    I know it’s one of your favorite movies, but I only have one question about it!

    Which version of the film do you like better, the theatrical version or the special edition?

    I dunno if this is one of my favourite movies, but it’s definately a brilliant film, anything James Cameron makes is cinematic gold, Terminator, Terminator 2, Aliens, Titanic, Avatar, the list is endless.

    Truly one of the greatest movies ever made. Epic soundtrack, mind-blowing action, amazing characters, and a timeless story which made me cry.
    One of the biggest reaons I love this movie so much, is because of the T-1000. He’s just such an incredibly interesting villain. Being all liquid metal, making his hands into large knives, transforming into other people… Man. He’s so cool.

    A lot of people thinks any movie starring Arnold automatically means mindless killing and action without a story. And that’s exactly where Terminator 2: Judgement Day proves those people wrong.
    I give it 10/10, 6 stars, and a thumbs up. Clearly one of the best things ever made.

    you go that right! this is one of a few movies that will make you go wow while watching the credits. it’s like “i can’t believe how awesome that movie was.”

  • March 11, 2011 at 4:21 am

    Seeing Edward Furlong reminds me of his other 90’s horror movies, such as Brainscan and Pet Sematary 2. Hope Cinemassacre does a review of those in the future.

    Not the best sci-fi movie (2001 space odissey and metropolis are better for me), but really one of the greatest and way better than avatar

    Out of both of camerons films I like the first films better then the second. Alien and Terminator are to me the better films.

      James Cameron had nothing to do with the first Alien. That was directed by Ridley Scott and written by Dan O’Bannon. See imdb or google it for more info.

        To be fair Action_Bastard never said Cameron had anything to do with Alien.

        They just mearly pointed out that the two Cameron films (T2 and Aliens) they found the originals better.

    I have to be honest here.

    I do not understand the praise this film gets.

    Ok, as a stand alone flick it good. But it’s a horrible sequel.

    It pisses over everything said and laid out in the first flick, it’s inconsistant, full of plot holes (The T-1000 can not time travel, it can not be in the past). The T-800 is reduced to a 10 year olds plaything from an unstopable killing machine that can not be reasoned with (yet it “swears” not to kill, ergo reasoning) and will not stop ever.

    In fact the T-800 is an inconsistant and redundant character overall.

    I have no problem with a fictional film breaking “real world” rules, that’s fine. But when a film breaks rules itself sets up…that’s terrible writing.

    The best character in the film Sarah is masivley underused.

    What starts out as an interesting insight to what future knowledge could do to a person’s mind ends up becoming a inane action flick.

      I find it hard to believe the first film and this were written by the same person.

      It’s a perfect example of style over substance.

      As I said before, a fine enough film on it’s own. But a hell of a bad sequel.

      Don’t even get me started on the mundane, brainless effort that was Aliens. This seems to be Cameron’s forte. Making dumbed down, diluted sequels, he did write Rambo II also…nuff said.

      Cameron is a great visual artist, but he’s no storyteller.

      I think he reached his peak with The Terminator and it’s all been downhill from then.

    Hi James, based on your comment about Aliens I decided to buy it. I found a special edition at a Bluckbuster down here in Mexico for 1 dollar. I m about to watch it and i expect shit to come out of my ass.

    Great Review

    One thing basically everybody misses about this movie (I assume) is that, in the preview, it appears that Arnold is, again, the villain; fighting against another unknown, this time a cop. When the movie starts, both character kill to get their outfits, and both just go strait to finding John. They show Arnolds robot perspective, but not T-1000s, and when they speak, T-1000 seems more human. It’s not until they both meet in the mall hallway that you realize that Arnold is the hero. I saw T2 before T1 and I never realized any of this until I saw the preview on the DVD. Changes the whole feel of the beginning of the movie if you can put yourself in the perspective of ONLY seeing T1 and the T2 preview.

    In-fuckin’-deed. I got them a month ago along with Robocop to review my thoughts on those movies. And hell they both blew my fuckind mind again!!
    I love the punch you get on the passionate reviews, James. You’re great.

    Oh ho ho, I have seen T2 and praise it as much as you do. Hopefully more will listen to what you said at the end because it is truly a film worth watching in every level.

    I enjoyed T2, but I do not think it’s a great movie. Terminator is a classic, though.

    The idea of a Terminator sequel was unheard of at the time, but not impossible. The question was how would they do it? If you owned the Special Edition DVD that came out and looked at the deleted scenes there was a scene where the CSM-101/T-800 CPU was discovered in the factory at the end and the factory was actually Cyberdyne, but Cameron initially didn’t included as he wanted no room left. But… there is usually room left open as the arm and crushed endoskeleton were still there so Cyberdyne could do research and develop Skynet. And what we have as a result is the best sequel to an already popular Technoir tale. And so you probably think there was no room left open after this.

    We were wrong.

    Best Terminator Ever!!!!!! I absolutely love T2: Judgment Day
