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: Near the end of the movie when Max is clearing a path for the plane he leans out of the right side of the vehicle preparing to jump clear of the impending crash. When it does show him jumping, he is jumping from the left side of the vehicle.

Question: I find it interesting that part of the final chase is against a modified truck on a set of rails. I saw no rails in the wide shots of Bartertown, and no exits for the the truck. So, where was the exit, why use a modified truck for power when it was never cranked, and how did the kid know to be prepared for the truck, or any rail traffic, at all?

Movie Nut

Chosen answer: The train tracks would have been covered by dirt for not being used for years. The truck was already cranked, as the engine was source for the generating power and lights. The exit was boarded up and the truck ripped through it. The kids were not prepared, but did observe what the adults were doing and could have been given instructions on what to do.
