Mel Gibson, Tina Turner, Angelo Rossito, Helen Buday, Rod Zuanic, Frank Thring
1985, 106 Minutes, Directed by: George Miller, George Ogilvie
Definitely the worst movie in the Mad Max
series. Weakly plotted, largely a re-hash of the previous movie (The
Road Warrior), without even the vaguest hint of tension, as a grey-haired Max (Mel
Gibson) turns sentimental and helps a group of orphaned kids out of pure altruism.
Lavish budget and a few
yucky Tina Turner songs not a good movie make.
Clearly the series has run
out of steam and is beginning to look more like the countless imitations it
inspired than anything else. Except for an inventive fight sequence in a
bizarre arena, there's not much else that vaguely sustains interest as the
film is almost as directionless as the nomadic Max himself.
