🎃Ian Curran🎃’s review published on Letterboxd:
Greatest action movie ever ✅
Better than the original ✅
Best remake ever ⁉️
Ive always felt T:2 was more of a remake than a straight up sequel. Cameron wasn’t able to achieve his vision for T:1 due to technological and financial constraints. T:2 felt like his do-over.
There’s no real progression of the Terminator story or mythology in the traditional way a sequel would. Instead T:2 rehashes the same story, plot points and many of the same scenes as the original.
But T:2 never feels like a rehash because it improves upon the original in every way. The graphics and action set pieces are far superior. Couple those improvements with the decision to make Arnie the good guy, and you’ve got something that feels truly new and original; but it’s still just a remake. 😉 😂
