Terminator 2: Judgment Day mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When the T-1000 is driving the truck, he drives off a bridge and the windshield pops off, but in the next scene the windshield is back.

Terminator 2: Judgment Day mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When the T1000 is chasing John, Sarah and the T800 out of the hospital, the license plate on the cop car changes several times: from 999273 when we first see it to 999232 when it actually stops, then to 999001 after it jumps the grass verge, then from 999013 when it starts going straight, to 999018 when the T-1000 latches onto it.

Terminator 2: Judgment Day mistake picture

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where John, Sarah, and The Terminator are in the Cyberdyne building. They have just come down in the lift into the lobby where the SWAT team are waiting and firing gas cylinders. Arnie says his "I'll Be Back" and walks out of the lift. The SWAT team issue various instructions, then say "Ok - drop him!". Now - look carefully. The second they start to fire, look at the SWAT member who is furthest to the left and standing up. If you look right by his shoulder as soon as they start firing, what looks like a crew member walks into the scene, with his hands in his pockets!

Terminator 2: Judgment Day mistake picture

Revealing mistake: When the Terminator's arm is caught in the wheel and he rips his own arm off and stands up, if you look closely (slow motion can help, but isn't essential) you can see his real arm stretched behind his back under his leather jacket.

xx:xx:xx

Terminator 2: Judgment Day mistake picture

Continuity mistake: If you watch carefully when the T-1000 has driven off the bridge in the truck, you can see the suspension and steering gear collapse and shift (severely) to the driver's right. A moment later, the alignment is perfect.

xx:xx:xx

Terminator 2: Judgment Day mistake picture

Revealing mistake: When the Terminator is trying to save John from the T-1000 in the truck, he makes the jump. If you look at his face and hair while he's airborne, you can see it's a stunt double. The Terminator stunt double is also obvious in other shots throughout the film.

xx:xx:xx

Terminator 2: Judgment Day mistake picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Sarah Connor shoots Dyson in his house, it pans back and forth from him to her. In each shot of Dyson in his living room, the magazines on the coffee table are scattered, then stacked, then scattered again. Also, if you look at the blood on his shoulder, it is very heavy in one shot and very scarce in the next.

xx:xx:xx

Terminator 2: Judgment Day mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When the T-1000 drives his bike throught the glass of the Cyberdyne Systems building to get onto the helicopter, the windshield falls off. When you see it drop to the ground, it's still attached to the bike.

xx:xx:xx

Terminator 2: Judgment Day mistake picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the T-800 and the T-1000 have their first shootout in the mall, John Connor begins to run down a series of stairs to get to his dirtbike. Every time he passes a door it reads the level he's currently on. You will see he passes level 2 twice.

xx:xx:xx

Terminator 2: Judgment Day mistake picture

Continuity mistake: During the bar scene, when the Terminator is stabbed in the chest. If you pause the movie just after the rubber knife, you can clearly see that he gets stabbed right exactly above his right nipple. Later on when he goes in the kitchen to get the biker's keys, the cut with blood dripping appears on his ribcage far below the nipple.

xx:xx:xx

Terminator 2: Judgment Day mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When the Terminator is riding the Harley chasing Young John Conner, John is down in the reservoir and the Terminator is up on the ledge, as he approaches the end of the wall, through the Terminator's point of view on the bike you see the wall end, it clearly extends to a point, on the very next scene as he makes the jump the point has all of a sudden gone from a point to a squared off edge. Obviously the jump would have been a disaster if the edge was pointed.

xx:xx:xx

Terminator 2: Judgment Day mistake picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Sarah has just shot Dyson and she is crying against the wall, John comes up to her and starts hugging her. Every time the scene changes back to the hugging, look at John's watch. The time changes every time.

xx:xx:xx

Terminator 2: Judgment Day mistake picture

Continuity mistake: Towards the end of the film, when the T-1000 controlled police helicopter bears down on the SWAT truck, Sarah tries to gun it down and the T-1000 returns fire. Look carefully at the shots of the back of the SWAT truck, and notice that the bullet marks made by the T-1000 on the closed door keep changing between shots.

xx:xx:xx

Terminator 2: Judgment Day mistake picture

Revealing mistake: When John Connor and the Terminator are at the payphone calling his step mom, the Terminator punches the phone and puts a massive dent in it and change comes out. If you look at the bottom of the phone before he punches it there is already a dent there. [Pan & Scan version ideally, although you can just see the very top of the dent for a few frames in widescreen]. [ALSO- you can see that the area where Arnie hits the phone is merely plastic, which is unpainted to match the black phone!]

xx:xx:xx

Terminator 2: Judgment Day mistake picture

Continuity mistake: After The Terminator exits the bar in the beginning and takes the gun from the bar owner while advancing towards the owner he takes his left hand off the barrel. From behind though, he's still gripping it.

xx:xx:xx

Terminator 2: Judgment Day mistake picture

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where the Terminator is stood at the broken window of the Cyberdyne building, just after he has shot the police cars with the Gatling gun, he uses a grenade launcher to fire a grenade through the side window of a police car below. Look carefully and you will see a rectangular package, presumably a small charge fitted by the special effects team, on this side window exactly where the window smashes to simulate the grenade smashing the glass a split second before exploding inside the car.

xx:xx:xx

Terminator 2: Judgment Day mistake picture

Visible crew/equipment: After the tow truck plunges into the canal and John takes off on his bike, there's a shot starting low on the truck and craning up to windshield-level. You can see a reflection in the truck's paint job, next to the grille, of a large light and a crewmember.

Terminator 2: Judgment Day mistake picture

Revealing mistake: When the Terminator is in the elevator and the T-1000 forces the door open, the Terminator shoots the T-1000 in the head. If you look closely you can see that the T-1000's head is already split down the middle.

xx:xx:xx

Terminator 2: Judgment Day mistake picture

Revealing mistake: After the T-1000 steals the truck and throws the driver out there is a big action sequence where the truck hits a lot of cars. In one scene the truck hits 2 cars which were both already stopped across the road front bumper to front bumper, blocking the road in the process, making it impossible for the truck to miss them.

xx:xx:xx

Terminator 2: Judgment Day mistake picture

Revealing mistake: After the T-1000 finishes battering the Terminator with the beam, the Terminator drops to the floor and starts dragging himself. When you see the stump of his left arm move forward then backwards, the string moving the stump is visible.

xx:xx:xx

Terminator 2: Judgment Day mistake picture

Revealing mistake: When the T-1000 is chasing John in the transport truck cab, the sparks always appear before the truck actually hits the walls.

xx:xx:xx

Terminator 2: Judgment Day mistake picture

Continuity mistake: In the shot of the T-800 lifting John off of his bike, the truck's left headlight is missing, but after that it is there.

Mark Cuss
Terminator 2: Judgment Day mistake picture

Revealing mistake: In the beginning of the film, when the biker is thrown onto the stove you can clearly see the valves where the steam is coming from - it's NOT from his hands.

xx:xx:xx

Terminator 2: Judgment Day mistake picture

Revealing mistake: Just before the T-1000 crashes the truck into the bridge and the following shot you can see briefly that it is a dummy in the drivers wheel. The most noticeable difference is the dummy has black hair compared to the T-1000's brown hair.

xx:xx:xx

Lummie
Terminator 2: Judgment Day mistake picture

Continuity mistake: During the chase scene after the T-1000 commandeers the tow truck, the shadows are inconsistent from shot to shot. Understandable, as each shot was made at different times during the day, but still noticeable.

xx:xx:xx

Terminator 2: Judgment Day mistake picture

Trivia: When the 1000 robot follows them in the helicopter, we can clearly see that he has 3 arms when he is loading his gun with 2 arms and steering with the third. OK, it might be able to generate arms at will, but worth a look...

xx:xx:xx

Terminator 2: Judgment Day mistake picture

Revealing mistake: In the bar fight scene the Terminator gets stabbed by one of the bikers - if you watch carefully you see the rubber knife bend in one shot.

xx:xx:xx

Terminator 2: Judgment Day mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When John Connor holds the Terminator's jacket up to the light in the shed in Mexico it's full of holes. You see the back of it when they leave (to chase Sarah) and there are no holes.

xx:xx:xx

Terminator 2: Judgment Day mistake picture

Continuity mistake: As the T-800 is weaving around the back of the semi-truck just before the end of the aqueduct chase, there is a panel of some sort dangling around the back along with the licence plate. From the far shots the licence plate is gone, and the panel is bolted on on. This changes about two times.

xx:xx:xx

Terminator 2: Judgment Day mistake picture

Revealing mistake: When Arnold begins to beat up and throw around the workers of the hospital, the African American worker is thrown into a window. If you look carefully you can see that the window he is thrown into is a different kind of glass than the other windows that surround it, indicating that this is not real glass. You can also see that none of the other window frames of glass on the inside of the corridor. There is just the metal frames covering the windows. In some shots later in the scene when the T-1000 is chasing them down the corridor you can see the bits of glass that were left over from before have disappeared.

xx:xx:xx

Terminator 2: Judgment Day mistake picture

Visible crew/equipment: In the escape from the hospital where the car is driving fast in reverse, the stunt driver's head is visible sticking up from inside the trunk driving the car from the back. It's too far back to be John Connor's head.

xx:xx:xx

Terminator 2: Judgment Day mistake picture

Revealing mistake: Obvious stunt double for John Connor when he takes a wide berth from the street into the aqueduct. His hair, for example, is no longer across his forehead.

xx:xx:xx

Daz
Terminator 2: Judgment Day mistake picture

Other mistake: When the aqueduct chase has finished, and the T-1000 strolls out of the fire, the semi is hardly burning in the background. Considering that the semi has just violently exploded, and the small bridge it just crashed into was nearly flattened, it seems odd that it shouldn't be burning (very tricky to see, best use zoom in).

xx:xx:xx

Terminator 2: Judgment Day mistake picture

Revealing mistake: When the two Terminators first fight in the steel mill, in close - up shots the T-1000 is played by Robert Patrick, but in medium shots it's a stunt double who looks nothing like Robert Patrick.

xx:xx:xx

Terminator 2: Judgment Day mistake picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the Terminator and John are at the pay phone John picks the gun off the floor, it's cocked when it's in his hand, but as soon as he passes it to the Terminator, it's not cocked any more.

xx:xx:xx

Terminator 2: Judgment Day mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When the T-1000 is chasing John in the black tow truck, after the truck goes off the bridge you can see that the truck has two tall exhaust pipes behind the cab. Then right after the truck hits the 2nd old car it shows a shot from behind the truck and the pipes are suddenly cut off.

xx:xx:xx

Terminator 2: Judgment Day mistake picture

Continuity mistake: During the aqueduct chase the amount of damage to the semi-trailer truck changes repeatedly. Damage to the semi's grille is severe, then is not. This happens about three times.

xx:xx:xx

Terminator 2: Judgment Day mistake picture

Visible crew/equipment: In the Cyberdyne lobby when the Terminator walks towards the SWAT team, you can see unexploded squibs (pyrotechnics) in the wall behind him to his left (before the shooting starts).

xx:xx:xx

Terminator 2: Judgment Day mistake picture

Continuity mistake: In the car chase just before the final encounter in the foundry, the T-800 slams on the SWAT van's brakes and the helicopter slams into it, crushing the choppers front. A second later it is in reasonably good shape.

xx:xx:xx

Terminator 2: Judgment Day mistake picture

Visible crew/equipment: Camera lights are reflected in the glass door in the shot behind Dyson as Sarah Connor laser-scopes him.

xx:xx:xx

Terminator 2: Judgment Day mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When the SWAT van crashes through Cyberdyne's front doors into the lobby, it comes to rest with the rear doors closed. When Sarah and John Connor enter it, it's in a different position and the rear doors are fully open.

xx:xx:xx

Terminator 2: Judgment Day mistake picture

Revealing mistake: When the T-1000 is firing out of the hole in the windshield of the chopper, a close up shot shows that there is clear tape around parts of the window keeping all the little bits of glass together.

xx:xx:xx

Terminator 2: Judgment Day mistake picture

Continuity mistake: During the chase in the beginning, Arnie shoots out the left front tire of the truck causing it to come mostly off the rim; yet when it runs into the divide and explodes, the tire is completely inflated again.

xx:xx:xx

Terminator 2: Judgment Day mistake picture

Trivia: The movie being about the start of a major worldwide war (with a heavy use of technology too), an interesting coincidence can be seen in the first truck chase sequence. Just as John and the Terminator speed under the bridge that the T-1000 crashes into, a height warning on the bridge can be read which says "CAUTION 9-11". The truck smashes right into it.

xx:xx:xx

Terminator 2: Judgment Day mistake picture

Revealing mistake: When the T-800 is being attacked by the SWAT team in the Cyberdyne building, notice that in most of the shots (i.e. when he is being shot in the face, and also when the camera is behind him) Arnie has been replaced by a dummy. When the T-800 pulls out his gun and starts shooting the SWAT team, it's now back to the real Arnie, and notice how none of their bullets are now hitting his face and body, even though shots are still being fired.

xx:xx:xx

Daz
Terminator 2: Judgment Day mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Sarah carves "No Fate" into the desk, the tip of the knife curves toward her, then you see it facing away, then when John grabs it from the desk its tip is back toward him.

xx:xx:xx

Terminator 2: Judgment Day mistake picture

Revealing mistake: In the scene where John is helping Arnie up after the T-1000 has been exploded and sent to his doom in the fiery pit of molten steel (Arnie is saying "I need a vacation"), you can see how the effects crew haphazardly put on a fake busted mechanical arm underneath Arnie's coat and how it bulges out from his shoulder. You can almost see how they just tied Arnie's arm back behind his back and put a fake arm over him.

xx:xx:xx

Terminator 2: Judgment Day mistake picture

Revealing mistake: When the T-800 and T-1000 first begin to fight in the steel mill, the T-800 puts his fist through the T-1000's head causing him to revert to liquid metal form, then as the T-1000 is throwing the T-800 from side to side you can obviously tell that the T-1000 is just an actor wearing a highly metallic mylar suit in some shots.

xx:xx:xx

Terminator 2: Judgment Day mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When the T-800, Sarah and John are escaping the mental hospital in the elevator the T-1000 stabs through the top and cuts Sarah in the back. Later when are driving away from the hospital in the police car Sarah hugs John. When the camera shows Sarah's back her shirt is torn but the wound itself is gone.

xx:xx:xx

Terminator 2: Judgment Day mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When the SWAT van flips over you can see the many bullets holes on top of the Van. However a few frames later the bullet holes change from many to just a few.

xx:xx:xx

XIII
Terminator 2: Judgment Day mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When the Terminator drives the police van into the Cyberdyne building to rescue Sarah and John, one of the van's mirrors becomes crushed in on the side. Once the van is onto the freeway the mirror is intact again.

xx:xx:xx

Terminator 2: Judgment Day mistake picture

Revealing mistake: Toward the end of the aqueduct chase, the T-800 pulls John off the bike and it is crushed by the semi. The camera jerks upward as John is pulled off, and you see that Robert Patrick has been replaced by a stunt double who looks nothing like him.

xx:xx:xx

Terminator 2: Judgment Day mistake picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the Terminator is nude in the biker bar, one biker stabs him. The Terminator then grabs the knife with his left hand and twists the biker's arm. Then the Terminator uses his right hand to hold the biker's arm down on the pool table while still holding on to the knife with his left. Immediately in the next shot, the Terminator right arm is in the air with the knife in his right hand and stabs the biker.

xx:xx:xx

Terminator 2: Judgment Day mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When the T-800 arrives between the tractor-trailers, you can see a bumper sticker (i.e. "Vehicle makes wide turns") on the back of the trailer when the sparking begins. When Arnie arrives in the bubble it "melts" out the back corner of the trailer, and the sticker is no longer there.

xx:xx:xx

Terminator 2: Judgment Day mistake picture

Revealing mistake: When the tanker truck (liquid nitrogen) is sliding along the ground the sparks can be seen not to be coming from directly under the tanker but ejecting from small canisters slightly higher up the vehicle.

xx:xx:xx

Terminator 2: Judgment Day mistake picture

Continuity mistake: At the Galleria, the T-1000 fires rounds into the Terminator's back, but the damage to his jacket disappears when he is thrown through the window. (Director James Cameron said the scripting of this sequence at the time of filming was different).

xx:xx:xx

Terminator 2: Judgment Day mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When the T-1000 walks through the bars at the mental clinic, he gets his handgun stuck in the bars for a few seconds before removing it. In the close-up shot we can see the gun is stuck. But in the wide shot that precedes it, his gun isn't stuck at all. Actor Robert Patrick (T-1000) unconvincingly has his arm wrapped around the bar to make it look like his gun is stuck.

xx:xx:xx

Gavin Jackson
Terminator 2: Judgment Day mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When the Terminator pulls John off the dirt bike during the drainage ditch chase, the dirt bike falls onto its left side and the gas tank is about to be crushed by the tow truck. The next shot from another angle shows the dirt bike laying on its right side, with the rear tire the first thing to be crushed under the truck.

xx:xx:xx

Terminator 2: Judgment Day mistake picture

Revealing mistake: Special Edition. The biggest giveaway about the false mirror in the 'chip removal' scene is that John's 'reflection' has his back to the mirror when Sarah is drilling, whereas the real John is standing side-on to it. Also notice that John nervously looks at the camera in this shot.

xx:xx:xx

Daz
Terminator 2: Judgment Day mistake picture

Continuity mistake: In the hospital scene where Arnie is rescuing Sarah, he throws a black man against a glass wall. In the next shot the man is sliding down the wall and he's now white.

xx:xx:xx

Brian Watts
Terminator 2: Judgment Day mistake picture

Continuity mistake: The gas that the Terminator shoots at the SWAT members while inside the foyer of the Cyberdyne building, is nowhere near the front door when compared to when the Terminator exits the building. The Terminator has to walk through a gas haze as he opens the front door.

xx:xx:xx

Terminator 2: Judgment Day mistake picture

Continuity mistake: Immediately after the Terminator shoots the gate guard at the mental institute, there is blood on the guard shack wall. A few seconds later, the blood has vanished.

xx:xx:xx

Terminator 2: Judgment Day mistake picture

Revealing mistake: After the Terminator uses John Connor's switchblade to remove the skin on his forearm, the wires controlling the Terminator's prosthetic arm are visible underneath his shirt, at the top right of his torso.

xx:xx:xx

Terminator 2: Judgment Day mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When the T-1000 is shot down next to the video games arcade, his face expression changes between frames.

xx:xx:xx

Sacha
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.

xx:xx:xx

Terminator 2: Judgment Day mistake picture

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.

GalahadFairlight
Terminator 2: Judgment Day mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Sarah Connor throws the keys to a male orderly to distract him, Dr. Silberman is standing right behind him. Two shots later, we see the doctor several feet away. The time lapse between the two shots was only one or two seconds.

xx:xx:xx

Terminator 2: Judgment Day mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When John stops his bike at the canal, a supermarket trolley and a flat tire appear behind him.
