Director James Cameron piles on the hard-edged humour and rollercoaster action in this marvellous sequel to his own 1984 horror fantasy classic. Adrenaline junkies get epic value for money as cyborg Arnold Schwarzenegger comes back from the future to save our world from the T-1000 model, whose liquid metal shape-changing abilities set a new cinematic standard for stunning, computer graphic special effects. Linda Hamilton turns in another terrific performance as the fiercely committed heroine who puts a necessary human face on Cameron's high-decibel mayhem and pyrotechnical bravura.

Plot Summary

James Cameron's science-fiction action thriller sequel to The Terminator, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton. Tormented by the imminent threat of a nuclear holocaust from which intelligent machines will emerge to crush the last vestiges of human existence, Sarah Connor has been institutionalised and separated from her son. Informed of the future, she knows that young John Connor will survive and become leader of the human race. However, the machines of 2029 know it too, and once again they send a cyborg assassin back through time to terminate the potential saviour.
