Back to the Future Part III is a 1990 American science fiction western comedy film. It is the third and final installment of the Back to the Future franchise. The film was directed by Robert Zemeckis, and stars Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd, Mary Steenburgen, Thomas F. Wilson and Lea Thompson. The film continues immediately following Back to the Future Part II (1989); while stranded in 1955 during his time travel adventures, Marty McFly (Fox) discovers that his friend Dr. Emmett “Doc” Brown (Lloyd), trapped in 1885, was killed by Buford “Mad Dog” Tannen (Wilson), Biff‘s great-grandfather. Marty travels to 1885 to rescue Doc and return once again to 1985, but matters are complicated when Doc falls in love with Clara Clayton (Steenburgen).
Back to the Future Part III was filmed in California and Arizona, and was produced on a $40 million budget back-to-back with Part II. Part III was released in the United States on May 25, 1990, six months after the previous instalment, and grossed $244 million worldwide during its initial run, making it the sixth-highest-grossing film of 1990. It received a positive response from critics, who noted it as an improvement over its predecessor.

The whole middle section of the movie is pointless.

Back to the Future I stands as my favorite movie ever, and I have a podcast where I review movies.
Back to the Future II has a likeable quality that is so fun to see, even after 2015.
Back to the Future III? One of my least favorite movies EVER. First of all, Zemeckis? Were you even there when this happened? Stupid lessons like “The Future is what you make it” in a movie parents are shocked how inappropriate the first one is!? Also, Doc’s TRAIN comes through time with his wife,an actress I hate seeing, and children Jules & Verne. Maybe I was the one asleep. Let me go rewatch this.
Two Hours Later: Nope, still crap.
Biff wasn’t in this. But his actor was. Mad Dog Tannon is probably the worst movie character ever. He had no likeable qualities.
AVOID THIS CRAP!

My reviews of Part 1 and 2 explain my dislike for the writing of these movies. Sure they are blockbuster movies from the 80’s and have a powerful comedic chemistry between Fox and Lloyd, but the script is really crappy.
There was no need for a Part 2 or 3 except for a cash grab, leading to the terrible script.

I recently saw this movie at the weekend and I just found it a bit lame compared to the other 2 But what should I have expected it was quite an old movie and stuff I was also REALLY disappointed in some bits of like for example when the Delorean gets hit by a train I mean I just really hated the fact that Happened and was so agitated that I just switched the Movie off because I mean come on, Who would ever think of destroying that beautiful Delorean at the end! Whoevers idea it was to destroy it at the end was an idiot of the century I hope he got Fired from the Movie Industry and charged Billions of Dollars!
