“Back to the Future Part III” (1990)

This is an unnecessary film. It carries a dose of nostalgia and emotions for fans of the previous back to the future films, in which i include myself, but that’s its only edge. You’d need to know and relate to the characters from the other films in other to mildly appreciate this one, and that is not a very good sign.

Zemeckis/Gale are not genius, or masters of their craft. They started in the shadow of Spielberg fantasy business. But the first two Bttf were novel in the pace they gave to their comedy development. It’s how everything juxtaposes that the fun lies. The second film does something even better, and unseen, which is to literally place a film over another. That was great, and the best narrative achievement these guys did.

This one brings nothing new or interesting. Yes we still have the energy and amazing vitality of Michael J. Fox and Chris Lloyd, and, even due to more shared screen time, they probably pair better here than on the previous two. But there is no catch, the related characters (Biff, the McFlys) are just direct mirrors to the future ones. The edge is gone. They probably had studio pressure to do this, but they knew they didn’t have much more to say. And the prove is that i’ve recently re seen the trilogy and this one is old and worn out and not funny anymore, unlike the other two.

My opinion: 2/5
