Review
TERMINATOR 2: JUDGEMENT DAY is a high-exploding sequel to the original movie that contains action, intensity and drama and has lots of heavy gunfire. It was much better than the original TERMINATOR film such as a bigger budget thrown in such of a larger scale. Changing Arnold Schwarzenegger's terminator from a villain to hero, add in a terminator played by Robert Patrick who's advanced with liquid metal and best of all, it has the famous quote said by Arnold’s protagonist character “Hasta la vista, baby!”. For those who have not watched the movie, I'm not going to tell you of which scene of where he says it to. Between this and JURASSIC PARK (click here), both of these movies to use groundbreaking CGI effects from which it was made by the same team of Industrial Light & Magic.

This action movie TERMINATOR 2 is quite simply perfect in every way, a film which made its mark in history and will be around for many generations to be cherished and appreciated.

Star rating: (5/5) Best Movie Ever
