Terminator 2: Judgment Day
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. (01:58:51)

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.

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. (01:02:05)

Visible crew/equipment: After the T-1000, disguised as Janelle, impales Todd, it hangs up the phone and pulls the blade out of Todd's head. As he slumps forward away from the cupboard and drops out of frame, you can see the retracting-blade rig that was attached to the right side of his head, creating the illusion that the blade was pulled through his head. Frame-by-frame helps on this one - it's visible for the last 3 frames before he disappears, just past his chin. (00:41:25)

Suggested correction: Entry not specific enough.

How is this not specific enough?

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.

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

Chosen answer: Two possibilities. 1: The Terminator is emotionless, so the killing isn't personal, but rather what it's programmed to do. 2: Sarah Connor's plan to kill Miles Dyson to stop Skynet's creation.

It's also a sly nod to another famous tagline, Jaws: The Revenge. "This time it's personal."
