-for-naught scale. However, the wealth of metaphors that abound throughout Thunderdome -- the underworld where "muck" fueled the world above, symbolic of the very third-world oil interests that uphold today's modern society...and the "Lost Children of the Desert" (Hebrews?) who develop an entire religion based upon "Captain Walker's" notes that parallel a kind of "Dead Sea Scrolls," scripture of sorts -- more than make up for the lack of trademark violent scenes. (Even though there's plenty of that for me!) But to me, this final chapter in the Mad Max Triology was the best, and perhaps it was too bad the saga ended here. Because the screenwriters were apparently just beginning to feel the "wind up their asses" and put some real literary weight behind what had otherwise been just another radioactive round-up of raucous dune buggy races and pointless violence. Thundersome went beyond the superficial and gave us something sorely lacking in the first two films: quality sci-fi screenwriting! And this made it a "stand-alone" work in its own right, even if you hadn't seen the first two pictures!
