A woman rebels against a tyrannical ruler in postapocalyptic Australia in search for her home-land with the help of a group of female prisoners, a psychotic worshipper, and a drifter named Max.
Tom Hardy had been considered for the role of John Connor in Terminator Genisys (2015). James Cameron, the director and creator of the "Terminator" franchise had cited The Road Warrior (1981) as one of his influences behind The Terminator (1984).
My name is Max. My world is fire and blood. Once, I was a cop. A road warrior searching for a righteous cause. As the world fell, each of us in our own way was broken. It was hard to know who was more crazy... me... or everyone else.
After the wives toss Nux out of the War Rig, he gets up almost immediately and starts running towards the approaching war party. Sand may be soft when you walk on it, but if a body hits sand from a considerable height or while moving forwards at even a fast sprint, hitting the sand will be like hitting pavement, and it will cause blunt-force trauma. The shirtless Nux should have come away with - at a minimum - a severe case of road rash, and probably some broken bones.
Near the end of the credits there is a memorial dedication that reads "Lance Allen Moore II, May 24, 1987 - March 10, 2015." Apparently Moore was a Mad Max fan killed in a motorcycle accident near Silverton, New South Wales, Australia, where Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior (1981) was filmed.
