Terminator 2: Judgment Day

Terminator 2: Judgment Day ★★★★★

In the past, I often underrated this film because everyone was so enthusiastic about James Cameron. Upon a revisit, I now view Terminator 2 for what it is. Terminator 2: Judgment Day is James Cameron's peak in filmmaking: an exciting tour de force of technological innovation with an anti-totalitarian purpose. Despite its age, the computer-generated imagery holds up marvelously. In historical retrospect, the friendship between the friendly Terminator and John Connor precedes the friendship between Hogarth Hughes and the Iron Giant. If a machine can understand the essence of human feeling, anyone can acknowledge this, according to Sarah Connor. This may sound idealistic, but Cameron and his company's execution is a unifying experience.
