Terminator 2: Judgment Day

Continuity mistake: When the SWAT van flips over you can see the many bullets holes on top of the Van. However a few frames later the bullet holes change from many to just a few.

Continuity mistake: About halfway through the aqueduct chase, the T-800 shoots the semi in its left door. The hole stays there until a little before the end of the chase.

Continuity mistake: When the Terminator drives the police van into the Cyberdyne building to rescue Sarah and John, one of the van's mirrors becomes crushed in on the side. Once the van is onto the freeway the mirror is intact again.

Continuity mistake: At the mall, after the Terminator has been thrown through a glass window shop, a man in grey pants approaches him from behind. When he stands up the guy has disappeared.

Revealing mistake: When Sarah, John and the Terminator drive through the fence to escape the mental hospital, it's (quite) obvious that the T-1000 attached to the back of the car is nothing more than a dummy.

01:05:10

Revealing mistake: Early on in the film, the T-800 sees John riding down the aqueduct. He stops, and a blue car skids and is hit by another on its right side near the rear wheel. As the T-800 sets off in pursuit of the T-1000 and John, a blue car skids and is hit on its left side. Guess what? Its the same car as earlier. You can tell by the massive dent above the rear wheel.

00:29:20 - 00:34:40

Continuity mistake: In the shot where T-800 arrives in the time bubble, the bubble removes a clean cut chunk of the rear end of the truck. If you look at the very center of the wheel that is cut in half, there is part of the axle right at the tip of that wheel which is not cut.

00:06:25

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the T-1000 disguised as John's foster mother, stabs Todd (foster father) through the mouth, she is standing at the table facing it. When it transforms back into its default form, it has moved away from the table completely. This is so that it can walk forwards (out of the shot) without having to walk around the table.

00:41:55

Visible crew/equipment: When the Terminator is catapulted into the factory by the tanker truck, wires are visible holding him up (Slow-mo or pause might help.).

01:52:50

Other mistake: Just after the top of the truck's been sheared off, the T-1000 sticks his head back up and pushes the shattered windscreen out. He then steers quite severely right, then left, but given how narrow the area is he's driving down, that would have slammed him into both walls.

Continuity mistake: The computer that the T-1000 reads in the police car (at the beginning) reads that John is 10 years old and was born in February of 1985. Which means that the movie would have to take place in 1995 (2 years before Judgment Day). Yet Arnold claims in the car, (while driving towards Mexico) that Judgment Day would happen in 3 years, just after the Skynet funding bill is passed by congress.

Revealing mistake: Toward the end of the aqueduct chase, the T-800 pulls John off the bike and it is crushed by the semi. The camera jerks upward as John is pulled off, and you see that Robert Patrick has been replaced by a stunt double who looks nothing like him.

00:37:35

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the Terminator is nude in the biker bar, one biker stabs him. The Terminator then grabs the knife with his left hand and twists the biker's arm. Then the Terminator uses his right hand to hold the biker's arm down on the pool table while still holding on to the knife with his left. Immediately in the next shot, the Terminator right arm is in the air with the knife in his right hand and stabs the biker.

Continuity mistake: When the T-800 arrives between the tractor-trailers, you can see a bumper sticker (i.e. "Vehicle makes wide turns") on the back of the trailer when the sparking begins. When Arnie arrives in the bubble it "melts" out the back corner of the trailer, and the sticker is no longer there.

00:05:50

Revealing mistake: When the tanker truck (liquid nitrogen) is sliding along the ground the sparks can be seen not to be coming from directly under the tanker but ejecting from small canisters slightly higher up the vehicle.

02:02:55

Continuity mistake: When Sarah Connor hits the guy with the broom handle in a bid to escape, after the first hit, we see a close-up shot of him on the ground clutching his face. In the background we see her swing back and start bringing it down again. We then cut to a wider shot, and she repeats the motion.

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Sarah opens the skin and endo skull of the Terminator, you have a shot where you see the reflection of the Terminator, Sarah and John in the mirror. When the camera takes a shot from the back of the Terminator, you see the back of a puppet on which the real Sarah is performing the operation. In the reflection you see no camera, the real Terminator, and doubles of Sarah and John. Especially the moment Sarah puts down the screw driver, the reflecting screw driver is put down a fraction later than Sarah's.

01:07:09

Factual error: When the Terminator is running from the T-1000 and the T-1000 shoots into the Terminator's back he shoots 26 bullets. That's impossible, the gun he is using is a Beretta 9 mm - even if double stacked it is impossible.

00:59:30

Continuity mistake: When the T-800 and Connors are leaving the hospital in the car driving backwards, the car jumps off a grassy embankment and lands hard on the asphalt, knocking the rear bumper loose to a hanging position. A few shots later the bumper is back on snug again.

01:04:50

Continuity mistake: At the Galleria, the T-1000 fires rounds into the Terminator's back, but the damage to his jacket disappears when he is thrown through the window. (Director James Cameron said the scripting of this sequence at the time of filming was different).
