A western about time travel. Good thing I didn't have high expectations.I loved the first movie in this trilogy. The second one was almost as good. So imagine my disapointment when I first viewed this flick.
In the end of the second movie, everything is just peachy and the Doc and Marty are ready to head back to their regular time, when all of a sudden the Delorean is struck by lightning. It vanishes, leaving Marty alone. He's soon approached by a man with a letter for him; it's from Doc - in the year 1885. It turns out that the lightning caused the time mechanism to malfunction, and sent the Doc far into the past. Soon after this, Marty discovers that Doc will be killed in the past a week after he writes the letter, and of course he has to save him.
The premise for this movie was weak to begin with, and it didn't get much better. It wasn't helped by the pathetic attempt at a love story, as a school teacher is introduced as a love interest for Doc. I didn't care about her at all, and found myself not in the least bit of suspense about whether they'd get back or not.Check this out only if you're the kind of person who HAS to see all 3 films in a trilogy. Otherwise, skip it.
