Terminator 2: Judgment Day

Continuity mistake: During the escape from Pescendaro, the Terminator shoots the T-1000's head and the T-1000's head splits apart. When this happens Doctor Silberman can be seen nervously in the background. The shot then cuts to the Terminator, John and Sarah and then the shot cuts back to the T-1000. However, when the shot cuts back to the T-1000, Doctor Silberman isn't there any more. (01:00:00)

Revealing mistake: When the cop by the vending machine is about to be killed by the T-1000, the back shot of him reveals he's been replaced by an obvious mannequin. His perfectly trimmed hair along the nape is now long and messy, and a long stitch appears along his sideburn and down to the neck.

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.

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."
