Storyline

An apocalyptic story set in the furthest reaches of our planet, in a stark desert landscape where humanity is broken, and almost everyone is crazed fighting for the necessities of life. Within this world exist two rebels on the run who just might be able to restore order. There's Max, a man of action and a man of few words, who seeks peace of mind following the loss of his wife and child in the aftermath of the chaos. And Furiosa, a woman of action and a woman who believes her path to survival may be achieved if she can make it across the desert back to her childhood homeland. Written by Production

Trivia

When 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." See more »

Goofs

Max's tattoo in the beginning of the movie says that he is 10 hands tall. If one used the current equestrian measurement of one hand (the width) being four inches, it would mean that Max was 3'4" tall - which he clearly isn't. In the film, however, there are no references to horses nor any signs of them, thus no reason to assume the equestrian measurement is being used (or even known about). If the length of a hand were used instead of the width, ten hands would be about right. Fingertip to heel of an adult male hand is roughly seven inches which would make ten hands a measurement of 5'10", whereas Tom Hardy is actually 5'9" tall. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Max Rockatansky: [Narrating] 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.

Crazy Credits

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. See more »

Mad Max is a "movie" -- a plethora of titillating fun.

The barren landscape beyond the end of the world is apparently the most robust playground to create deeply dynamic moving images. Mad Max is a "movie" -- a plethora of titillating fun. All performances fall in line and unequivocally mount to form the beating heart of this monster. After seeing it in cinemas, at home and in airplanes, I can tell you Mad Max is grand in all its forms. It is a pure pleasure.
