Back to the Future Part III, 1990. Time travelers try to get home from the old west.

Concept: B
Story: D
Characters: C
Dialog: C
Pacing: C
Cinematography: C
Special effects/design: Bad effects, good design. C
Acting: Almost every line is yelled. BECAUSE IT'S EXCITING! D
Music: C
Enjoyment: Part II tried and failed to recapture what the original had going. Part III doesn't even bother. They probably meant it to be the climactic action-packed third act of the trilogy, except that the action scenes are unambitious, even if you're only comparing it to other Back to the Future movies. Comedy is almost nonexistent. C

GPA: 1.9/4
