Terminator 2: Judgment Day
This time he's back...for good!
Before director James Cameron created those big, blue, pterodactyl-riding, cat-people in Avatar, he was responsible for taking special effects to eye-popping new heights in Terminator 2: Judgment Day. Proving that Aliens, his terrifyingly awesome equel to Ridley Scott’s Alien was no fluke, Cameron didn’t just phone in his follow-up to his own classic, The Terminator – he upped the ante with a spectacular second chapter that raised the bar for action films and still stands up 20 years later.
A decade after the original Terminator wreaked havoc on Sarah Connor, Arnold Schwarzenegger returns as another Model 101 cyborg. This, time, however, he’s reprogrammed and teleported to the past to protect Sarah’s 10-year-old son John (Edward Furlong) from a newer, more advanced, and more deadly Terminator, the T-1000 (a chilling Robert Patrick), made entirely of shape-shifting liquid metal and bent on killing the boy before he can fulfill his destiny and lead the human resistance in the future war with the tyrannical machines. Together, John, Sarah, and Arnie’s good Terminator must try to defeat the seemingly indestructible T-1000 and prevent nuclear war on Judgment Day from occurring.
