Terminator 2 Continuity Error...

So we watched Cutting Edge today and i just felt it would be worth mentioning this continuity error in the film Terminator 2, as both James Cameron and some of his editors were presented to us in the documentary. For me, continuity errors are my forte, i live to find these types of errors in film, just so that i know the big boys in the industry aren't completely invulnerable. To be honest, i think my family have come to hate watching films with me because i sit there picking the film apart, but i suppose that's because i enjoy editing so much and can admire how much effort has gone into each scene. Anyway, check out the link below for the chase scene between the motorbike and the truck. If you skip to about 1 minute 50 seconds, you will see the truck being driven off the bridge, when it comes to contact with the ground, the windscreens are smashed and come out of the truck, but in the next cut, we see that the truck has glass in its windscreen again. I'm sure James Cameron and his team were kicking themselves when they saw this cut, but i suppose that's the problem with big budget films, they only have enough money to get it right once, other wise they have to put up and make do with what they have. That's not to say i didn't enjoy the film though, everyone knows it's an absolute classic.
