Continuity mistake: When the Terminator arrives on earth, his position differs between the first and second shot, with his left leg protruding more/less and his back crouched/slightly raised.

Audio problem: When Myles is shot at in his home, after he ducks, the window behind him breaks and smoke comes outs as if a bullet had gone through, but no sound is heard. (01:32:50)

Continuity mistake: When the Terminator's chopper breaks through the gates of the reservoir, they sound as if they crash against the fence, yet a frame later, from the angle in front, the gates are open wide and still.

Continuity mistake: John enters the canal, passes by a bridge and pulls over 200 meters ahead. From his POV, the distance from the bridge is merely 50 meters. (00:35:00)

Continuity mistake: During the truck scene, when the truck has just come off the bridge, notice the sign on the right hand side says "24 hours." Seconds later the sign seems to have mysteriously disappeared.

Continuity mistake: During the pool fight scene, you can see there's an orange ball next to the upper left pocket. In following shots it's no longer next to it and it has a dark ball in front.

Factual error: While escaping Pescadero, Sarah breaks Dr. Silberman's left arm with a baton as he reaches for the phone. Moments later, when Sarah is holding Dr. Silberman "hostage" by sticking the syringe of cleaner fluid, he opens the security doors (which are extremely heavy) with the same left arm. This would be virtually impossible and downright excruciating.

Revealing mistake: In the scene where the Terminator has just broken Sarah out of the hospital and the T-1000 has been shot off the back of the cop car you can see his "metal" arms bending as he rolls across the pavement, and as he gets back to his feet you can see where his real hands are.

Continuity mistake: When Sarah Connor throws the keys to a male orderly to distract him, Dr. Silberman is standing right behind him. Two shots later, we see the doctor several feet away. The time lapse between the two shots was only one or two seconds. (00:56:25)

Continuity mistake: At the steel mill, the T-1000 points his finger at Sarah and tells her to call John. The style and position of the loose hairs around her forehead change between frames.

More quotes from Terminator 2: Judgment Day

Trivia: The insert car driver (towing the bike ridden by Eddie Furlong) was warned at the very beginning of the scene where John rides out of the mall and the T-1000 is chasing him, that Robert Patrick could run exceptionally well. The driver confidently said that Patrick wouldn't catch him. However, on the very first take, Patrick ran right up and tapped Furlong on the shoulder. So if this was real life, the human race would be in trouble.

Question: One of the taglines for this film is "It's nothing personal". I have no idea what that has to do with the film and was hoping someone could explain it.

Gavin Jackson

It's also a sly nod to another famous tagline, Jaws: The Revenge. "This time it's personal."
