The sequel to the smash hit The Terminator (1983), is one of the best Sci-Fi movies to have been produced in Hollywood. This movie has been made in such a way that it not necessary to have watched the first installment to appreciate this one.
The story revolves around John Connor, the future leader of the resistance against machines, who is now just a teenager, his mother, Sarah Connor and the two terminators sent through time – one to kill John Connor and the other to protect him. The movie has several well presented action sequences which linger in your mind even after many years of watching the movie. The storyline of this sequel is better than that of the first installment.
Arnold Schwarzenegger, who reprises his role of a killing machine, is superb in the movie. The other actors have also enacted their roles to perfection. This movie had been made at a time when the SFX of today was unavailable. Even with this handicap the SFX in this movie look very believable. James Cameron is really a master storyteller of Sci-Fi. It is because of his direction that this movie has become a cult classic, with several movies and TV shows still being made out of this franchise.
Certainly a movie worth watching.
