Notable Cast: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Linda Hamilton, Robert Patrick, Edward Furlong
Back before he became the pompous ass he is today, Cameron was the man to go to for great science fiction and action films. He wrote and directed films like "Terminator 2" that massively changed the way we see an action film by raising the stakes to astonishing heights. Considering the original film was a low budget over night success fairy tale, its odd to see how the massive budget and heightened sense of epic-ness would morph this franchise into the blockbuster territory. This is a bigger, badder, and bolder sequel that despite coming almost a decade later holds its own in new ways.
Sarah Conner (Hamilton) has been incarcerated as a terrorist. Her son (Furlong), whom she had been training for his role as leader of the human resistance against the machines, is now with foster parents and seems to be quite the hoodlum now. When a new 'liquid metal' prototype Terminator (Patrick) is sent back to find John Conner and delete him from the past, its up to a reprogrammed Terminator (Schwarzenegger) sent by John from the future to save them before all hope is lost...again.

|"Nope. That was Arnold Strong. I'm Arnold Schwarzenegger."|
|A cold welcome for franchise newcomer Robert Patrick.|
|When a fence says do not touch...we really mean "touch it and the apocalypse will happen". It's a slight mistranslation.|
