In the third installment of the Mad Max series, Max is exiled from Barter Town(creative name). Once exiled he works with a group of children in an effort to overthrow the queen that screwed him over… That sounds like a straight forward story line, but this movie is super weird. Though all Mad Max movies are. Mel Gibson gives a great performance throughout, a little stony, but it was a low budget 80’s movie…. I’ll be forthright about something… I don’t like the first 2 Mad Max movies. I tried very hard, but they could not keep my attention. Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome surprised me more than most movies because I expected nothing more than what I had come to know… But, despite being very campy for today standards, it kept my attention the whole time.
