This most complex and intellectually ambitious entry in the Max saga ends up being the least substantial, tossing off ideas in a way designed to explain things without making you think about them—exactly the opposite approach from that of the first two films, which left most of the back-story unexplained and, despite the emphasis on raw, physical action, made you think a great deal. This Max, by contrast, is all in fun. But, to be fair, the film has an enthralling look and feel to it.
