Terminator 2: Judgment Day

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.

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)

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.

Continuity mistake: After the T-800 breaks the window in the mall, a blonde girl in a white and blue shirt is on the left but in the next shot is on the right.

Suggested correction: Entry not specific enough.

How is this not specific enough?

Bishop73

For one, there's more than one chase scene involving a truck in this movie. This entry doesn't specify which one. Nor does he specify if we see the camera crew itself or simply a reflection of the crew on the vehicle.

I think he is referring to a truck seen just before the Freightliner runs the stop sign and hits the brown and dark blue cars. The "camera" truck though looks like it has trash cans in the back, not a film crew, at least nothing that I can see in the 1080p version to indicate it is a film crew. The reverse shot of the collision if from a fixed position camera close to the cars so wasn't shot from a truck, so again no evidence this is a film crew truck.

Revealing mistake: When the T-800 is reloading his shotgun in the alley with John, he reaches into his pocket, presumably to grab shells for the shotgun. In the shot with him and John in frame, his hand comes out of his pocket empty, but we hear him load another shell into the gun in the next shot.

Continuity mistake: When the helicopter smashes into the back of the police van the front gets completely smashed in and crumples. Next shot is from the side - the helicopter falls to the ground and the front is intact, then smashes to pieces on impact.

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

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)

Audio problem: In the scene where John is running away from the T-1000 in the corridor of the mall, one of the curators shouts out "Hey!" The Terminator appears in scene so John runs back the other way passing the same curator he ran past before who then shouts out "Hey!" at him again. The curator's mouth never moves during both of his lines.

Casual Person

Continuity mistake: When Terminator shoots at the police from the Cyberdine window, from the angles in front he is in the middle of two window frames, yet from the angle shot from behind he is inches away from the left frame.

Continuity mistake: At Pescadero, after Terminator pushes a female guard away, John runs to Sarah and asks if she's okay. Her body is positioned pointing in an 8 o'clock direction first, and in the following shot in an 11 o'clock.

Sacha Premium member

Continuity mistake: At Pescadero, when the female guard breaks Terminator's glasses, from the angle behind the left lens is pointing upwards, yet from the front it's downwards and the damage is greater.

Continuity mistake: When Sarah sees the Terminator coming out of the elevator and crawls backwards panicking, there's a thick line painted on the floor. When the angle changes and shows her standing up and running, the line is gone.

T-1000: Say... That's a nice bike.

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."
