I just watched all three Mad Max
movies, and I can now confirm, with confidence, that while the first two are pretty good, Beyond Thunderdome
just totally, totally, totally sucks ass. Even the first third of the movie --
the only part that doesn't induce constant cringing and gagging --
is a weak re-hash of the first third The Road Warrior
. Yeah, the bunjee fight was cool. But what about the other hour and forty minutes?
And what the hell is up with Bruce Spence playing the exact same character in 2 and 3 -- except that they're supposed to be different people! Geez. You know how you can tell them apart? He has better teeth in the third movie.
I am now praying they don't make another. There's only one direction a fourth movie could go: even more precocious children.
