Terminator 2: Judgment Day

Terminator 2: Judgment Day ★★★★½

The same plot as the original but with a big budget Hollywood makeover.

Although it sanitises the darker elements of the original (Arnie becomes a non-lethal surrogate father figure, there's more humour than I remember) it retains a certain grittiness and doesn't shy away from some death and a lot of carnage. The effects still look great, and the set-pieces still excite.

An excellent Action/Sci-Fi film and a great example of how to make a Hollywood sequel to an independent that becomes a surprise hit. 9/10.
