I did a bit of research into the term "Ace" from an aviation point of view and wikipedia threw up this:

Source - http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flying_ace


"While aces are generally thought of exclusively as fighter pilots, some have accorded this status to gunners on bombers or reconnaissance aircraft, observers/gunners in two-seater fighters such as the early Bristol F.2b, and airborne weapons officers in aircraft like the F-4 Phantom. Because pilots often teamed with different air crew members, an observer or gunner might have been an ace while his pilot was not, or vice versa. Observer aces constitute a sizable minority in many lists. Charles George Gass, who tallied 39 victories, was the highest scoring observer ace in World War I."

Now I am wondering if our "Ace" is a War Rig Observer? Scanning the horizon for potentially hostile vehicles, ambushes etc "Ace" alerted Furiosa when he saw the Citadel Distress signals to Gas Town and the Bullet Farm he also alerted people to the Buzzards presence when the War Rig went off road. It is up to him to repel any attacks on the War Rig with his crew and let the driver concentrate on driving.

So Ace might be a nickname, whilst Nux shouts his real name "Grew of Frew" as he warns him to get out if the way just before trying to shoot Furiosa...just a thought I had.

Another one: Rictus yells a couple sentences at Immortem Joe before they enter the toxic storm:

"She thinks she can...blah blah...dad...She thinks we're stupid!! She thinks she can....blah blah blah?

Anybody catch it?


Another:

Nux after saying "what a lovely day!", says a few sentences that are hard to make out. (as he prepares the suicide mode) Then he finishes with "Witness me bloodbank!"

another, while moving max from front of the car:

Slit: blah blah.."hey head say bye bye to the neck" blah blah

Nux: blah blah Slit

Rictus says
She thinks she can lose us, dad! She thinks we're stupid! She thinks she can lose us in there!


Nux:
I am the man who grabs the Sun. Riding to Valhalla!


Slit & Nux
Slit: "Hey head! Say bye by to the neck! Decapito!"
Nux: "We're going in, Slit!"

I found a page with all the dialogue. I don't know if it's entirely accurate but it might be helpful

Thanks guys (and everybody else who helps on my queries- I just don't want to clutter up threads). The subtitle website is particularly useful!

That scripts kinda wrong here and there, cause Ace says "Today we're carrying PRODUCE" not Fruits and vegetables hahaha

I second that. Having read it all, it's helpful but imperfect. It misses lines here and there, too.

Yeah, but you know how scripts are - if you've ever read the script to MAD MAX 2 you'll know that when they get on set, it sometimes gets thrown out hahaha :D

The actor you speak of is Jonathan Iles..... and he is in fact an Aussie.
IMBD have recorded the wrong actor for the part of Ace.
I know this to be 100% true. ;)
