Continuity mistake: When Pappagallo has agreed to let Max drive the escape truck and the tanker is prepared to go, Warrior Woman is seen in her perch on top. In the very next shot (distance change) she is seen in the background just climbing to the top of the tanker. (Pan and scan misses this detail.)
Continuity mistake: The one shot that shows Max's car approaching and colliding with the rear of the landau coupe in the opening chase scene is reversed. The car has one door mirror on the driver's side (right) but here we see the mirror on the left, as is the car's driver. The blower's belt is on the right side when it should be on the left.

Continuity mistake: At the end of the opening chase Max gets out of his car and runs back to the crashed car, if you look at the sign on the left at the bottom there are two large rocks supporting the legs and one in the middle. From the front looking at Max the the two rocks have disappeared and the one in the middle has moved to the right leg.
Continuity mistake: When the cars leave the compound and are chased down, Max and the Gyro Captain watch the following events unfold from the hillside. Max takes the telescope from the Gyro Captain and looks at the compound, outside in front of the ditch is a pink four door sedan, but when Max walks to the entrance the sedan has been replaced by the black Landau from the opening chase and the other car has disappeared. Continuous scene so no time to swap cars.
Continuity mistake: When Max turns the truck around at the end, Wes is nowhere to be seen, but he suddenly appears just before the head on bang. The gap between the front ram and the road is to narrow for him to be underneath.
Continuity mistake: At the end of the opening chase the Landau crashes into a road sign taking out the bottom arrow pointing to the right. When Max gets out of the interceptor and runs back the bottom arrow is back in place.
Continuity mistake: During the opening chase Max drives through some wreckage. If you look at the driver's side of the interceptor the side exhaust pipes are missing and there appears to be a metal bar there instead, running from the front wheel to the back.
Continuity mistake: When Max arrives at the compound he gets out of the interceptor and closes the door. When asked to turn around the door is open.
Continuity mistake: When Max leaves the compound and is being pursued by Wez and Toadie, the ground is flat as far as the eye can see. When Max's car begins to roll, the ground is still flat. Suddenly Max winds up in a deep terrain which came from nowhere and wasn't seen in any previous shots.Gavin Jackson
Continuity mistake: After the Golden Youth is killed by the boomerang his forehead shows the wound right across his head, but when the gang leave the body is dragged round and the would to the forehead is missing.
Continuity mistake: When Max walks over to the auto gyro, from the overhead shot there is only one set of footprints in the sand leading away and the rest of the sand looks like it's been raked, then when the Gyro Captain appears the sand is covered in footprints.
The Gyro Captain: No! It's my snake, I trained it, I'm going to eat it! I got a recipe for snake. Delicious. Fricassee of reptile. You are what you eat.
