This might be my all time favourite film. Who wouldn’t love a film with scenes like this in it?
Arnie is back. But this time he’s the good guy.
The T-800 (Arnold Schwarzenegger) has been reprogrammed by John Connor in the future and sent back to defend his younger self (Edward Furlong) from the latest terminator, the T-1000 (Robert Patrick).
Linda Hamilton is back as Sarah Connor and, far from the shy waitress of the first film, she is kicking serious butt.
It won 4 Oscars in 1992 including Best Sound and Visual Effects and is unsurprisingly currently voted number 41 on IMDb.
One of the few examples of the first in film franchise not being the best.
Don’t let this put you off. It is a brilliant movie and a corner-stone of 1980s action Sci Fi.
An indestructible cyborg (Arnold Schwarzenegger) is set back from the future to murder Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton), a waitress who’s unborn son will lead the humans in an war against the machines. Meanwhile a soldier from the future (Michael Biehn) is determined to protect her.
James Cameron’s casting is sublime. Arnie’s unsurprisingly realistic as the emotionless robot. Complete with stop-motion animation, this is an epic action.
