These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Alternate Character Interpretation: While most viewers take it for granted that Max's wife is mortally wounded in the end of the first film, it's actually not certain. The doctor states that she's "salvageable" in spite of her catastrophic injuries. This puts Max's Roaring Rampage of Revenge in a different light, given that he might actually have a critically injured wife still alive and counting on him to survive. The sequels wipe this away by making Max's entire family unambiguously dead, giving him truly nothing to lose.
Awesome Music: The music for The Road Warrior's opening narration is both bleak and stirring at the same time.
