Corrected entry: Miles Dyson gets shot in the shoulder by Sarah Connor in his house. In the Special Edition DVD, he picks up an axe (with his good arm) and swings it pretty hard to destroy the CPU he had been working on. This would be nearly impossible since he was in so much pain from his other shoulder being shot.
Corrected entry: When Sarah takes the broken broomstick and hits the psycho-ward guard in the face, you see a large amount of blood come out of his mouth and spray back. When she starts dragging him into the empty cell, there is no blood on the floor.
Corrected entry: When the orderlies are trying to restrain Sarah in the hallway Arnold comes along to rescue her. How does no one see a big man dress in black leather (in a white hallway) with a shotgun before he actually attacks them?
Corrected entry: When Sara beats the guard up with the end of the broom handle she hits him in the face very hard causing a lot of blood on the guard's face. Then she hits him in the back of the knees landing with his bleeding face flat on the floor. When Sara comes back from dumping the body in the closet and picks up the guard's things the floor is completely clean, no blood anywhere.
Corrected entry: I don't know why Sarah bothered filling the syringe (to threaten a warden) with all those chemicals, injecting air into the bloodstream is just as deadly, and would probably lead to a faster death because it blocks the heart and obscures the brain, rather than blood poisoning which takes about twice as long.
Corrected entry: When they are going into the Cyberdyne building, T800 leaves the guns BY THE DOORS. Yet, when the police are blasting away at them, he suddenly, magically has them.
Corrected entry: Arnold wrenches his own arm off to get out of the gears and save the Conners. Yet he later melts himself so his parts can't be used as a design to build Skynet, the villain behind all this. Remember that it was designed the first time around by the arm and chip of the T-800 from the first movie. WHAT HAPPENED TO HIS ARM? They throw the original arm and chip in after Arnold, but they never go back to get the arm in the gears. I think the answer to this is that they wanted to leave an explanation for T3, if they want to. (02:08:50)
Corrected entry: At the start of the film at Cyberdyne Systems, the recruit tells Dyson that he has to sign for a test on the arm and the chip. He then walks through an area where people are wearing protective overalls. How come he doesn't need one or did they just contaminate the whole production area?
Corrected entry: When Arnie drives the police truck back into the cyberdyne building front lobby to rescue Sarah and John from the lift (after the swat team have shot gas into the lobby), the front desk in the middle of the lobby has miraculously disappeared, which allows the truck room to spin around and get everyone out. Had it been there then the truck would have smashed into it.
Corrected entry: At the start of the first film, the robots and the HK's all use lasers to waste the humans, but in the flash backs in the sequel, they are using bullet-firing automatic weapons. Why would the most advanced technology ever created switch to inferior weaponry?
Corrected entry: In the scene where the Terminator shoots at the police with a revolving barrelled gun from a floor of the Cyberdyne building if you look closely you would see that the ammunition strip containing the bullets does not move. This is unusual considering spent shells were raining down from the gun. At least the strip should flip about a bit.
Corrected entry: Why didn't the liquid metal Terminator get sent back in time wearing cloths that were also made of liquid metal? The Terminator is already made of a material that can both travel back in time (is organic) and can morph into other things (is metal). Obviously it wasn't because Skynet had no records of what styles would look unusual at any given time period because even a machine would know that being completely naked is more unusual (thus more noticeable) than being oddly dressed.
Corrected entry: In T2: Special Edition, John and Sarah open up the Terminator's head and switch his chip to write mode so he can learn to be more human, because "Skynet presets the switch to read-only when [a Terminator] is sent out alone." However in the original film, the Terminator is shown learning phrases like "Nice night for a walk" and "Fuck you, asshole" from the street punks in the park.
