Back to the Future

Back to the Future

(1985)

Marty McFly just broke the time barrier. He's only got one week to get it fixed.

The brilliant first chapter of Robert Zemeckis' peerless Back to the Future trilogy. Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) is blasted to 1955 in the DeLorean time machine invented by Doc Brown (Christopher Lloyd). There he bumps into his young mum (Lea Thompson) and dad (Crispin Glover) and finds himself mixed up in a time-shattering chain reaction that could destroy his own future and leave him trapped in the past.

  • Zemeckis is able both to keep the story moving and to keep it from going too far. He handles Back to the Future with the kind of inventiveness that indicates he will be spinning funny, whimsical tall tales for a long time to come. Full Review

  • Pitch-perfect scripting, pacing and performances conclusively prove it don’t take money to make a blockbuster for the ages. Full Review

  • Performances by the earnest Fox, the lunatic Lloyd, the deceptively passionate Lea Thompson, and, particularly, the bumbling-to-confident Glover, who runs away with the picture, merrily keep the ship sailing. Full Review
