Summary: Nearly 10 years have passed since Sarah Connor was targeted for termination by a cyborg from the future. Now her son, John, the future leader of the resistance, is the target for a newer, more deadly terminator. Once again, the resistance has managed to send a protector back to attempt to save John and his mother Sarah. (imdb)
Lacks the charming low-tech grit and creepy atmosphere of the first film and replaces them with a horrendously trendy kid and embarrassing comedy. It does have some excellent action scenes, but it creates its own biggest problem in that the T-1000 is never as frightening as the scene of actual human vs. robot warfare in the beginning of the film. This review is for the original theatrical cut rather than the extended version.
One of the better action movies out there. Cameron was able to take the intriguing concept of the first film and develop it even further to create a similarly unique experience. The early use of CGI is interesting, and the action sequences are second to none. Arnold is born to play this role, and Robert Patrick makes for one great villain. The only sore spot here is Edward Furlong's acting.
One of the best sequels ever made. Between this and Aliens, Cameron has a knack for cranking it to 11 in follow-ups. The special effects still look amazing this many years later, and the plot is a simple set-up for a two and a half hour high-speed chase. It's impressive how robotic Schwarzenegger and Patrick can make their expressions and intonations. It's seemingly emotionless work, but their movement is so subtly unnatural. This is absolutely epic cinema, and easily Arnold's best film.
Classic, classic action movie. On rewatch, Furlong is really irritating, but it doesn't detract too much. The chase scene in the drainage area with the bikes and the truck is one of my favorite action scenes of all time.
