Terminator 2: Judgement Day
Sci-Fi Excellence, A Superior Sequel.
A definetly a step-forward for the genre, and cinema all-together. It's what happens when you create a sequel to a slowly growing phenomenon that is, The Terminator.
T-2: Judgement dayis one of the few movies out there that tops it's predecessor in almost every aspect of how a film works. Action, Suspense, Character, Plot and so much more. More than I can even mention. T-2 takes everything I loved in the original, pulled some very risky moves, to make put together one of the best sci-fi films ever created, and more importantly, it's of the best films I've viewed. The original 'Terminator' film had a simple plot with a great background. Though the foreground was simple, and once your'e aware of the background, it doesn't come to mind anymore. The objective is to have Sarah Connor terminated. In T-2, multiple things are happening, all in regards to changing Humanity's fate, and shaping the future correctly. Arnie (The Terminator) is reprogrammed and sent by John Connor (2029 A.D) to the past when John is a teenager in an unfitting foster home. The Terminator is sent to protect him from another Terminator sent from the other side, who is out to find John with no remorse. This Terminator is even harder to destroy due to it's liquid metal consistency. As Sarah (his mother) finds ways to escape her high security captivity in a mental hospital, Arnie keeps the boy as far away as possible from the Terminator out for him. Once all three (Arnie, John, Sarah) are together, they figure out how the future will assemble, and in different ways and opinions they voyage to destroy everything Skynet could use to start the future war. Really is Judgement Day.
Absolutely brilliant. The action scenes made me jump, and never has suspense interacted so well with me in any movie. The 'no remorse' aspect can really freak you out when well constructed characters are in serious danger. Not many movies at some scenes, make me lean up and say to myself, "Holy Shit", but some of the action scenes are ridiculous. Again when I said The Terminator was the definition of 'Prime Entertainment', the same goes for Judgement Day. The great thing is, this film's plot is consistently intact. One of the many greatest examples of pure Sci-Fi excellence.
In my opinion, among the best sequels ever made.
