Elevator Pitch At the end of BTTF II Doc in the Delorean has been struck by lightning disappeared, but in 1955 Marty gets a letter from Doc letting him know that he is stranded in 1885. He is able to go to Doc’s laboratory where they repair the Delorean and Marty goes back to the past to rescue his friend. But Doc falls in love, and does not wish to return.
Content Since Doc is due to be killed by Black Dog Tannen much of the film is about how the past must be changed, so a lot of the film features cowboy type activities, gunfights and such. There is dancing to ZZ Top and much ingenuity as they try to get the car up to 88 mph using the train.
A View I have put this movie in my MUST SEE section but actually you should start with BTTF I, then go to II and finally this feature. I have watched all three in fairly quick succession and my recommendation will allow you to get the best out of the trilogy. I smiled, chuckled and laughed throughout. It is great.
