Corrected entry: Near the end, the little boy and Mad Max crash in the diesel truck driving the opposite direction from the escaping convoy to act as a decoy. Humungous and his crew were chasing them and the gyro captain was shot down and crashed his gyro during the chase, but somehow the little boy and the gyro captain made it back to the convoy past Humungous's gang before sunset without a vehicle as the ending shows with the boy in the back of the van and the gyro captain driving it.
Corrected entry: When Max and the gyro captain come back to the gyrocopter after Max leaves the compound, Max puts a bullet he finds into his shotgun. During the ensuing conversation Max threatens the gyro cap. He atempts to holster the gun, but misses horribly, and while the gyro captain is flapping about "aerodynamics", Max ad libs "shut up, shut up" and points the gun that was supposed to holstered.
Corrected entry: In the beginning narration, the narrators says "...and it was in this wasteland that he learned to live again" (Max). However, by the end of the movie, it seems to be a pretty strong message that Max hasn't changed at all, and is no better than the rouges that he was fighting.
Corrected entry: Starting with the wounded Papagello, he remarks, "Just get them organised. We're moving out tonight." It's obvious this happens around dusk (let's say, 6:00pm). Now, this opens a bunch of plot problems: (A) the mechanics get 12 hours to complete their repairs. This makes moving out no earlier than 6:00am. (B) Max juices up and drives out at dawn; it took him all night to leave? Seems he couldn't wait to leave. (C) Max gets chased, crashes, gets rescued, then offers to drive the truck while it's still daylight. The "refinery squatters" don't leave until the NEXT morning. So, instead of "leaving tonight", they end up leaving much later than Papagello's original order. Summary - Papagello never corrects his original estimation. (00:54:11)
Corrected entry: What's the matter with Papagallo in the end? Just before Humongous closes in for kill right behind him, he shouts to Feral Kid (who's still of course in the tanker's cabin with Max): "Come on, kid. It's all over." and so on, though all around him there are still numerous marauders alive and well, let alone the Big Boss, Humongous, his killer.
