Terminator 2: Judgment Day

Poster for the movie "Terminator 2: Judgment Day"

“Terminator 2: Judgment Day” is the rare sequel that launched a franchise from good to unbelievably great. Does “Terminator 2” hold up after two decades? Absolutely.

This prime specimen of sci-fi action perfection has it all: Edward Furlong escaping in the aqueduct chase. Arnold Schwarzenegger shredding cop cars in the mini-gun shooting gallery. Robert Patrick jamming his finger through countless heads. Linda Hamilton cracking skulls and field-stripping rifles like a pro.

And if all of that doesn’t convince you to listen, imagine the joy of hearing Gene, Roger and Big D try to wrap their heads around time travel in a non-determinist universe. “Terminator 2” is God’s gift to blockbuster moviemaking, and Shat The Movies worships it.
