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.
New this month Other mistake: At the end of the opening chase Max starts to collect the leaking fuel from the crashed car. Only problem is, the fuel is so contaminated from the dirt in the containers he is using, it makes the fuel unusable for his car, considering his red low fuel warning light is on.
New this month Revealing mistake: During the tanker chase we go to an aerial shot behind the gyro captain and we can see on the wasteland Pappagallo getting chased - you can also see tyre tracks in the dirt from previous takes.
Factual error: It would be impossible for the Gyro Captain to completely cover himself with dirt and to leave no markings in the sand, no footprints to his location and leaving the sand flat around his hiding place as if the ground is undisturbed.
Other mistake: When Max gets out of the Interceptor at the end of the opening chase and runs back to the truck, look at his belt - he has a small axe attached to it, directly in the middle with the handle hanging straight down, which would make it impossible for him to sit in the car.
Revealing mistake: The buggy that the landau crashes into is stationary when it should be moving, also the driver has been replaced by a dummy.
Continuity mistake: When Max reverses the interceptor at the end of the opening chase the front wheels are straight. When he runs back to the truck the front wheels are now turned to the right and the side of the car is a lot cleaner.
Continuity mistake: At the end of the opening chase the landau rolls and Max skids to a stop as he passes the truck. Look at the cab - it is facing down the road, but when Max gets out the cab is now facing across the road in front of the skid marks the car has just made, indicating that the interceptor should have gone through the truck.
Continuity mistake: In the final chase scene, Lord Humungus' clothing keeps changing (in fact it's clear that the actor playing him is switching). He switches between bear arms, to wearing a sort of fur vest, to a full length sleeve shirt under the vest.
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.
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.
