Terminator 2: Judgment Day Reviews
Mr. Cameron has made a swift, exciting special-effects epic that thoroughly justifies its vast expense and greatly improves upon the first film's potent but rudimentary visual style.
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.
It's Cameron's show; he's the reigning king of movie pow, with dark wit and a poet's eye for mayhem. T2 cost a reported $100 million, and you can actually see where the money went.
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.
