Terminator Salvation

Revealing mistake: When Barnes and Marcus Wright are helping John Connor back to the chopper and when Barnes gets in the helicopter, he's revealed to be a stand in. It's in plain sight, at the right side of the screen. (01:41:20)

Revealing mistake: After Marcus rips out his chip implant, he picks up a steel stool and throws it through the screen. The stool stops in midair as soon as it breaks the screen, which is a mistake in itself. The stool does so because there are wires connected to the stool, at least one of which is visible: a microfilament wire from which the stool is suspended. It is attached to the the stool at the pole between the upper and lower plates. The displays on the other computer monitors in the background appear to have been meant to help disguise this, but one line in particular moves in perfect sync with the stool. Also, the wire snaps taut, then wiggles with slack, whereas the lines on the monitors remain completely straight at all times. A previous correction claims that no wire is visible, but that is completely erroneous. (01:30:00)

Revealing mistake: When the tow truck is dragging the bike, as it goes onto the bridge the drag line is visible in the mud from previous takes.

Revealing mistake: In the final scene when Marcus get John in the helicopter he is wearing a glove with markers where his metal hand should be.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Blair escapes with Marcus and Barnes launches an explosive into the tunnel, Marcus hops onto Blair to save her from the scorching flames. After the fire, Marcus' coat would have been burnt to a crisp, his hair singed off and the skin on his back fried. More evidence pointing to this was that his coat was merely one previously worn by a Resistance fighter, not special in any way, and he has regular skin and hair. (01:06:50)

Trivia: Reese's introduction isn't the only thing that stays the same about the character between movies. Here he uses his preferred weapon - a sawed-off shotgun. Marcus isn't keen on having a gun aimed at him though, so he snatches it out of Reese's hands, then teaches him a trick to keep that from happening - fashioning a safety strap. Reese puts that same trick to use after he steals a police shotgun in The Terminator. (00:49:55 - 01:49:58)

Question: What causes the explosion near the start which causes John Connor's helicopter to crash? I may be missing something, but they never seem to address it.

Chosen answer: It was a strike by Skynet on the attacked facility to try and deny the resistance information and anything useful.
