Mad Max: Fury Road Scene 12

Scene 12

Scene 12

  • Back in the truck, Max seems relieved to be finally on his way…
  • ... until the truck sputters and dies.
  • Furiosa catches up with him and tells them she's installed kill switches, so no one can drive it but her. Dummy.
  • Max tells her that she can get in, but Furiosa wont leave without the women.
  • So Max weighs his options. He decides they can just wait for Immortan Joe to show up, and maybe he'll set Max free in exchange for returning his breeders.
  • Furiosa points out that Max is "relying on the gratitude of a very bad man," who probably won't be all that happy that Max shot at—and lightly wounded—his pregnant breeder.
  • Max weighs his options—or lack thereof—once more, and decides to throw in his lot with Furiosa and the women. He lets them back into the cab, all while holding a gun to Furiosa, and she continues driving again.
  • As they drive away, we cut back to Nux, who's left alone in the desert. He takes off at a run and manages to catch up with the War Rig. He jumps on and hides himself.
  • Back in the cab, Max collects all the guns and weapons so that the women can't get the drop on him.
