Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991)

3 1/2 Stars (out of 4)

A Test of Metal

By Jeffrey M. Anderson

If it's not giving away too much, the machines in The Terminator failed, and so they try again several years later in Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991). Now Sarah's son John (Edward Furlong) is ten years old. The terminator (Arnold Schwarzenegger) appears again, but this time he's on our side, having been captured and re-programmed by the humans. The bad guy is an even deadlier thing, a shape-shifter called the T-1000 (played by Robert Patrick), and made of a kind of malleable liquid metal. Cameron directs with a huge amount of style and personality, effortlessly jumping from the $6.4 million original to the $88 million sequel. It's superbly written with plenty of great ideas and clever twists. Cameron later released a longer, 154-minute cut on video.
