Mad Max 2 (1981)

Ending / spoiler

(6 votes)

After a long bloody car chase, Lord Humungus and most of his gang are killed; Max and the Feral Kid survive, though Pappagallo (the leader) is killed. Max's tanker was carrying sand and not the fuel. Per Pappagallo's plan, the gas was transferred into 55-gallon drums and stashed in the other vehcles in the compound. The Gyro Captain survives being shot from the sky during the car chase and takes over Pappagallo's position as leader of the "Great Northern Tribe"; in the course of time, the Feral Kid succeeds him. Max is left in the road.

Visible crew/equipment: When Wez rips the door off the tanker you can see a crouched crew member next to Max. This has been disputed but it is there, watch underneath the steering wheel just after Wez starts shouting "Go! Go! Go!". (01:19:05)

Humungus: I am gravely disappointed. Again you have made me unleash my dogs of war.

More quotes from Mad Max 2

Trivia: You might have to look close, but the Gyro Captain's copter is completely covered with pornographic pictures. It took many viewings for me to notice this. Apparently he's very sexually motivated, as later in the movie he complains that the only thing he really misses from the old world is lingerie, and the only reason he joins the escapees in the end is because he wants to be with the cute blond girl.

Question: Early in the movie Max finds an abandoned truck with graffiti on its side saying "The Vermin Have Inherited the Earth". Is this a reference to something?

Answer: Maybe the Judeo-Christian bible "The meek shall inherit the earth" (Matt 5:5). Not much of a stretch that someone in that environment would change meek to vermin.
