Corrected entry: The TX cuts through the particle accelerator with its inbuilt saw, but the machine was on. This was trapping it and the liquid metal, making it unable to move. Somehow it is able to activate the saw without that too being caught by the magnetic field. Not to mention it was able to hold the entire saw completely steady while activating it.Lummie
Corrected entry: As the Terminator cuts open his skin to get the damaged fuel cell out, the initial incision spot changes a couple of times, as does the position of where he's cutting. One moment, it's mid-upper sternum, the next, mid-right pectoral, much too fast between cuts, even though he is a cyborg. He has to take care not to damage vital operating systems.
Corrected entry: Why did the T-850 hesitate to shoot the T-X with the grenade launcher before the T-X fatally shoots Brewster? There's no reason why he would hesitate after he shoots her with the automatic weapon since the T-X had already fallen, only to get back up slowly ready to attack again, especially when he already knows that Brewster is one of her targets. This could have been explained if he had been distracted, but he was not.sidearmsalpha
Corrected entry: When John breaks into the animal clinic, he gets shot with his own "paintball gun. A real paintball gun is easily 4 or 5 times the size of a real handgun, and could never be disguised as the 9mm model shown. A real paintball gun requires a large co2 cartridge, and the paintballs fired are around the size of a quarter, much larger than 9mm. Even though some paintball cartridges are made that can be fired from conventional firearms for training purposes, the guns still need extensive and noticeable modifications, which his gun doesn't have.
Corrected entry: Skynet exists. It is a Belgian Internet provider, a spin-off of the former national phone company.
Corrected entry: In the government facility, the backfire from the flying terminator's boosters would have at least singed JC's & KB's hair while flying over them.
Corrected entry: This is one shot that is in all 3 movies. When Arnold gets on a motorcycle there is a shot of his foot. As the shot continues you see the camera pan up as Arnold turns around on the bike.
Corrected entry: At the pet clinic, John escapes the cage and runs out in the hall, only to find a terminator. John asks the terminator if it is there to kill him. It seems like a waste of breath as no evil terminator gives a second thought about killing. Had the machine been a bad terminator, can't it be assumed he would have fired the shotgun at him sometime during that walk toward him?
Corrected entry: At the cemetery the T-850 throws the casket through the back window of the hearse - obviously breaking the glass. A few moments later, Connor opens the casket and talks with the T-850 (now in the driver's seat). The back window, behind Connor's head, is now intact.
Corrected entry: In the first movie, Dr. Silberman asks Kyle Reese why Skynet didn't just kill John Connor in the future instead of the elaborate time travel scheme with the Terminator. Reese answers, "We'd won. Taking out Connor then would make no difference." So why did Skynet send the Terminator to kill Connor in 2032?
Corrected entry: When the huge magnet is functional, John's gun and the TX are drawn to it, and John and Kate run away. However, it's almost impossible there wasn't a single ferromagnetic thing on John and Kate. How come their belt clips, or the guns in John's bag, or the chargers in John's back pocket weren't drawn to the magnet?
Corrected entry: When Catherine's father walks through the corridor of the military base, on his way to the first test of the flying Hunter Killers, he is accompanied by a female civilian employee who is wearing a yellow blouse. The top two buttons of her blouse are undone and you can see a fair bit of cleavage. Though not subject to anything like military standards, civilian employees on US military bases are required to dress "modestly and with decorum". She might get away with one button undone, but two? No chance at all.
Corrected entry: When Skynet comes online, the Skynet techie refers to the system speed in teraflop/s, or Tera (Trillion) Floating point Operations per Second, or basically how many operations with decimals it's executing per second. Knowing how many teraflop/s the system is running at would be virtually useless, as the AI portion of Skynet, which must by definition be the most computer intensive portion, would execute with integer numbers and logical branching. That is not measured by flop/s, but rather by MIPS, Millions of Instructions Per Second.
Corrected entry: When the TX (disguised as Kate's boyfriend) punches it's arm through the police officer, it grabs the wheel and takes control of the vehicle. When the vehicle arrives, you see the TX get out of the rear of the vehicle, meaning she was in the back seat driving the whole time. In the back seat, the TX may have been able to control the stearing wheel and maybe the gearstick, but she would not have been able to control the accelerator, brake or clutch, making driving the car virtually impossible, not to mention stopping it.
Corrected entry: If the computer and TV are down, how come the store clerk at the gas station uses the phone?
Corrected entry: When Kate's dad is dying,he says they have to take a bearing of 0.5 degrees to get to crystal peak. When Kate and John are in the plane, she says they are on a heading of 015 degrees
Corrected entry: In the sceen where the T-101 pulls out his damaged hydrogen fuel cell, he throws it out the window, watch closely and put it on slow motion, when it almost hits the ground you can see a black shadow of a person in the backround.
Corrected entry: In the cemetery scene just after the Terminator uses a bazooka to fire a missile at the TX, Katherine Brewster is standing a few yards from the door of the hearse in a state of shock. John Connor opens the door of the car and shouts "Get in." The immediate shot shows her standing next to the door, instead of a few yards away.
Corrected entry: When John and Kate find out that they have ended up in a nuclear shelter the timer of the C4 does not beep all the time, it starts beeping again when John has to notice them to not blow himself up accidentally.
Corrected entry: After the crane crashes, the T-X has a clear shot at John's truck. The roads are empty, he was a short distance away, and continued to travel in a straight line. The T-X could have easily fired her weapon at him. It's not really a character mistake, because the T-X's sole goal is to kill him, and she goes through a lot of trouble to try and do so throughout the film, so why let up here? It just seems too inconsistent and 'convenient' to the plot.
Corrected entry: In the Controlled vehicle Chase scene what happened to one of the police cars? I have watched the scene over and over again and I think they just forgot about it. The fire van got blown up. The ambulance got kicked over. And the other police car got rammed. The second police car though was driving around in formation at the beginning of the scene but when Connor pulls away into a suburban area it disappears completely. It in fact reappears for a couple of seconds in one shot just before Arnie hits the Fire engine. And then when it flicks to the TX's point of view there is no police car in sight.
Corrected entry: When John falls off his motorcycle; he pulls off his helmet without undoing the buckle, but if it had never been done-up in the first place it would have come off in the crash.
Corrected entry: At the start of the film, the T-X kills Jose Barrera. Later, the T-850 knows his name and that the T-X killed him; he shouldn't do, because the whole point of the Terminators going back in time to kill people is that those people would never then be able to oppose Skynet in the future. So Jose, having been killed in the past, would never have fought against Skynet and the T-850 would never have heard of him. There is no consistent interpretation of time travel in which the T-850 can have heard of Jose, while not making it pointless for Skynet to kill people in the past.Moose
Corrected entry: When the T-X jumps into the crane, we get to see a shot through her POV, and operating instructions (or something similar) appear on the screen. This is an obvious reference to T1, when the Terminator climbs into the cab of the 18 wheeler as operating instructions appear when looking from the T-800's POV.
Corrected entry: When John says he lives "off the grid," he drops his Budweiser bottle off the bridge and it drops into the water sideways, but in the next shot it lands straight down. I have experimented with this myself and a falling bottle with liquid in it will not right itself as it falls.
Corrected entry: Considering Arnold reset himself, how could he have then known where John and Katherine were?
Corrected entry: In the vet clinic, Katherine says the time is 5 a.m. In the chase scene that follows, the shadows of the cars and buildings are way too small to be dawn. The scene was filmed around noon.
Corrected entry: The events in this film seem to overlook James Cameron's final Terminator project. Universal Studio's short film "T2-3D" has the same cast and crew as T2: Judgement Day. In it, Cyberdyne Systems develops Skynet, John Connor (Furlong version), together with Arnie, travel to the future, identify the Skynet building", and ultimately destroy it.Dameon
Corrected entry: At the beginning, the T-X is naked, and so she puts on real clothing. However, whenever she changes shape, the clothes also morph as though they were part of her, which they aren't.
Corrected entry: In the military base, the T-850 repeatedly hits the T-X with an Penn Arms L6 37mm grenade launcher. Yet the grenades never explode, they just force the T-X backwards.
Corrected entry: At the scene that the T-X takes up the look of Catherine and goes to her father, the Terminator shoots the T-X 'Catherine' with his machine gun. In this scene, the T-X is affected by the bullets as if it was human to make it look like it is really Catherine being shot, however at the end of the movie when the T-X is shot, metal holes appear on the T-X who is seemingly not affected by the bullets anymore.
Corrected entry: When the TX pulls up to the drive-thru to shoot the guy, she comes in the wrong way because the drive-thru window is on the wrong side (the right). Any drive-thru window should ALWAYS be on the driver's left. It can't be she backed out and came in the other way, because she pulled right through after asking for him on the speaker which was to HER left.
Corrected entry: John Connor, the damaged Terminator and Kate suddenly appear from the elevator inside her father's black/top secret lab right as the TX attacks. They have no ID badges on, which would have drawn challenges in a secure/classified government facility. There is no indication in the lab that a security breach has occurred when they appear, and no MPs chasing them. So John, Kate and the Terminator did not shoot their way into the lab, either. There is no way security/MPs would have allowed John and the Terminator in the facility in the first place, let alone Kate without notifying her father first.
Corrected entry: In a scene in a gas station in the middle of nowhere, a guy is switching channels on a tv, which shows only test screens. If the TV-net has been destroyed and no channel can transmit their programs, who is sending out the test screens for ALL channels?
Corrected entry: Right at the beginning of the crane and fire truck chase scene after Arnold is knocked off the crane by the fire truck, the camera shows the fire truck speeding away. At the the end of that shot you see the fire truck starting to make a u-turn. Then the camera jumps to Arnold hanging on the front of the fire truck. He then breaks the wind shield and grabs the steering wheel in order to make the u-turn. How did the fire truck start the u-turn before Arnold even grabbed the the steering wheel?
Corrected entry: In last scene of the movie we are shown what is supposed to be Earth in the middle of a nuclear war. If you pause the movie the last second you can count to about 15-25 detonations on a area that is about 1/10 of the entire Earth's surface. This makes no sense: in a real nuclear war (such a war that Skynet triggers by launching against Russia) more than 30.000 weapons would be launched within the hour and no area of the world, not even the mid-Atlantic, would sustain only about 20 hits.
Corrected entry: Skynet supposedly survives Judgment Day because it spread itself to computers all over the world. In a full nuclear exchange between USA and Russia, at least 20,000 warheads (on the Megaton scale) would detonate at various locations throughout the world within the hour, and the 20,000 EMPs generated would without doubt destroy almost every above-ground computer in the entire world. EMPs have larger blast radii than the nuclear explosion itself; ten could wipe out the entire electrical grid of the US. Only a few military computers at the bottom of deep bunkers would survive, but Skynet didn't rely on any "supercomputers", right?.
Corrected entry: The facility where Brewster works is said to be an autonomous weapon systems research lab. In that case the particle accelerator makes no sense. It is used for basic physics research but has nothing to do with mechanics, AI and all that stuff that is researched on in Brewster's labs. Obviously it is only needed to save Johns and Catherine's lives.
Corrected entry: In the scene at the cemetery, Sarah Connor's coffin stated that she was born in 1959. However, in the special features in the DVD, it states that Sarah Connor was born in 1964.
Corrected entry: Having stolen the Lexus, TX makes a call on a Nokia 9210. She has the display and keypad to her face (as with most phones). The Nokia 9*10 series has the speaker and mike on the back of the phone. It is virtually impossible to hear/speak with the face/keys against the head.
Corrected entry: In the Vet hospital, Kate Brewster locks John Connor in a cage and then talks to him until she hears a noise. When she leaves the room to check it out, you hear three gunshots as the TX shoots the customer. But when the TX bends down to examine her blood, there are only two bullet holes in the customer's chest.
Corrected entry: The timeline for the three Terminator movies is completely messed up. Let's start from the beginning- Kyle Reese and The Terminator show up at about 1:52 AM, Thursday, May 12th, 1984. Approximately 2 days later, Sarah Connor becomes impregnated with John Connor. Assuming he has a normal birth, that would make his birthday on or around February 14th, 1985. Fast forward to Terminator 2. He's ten, according to the police file. This movie was released in 1993. That would make him 8 years old. But lets assume that the movie didn't take place in 1993, and that it was in 1995, making him 10 years old. Sarah Connor is described as being 29 in the second movie. If John really is 10, then she was only 18 when she met Reese, and she should still be in school- why does she have a roommate? Moving to Terminator 3, the voice-over tells us he was 13 when John first encountered the Terminator (this would make Sarah 15 or 16 in the first movie). If this movie takes place in 2003 when it was released, he would be 18. Katherine is supposed to be 20-something, and she was in the same grade as him in junior high school? Also, even if John was ten in the second movie like he was supposed to be, that would only put him in the fourth or fifth grade- definitely not old enough to be making out in anybody's basement (although it's possible if he was thirteen). Sarah Connor also had leukemia for three years, and she had to "hold on" to make sure that she really had prevented Judgement Day on August 29th, 1997. Using the phrase "hold on" implies that she got leukemia three years before that date, which would be in 1995, when John should have turned ten. He was ten in the second movie and she was extremely healthy then. But in that case the second movie should have been earlier, in 1993, and John would have been 8, as previously stated. Unless, of course, the third movie took place in some time after 2003, but that messes everything up all over again.
Corrected entry: When the T-101 throws its malfunctioning fuel cell out of the car window, it explodes and forms a mushroom cloud. This isn't possible; a mushroom cloud isn't a characteristic of a nuclear explosion, - all explosions, chemical, nuclear or thermonuclear, are hot enough to form mushroom clouds. It is the reaction mass (rather than the explosive mass) that counts. As the explosion forms it superheats and vaporises a mass of material - soil, air, people, whatever, and this hot column of reaction debris rises. If - and only if - the explosion is big enough, the reaction plume will strike colder, denser air at altitude and will be forced out and down, forming the familiar mushroom cloud. With an explosion of this size, they'd never have been able to outrun it.
Corrected entry: When the T-X rips off the door of the Toyota Tundra, the vehicle is completely static. The force of the door being ripped off would cause the suspension of the vehicle to rock.
Corrected entry: In the Skynet command center, one of the staff says that Skynet is operating at "60 teraflops per second." A teraflop is a trillion operations per second - the figure should be simply "60 teraflops." Surely a Skynet techie should know the meaning...
Corrected entry: Each Terminator weighs about a ton, so there are several things that wouldn't make much sense: First, a terminator wouldn't be able to drive a car, because it would break down immediately. Second, a terminator wouldn't be able to fly a helicopter or a plane. Third, a terminator couldn't sit down on a chair, and so on and so forth. All those things, however, happen in the movie and it never seems to be a problem.
Corrected entry: The T-X has an inner frame surrounded by liquid metal. How could it copy Scott who is noticeably shorter than Kritanna Lokken? This is addressed as a special effect issue in the special features. It doesn't explain how it fits with the plot.
Corrected entry: It seems a bit strange that the T-850 arrives from the future with no battle damage. Later in the film we learn that that terminator hunted down and killed John Connor in the future, and then was captured and reprogrammed by Claire Danes. If Connor was the leader of the human resistance then he would be heavily guarded and the terminator would have sustained at least some minor damage trying to find/kill him and i doubt that tech-com would own a flesh regenerator to fix him all up before sending him to the past.
Corrected entry: The hearse glove box lock is missing on one interior shot, but is there again in another shot.
Corrected entry: In the scene where John crashes into the guy's car, the guy steps out and rubs his neck. A few moments later the door to the car closes by itself as if being pulled by a wire.
Corrected entry: When John and Kate enter the particle accelerator while they are being chased by the T-X, you can see that John is in front and Kate is behind him. But later when the magnetic field accelerator is activated, Kate is now in front with John behind her.
Corrected entry: Just to be sure. Arnold got $150 SAMA Beta Titanium sunglasses at an "AM PM" convenience store rotating display, and found a $10,000 Audemars Piguet watch in a pickup truck?
Corrected entry: Throughout the entire movie whenever Arnie gets hit or involved in some fight with the TX, his hair and clothes are messed up. However, the TX's hair and wardrobe are always spotless-not even an out of place hair.
Corrected entry: When the Cat lady is shot by the TX, she hits the floor, and can be seen just past the corner of the hallway. When the shot angle changes, she is a few feet back and her position changed.
Corrected entry: When Arnold Schwartzenegger steals the RV, notice the ammunition on the picnic table. When he places the green grenade rounds on the table, the bottom (where the firing pin would hit on a normal cartridge) is facing towards us. When he puts the rest of the ammo on the table, you can see the copper heads of the rounds.
Corrected entry: When the T-850 leaves the gas station, he looks back to see the attendant on the phone, surely he would have disconnected the phone, knowing that the police are looking for them and that would the first person the guy called, allowing the T-X to follow them with the police.
Corrected entry: If the T-X has Kate's files from middle school, retrieved from current sources, surely she would have a date of birth in there too? And if so, she would know that Kate was in her early 20s and the first woman she killed in the vet's office couldn't possibly be Kate, so she shouldn't have needed to test her DNA.Shay
Corrected entry: During the scene where Kate's father is questioning what is happening with Skynet, the Terminatrix comes out looking like Kate without ever having touched her.
Corrected entry: When John asks Terminator whether "Hasta la vista, baby" rings a bell, Terminator tells him that was a different "T-101." This nomenclature is incorrect: Terminator is a Cyberdyne Systems Series 800 Model 101, also referred to as a T-800 (in this film he's a T-850). "T-101" is a bastardized combination of model and series numbers, and is inconsistent with what appears in both other films. 800 and 101 are both numbers that refer to the "Arnold" terminator (model and series, respectively). But the "T" prefix is supposed to be followed by the model number (800), not the series (101). It's like referring to a Ford F-150 STX as an "F-STX." Even if what is meant can be inferred, it is a technical error, the kind the terminator would never make (especially in referring to itself).rbryant73
Corrected entry: In the scene where the TX kills the 2 policemen in the car, she smashes the second man's head against the windscreen, cracking it and spraying it with blood. She then grabs the wheel and turns the car around. The following aerial shot of the car doing a 180 degree turn shows the windscreen undamaged and clean. In the following shot the glass is bloody and cracked again.
Corrected entry: The T-1000 from T2 seemed to be a much more efficient and versatile killing machine, as he was pure liquid metal. Seems to be backward technology that the T-X would have a skeleton like the T-800/850 that can be damaged and ultimately destroyed. The T-1000 only was terminated by meltdown (which the T-X would have been also), but the 1000 surely would have fared better in some of the crunches that severely damaged the T-X.
Corrected entry: The story is that SkyNet launches missiles against enemies of the US so that they would in return launch missiles against the US. But this is set in the present day, and computers have never been given control of launching nuclear missiles. Computers have only been given control of the warning systems, with no ability to control launches directly, virus/AI or not.Sol Parker
Corrected entry: When they are switching from the hearse to the camper, John walks up to Catherine who is sitting in the passenger seat of the hearse and talks to her with the passenger window not there. When he walks over to talk to Arnold who is at the camper, we see the hearse in the background with the passenger side tinted window up and no sign of Catherine in the car. John then walks back to the hearse and Catherine is sitting back in the passenger seat and the window is broken again.MCKD
Corrected entry: Near the end of the movie, when Arnold is going to destroy TX with his fuel cell, how come earlier when he flies the chopper into her she doesn't repair herself and then kill Arnold?
Corrected entry: When TX goes after the fast food kid relatively early on, we see from across the street that she guns him down. We hear the bullets being fired from across the street. Then why can we see two people in the kitchen area sitting down about ten metres away from where the body fell, looking perfectly relaxed and trouble free, even when the screaming starts?
Corrected entry: The T-1000 could not only take on another's appearance, but their mannerisms (such as talking like them on the phone). Then why is it that the advanced T-X can't (such as when the false Scott talks to the police)?
Corrected entry: In the scene at the cemetery, after the T-850 shoots the police, one of the messages he sees, apart from "human casualties" and "rounds fired" is one telling him he destroyed 17 vehicles . Never mind that we only see one car blowing up, but even if he sees "destroying" as simply shooting tens of holes into a car, there simply aren't that many cars in the area where he is shooting .
Corrected entry: The T-X (and the T-1000 in T2) does not act like an efficient killing machine. It can run as fast as a car, withstand enormous amounts of damage and has machine-like reflexes, tons of weapons and technology. Yet, when it catches sight of its target, what does it do? It plays with its prey, moves very slowly towards its victims, blows an otherwise very convincing disguise, etc. Even the most inexperienced human assassin with a lousy Glock would simply raise his gun and shoot on sight. If all of Skynet's agents are so inept, Skynet doesn't stand a chance against the humans in the future war.
Corrected entry: Why does the TX have to sample the cat lady's DNA to test whether she's Kate Brewster? Surely she would have acquired a photo of Kate from that site she visits with the cellphone - after all, unlike John, Kate had no idea the Terminators were coming, so she wouldn't have erased any records of herself.
Corrected entry: If you remember the reason why O'Connor was misdirected to the last scene facility was that there wasn't a master server where the Skynet was installed so this means that Skynet was the virus that spread to all computers in Earth. When Skynet fired the ICBM's (Nuclear Missiles) at the major cities on the planet it actually committed suicide. If Skynet destroys the cities, it destroys the computers the had the virus and consequently itself.
Corrected entry: In the scene after Arnie has obtained his new leathers he goes straight to a jeep he intends to steal. The first thing he does in the jeep is pull the sun visor down to check for keys even though in Terminator 2 John Connor had to teach him to do this instead of just breaking open the steering column and hot-wiring the car. This appears strange because later in the film Arnie states that all Terminators are basically pulled off a production line and that he cannot remember anything that a previous terminator can remember. So how did Arnie remember to look under the sun visor to start with?
Corrected entry: Throughout the beginning of the movie, when the Terminator has 'kidnapped' Catherine, she repeadly screams orders at him to let her go. Later in the movie, it is suddenly revealed that he will take orders from her. He should, therefore, have released her earlier, as soon as she demanded it.
Corrected entry: In the scene where the T-X is driving and being pulled over by a police officer who spots her speeding, she gives herself larger breasts. If she's as powerful as they say she is and practically manages to kill anyone and everything on the spot, why would she need larger breasts to get rid of a single police officer?
Corrected entry: When the T-X goes to the drive-thru to kill one of her targets, her scan shows his name as "Jose Barerra", whereas his surname is spelled "Barrera" on his name tag.
Corrected entry: Although the T-850 cannot self-terminate, deliberately causing the detonation to destroy the T-X would also terminate the T-850. Is this not classed as self-termination?
Corrected entry: How could the huge crane with a max speed of maybe 35mph/70km/h keep up with the Toyota which also had a headstart?
Corrected entry: When Arnold is driving them through the desert he opens himself up and says that he is powered with 2 cells. He threw one of them through the window of the car because it was "unstable". When they arrive at the Crystal Peak and he is fighting with the T-X trying to hold the doors up, he takes the other cell and stuffs it in her mouth. But what is powering him up after he took them all out?
Corrected entry: In the military bunker, the TX morphs into Catherine Brewster, yet the T-850 states in an earlier scene that the TX has to have touched whatever it turns into. The TX doesn't touch Brewster before morphing into her; and if she had she would have killed her.
Corrected entry: When Arnold is carrying the casket out to the hearse, he takes on heavy fire, yet later on there is not one bullet hole in his leather jacket.
Corrected entry: When John and Catherine are in the bunker, John remarks that the computers are over 30 years old. However, there are a number of brand new Dell cardboard boxes with older equipment sitting on top of them. There are no new computers anywhere in the complex.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Catherine is in the back of her van she calls 911 for help. They show her looking at the scene of the phone with no signal bars, yet she starts to talk to someone.
Corrected entry: In the scene where the TX is being overpowered by the magnetic field, why isn't Catherine's large metal watch similarly affected?
Corrected entry: In the scene where both terminators are fighting each other in the bathroom in the underground military facility, there is water spraying from the damage but neither of them get wet.
Corrected entry: At the gas station where Arnold picks up the chips and snacks, John and Catherine get in the back of the truck. The crowbar used to lock the back door is not put back into place. The next scene shows the truck driving down the road with the crowbar visible in the back door. Yet later when they reach their destination and the back door is opened, the crowbar has vanished.
Corrected entry: In the scene where the cops and fire fighters arrive at the Animal Hospital, no one bothers to question the only other civilian at the crime scene, the T-X.
Corrected entry: When they leave the vets office and crash into a car, the rear end of the car is totaled. When they drive off, the Tundra's front end is perfectly fine.
Corrected entry: The cops and firefighters find the T-850 in the middle of a major crime scene, and don't think twice that he happens to be holding a large gun? In fact, Arnold not only gets up, but walks around with the gun, and not one cop thinks to ask what he is doing there, and no one tells him to drop the gun. One cop on a motorcycle is so oblivious he speeds on by, only to be knocked off by the T-850.
Corrected entry: In the cemetary scene, The Terminator counted every single round fired from the chain gun. In a later scene in military compound where Catherine's father is located, The Terminator uses a rifle. When confronted with the T-X, he fires with an empty clip. He should've known he was already out.
Corrected entry: Skynet becomes pervasive by behaving like a computer virus. It infects other computers via the internet and takes control over them. Skynet uses this power to initiate an attack against mankind. However, since most power plants, network administration nodes, and personal computers reside in the cities, Skynet would be destroying both itself and the manner in which it operates when the cities are destroyed.
Corrected entry: Why did the T-X even bother to get herself a uniform when she could have easily killed someone and shape shift into them?
Corrected entry: How do John, Catherine, and the Terminator gain access to the military compound where Catherine's father is located? We can assume that the T-X gained access using her ability to disguise herself, but our heroes just waltz in to try and stop her. Surely there would have been tight security to prevent unauthorized personnel from easily gaining access to the facility, not to mention the command center.
Corrected entry: When trying to escape, Kate is thrown several feet from her car by the T-X. Surprisingly after such force, her cell phone still manages to survive the impact (which she later uses to call for help).
Corrected entry: Before we get to learn that Catherine is the T-850's master, he never obeys any of her commands and answers all of John's questions, but only after T-850 explains that Catherine is his master, he starts to behave like her lapdog and refuses to answer any of John's questions. Why the sudden change of behaviour?
Corrected entry: When Arnold shot the rocket propelled grenade at the T-X from the front seat of the hearse, Kate was standing a few yards behind the RPG launcher in what is called the "back-blast area". She should have sustained major burn and blast injuries when the weapon was fired.
Corrected entry: If the war against the machines occurs all around the world, then why is everybody celebrating the victory against the machines around a US flag? Were all the survivors from the United States? Didn't the world unite to fight the machines?
Corrected entry: As the machines become "aware," dozens of unmanned tanks and hovercraft swamp the whole military facility, killing everything that moves. Then how on earth do John and Catherine manage to fly their single-engined prop plane out of there without getting shot down?
Corrected entry: It has been mentioned that it is ludicrous that the TX could control vehicles remotely. But as the movie established she could do this, no matter how implausible, why didn't she make better use of this talent? During the big highway chase sequence, for example, why didn't she cause some of the many cars they passed to drive in front of John Connor and prevent his escape?
Corrected entry: TX may be able to gain control of computerized devices, but driving a car remotely is ridiculous. How does she shift it from park into drive? How does she steer? Driving a car is a mechanical process. If the car itself was already equipped with a computerized remote device, and she gained control of THAT, she could do it, but that's not the case. Remote control of a normal car goes beyond "controlling machines" - it's more like telekinesis.rbryant73
Corrected entry: The Terminator makes a big deal about saving John and Katherine so they can stop the machines, but, what about finding and protecting Kyle Reese? The future would be kinda screwed if John's father wasn't alive to be sent back in time. It's got nothing to do with him being born after the war, because John wasn't born until 1985 but that didn't stop the machines trying to kill his mother. Reese was also one of John's lieutenants. So, regardless of whether or not the Machines knew he was John's father, the fact that John's lieutenants are being killed off should make it somewhat of a priority to make sure that Reese is found and protected.MoonFaery
Corrected entry: When the T-800 starts listing the names of people the T-X was sent back to kill, it lists them alphabetically. He lists "Brewster, Robert" yet doesn't list "Brewster, Katherine", when the T-X was obviously sent to kill her too.
Corrected entry: Why can't the TX catch John and Catherine when they are running in the particle accelerator but she can catch up with a hearse while running through the woods?
Corrected entry: All throughout the movie, we see that both the T-850 and the T-X are 1-2 ton killing machines (as evident by many a fight scene). So why is that when they get in and out of vehicles (i.e. the motorcycle, the hearse, etc.) the shocks on the cars don't respond to such a high amount of strain. Surely the police motorcycle, especially, couldn't sustain such an amount of weight, and if so, it certainly wouldn't be able to get to top speed as easily as it did in the chase scene with the crane.
Corrected entry: The windows in the vet truck would have been shattered (or at least cracked) after being hit numerous times by police cruisers and running into various objects.
Corrected entry: During the scene in Catherine's hospital, the TX determines that John Connor has been there recently by tasting some of his blood and matching the DNA. This raises the question of how did the machines manage to get a sample of John's blood in the first place? And even if they did somehow manage, since John was not considered a target why would they bother giving her the data for his blood?
Corrected entry: When the TX is driving the crane, the Terminator takes over the winch and drops it through a sewer grate, causing it to literally pull through the road after the truck. Yet, at the same time the rope is unwinding off the winch. Why would a rope continuously unwinding start to tear through solid road? Furthermore, why does it only stop tearing through when the rope reaches the end of the winch and cause the crane to fold in on itself?
Corrected entry: How does the T-X know to find Catherine at the veterinary clinic at 5:30 AM? Wouldn't she have gone to her home to search for her at that hour? Catherine was only there because she was called out for an unexpected emergency.
Corrected entry: Exactly how does the T-850 know Sarah Conner was cremated and guns put in her casket? John Conner didn't know where she was buried, and Kate never met her. Did the Mexicans find John later and tell him? Or did Kate program the T-850 based on what he said at the cemetery? If it's the latter, this creates a causality loop, because the only way anyone knows about the weapons is the T-850. But if the T-850 was programmed based on Kate's previous experience with it, then older Kate knows the T-850 helped them go to the Skynet lab, which led to them being sent to the shelter. So then why doesn't T-850 just take them to Skynet to begin with, instead of arguing that he is going to take them to safety?
Corrected entry: In the scene at the veterinarian's, the T-850 throws Catherine into the van. He then slams the doors and grabs a tire iron. He puts it through the flimsy screen door handles on the back of the van, and then bends it double using one hand. This should rip the handles right off the door.
Corrected entry: The TX uses clothes (or copies their form) from the lady in the parked car. Then later we can see repeatedly that she is wearing the lady's earrings. Maybe it's just me, but I don't see the TX, a lethal killing machine, putting in earrings. It's a waste of time and the clothes will make her blend in anyway.DenizenZERO
Corrected entry: The Terminatrix drives the FBI car from the back seat, steering through the agent's chest, but who is stepping on the gas, and brake?
Corrected entry: When the female terminator arrives at the animal hospital we hear the glass from the front door breaking. When Catherine escapes through the same doors, there is no broken glass. The female terminator then walks through the same doors and the door on the left shows the broken glass that looks like it's been cut out.MCKD
Corrected entry: When the T-X shoots the teenager at the fast food restaurant, there is a passenger seat between her and the window. When going through a drive-through, the driver's seat is closest to the pick-up window.
Corrected entry: When the Terminator opens the casket of Sarah Connor it is filled to the top with weapons. In the next scene the Terminator is carrying the casket on his shoulder with John Connor inside. The casket is put inside the back of a hearse and driven away. In one of the following scenes John Connor (outside of the casket) and the open casket are shown in the same shot and the casket is filled with weapons; there is no indication that it was filled back up with weapons after John Conner got out. There would be no way that he could have fit inside the casket with all of the weapons as well.
Corrected entry: In the scene where the Terminatrix travels back from the future she is naked and proceeds to first find some clothes (and a vehicle). However, later in the film her clothes change as part of her appearance when she changes forms. If the same mechanism, which governs the look and shape of her skin and body, is also capable of emulating clothing, then why did she travel to the past naked to begin with? (Aside from the obvious visual benefits).
Corrected entry: Inside the military base, the TX takes on the form of Catherine in order to fool Catherine's father. At that point, the TX still hadn't come into physical contact with Catherine, so it would have been impossible for the transformation to occur.
Corrected entry: The terminator TX arrives from the future in a women's clothing store window, and yet her first task is go searching for clothing.
Corrected entry: The Terminator explains to John Connor that he is powered by 2 hydrogen-cells. In Crystal Peak the Terminator uses his second and last one to blow up himself and the Terminatrix. How can the Terminator still hold the Terminatrix and say "You are terminated" when he already stuffed his second and last energy-cell down her mouth?
