If I were to describe Terminator 2 with one word, it would be: Smooth-Running
There’s seriously not a single thing I could find that was tedious about this movie. The action scenes were top notch. The characters, dialogue, and cinematography were great. The effects were amazing for an early 90s movie.
The storyline was solid, simple to follow. It was also engaging. The Terminator has to protect John Connor in order to preserve the resistance. Seeing that hallway scene where John sees the Terminator for the first time is awesome. The chase scene had good cinematography and it was intense to watch. Sarah escaping, then the trio going to stop Judgement day was a perfect way of adding more parts to the storyline. I still can’t believe how good the effects were.
“No, no, no, no. You gotta listen to the way people talk. You don't say "affirmative," or some shit like that. You say "no problemo." And if someone comes on to you with an attitude you say "eat me." And if you want to shine them on it's "hasta la vista, baby."
The ending was not bad and it should’ve ended there. They should’ve not made a sequel. Terminator 2 is the action movie that films nowadays try to copy. Well you can’t copy this slick film.
