Minute Movie Review – Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome


Set, apparently, 15 years after the events of Mad Max 2, Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome is both exactly the same and completely different. The reason for the apocalypse are changed once more – to a nuclear war (Or single bomb? Who knows?) this time, but the story is similar to the previous installment and the stunts and action sequences aren’t really enough to carry yet another movie – even if they add all the “Lord of the Flies” they can find.

Random Observations:

Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome at imdb.com

Bruce Spence plays an airplane pilot in this film. In Mad Max 2, he played a gyrocopter pilot. Whose stupid idea was it to cast the same actor for two different, yet similar roles in the same francise?

Tina Turner plays one of the antagonists in this film. Let’s just say that there are good reasons why she stuck to singing.

Mel Gibson week (or whatever the time period has become) will continue soon with Lethal Weapon 3 and 4. After that, no more Mel Gibson. Ever.

Might want to give it a look on WAP and this indicates almost all cellular phone templates are definitely not really cooperating with your web site.
