He said he'd be back and he is, programmed to protect the boy who will be mankind's post-nuke resistance leader. But the T-1000, a shape-changing, ultimate killing machine, is also on the boy's trail. Twice the mayhem, five times the special effects, ten times the budget of the first, but without Arnold it'd be half the movie. The word hasn't been invented to describe the special effects, particularly THE scariest nuclear holocaust scene yet. Worldwide megahit, but the $100 million budget nearly ruined the studio; Arnold accepted his $12 million in the form of a jet.

Terminator 2: Judgment Day
Star_onStar_onStar_onStar_on 4.0 4.0

I would watch this movie over and over again when I was little. I had the Terminator action figure and I had the Sean Conner action figure on his dirt bike. I would play with them as I watched it. Out of all of the Terminator movies, this one is my favorite. Arnold has some well-known quotes and is definitely a huge bad ass in this movie. The liquid metal guy was cool even though he was the bad guy. He could change into different people and not get shot by bullets or cut in half. I don't really like the part when Arnold cuts the skin off his arm to show he is a robot. It grosses me out. In the end of the movie when they are all in the factory, it puts me on the edge of my seat every time. When I was little, I cried every time the Terminator went in the hot liquid and died, I guess i should say. In all I love this movie.
