A boom mic dips down to catch the Collector saying, "Leave your weapons here; it's the law," casting a very visible shadow on the far left of the frame (over the sign saying "PARK YOUR WEAPONS HERE"). See more »
Third "Mad Max" film doesn't measure up, as Max finds himself in a violent and corrupt town, run by a despotic woman(Tina Turner, a peculiar choice, but does sing the title song.) where he is forced to fight in Thunderdome for his survival, only to be banished to the desert, where he is rescued by a group of orphaned children, whom he must help.
Film is technically well-made, and Mel Gibson tries, but film lacks energy and purpose, and is also slow, with not enough action to compensate. Max seems sidelined here, and Mel Gibson, though still game, looks disinterested, and who can blame him? Not enough story here to engage the viewer, and so it feels lethargic. A pity.
