The third film in the original Mad Max trilogy is set in the same post-apocalyptic universe, where mysterious events have plunged the world into a parched nuclear summer. Ex-cop turned vigilante Max (Mel Gibson) is scavenging in the Australian desert when he is captured and brought to the corrupt ruler of a local town, Aunty Entity (Tina Turner). On Entity’s orders, Max is sent to battle one of her enemies, Master Blaster, in a gladiatorial arena called Thunderdome.
