Dan Poorman’s review published on Letterboxd:
Its reputation precedes it. This movie is killer. The practical and visual effects (especially as they pertain to the T-1000, an excellent villain) are in lockstep, with each serving and enhancing the other. I don't even mind the dated CGI as much, simply because the practical stuff is so damn good. At times it legit feels like I'm watching a Carpenter film. Viscerally cool. Retro chic. Plenty of "Hell yeah!" moments. I'm fully onboard. Arnold rules!
It's too bad our real-life evil AIs are lame-ass things like ChatGPT and Midjourney. I suppose there's time yet for humanity to be neutralized by some actual Terminator-style robots, but I won't hold my breath.
Glory to King Weirdo Jim Cameron. I wish he'd ditch the blue people for harder shit like this again. Insert T-800 thumbs-up here!
