Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome 
Not the greatest sequel but still entertaining!!
3/4 stars

Although not being my fave of the series this edition to the tale is still effective. Set once again in the beautiful backdrop of Australia, director Miller once again sets out to continue the tale of lonely hero Max Rockatansky. I guess i was originally p'eed off due to the fact that this film (I guess much due to the fact that it was more popular within the States) was too Americanized. The original two films were not and aside from Mel Gibson (Max) and Bruce Spence the rest of the cast were virtuall unknowns and to me that is why they are so great. This time 'round director Miller decided to cast a big name to go side by side with Gibson (Who at the time was just starting to rocket to super stardom) and that was super '80's pop diva Tina Turner as chief antagonist Aunty Entity.

Although Turner does show us some acting chops which in turn shows off how mutli talented she is..this movie falls short of what the original two provided and goes in a new direction, a more western film culture then staying Auzzy something i believe was a mistake. We still get a thrilling car chase (Which is the whole reason i was drawn to this series in the beginning) not bad storyline..the movie just in my opinion falls short somewhere.
