This follows the original “Terminator” from 1984 and carries the story forward in the way great sequels do. With James Cameron at the helm, the story of Sarah and John Connor moves into dangerous new ground, and we’re introduced to an even more lethal Terminator in the form of Robert Patrick. Jonathan really appreciated how T2 started with a solid story before adding all the visual bells and whistles. And the visual effects were nothing short of breathtaking. The great thing about T2 is that the visuals don’t over power the story. They help to make a great story even better.
It’s difficult to find much that doesn’t work with “Terminator 2: Judgement Day”. Ian found that making Arnold in to a hero was an unfortunate choice, and wanted to see a continuation of the Terminator as the villain. We also found the lack of Edward Furlong’s action experience detracted somewhat from our enjoyment from the film. While his performance is somewhat weak, we can appreciated that it was his first acting role, and he certainly did the best he could under those circumstances.
It’s rare, but we all agreed that “Terminator 2” absolutely essential Sci-Fi viewing. It’s a great sequel, strong story, solid casting and acting and the culmination of the Terminator Franchinse. Both Ian and Jonathan suggest you watch Terminator and T2 and stop there. Rem liked T3 and suggests all four, even though T2 stands out as the best.
Also, we talked a bit out the upcoming 10th Annual Podcast awards. This year, The Sci-Fi Movie Podcast is seeking to be nominated in the Movies / Films category. Please nominate us at:
