After being exiled from the most advanced town in post apocalyptic Australia, a drifter travels with a group of abandoned children to rebel against the town's queen.
Max's eyes are different; the pupil in his left eye is permanently dilated. This is a nod to Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior (1981): When his car is forced off the road by Wez and Max crashes, he suffers a severe injury to, among other body parts, his left eye. The disparity is easier to see in close-ups, and very easy to see in high definition versions of the film. In the regular version, it's most prominent when Max first looks down on the Thunderdome.
This is no enemy. It's almost family.
Max: Oh, I see, real civilized!
Aunty Entity: The reasons don't concern you, only the conditions. Do you want the deal or not?
The Collector: The first is, no one knows you're working for Aunty. You hit him, you go. The second is, it's a fair ...
When Max walks in the desert, we see him holding the monkey at his chest. However, when he abruptly falls, there is no sign of the monkey jumping from him, but we then see it alive and safe at the children's cave.
Mel Gibson, who plays Mad Max, is listed again among the Stunt Crew in the End Credits.
Scenes filmed but cut from the final film: Max comforting the dying Ghekko while facing Bartertown from the desert dunes and telling him it's Tomorrowmorrow land (this scene can be glimpsed in the Tina Turner video for We Don't Need Another Hero.) Max waking in Crack in Earth in the middle of the night and remembering his wife Jessie and crying, realising he is no better than the people he has hunted for so long.
