Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome

Revealing mistake: As Ironbar shoots into the conduit where the kids are, the spots where the spark charges to simulate the bullets hitting are visible.

Movie Nut

Revealing mistake: At the start when Max is knocked of his truck, the plane circles and the shot switches to in front of the camels. If you look at the ground you can see the tyre tracks from previous takes.

Revealing mistake: When Savanna first finds Max in the desert studio lighting is seen behind her - this is too low and bright to be light from the moon and can't be light from anything else as they are in the desert miles from anywhere.

Continuity mistake: When Master is lowered into the pigs den he is clean in the first shot. In the next shot as he is being lowered he is covered with mud and pig droppings. It is that he has already been down in the den between these two shots.

More trivia for Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome

Question: Is the airplane captain supposed to be the "Gyro-captain" from "Mad Max 2"? (a.k.a. "The Road Warrior" in America) This would explain why Max says "You." when he first sees him, but I still do not know, as they say at the end of Mad Max 2 that no one ever saw him again.

Answer: The airplane captain is not the "Gyro-captain". Max says "you" in Mad Max 2 because he saw him earlier in the movie. In Beyond Thunderdome, it never says who or what happened to the real airplane captain.
