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.
When the 78-year-old Melissa Jaffer was asked why she took a part in the film, she said, "When this role came along, I thought well, I won't get another chance like this before I die, and that's why I took it. It was absolutely wonderful."
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.
Near the end of the sandstorm chase, Nux has an inch or more of fuel sloshing around on his floorboards, and he strikes a road flare, preparing to immolate himself to stop the War Rig. Magnesium road flares constantly drop burning embers from the moment they're lit; this can even be seen in the film during a close-up. The car should have ignited the instant Nux struck the flare - even without the embers falling into the fuel on the floor, the cabin of the vehicle would have been full of explosive vapors.
The Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow Pictures logos are rendered on a rusted metal background with the sound of an engine turning over.
