Terminator 2 (Arnold Schwarzeneggar) Review | Action Movie Anatomy

Action Movie Anatomy hosts Ben Bateman and Andrew Ghai break down Terminator 2 getting ready for the Terminator Genisys premiere! Theme song by NikoMakaris.com Terminator 2: Judgment Day (also referred to as simply Terminator 2 or T2) is a 1991 American science fiction actionfilm co-written, produced and directed by James Cameron. The film stars Arnold Schwarzenegger, Linda Hamilton, Robert Patrick and Edward Furlong. It is the second installment of the Terminator franchise and the sequel to the 1984 film The Terminator. Terminator 2 follows Sarah Connor (Hamilton) and her ten-year-old son John (Furlong) as they are pursued by a new, more advanced Terminator, the liquid metal, shapeshifting T-1000 (Patrick), sent back in time to kill John Connor and prevent him from becoming the leader of the human resistance. A second, less advanced Terminator (Schwarzenegger) is also sent back in time to protect John. After a troubled pre-production characterized by legal disputes, Mario Kassar of Carolco Pictures emerged with the franchise’s property rights in early 1990. This paved the way for the completion of the screenplay by a Cameron-led production team, and the October 1990 start of a shortened 186-day filming schedule. The production of Terminator 2required an unprecedented budget of more than $94 million, much of which was spent on filming and special effects. The film was released on July 3, 1991, in time for the U.S. Fourth of July weekend. The film’s visual effects saw breakthroughs in computer-generated imagery, including the first use of natural human motionfor a computer-generated character and the first partially computer-generated main character.[4] Terminator 2 was a box office and critical success and influenced popular culture, especially the use of visual effects in films.[5] It received many accolades, including four Academy Awards for Best Sound Editing, Best Sound Mixing, Best Makeup, and Best Visual Effects.[6] The highest-grossing film of 1991, Terminator 2 has since been ranked by several publications such as theAmerican Film Institute as one of the greatest action films, science fiction films and sequels of all time.
