TERMINATOR 2 : JUDGMENT DAY (1991)
A film by James Cameron.
Cast: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Linda Hamilton, Edward Furlong.
Nearly 10 years have passed since Sarah Connor was targeted for termination by a cyborg from the future. Now her son, John, the future leader of the resistance, is the target for a newer, more deadly terminator. Once again, the resistance has managed to send a protector back to attempt to save John and his mother Sarah.
From the opening the kid develops a close relationship with the terminator. The terminator is suppose to do what the kid tells him to, and he tells him not to kill people, so he shoots them in the legs. It sets off a neat twist on the tradition of the Schwarzenegger special effects film; this time, instead of corpses littering the screen, the Arnold character shoots to maim or frighten. It is fun for a kid to have your own terminator and that’s one of the inspirations in the screenplay by director James Cameron and William Wisher. the terminator becomes a father to the kid because as far as we know his real father comes from the future. It has comedy too and as the kid tells him to lighten up and stop talking like a computer. After they freed his mother from the mental institution they encounter a deadlier terminator a T 1000 who is deadlier than the one they sent years ago. Patrick is splendid as a villain. great film sequel that is. I will not review Terminator 3 because it is not that good.
