Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991)
Nearly 10 years have passed since Sarah Connor was targeted for termination by a cyborg from the future. Now her son, John, the future leader of the resistance, is the target for a newer, more deadly terminator. Once again, the resistance has managed to send a protector back to attempt to save John and his mother Sarah.
It is not deep, but it is fun to watch. It does have a bit more of an edge to it than other similar films.
Fun premise, good actors, bad writing. This film seemed to have potential at the beginning but it quickly devolves into a trite action film. Ultimately it's very boring.
It really made me laugh, but for some moments I was tearing up because I could relate so much.
Cameron strikes again. Before his Ego and two billion dollar earning movies turned him into a bit of a prat, Cameron made this movie. He turned things on their head by having two Terminators come back, one programmed to be good, the other programmed to be a killer. The T1000 is amazing with its morphing abilities. Unlike the stupid TX from T3, which could create all kinds of weapons, the T1000 is a weapon. As long as it can stab or grab. It's grounded in physics of reality. The action is this is even crazier than Terminator, but then it had a budget twenty times larger. A brilliant movie that's endlessly watchable.
Cameron did something that is difficult to achieve: to make a sequel better than its predecessor! Judgment Day was ahead of its time, the graphics and CGI still look amazing and I will never get bored of this film. Judgment Day is a masterpiece.
Terminator 2: Judgement Day 3D - It's amazing how well this movie holds up, the story is still engaging and full of great moments and the action scenes have only gotten better with age, these scenes don't just look cool, but actually carry a certain weight, it's the perfect blend of tension, practical effects, CGI and a good dose of good old fashioned action! No shaky cam or other cheap gimmicks here. This was already among my top 10 movies of all time and this new re-release only cemented it's position!
Great Fan of Arnold here!!! Terminator 2 Is THE BEST!!! Terminator 2 can never be re-done or topped. In my mind, only one movie comes close, And that is "The Crow " with Brandon Lee. I'd have to say, an even tie for Favorite Action Movie Ever. Terminator 2's mission is, To Protect You. I say Terminator 2 is a must see for everybody.
