Terminator 2: Judgment Day

Continuity mistake: While in the police car, escaping from the T-1000, when Sarah says "John, it was stupid of you to go there", her ponytail is either brushed and neat, or messy and all over her shoulder, depending on whether the shot is from behind or the front respectively.

Continuity mistake: When the T-1000 throws the driver off the truck and chases John's bike, the buildings on the right are a brown parking lot and a modern white building. In a couple seconds, the truck keeps swapping from being by the middle of the white building or way behind, next to the brown parking lot approaching the white building. The position is inconsistent many times.

Continuity mistake: Arnie shoots the truck's tyre right before it smashes against the pillar. From the truck's point of view Arnie and the kid disappear, only to reappear one second afterwards.

Revealing mistake: In the scene when the T-800 first comes through the time machine, in the shot where he stands up. If you look towards the right side of the bowl shape that's melted into the ground, you can see that the bowl shape is actually above ground. There's a shadow being cast by it on the right side. (00:06:30)

Continuity mistake: In the Pescadero hallway, the T-1000 passes by Dr. Silberman twice, the second time while firing his pistol.

Continuity mistake: When the cop by the vending machine is killed, his head is tilted to the left in the front shot, but straight in the side angle following.

Character mistake: In the alternate ending on the DVD edition Sarah says that Michael Jackson turned 40 on the supposed day of the war. Michael Jackson's birthday is August 29 1958, so he would have been 39.

Continuity mistake: When Sarah spits out the paperclip to start her escape, the paperclip is unfolded too quickly between shots.

Knever

Continuity mistake: Dyson is shot at and falls on the floor, an instant later he is lying several meters to the right over a carpet.

Other mistake: In the scene in which the T-1000 arrives at Dyson's home, he sees the files burning in the trash can. We know this is happening as the others are in the Cyberdyne building as the police radio, just a few moments afterwards, calls all officers to the area. There is unburned paper on top of the pile. Given all of the time that they were in the Cyberdyne building, there should have been a large amount of ash in the trash can. There was no sign of strong wind to have blown the amount that should have been present. There is an incredibly small amount of ash in the can when it is shown, it just isn't possible with the elapsed time. (01:44:00)

Continuity mistake: When the Terminator smashes the driver's window of the blue station wagon, there is a large section of glass at the top of the door that is stuck in the runner of the door. In the next shot as the Terminator is closing the door, this same section of glass is now missing. Not enough time has passed in the shots for it to disappear and there's no sound of it dropping. (01:13:25)

Other mistake: When John and Terminator arrive at Pescadero, John's hair is immaculate, perfectly brushed, not realistic for someone who's just arrived on a motorbike.

Visible crew/equipment: When Sarah goes to beat up Doctor Silberman and the other doctor, when she attempts to escape Pescendaro, a boom mic is visible at the top of the screen. (00:54:00)

Casual Person

Continuity mistake: When Sarah uses her shotgun to shoot the T-1000 in the eye, the first camera angle reveals that the shot has disfigured his head forcing the tissue around the eye to be pushed outwards as a result. In the next shot, when we can see Sarah through the hole as it 'heals', we can see that the head is already in its regular shape as the hole fills.

Continuity mistake: As the liquid nitrogen tanker crashes into the SWAT truck, the semi's right headlight is destroyed, but a second later it's back in position, and no damage to the nose of the semi at all.

Movie Nut

Visible crew/equipment: As Sarah starts to slide to a stop as she sees the Terminator, you can see the shadow of the camera on her left shoulder and arm.

Movie Nut

Revealing mistake: When the T-1000 goes to kill the guard in the mental hospital, from the angle looking at the T-1000 the seam where the prosthetic matches into the guard's skin is visible.

Movie Nut

Continuity mistake: After John gets off the bike, he looks at the Terminator's back and sees the holes in the jacket. John puts his finger in one hole, but when the view changes the finger is in another hole.

Visible crew/equipment: In the shot of John riding under the bridge just seconds before the roof is ripped off the truck, the shadow of the camera is moving along the floor by John's bike. (00:35:15)
