plot: After being forced to take part in a fight to the death, a man is exiled to the desert where upon he discovers a tribe of kids.
We go from survival of the smartest to survival of the youngest. I have to say, liked this one better then part 2. There was a tad more store and more dialogue in this one, but I'm guessing that a big car chase at the end is the trademark for these Mad Max movies then?
Things are slightly more civilized in this movie compared to the previous one, as at lest ten years seems to have past and there are "cities" being built. The fact the city is run on animal manure shows that they started to progress from just fighting over the gasoline in the previous one.
Our main bad guy, played by Tina Turner, isn't completely a typical bad guy. She starts off being humiliated by the character who runs the mining farm, and simply wants him out of her hair. But when Max fails to deliver on the hit, she comes across as having another agenda. Which, we never truly find out if she actually does, as she seems to give up the fight.
The kids tribe annoyed me. The tribe starts off with a crazy language from being isolated for so long, then suddenly mid way through the movie they can all talk normal. I found that just jarring.
what did I learn? That old Duran Duran video for Wild Boys totally makes sense now.
