MWG: Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome

Hanging out at Marci’s house, she was checking out what was available to watch on Netflix Instant Play. When she realized I had never seen this movie before, she was shocked and picked it as her movie of the month.

Netflix synopsis: While the final Mad Max film can’t outrun the first two, director George Miller delivers an awesome depiction of order amid chaos. Max (Mel Gibson) becomes embroiled in the internal tensions of Bartertown, ruled by the imperious Aunty Entity (Tina Turner). Will ex-cop Max turn into an assassin? Featuring the inventive Thunderdome fight sequence, this installment offers plenty of action. Adam Cockburn and Bruce Spence co-star.

RT Score: 81%
RT Consensus: Beyond Thunderdome deepens the Mad Max character without sacrificing the amazing vehicle choreography and stunts that made the originals memorable.

    I’ve now seen this movie a few times and still can’t really tell you what all of the running around and fighting is about. The plot never seems to quite capture my attention

    I am the same way! I know we were talking through it, but I don’t think that if we were silent, I would have followed along any better. I don’t really remember anything about the first two movies either. I found them entertaining, but after they were done, I didn’t remember what they were about. I know this movie had Tina Turner with her big hair, big earrings and big shoulderpads. I remember Master Blaster. Then he was off playing with the kids on the other side of the desert. Then there was some fighting. How did this all tie together? I don’t know!
