embodies all that is great about summer movie thrills while also weaving through the various chase scenes, shoot-outs, and massive billowing explosions a genuine sense of human feeling and moral concern

Twenty-six years later, T2 has lost none of its thrilling power, feminist ferocity, and ominous foreboding-and seen on a big screen, it still puts most of its modern Hollywood progeny to shame.
August 31, 2017
Even though this movie was made nearly 30 years ago, almost nothing about it feels dated.

Twenty-six years after its release on Independence Day weekend in 1991, it's difficult not to watch Terminator 2: Judgement Day through a scrim of irony.

Linda Hamilton gets so little due respect over the years for how much of the film's midsection rides on her.
July 4, 2015
An explosive sequel.

"The Terminator 2" is movie-making on a massive scale, packed dense with spectacular touches that are too many to describe - escape scenes, helicopter stunts and huge explosions.
June 30, 2015
It proves that crackingly fast entertainment doesn't have to be mindless, and it manages to do so, with an endearingly cheeky sense of humour.
August 12, 2014
Best of all, though, the level of tension in the film is palpable because we can`t figure out how Arnold is going to terminate the Terminator.

Cameron`s superb action direction and stunning visual effects -- plus Schwarzenegger`s ultimately endearing (yes, endearing) performance -- will blast every other summer film to kingdom come.
July 29, 2013
A pop epiphany, marking that commercially creative point where the power of Hollywood meets the purity of myth.
July 29, 2013
The best efforts of highly trained talents are not enough to save the picture from its own deep-rooted foolishness.
July 29, 2013
Cameron has done an honourable and undoubtedly skilful job of tailoring his new film to the tastes of the times without too much sloppy compromise. He's made a science fiction film with verve, imagination and even a little wit.
July 29, 2013
Terminator 2 does work viscerally, however, and with this kind of movie, that's really what counts. No problemo.

July 29, 2013
These are very special special effects, but that's about all the film is, special effects.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
July 29, 2013
The pathos of the film is the pathos of its leading character -- it is a magnificent machine, but a machine it remains.

July 29, 2013
More elaborate than the original, but just as shrewdly put together, it cleverly combines the most successful elements of its predecessor with a number of new twists to produce one hell of a wild ride.
July 29, 2013
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.
July 29, 2013
Shamefully sadistic, achingly dull and totally predictable, it rehashes the far superior 1984 original.
July 29, 2013
This new picture is optimistically humanist.
