Terminator 2: Judgment Day

Terminator 2: Judgment Day ★★★★

27 years later I could now pick quite a few faults in this. Sarah Connor's voice over, none of the lead characters being particularly likeable, especially John and the whole snake eating it's own tail time travel paradox, that really fucks with your head if you think about it for too long!

However, it is an incredible piece of action film-making, with some amazing set pieces. The practical effects and stunts are at the top of their game, they didn't actually get much better than this before it all went cgi. Robert Patrick is the MVP, both him and his character are awesome. I think it has aged really well, just don't think about the logic of it or it'll scramble your brain.
