Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome (1985)

Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome (1985, AUS/USA) C-107m. SCOPE *** D: George Miller, George Ogilvie. Starring Mel Gibson, Tina Turner, Bruce Spence, Adam Cockburn, Frank Thring, Angelo Rossitto, Paul Larsson. Grandly filmed, riveting sequel with Mad Max (Gibson) going in search of his stolen automobile and ending up in the cesspool Bartertown, one of the last outposts in the post-apocalyptic wasteland. He becomes the pawn in a struggle for power between the midget ruler (Rossitto) of the underworld and the city's mayor (Turner). He also becomes the new hope for a tribe of lost children in the desert. Lightning paced, superbly directed science-fiction adventure with beautiful photography by Dean Semler and an excellent score by Maurice Jarre. A worthy conclusion of the trilogy around the loner in the barren outback.
