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.
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.
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: When Max sends the feral kid out on the hood to retrieve the shotgun shells, Wez springs up and grabs his hand: however, prior to this, we see an aerial view of the truck making a u-turn, and Wez is nowhere in sight.
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.RJR99SS
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.
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.S.Holmes
