It neutralises the user codes in the building, there would still be master codes etc. Otherwise how would the police move around in the building, what if there was a fire etc. It is this master code that John cracked. As for the ATM working differerntly: What John appeared to have was a brute force number generator (perhaps with a little optimising AI), ...

First, the Motion Picture Association of America's (MPAA) film-rating system is voluntary and not enforced by law. Still, most theaters in the United States enforce the ratings and don't let children under 17 into R-rated films without a parent or legal guardian. So it's really up to a child actor's parents whether or not they're allowed to see an R-rated ...

From the Script: [...] [...] NEUTRALIZED CODES: Miles Dyson says "[The alarm] neutralizes the codes throughout the building". My guess: I think it would make sense that there is some sort of emergency or master code that does not get neutralized, so security (and/or the big boss) can still open doors. So maybe John Connor cracks ...

Dyson is threatening to blow up the building with an improvised dead man's switch. If the police try to disarm him, he's guaranteed to drop the weight and set off the explosives. They have no chance of success in disarming him. He is giving them a chance of getting out of the building by telling them he doesn't know how much longer he can hold the weight. ...

I stumbled upon this recent question about Terminator 2, in particular about the scene where Miles Dyson dies after having been wounded lethally and trying to buy time for the others by detonating a grenade. He warns the upcoming SWAT team that the grenade will go off shortly and they run away. You are implying in the question that there was a moral ...

I always assumed SWAT didn't die -- that Dyson was able to hold the detonator long enough for SWAT to get to safety. If it's true that the scene-cutting didn't allow enough time elapse for the SWAT escape, I have to think this was an editing decision made for visual effect -- not to indicate that the SWAT guys were killed. Killing SWAT would not add value ...

The situation that they were in was that he was clearly dying and struggling to hold the weight up. He was resigned to dying there. Therefore it is unlikely that they could reason with him before he tripped the explosive either intentionally or not. Hence they have two choices which are either attempt to take the detonator off him and make the IED safe ...
