Mad Max 2

Other mistake: When Max is making his escape from the compound in the Interceptor, he turns on the blower to speed through the bad guys' camp. Here you can see everyone running at fast-forward speed.

Other mistake: Max had already driven his car a distance along the highway before he crashed. When the Gyro captain spots the smoke the next morning, it's coming from behind the hill which is way too close and suggests that Max crashed right after passing the knight riders.

Other mistake: As the pink Chevy is blasted with flame from above, all the fire is on the hood, and top of the car. But the explosion is from the tank under the car. The body and hood would have shielded the tank.

Movie Nut

Other mistake: The amount of vehicles leaving the compound at the end doesn't make sense and the amount of fuel they carry is far less than they could carry in the tanker. The amount of vehicles they use apart from the bus being used as the gate are never seen parked in the compound throughout the film, they just appear when needed.

Continuity mistake: When the rear window of the semi is smashed, you can see in the very next shot that the chain of Wez's ball mace is already hanging from the ceiling to Max's right, long before Wez even starts swinging it and leaves it hanging there after he is killed.

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.
