71 mistakes

New this month Factual error: There's no way the gyro helicopter could carry 2 men and four jerrycans of petrol across a desert. It is only built for one person and would never lift off. And where would they put the second person and petrol anyway?

New this month Factual error: It's impossible for the Gyro captain's helicopter to land in the compound the way it did. Those type of helicopters can't hover like normal ones and have to land on runways due to their speed. It can't just land on the ground directly.

New this month Continuity mistake: When Max leaves the compound and is being pursued by Wez and Toadie, the ground is flat as far as the eye can see. When Max's car begins to roll, the ground is still flat. Suddenly Max winds up in a deep terrain which came from nowhere and wasn't seen in any previous shots.

New this month 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.

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!".

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.

Continuity mistake: After his crash, Max is hiding behind a rock. He draws his shotgun out, and you can see he has no glove on his right hand. Then the interceptor explodes, and he shields his face with his right hand, which now has a glove on it.

Revealing mistake: When the tanker crashes at the end the driver is clearly wearing a crash helmet.

Continuity mistake: When Max sneaks up on the raider who's sitting at the wrecked dune buggy with the dying woman and man, look at the crossbow on the ground. At first it's unloaded. Then when the raider sees Max, he reaches for it and it's suddenly loaded and ready to fire.

Continuity mistake: When Max's interceptor rolls down the hill, on its last roll you can see one of the fuel doors pop open (which should actually set off the booby trap and cause the car to explode). When Toadie arrives to look at the tanks, both the doors are now closed.

Visible crew/equipment: In the famous stunt scene where the motorcycle driver flips end over end, you can see the blue pad the stunt driver is supposed to land on. Only in the Widescreen version. Not visible in the full frame version.

Revealing mistake: When the gyro captain crashes, the rotor on the craft is already bent before it hits the ground.

Continuity mistake: Throughout the whole film, Max's interceptor has windshield wipers attached sometimes, and sometimes it doesn't. Probably because they were using more than one interceptor for the movie.

Visible crew/equipment: In the final truck chase scene, Wez shoots Warrior Woman with a quad-barrel arrow gun. In the shot where the arrows impact on her, a guide wire for one of the arrows (red-tailed one) is visible.

Continuity mistake: When Pappagallo has agreed to let Max drive the escape truck and the tanker is prepared to go, Warrior Woman is seen in her perch on top. In the very next shot (distance change) she is seen in the background just climbing to the top of the tanker. (Pan and scan misses this detail.)

Continuity mistake: The one shot that shows Max's car approaching and colliding with the rear of the landau coupe in the opening chase scene is reversed. The car has one door mirror on the driver's side (right) but here we see the mirror on the left, as is the car's driver. The blower's belt is on the right side when it should be on the left.

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: When the gyro thing is in the air and that bloke grabs the snake you can clearly see that it is a rubber snake.

Add time

Visible crew/equipment: In the initial chase of the semi, as we see the view from the Gyro copter viewpoint, just before the semi turns, the camera and operator are plainly visible in the buggy behind the motorcycle.

Movie Nut

Revealing mistake: When the warrior woman cuts the bikers throat who is trying to grab the woman through the side window of the van its obvious that the knife does not even touch the mans throat, its positioned at his chest and she doesn't even cut the clothing he's wearing.
