Jake Apgar’s review published on Letterboxd:
Even watching it again I think I liked it even better this time.
Every action scene in this is iconic, the standout being the first chase scene. Honestly almost every scene or line that is spoken in this movie is iconic.
The only parts that drag are the parts near the beginning with Sarah Connor in the hospital but those parts are crucial to her character and are a result of actual consequences from the first film, which is another thing I love about this movie is that it isn't just a bigger is a better sequel, it's actually a great continuation of the characters from the first movie.
The ending is great and pretty sad as well.
This is probably my favorite action movie from the ’80s or 90’s up there with the Matrix, Die Hard, Predator, and First Blood.
The acting is really good all-around with Schwarzenegger of course stealing the show as the T-800. Robert Patrick as the T-1000 is one of the most iconic and cool movie villains ever. The kid who plays John Connor is actually really good in this as well and really delivers on some emotional scenes. Linda Hamilton plays a very damaged Sarah Connor from the first movie and she pulls it off very well
