Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome (1985)


After being exiled from the most advanced town in post apocalyptic Australia, a drifter travels with a group of abandoned children to rebel against the town’s queen. (IMDb)
It’s a little hard to get past some of the 80s cheese (Oh hey Tina Turner), especially in the odd first half in Bartertown–an outpost filled with pigs, weird chanted laws (“Break a deal, you get the wheel!”), and the underwhelming Thunderdome–but once Max gets back out in the desert and has his hideous locks chopped off, things get a bit better, as he leads a group of wilderness children to rescue some slaves from the aforementioned town, which culminates in another exciting car chase.
6/10 (Mediocre)


  1. Interesting! I might just give this one a watch, just so I will have seen the entire series. I love the other three, but this one seems to be the weakest of the bunch.
