(1991, James Cameron) "Hasta la vista, baby" Arnold's "back" - reprogrammed to protect Sarah Connor, and her soon-to-be leader of the Human Resistance son, John (Edward Furlong) from the liquid-metal T-1000, the evils of Skynet, and the impending nuclear Judgment Day. Approx. 137 min. 35mm.
“James Cameron's slam-bang 1991 sequel-cum-remake [has] all the virtues of the original—intelligent postmodernist irony, spiffy special effects, effective action, tons of destruction, and Schwarzenegger in the nonhuman role he was born to play. As a fancy mechanism fueled by the pleasure of watching legions of people and equipment being summarily destroyed, this is pretty hot stuff.”
– Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
“It's a tank of a movie, big, powerful and hard to resist. But it's a tank with lightning treads and jaguar agility. The original Terminator was science fiction with an element of shaggy poetry; this Terminator strives more for the mythic. It's heroic pulp.”
– Hal Hinson, The Washington Post
