In short: a ticket! Cos you won't want to miss this. Especially if you've never seen 'Terminator 2' on the big screen - or never seen it at all (yes, I found proof these people do exist!). For all the lucky sods who get to experience the brilliance that is now merely known as T2 for the first time, let me give you a rough idea what it is about. Everyone else, topple your furniture and give me some chinups!
After dispatching the Terminator at the end of T2's predecessor, Sarah ended up in a mental institution. Her son John, the last hope of mankind in the fight against Skynet (a computer which has become aware and taken over the world), is now a teenager and has to live with uncool foster parents; and lo and behold a new Terminator is on its way from the future to deal with this nuisance of a human to ensure Skynet's survival and world reign. But a new saviour is also on its way. Who will get to John first? Does that even matter as we can just make numerous attempts at this scenario until we get the desired result? Time machine, hello! Does that mean endless Terminator films?
The script is tight. No fat to be found here. Everything is set up for easy digestion and builds upon the story of its predecessor nicely. The character choices make sense and everyone grows throughout the film. Something that doesnt seem to be standard procedure anymore nowadays. The performances are great. Nuanced. Layered. The characters interesting and relatable. And the action is top notch! This is a James Cameron film after all.
