Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991) Review

Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991) is a 2h 17-min rated R American science-fiction action thriller film that is a sequel to The Terminator (1984) and is the second installment in the Terminator franchise. The movie had an estimated budget of $102 million and grossed over $519 million at the box office. Director and co-writer James Cameron (Aliens (1986), Titanic (1997), Avatar (2009)) did an incredible job bringing us this non-stop action film that is filled with bone-crushing violence. So, Terminator fans have waited about seven years to see Terminator 2 which twists the plot and characters ingeniously. The movie contains brief male nudity (buttocks), extreme graphic violence, bad language, blood, intense frightening scenes that might be scary for younger audiences, suspense, tension, and action.

Terminator 2 revolves around Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton - The Terminator (1984), Dante’s Peak (1997), Beauty and the Beast (1987-1989)) and her ten-year-old son John. Sarah and John (Edward Furlong - American History X (1998), Pecker (1998), Detroit Rock City (1999)) is running from a new Terminator T-1000 that can turn into liquid metal and shapeshift. The new Terminator T-1000 (Robert Patrick - Walk the Line (2005), The X-Files (2000-2002), The Unit (2006-2009)) was assigned to kill John and sent back in time to carry out his assignment. The future wants to kill John because John will become the leader of the human resistance. A not so new Terminator T-800 (Arnold Schwarzenegger - The Terminator (1984), Predator (1987), Total Recall (1990), Pumping Iron (1977)) was also sent back in time, but his job is to protect John.

T-800, John, and Sarah did not take long to join together as the T-1000 pursues them. Sarah did not stick to the plan and ran off on her own mission which is to kill researcher Miles Dyson (Joe Morton - Speed (1994), Eureka (2006-2012), American Gangster (2007)) who is the head of Cyberdyne. Cyberdyne is the company that will make Terminators and also the Skynet in the future. Will the team reunite in time? The movie was a fantastic thrilling adventure that I will see again and again but years apart because too much of something is not that good. I would recommend Terminator 2 to all adventure fans who love themselves a fun filled violence packed movie that will keep you in suspense for a while.
