Mad Max: Fury Road
Mad Max: Fury Road mistake picture

Continuity mistake: In the final chase, we see Max taking the arrow out of his hand and Furiosa pulling the knife out of herself. A few shots later, Furiosa is changing gears and moving the rig to the left of Max's rig. In that shot, the knife is still lodged in her body.

Continuity mistake: When Max sits on the back of Furiosa and loads the clip in the gun, the chain is visible around his right leg, but when he fires, the chain is no longer there.

Continuity mistake: Joe's windshield takes 2 bullets and slightly spiderwebs, later there is no damage.

Visible crew/equipment: When the War Rig slams into the Volkswagen with the flamethrower it breaks apart and flips. When the Volkswagen flips over a camera flies off.

Visible crew/equipment: A group of the crew can be seen on the right side of the canyon while the camera flies in from the back of the group of cars to the front of the collapsed canyon entry.

Factual error: At the end of the sand storm scene the flare is left on the ground stationary despite being in a sand storm that has been lifting people and cars off the ground.

Audio problem: When Mad Max says "How much more can they take from me? They've got my blood. Now it's my car!" The audio does not match his lip movements. The line sounds like a dub recorded in an audio studio.

Continuity mistake: Furiousa's face is not bloodied anymore after she is knocked to the ground with a big thud after her tussle with Max. It goes from bloody, to not so bloody during the fight, to non-existent by the end of the sequence.

Factual error: Nux fills the bottom of his car with petrol then lights a flare but nothing happens - the fuel should have ignited from the fumes being given off, it wouldn't need to come in contact with the liquid directly. The driver is sitting in a confined space with windows and doors shut when he lights the flare and we see the petrol sloshing about the floor of the car about an inch deep and fumes rise upwards to where the flare is.

Revealing mistake: When Imortan Joe's body is thrown from the car by Max at the end, if you look closely when the crowd rush in it's just his costume there and no body.

Add time

Continuity mistake: The amount of silver paint sprayed on Nux's mouth changes between shots through out the whole film to dark, light and not there at all - it's car paint and should be hard to remove.

Add time

Continuity mistake: The amount of water coming out of the pipes is considerably less when we see it reach the bottom and that's allowing for some drifting off on the way down. The force of the water is different as well, more like from firehose pipes than a waterfall.

Add time

Continuity mistake: The amount of black axle grease on Furiosa's face changes all the time throughout the film to very dark, light, and not there at all. In one scene we see her apply it from the steering wheel column in the following scenes it's nearly gone. Axle grease is very hard to remove.

Add time

Continuity mistake: When Nux is driving through the sandstorm he sees the War Rig driving parallel to his right side in the distance so he turns and makes a b-line straight for it. But in the very next shot, Nux is coming up right behind the War Rig, not from the side.

Suggested correction: The war rig is seen going off to Nux's right so when he catches up to it he would be behind it.

Continuity mistake: When approaching the rock arch at the end of the film the guys on the motorbikes are waiting, but the shot shows the large arch on the left and the war rig approaching from the other side. The large arch is on the left-hand side when it is blown up earlier, so the war rig is coming from the wrong direction - from the citadel side.

Continuity mistake: When Max gets out the car at the end, we are supposedly seeing this through the POV of the telescope. However, we see two completely different angles that would be impossible to see from the same telescope that is in the same position fixed to the ground.

Add time

Continuity mistake: When Furiosa is explaining to Max about the kill switches when the war rig is stopped, she begins to put her mechanic arm on. When the view changes, she is again beginning to put it on.

Add time

Continuity mistake: The bloodline between Max and Nux is entangled with the chain, but after the fight with Furiosa, when Max is sitting on her back, there is a shot where the bloodline is free from the chain. Later it's entangled again. Also the line is less than 2 ft long after Nux cut the chain, but at the end, when Max is preparing the transfusion it's much longer.

Continuity mistake: In the end chase the fuel rig starts to explode and Max jams the throttle with the people eater's foot and jumps to the war rig as the fuel rig is completely engulfed in flames and the trailer starts to explode. Moments later when Max is fighting the pole cat, the fuel rig isn't on fire so much and explodes a second time.

Audio problem: When Max is on the front of the people eater's truck, the gunman shoots at Max, then briefly stops. When he starts shooting again, the sound effects of the shooting are too early, as there are no flashes from the gun.

Add time

Continuity mistake: During the final chase sequence when Max is on the front of the Doof Wagon, the wires hanging in front of the speakers change from a single black cable to many twisted multicolored wires between many of the shots.

01:42:00

Continuity mistake: When Immortan Joe's body is thrown from the car it lies parallel with it, but when the crowd rush in it's now at an angle, with his feet pointing away from the side of the car.

Add time

Continuity mistake: When Max jumps from the War Rig to the front of the People Eater's limousine the metal accent on the far left of the bumper goes from angled to straight.

01:37:00

Other mistake: During Max's scrap with Furiosa he gets hold of what is a Glock, judging by the pattern of the grooves on the slide. The magazine is ejected and the remaining round in the chamber is fired at the truck as they fight. This would cause the slide of the Glock to lock back after the final round is fired. Moments later, Nux grabs the the magazine and holds it still while Max works the Glock over the top of it as he sits on top of Furiosa. To then chamber the top round, Max would only need to use his thumb to press the small slide release lever on the left side of the Glock. Instead, he reaches behind himself with the Glock in his hand and releases the slide in some fancy, indeterminable, and completely unnecessary way (perhaps by swiping the slide release lever against his boot), before firing some rounds next to Furiosa's head.

New today Suggested correction: With the magazine out, the slide will not stay back since the magazine follower isn't pressing up on the slide stop. What Max does is correct, he inserts a new magazine into the Glock with the slide closed and no round in the chamber. To fire he has to rack the slide first, which is what he does.

Continuity mistake: Towards the end of the film, when Max is fighting the guitar playing doof warrior on the doof wagon and the guy loses his guitar, it then cuts to a front shot of the action on the vehicles in front of the 'band wagon' but in the background the guitar guy is still playing, it then cuts back to Max fighting him without his guitar.
