New this month Continuity mistake: The amount of dirt on the interceptor and engine blower changes throughout the opening chase scene from very dirty to clean on close up shots, and dirty again on the sides.
Continuity mistake: When the tanker crashes at the end the driver is clearly wearing a crash helmet.
Visible crew/equipment: In the famous stunt scene where the motorcycle driver flips end over end, you can see the blue pad the stunt driver is supposed to land on. Only in the Widescreen version. Not visible in the full frame version.
Revealing mistake: When Max has the head on at the end you see a shot from in front of the truck to show the impact. Look at the cars and bikes behind that should be moving as they are chasing the truck - the motorbike riders and cars are stationary; the motorbike riders even have their feet on the ground.
Other mistake: The climactic chase scene at the end of the movie has us believe that the tanker being driven by Max is full of "precious fuel", which is why The Humongous and his goons are desperately trying to halt it. But during one shot, the ending of the movie is spoiled because red dirt is seen spilling from one of the pipes leading to the tank. The climax of the movie, of course, is when Max discovers that he was used as a decoy hauling dirt, not fuel. But when the dirt is seen spewing from the tanker in an earlier shot, that surprise is ruined.
Visible crew/equipment: After Papagallo tells the warrior woman to get rid of Max you can see Max's' V8 being towed into the compound and reflected on the side you can see a cameraman holding a camera then a second later as the shot changes to the side of the car a boom mic is visible also reflected on the car.
