Terminator 2: Judgment Day Reviews

These are very special special effects, but that's about all the film is, special effects.

People Magazine

Shamefully sadistic, achingly dull and totally predictable, it rehashes the far superior 1984 original.

The picture is full of spectacular action sequences and dazzling special effects, but the narrative doesn't have the snap of the original's: it's lumbering and monotonous, and it carries a heavy-handed anti-nuke message.

A humongous, visionary parable that intermittently enthralls and ultimately disappoints. T2 is half of a terrific movie -- the wrong half.

The best efforts of highly trained talents are not enough to save the picture from its own deep-rooted foolishness.

Tons of action, violence, and special effects.

Nobody, I think, will complain that it doesn't have enough action.

Few films have matched it within the science fiction genre for sheer white-knuckle exhilaration.

Linda Hamilton turns in another terrific performance as the fiercely committed heroine who puts a necessary human face on Cameron's high-decibel mayhem and pyrotechnical bravura.

Schwarzenegger is in impeccable deadpan form, milking his tough-guy image for all it's worth and getting laughs out of the Terminator's wooden parroting of slang ("No problemo" probably will be a catch-phrase to reckon with this summer).

Rob Vaux
Flipside Movie Emporium

Less a sequel than a reimagining, an alternate and equally compelling take on the dark vision of the original.

The special effects from this 1991 classic action flick still hold up in today's world. T2 is a timeless classic that will live on forever.

With all the time-travel and cyborg collision going on, Cameron does a fine job believing in his logic. Even if the math doesn't always add up, it's easy to be swept up by this audacious movie.

Like Mt. Rushmore, it is huge and a must-see, but one wonders if it really was such a good idea in the first place.

It's just not as good a film as The Terminator, despite soundly surpassing it in a few areas.

It's big and clever, and one could argue that even Skynet would appreciate its technical skill.

As a fancy mechanism fueled by the pleasure of watching legions of people and equipment being summarily destroyed, this is pretty hot stuff.

Cameron directs with a huge amount of style and personality, effortlessly jumping from the $6.4 million original to the $88 million sequel.
