Corrected entry: 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.
Corrected entry: The climactic chase scene at the end of the movie has us believe that the tanker being driven by Max is full of "precious fuel", which is why The Humongous and his goons are desperately trying to halt it. But during one shot, the ending of the movie is spoiled because red dirt is seen spilling from one of the pipes leading to the tank. The climax of the movie, of course, is when Max discovers that he was used as a decoy hauling dirt, not fuel. But when the dirt is seen spewing from the tanker in an earlier shot, that surprise is ruined.
Corrected entry: 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.
Corrected entry: 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.
Corrected entry: Max shoots the driver of the red XA Coupe with his shotgun. They then show the car going out of control, and cut to a close-up of the XA's windshield. The passenger of the XA is seen fighting with the steering wheel trying to get the car under control. Then it cuts back to a larger exterior shot of the car, and it's obvious that there's not even a passenger in it.RJR99SS
Corrected entry: During the final chase scene, the tanker that Max is driving has its driver's door pulled off. As the camera pans to the side you can clearly see the crew member - most likely the stunt co-ordinator - crouched down by the passenger seat.
Corrected entry: While Max is watching the compond he opens a can and eats out of it,throwing it to the dog to finish off, while the dog is eating the label goes from upside down to right way up even though only one end of the can is open.
Corrected entry: At the very moment of impact between the tanker and Humungous' car, the rest of the biker vehicles are visible, yet apparently stationary. Not only that, but they're also "parked" off the road and not very far behind. This conflicts with the short scene just prior to the impact, with the tanker barrelling down the slope towards Humungous. There aren't any vehicles behind the tanker in this scene. (01:28:29)
Corrected entry: Mad Max's V8 interceptor is actually a Ford Falcon Coupe XB GT. The turbine sticking out the hood is just a decoration, powered by an electric motor. The engine sound that you can hear in the movie is not of this car.
Corrected entry: When the gyro captain is carrying the "full" fuel cans they are obviously empty when according to the plot they contain enough fuel to get the tanker to the compound.
