Terminator 2: Judgment Day

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.

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.

Continuity mistake: When the T-1000 is on the police car's trunk, the hole he produces on the windshield increases and decreases in size between shots. (01:02:40)

Continuity mistake: Sarah takes the chip out of the Terminator's skull and places it by the edge of a table. In the next angle, it is several centimeters away from the edge.

Continuity mistake: In the police car after escaping from the T-1000, John's hair is moving to the left because of the wind. When the angle changes to a POV from the driver's seat, right when he says "I had to get you out of the place", his hair is moving wildly to the right, then a frame later, from a new angle, it's back to the previous mild movement to the opposite side.

Continuity mistake: When escaping out of the parking lot, John drives past the same blue pick-up truck twice.

Sacha Premium member

Continuity mistake: John Connor comes out of the parking lot and appears right in the middle of the truck's lane, making the driver swerve to his left. From a close-up, the driver turns the wheel and straightens the truck and keeps on driving, but the following wide angle shows the truck swerved and the driver straightening it again.

Revealing mistake: Sarah Conner spins up the drill to remove The Terminator's access port and Arnold flinches as the drill is close to his eyes. A 'real' machine wouldn't flinch. (01:11:40)

Other mistake: In the Director's Cut, there is a scene where they "reset the switch." The Terminator tells Sarah and John to "rotate the locking cylinders counterclockwise." But the power tool is rotating clockwise.

Visible crew/equipment: As the Terminator gets on the bike at the start, the barman comes out and fires a shotgun. Look in the bike's mirrors to see some film crew moving around. (00:09:30)

Other mistake: During the bar scene when the T-800 is on the motorcycle and the bar owner comes out and fires the gun, Arnold Schwarzenegger flinches, specifically his eyes close. (00:09:30)

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

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."
