Transformed from a thriller based original to this action-packed sequel, this is the king of The Terminator franchise. The acting is just superb. Arnie as the "good Terminator" is so good it's easy to forget that he is an actor made of flesh and bones just pretending to be a cyborg, he is that believable. Linda Hamilton is the highlight as she is a tormented and tough as nails Sarah Connor who has to come to terms with the fact that her son John Connor, is just as important when it comes to loving him as it is protecting him. The action is top class and there is drama, humour and thrills abroad. Something for everyone in this benchmark for the franchise.
Just revisited for the first time in years on my 120" projector and it still tands the test of time.
I recall this being one of the most anticipated movies in my time and it actually lived up to the billing.
I liked the extra scenes, especially seeing Kyle Reece again.
My favourite Terminator movie ever!
One of the classic Arnie movies. Sensational when it was released, still a favorite of mine.
One of the best and one one my all time favourites, Arnie is tops in this absolute ripper of a film great atcing great story and great lines.
If you can find the unextended edition watch it instead. The inclusion of quite a lot of extra footage really screws up the pacing and there's a very long boring 45 minutes when they go hide in the desert.
If the entire world suddenly had a memory laps and totally forgot about Terminator 2 - and this film was released even today, it would take the world by storm all over again. It is simply that brilliant, and quite timeless.
i like this movies it's a great film to watch the terminator when he killed the other terminator for his planet and then the good terminator say to him"lasta la vista baby" this movie rocks
Timeless classic you can always re-visit.
Second Terminator movie. This time with Arnie as the good guy coming back in time to save a young teenager John Conner (Humans only last hope in the future). I thought better than the first with loads of effects and more of a budget. Fantastic. Must See.
Glad I won't be around in 2029 .. I am sure the young people like the gimmicks.
Absolutely brilliant!! I remember going to see this movie when it was first released. I loved it then and nothing has changed. The extra scenes in this extended edition are a welcome surprise.
Arnie at his best. Robert Patrick is great as the evil terminator. The special effects are starting to look a bit dated but for their time are spectacular.
Best of the Terminator movies, really enjoyable.
