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: 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.

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)

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 John and Sarah are in the pick-up truck trying to outrun the overturned liquid nitrogen tanker, the driver's door of the pick-up truck goes from swinging open, to closed, to open again between shots.

Continuity mistake: During the escape from Pescendaro, the Terminator shoots the T-1000's head and the T-1000's head splits apart. When this happens Doctor Silberman can be seen nervously in the background. The shot then cuts to the Terminator, John and Sarah and then the shot cuts back to the T-1000. However, when the shot cuts back to the T-1000, Doctor Silberman isn't there any more. (01:00:00)

Casual Person

More quotes from Terminator 2: Judgment Day

Trivia: The insert car driver (towing the bike ridden by Eddie Furlong) was warned at the very beginning of the scene where John rides out of the mall and the T-1000 is chasing him, that Robert Patrick could run exceptionally well. The driver confidently said that Patrick wouldn't catch him. However, on the very first take, Patrick ran right up and tapped Furlong on the shoulder. So if this was real life, the human race would be in trouble.
