Two directors, Australian George Miller (Mad Max: Fury Road, Babe), and recently deceased George Ogilvie, who was in his 50’s when he did Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome, direct with an emphasis on the summery blockbuster values of action, sound, and special effects. Beyond Thunderdome is a more than conducive Mad Max movie for the mainstream than the earlier Mad Max and Mad Max II, with hardly any stress on the mayhem that marked those films. Both Mad Max and Mad Max II were directed by Miller. In this, pop singer Tina Turner is on board as the villainous Bartertown queen, whose sense of presence speaks more than her acting. The queen must face off with Max (Mel Gibson), who is heroic even mildly messianic this time. Auckland-born actor Bruce Spence (now in his 70’s, but then in his late 30’s) as wild pilot Jedidiah adds eccentricity, and a cast of young actors, as lost children post-apocalypse, are drawn as rugged survivalists. Thunderdome is filled with images of post-apocalyptic desert and raw survival, but is produced for effect, entertaining, comic-book fun, with a pounding visceral score by the eclectic Maurice Jarre.

Mad Max 3: Beyond The Thunderdome

Two men enter. One man leaves. Thats the law in Bartertowns Thunderdome arena. But lawmaker Aunty Entity (Tina Turner) will soon add another; dont get Max mad! Starring Mel Gibson for his third goround as the title hero who takes on the barbarians of the post-nuclear future and this time becomes the saviour of a tribe of lost children.

Critic Reviews:

  • " The suspense is still effective and the climactic railroad chase at the conclusion handsomely echoes the other outrageous stunts of the trilogy. " – Mike Massie
  • " This is a wild, imaginative action film that truly shows what the power of cinema can accomplish in even the direst of situations. " – Aaron Neuwirth
  • " Outrageously sinister, unblinkingly violent, Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome is everything that fans of the futurist road warrior could hope for and more. " – Candice Russell
