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.
The quintessential sequel, the quintessential sci-fi actioner & one of the greatest films ever made, James Cameron’s sequel to his breakthrough classic is such a massive upgrade over its predecessor that it ends up decimating the 1984 original in all filmmaking departments with effortless ease, and remains one of the most influential, entertaining & breathtaking action extravaganzas to ever grace the silver screen.
A highly irresistible, pulse-pounding, high-octane, full-throttled & top-gear action spectacle that’s filled with some of the most dangerous, daring & heart-stopping stunts ever captured on the film celluloid, Terminator 2: Judgment Day is the perfect definition of a worthy sequel that presents its renowned director at the peak of his gifted talents, is the finest work of his illustrious career, and…
Terminator 2: Judgement Day is a bigger film in every possible way compared to Cameron’s lean and mean original. It is ambitious, elaborately staged, obscenely expensive and a little bit flabby. It has a different, lighter energy to the relentless classic that preceded it as it expands on the universe and becomes a benchmark for practically every action blockbuster that followed in its monumental wake.
It is a sequel that has been reprogrammed, losing its meanness for spectacle and occasional comedy as Cameron plays with a whole new set of tools at his disposal. As a devoted fan of the lean lo-fi charms of The Terminator it is hard not to be slightly disappointed by this semi family friendly direction,…
F*ck me sideways! Wow what a good movie! How come i haven't seen this in all my 17 years of living on this earth!
Look at those special effects, such an improvement over the first one. Butt-naked Arnold as Model 101 enters the scene. Again. "You forgot to say please." Really? Run man, just run. Oh yeah! Nice bike. Damn, that grab and pull was fast! Sunglasses, of course. Arnie doesn't roll without sunglasses. Butt-naked Robert Patrick as T-1000 enters the scene. The cop uniform suits him well. The character introductions in this and The Terminator remind me of the way characters were introduced in For a Few Dollars More and The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. Westerns are awesome. Edward Furlong as John Connor enters the scene acting all cool. Little brat. Linda Hamilton as Sarah Connor enters the scene all sweaty,…
The Zenith of Cameron (or is that to come?), otherwise known as making every other director in the world annoyingly (but happily) state, "Ah fuck, how are we gonna compare to that shit?".
I don't think anything compares to Arnold Schwarzenegger shooting a massive magazine of bullets into the T-1000 at point blank range, or the T-1000 walking out of a mirage of fire in his liquid form, or Sarah Connor's nightmare, or that perfect opening sequence, or the Bad to The Bone needle-drop, or that scene where Arnold falls for the "too slow" high-five trick (Arnold's reaction is hysterical), or that scene when THAT THUMB GOES UP. GODDAMMIT CAMERON. THANK YOU FOR THIS.
Getting to watch Terminator 2 was far tougher than it should have been when it was released. In fact, for a while it seemed to be the film that didn't want me to see it and, when I did see it, the circumstances were not exactly comfortable.
1) So, me and my best friend decided we were going to mosey along to a pokey old cinema called Cine City in Withington, Manchester (I think it's a Sainsbury's now). There were only about 6 people in. He had already seen it before. Two drunk blokes walked in. One of them jokingly asked if they could have some of the Milky Bar I'd bought. I nervously declined. They laughed. My best mate…
Alongside The Godfather: Part II and The Silence of the Lambs, T2 once again proves that sequels can outshine their predecessors. Arnie is back.
Don't get me wrong, I love the original 1984 Terminator; but I feel that in this sequel, James Cameron uses his much bigger budget to really create the movie he wants to make. We see riveting chases and shootouts, plus some revolutionary effects that allow for some great moments. Terminator 2: Judgment Day is thrilling for its entire runtime, has interesting characters, and supplies a magnificent spectacle of action.
things that are better than the terminator: algebra, the gerbil that went up richard gere's asshole, twinkies
Tangled up in blue.
Terminator 2: Judgment Day is one of the best action movies ever made. And one of the best sequels ever made. There's not much for me to write at this moment that might elucidate just how great the movie is. So I'll just draw attention to one of my favorite scenes in the director's cut - a scene that shows what a great filmmaker James Cameron is. In order to allow their robotic bodyguard (Arnold Schwarzenegger) to learn from his experiences in the past, Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton) and her son John (Edward Furlong) must remove a chip from his brain. It would be a simple enough effect to execute in 2016, but computer graphics were not so advanced 25…
so THAT'S why people love cameron
Special Edition: A+
AKA "Terminator Goes To School"
It suffers greatly from the curse of the sequel, with the original delight of the first becoming the oft-trod path of the second. There is also the curse of the quip-- the catch-phrases of the first film were not meant to be such, but were mere organic developments of memorable moments, whereas in this film it became imperative to manufacture them at a rate of one every twenty minutes. Then, too, there is the perceived need to humanize the 800/101, because he's working for the good guys this time.
Finally, there is the planting of a seed which for me germinated in the next film-- if we're told in the first film that the thing after Sarah was a last-minute, desperation move by Skynet... how did it manage to launch two more, and why did it dick around with sending the least of its units first?
All the films from all the editions, including those subsequently removed, presently totalling 1187. An easy way of seeing how…
