Terminator 2: Judgement Day (1991) Movie Review

Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991) - Movie Review - Quick Movie Reviews by Haris

I haven’t watched this movie in a long time. I have it on DVD, it’s just been sitting on my shelf for a long time, collecting dust. This is the best Terminator movie and honestly one of the best action movies ever. A great plot, great acting from Arnold Schwarzenegger, Linda Hamilton and Edward Furlong, some truly well-filmed mind-blowing action scenes and pretty effective moments of gore.

It made me uncomfortable as a kid and also made uncomfortable when I last watched it a couple of years ago. As you guessed by the title, this is a sequel. I have watched this movie before Terminator (1984) and I wasn’t confused by this movie’s plot. So, even if you didn’t watch the first one, you won’t be confused.

So, 10 years have passed since the first robot called The Terminator tried to kill Sarah Connor and her son John who will become the future leader of humanity in a resistance against the Machines. Now, a new Terminator, called the T-1000, is sent back through time by Skynet. He is more advanced and more powerful than the last one and his mission is to kill John Connor when he’s still a child.

However, John is protected by the Terminator who is identical to the one that tried and failed to kill Sarah Connor in 1984. And so the battle for the future of mankind begins. A 2-hour and 17-minute thrill-ride that’s worth your time. Watch the first two Terminator movies and none of the other three. Those three are not worth your time. If you want entertainment as well as quality in your action sci-fi movie, the first two Terminator movies absolutely have it both. 10/10*
