    Although Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome, the third part of George Miller's post-apocalyptic Mad Max trilogy, is certainly the least of the bunch (Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior is the undisputed masterpiece, and maybe the best action movie ever made), it has still got a good share of imaginative industrial-wasteland-pastiche imagery. And casting Tina Turner as Aunty Entity, the queen of Bartertown, was a masterstroke. Mel Gibson's character Max is pitted in a battle to the death against the bizarre Master Blaster in the Thunderdome, flying around on rubbery straps inside a sort of gigantic overturned colander with bloodthirsty spectators clinging to the outside. Miller's producing partner, Byron Kennedy, was killed in a helicopter crash while scouting locations for this film. Miller was devastated, only agreeing to direct the action sequences--and, somehow, you feel his heart wasn't entirely in it. --Jim Emerson

The pilot Keller (Robert Powell) manages to avoid total catastrophe by bringing the aircraft down in a field but even so the resulting fire from a ruptured fuel tank ensures that from the plane at least there are no survivors. Except one: the pilot himself. Totured with guilt and unable to explain the reason for the disaster Keller sets upon a course of discovery desperately seeking to overcome the temporary loss of memory that he has sustained. Hobbs (Jennt Agutter) a young woman who tries to help Keller to unravel the mysteries of both his flight and the local events. But tragedy compounds upon tragedy as it seems that the dead passengers will not release their grip on Keller nor on anyone who stands in the path of his investigations. In a final confrontation with both his dead passengers and the responsiblity for the crash the truth is revealed. The collective personality of the dead can rest in peace. And so can Keller....
