Terminator 2: Judgment Day

Factual error: When the Terminator and John are replacing the starter on the Ford Bronco, the Terminator is removing/installing the starter bolts vertically. However, all Ford starters are held in by bolts that run horizontally.

Other mistake: When Lewis looks at the cup that he got from the coffee machine, the cup has two Jacks and two Aces. When he looks at the bottom of the cup, it has a Queen underneath giving him two pairs, but he tells Gwen the receptionist that he got a full house.

Suggested correction: There are more cards displayed on the right side of the 2 aces, we can't see them. There are probably 2 queens there.

No there aren't. There's only 4 cards on the side of the cup. That's the whole point of Wildcard Poker cups, 4 cards with one on the bottom.

Bishop73

Well actually there are 5 on the side of the cup, but indeed that still wouldn't be enough to get a full house with a queen. But still, he is allowed to be wrong.

There's only 4 cards on the side of the cup and the card at the bottom. Https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ovq9xOQNamk and go to the 00:36 mark.

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.

Continuity mistake: At Cyberdine, Gibbons' chair position differs between the shot when the second guard arrives and after he finds him laying on the floor.

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.

Terminator 2: Judgment Day mistake picture

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)

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: The T-1000 has the gun holster on his left side and takes the gun out with his left hand when the guard in the psych ward hits the alarm. A few scenes later when the T-800 (Arnie) asks Sarah to 'come with me if you want to live' the T-1000 walks through the cell doors, the holster is on the right hand side and the gun in his right hand. (01:10:00 - 01:12:00)

Suggested correction: The T-1000 can change shape at will so it is safe to say the he changed hands with the gun and switched its holster to suit. The T-1000 uses both hands throughout the film to hold and shoot his gun.

I am not sure if the holster has changed to his right-hand side at all - isn't that just his walkie-talkie, which was there all along? Very few clear shots of his belt in that sequence though. I hate speculative explanations but if it's just the gun changing hands, that doesn't sound too serious... Could just be for opening a door.

Continuity mistake: After the first fight in the steel mill, as the T-800's arm ends up in the gear the black glove on his left hand is torn in many places, revealing parts of the endo-skeleton hand. However, later when the T-800 frees himself from the gear, he is wearing a black glove with no tears on his left hand.

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

Visible crew/equipment: When The Terminator exits the bar, a bartender then points a 30-30 at him. The Terminator then takes the 30-30 off him and takes a pair of sunglasses out of his shirt pocket. A reflector screen is visible in the reflection of the glasses when he puts them on.

Casual Person

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.

Revealing mistake: After the Terminator has jumped on to the truck and shot the T-1000 full of bullets he pulls the wheel to the right so that the tanker truck skids and falls but if you look closely you can see that the stunt double for the T-101 merely fakes he's pulling the wheel, and then holds onto the cab and you can see the stuntman for the T-1000 inside the cab turning the wheel before it flicks to the wider shot. (01:48:10)

Visible crew/equipment: Juat after Sarah gets a visit from Reese, she runs down a corridor and ends up outside. If you look carefully at the bottom left as the door opens, there's a guy's arms visible, making sure the door doesn't open too far. (00:21:30)

Factual error: When Terminator shoots T1000 in the liquid nitrogen truck, the trucks tips over and is still moving which would be impossible. It would just stop dead in its tracks not continue for another 100 feet like it does in the movie.

Dr. Silberman: You broke my arm!
Sarah Connor: There's 215 bones in the human body. That's one.

Trivia: While the characters were running around a hot steel mill, in reality the temperatures in the mill averaged only about 40° Fahrenheit. The actors had to be consistently spritzed with water to make it look like they were sweating.

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."
