My 200th rating! Terminator 2: Judgement Day.
What a treat! This is an incredible sequel to 1984's Terminator, glorious action and drama throughout - this is how sci-fi movies should be. I had heard several times that the sequel was better than the original but I wasn't too sure what to believe because that is rarely the case but in this case it was very true, no question about it! The original was good but this was better.
I was glad to see Schwarzenegger as a protagonist this time which helped a lot, also Linda Hamilton's character was a lot more interesting this time as she was a bit disturbed. The kid who played John Connor was outstanding and he worked so well with Arnie.
This made me laugh a few times too, I remember thinking I shouldn't be laughing (at the scene were the guy licked Sarah Connor's face for some reason whilst she was strapped down) and when John Connor tries to get the terminator to smile, that was actually hilarious.
Overall I cannot give T2 less than 100% approval, so there it is, as a big Schwarzenegger fan I was delighted when I saw this for the first time last night. True Lies and Kindergarten Cop are must sees for Schwarzenegger at his best as well.
Thanks for reading my 200th rating review.
