Back to the Future Part III

The final episode of Robert Zemeckis' genius time-travelling adventure trilogy. With the Doc residing in 1885, Marty is pitted against the ruthlessness of the Wild West as he journeys back in time once again to find his friend.

Stranded in 1955, Marty (Michael J. Fox) receives a message; detailing the peaceful life that Doc Brown (Christopher Lloyd) has been living in his favourite time period - the late 19th Century. However, the Doc is also destined to be killed by the outlaw 'Mad Dog' Tannen (Thomas F. Wilson), prompting Marty to travel back to 1885, prevent the murder, and get the Doc to help him return to 1985.

Recovers the style, wit and grandiose fantasy elements of the original.

A little twee, but more engaging in its reversal of Marty and the Doc’s characters and its beautifully quirky 1885 finale – a film that could “challenge any other western,” quoth The Spielbeard.

Makes a few bows in the direction of time-travel complexities, and then settles down to be a routine Western comedy.

A clever and enjoyable wrapping-up of the time-travelling adventures.

Treat the trilogy as just two movies - the original one and then Parts II and III together - and you've got what is deservedly one of the most popular double acts in cinema history.
