Mad Max

Question: When Max comes to the hospital after his wife Jessie and their son are run over by the bikers, there is a moment when you can hear the doctor tell a nurse, "Tell him she's going to be all right." Does this mean Jessie actually lives?

Answer: Jessie was initially comatose but later died of her injuries.

Question: Whatever happened to the 2 cops from the beginning that were in the March hare pursuit vehicle? We never see them again after the beginning. Did they die when their car overturned or what?

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: Yes, they died. One of the other MFP officers says after the crash that "they're wasted".

Question: What happened to Fifi, Roop and Charlie - they are not seen or mentioned for the rest of the film?

Luka Keats

Chosen answer: We don't know - Max was on leave after his wife and child were killed. He changed into his police uniform and stole the interceptor to revenge their deaths. He did not have to see his colleagues to do this, as he had access to the police garage.

Question: Although we see that the biker gang has about 20 members when we first encounter them, why does Max only kill 7-8 bikers after his family is run down?

Answer: He kills the members of the gang directly involved in the attack on his wife/child, and the one who ordered it.

Question: Maybe a dumb question. But what exact kind of Apocalypse happens in the movie that causes all of these problems? Shortage of gas is one of them. But was it nuclear war or what? What would cause the port of Sydney Australia to dry up like it was shown in the 3rd movie? Did the whole sea dry up?

Chosen answer: It was nuclear war. Tectonic plate movement could make ports dry and flood others. None of the movies ever goes into great detail about the apocalypse.

Grumpy Scot

Continuity mistake: When Goose crashes his motorbike, he lands on his front. The previous shot shows him falling back-first.
