Set the standard for modern Hollywood's F/X-driven mega-productions and cemented James Cameron's dystopian vision as modern science-fiction's saga par excellence.

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.

Terminator 2 is a state-of-the-art action movie, all right: It gets you thinking that the most reasonable thing might just have been to blow everyone away.

May 18, 2009
A humongous, visionary parable that intermittently enthralls and ultimately disappoints. T2 is half of a terrific movie -- the wrong half.
May 18, 2009
For all its state-of-the-art pyrotechnics and breathtaking thrills, this bruisingly exciting movie never loses sight of its humanity. That's its point, and its pride.
August 2, 2008
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.

This remains one of the greatest and most adored action movies of the 90s.

Arnold Schwarzenegger is more comfortable and assured here than the first time around, reprising a role so perfectly suited to the voice and physique that have established him as a larger-than-life film persona.

As a fancy mechanism fueled by the pleasure of watching legions of people and equipment being summarily destroyed, this is pretty hot stuff.
February 10, 2007
It's big and clever, and one could argue that even Skynet would appreciate its technical skill.

June 24, 2006
Structured as a simple chase, the story sags midway, but the first hour and last 30 minutes display an enjoyably relentless bravura.
August 27, 2003
Oh, it's well made. It's also overproduced and overlong and the ultimate in the effects-driven movie syndrome.
| Original Score: 3/5
