Mad Max's survival bracelet

Postby The Boss » Sat Jun 06, 2015 6:40 am

What's the deal with the survival bracelet Max wears throughout the film? I mean wouldn't it make sense that he would have used it a long time before FR scavenging in the wastelands, maybe used the paracord for catching lizards, making a boobytrap, tying his shoes or something...

It's Tom Hardy's own bracelet - He's been wearing it for years. :)
But maybe Max used it, then rebraided it for safe keeping?

I liked George Miller allowed Tom Hardy to wear the bracelet on-screen throughout the movie. It adds depth to the character of Max.

Here is an idea for Dr. Miller: Max has different flashbacks in Mad Max: The Wasteland. One of individuals Max sees is The Goose in MFP uniform and helmet that has the face cover closed, blocking Goose's face. The audience can see Goose is wearing a paracord bracelet. There are two paths to take with this idea. Max and Goose each wore one, or the bracelet Max wears in Mad Max: Fury Road is the one Goose wore. :mrgreen:

I knew about Hardy wearing one and bringing it into the role, it's just everytime I see it on him in the movie, pics ect...I can't help but think it seems slightly unrealistic, b/c wouldn't he have had used it at some point by now in all those years living as a scavenging, survivalist nomad of the wasteland

Well, yeah, but as I say, you can use paracord more than once! You use it, then put it back in bracelet form so you won't lose it and will have it handy for the next paracord-requiring emergency :)
