Terminator 2: Judgment Day

Visible crew/equipment: A camera and the lower half of the crew are reflected in the T-1000's sunglasses as it cruises through the fires in front of the Cyberdyne Building. (01:58:05)

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). (00:32:10 - 00:32:55)

Continuity mistake: When the T-1000 walks through the bars at the mental clinic, he gets his handgun stuck in the bars for a few seconds before removing it. In the close-up shot we can see the gun is stuck. But in the wide shot that precedes it, his gun isn't stuck at all. Actor Robert Patrick (T-1000) unconvincingly has his arm wrapped around the bar to make it look like his gun is stuck. (01:02:00)

Continuity mistake: When the Terminator pulls John off the dirt bike during the drainage ditch chase, the dirt bike falls onto its left side and the gas tank is about to be crushed by the tow truck. The next shot from another angle shows the dirt bike laying on its right side, with the rear tire the first thing to be crushed under the truck. (00:37:30)

Continuity mistake: In the desert when John says "bad example", he turns round and his hair has changed. It goes from in his eyes to neat and by the side of his face. (01:12:30)

Factual error: When the T-1000 is scanning the parking lot in the bar near the beginning of the movie, he scans the lone car parked outside and his display reads "Plymouth sedan." The vehicle he scanned was a Ford LTD Crown Victoria. (00:06:50)

Revealing mistake: Special Edition. The biggest giveaway about the false mirror in the 'chip removal' scene is that John's 'reflection' has his back to the mirror when Sarah is drilling, whereas the real John is standing side-on to it. Also notice that John nervously looks at the camera in this shot. (01:11:50)

Continuity mistake: In the hospital scene where Arnie is rescuing Sarah, he throws a black man against a glass wall. In the next shot the man is sliding down the wall and he's now white. (00:55:20)

Visible crew/equipment: The camera's reflection is visible on the elevator door when it closes as the Terminator, John and Sarah escape Cyberdyne. (01:52:30)

Casual Person

Revealing mistake: After the Terminator uses John Connor's switchblade to remove the skin on his forearm, the wires controlling the Terminator's prosthetic arm are visible underneath his shirt, at the top right of his torso. (01:37:00)

Terminator 2: Judgment Day mistake picture

Continuity mistake: The gas that the Terminator shoots at the SWAT members while inside the foyer of the Cyberdyne building, is nowhere near the front door when compared to when the Terminator exits the building. The Terminator has to walk through a gas haze as he opens the front door. (01:59:45)

Continuity mistake: Immediately after the Terminator shoots the gate guard at the mental institute, there is blood on the guard shack wall. A few seconds later, the blood has vanished. (00:57:30)

Continuity mistake: When in the desert after resetting the switch, the Terminator breaks a car window with some glass still there. Camera does an instant cut, and the broken glass has changed. (01:13:25)

Other mistake: When the Terminator blows his way into the lab, Dyson stops Sarah from going on, saying "the fire's set off the halon system," referring to the gas which starves the fire of oxygen. However, the subtitles on the DVD say "the fire's set off the halo system." (01:43:20)

Character mistake: Sarah Connor breaks her doctor's arm while informing him that "there are 215 bones in the human body. That's one." But there are 206 bones in the human body.

Continuity mistake: When the T-800 is walking down the corridor at Dyson's workplace, how far he is down the hall keeps changing depending on the shot. (01:38:40)

Visible crew/equipment: When the Terminator looks back and fires his shotgun at the truck's tire, on the far right side we can see part of an orange cable or pole with rigging attached to the back of the motorcycle. (00:37:40)


Visible crew/equipment: When the T-1000 is chasing John, the terminator, and Sarah in the cop car, the terminator backs the cop car off the ramp, making the car bounce around. At the very end of this shot, you can see crew members, light equipment, and camera dollies put off to the side.

Revealing mistake: At the guard hut, when the Terminator goes to smash through the window you can see the different colored area and the line where the glass breaks.
