Terminator 2: Judgment Day

Terminator 2: Judgment Day ★★★★★

My opinion on this film has changed over time. When I was young, I find this thrilling, and disturbing. Growing up, I find this overrated on my next watch. Next watch, it was great but not amazing. Now watching it as I got older, I can totally 110% understand why this sequel is better than the first!
Turning the horror vibe from the first film into an action flick, alongside the emotional weight of the story/character, and memorable performances from Schwartznegger, Hamilton, Edward Furlong, and Robert Patrick is what made Terminator 2: Judgement Day not just one of the greatest sci-fi films of all time, but one of the greatest action films of all time. It’s Oscar winning special effects are so dazzling, and so amazing that it is such an achievement in technology. It’s action scenes are so heart pulsing that it’s one of those where people should not pause the whole thing, and wait until it’s over. After watching this, I find Judgement Day to be much better than the original Terminator (one of the rare sequels where it’s better than the original like The Godfather).
