Since the beliefs that parents want to instill in their children can vary greatly, we ask that, instead of adding your personal opinions about what is right or wrong in a film, you use this feature to help parents make informed viewing decisions by describing the facts of relevant scenes in the title for each one of the different categories: Sex and Nudity, Violence and Gore, Profanity, Alcohol/Drugs/Smoking, and Frightening/Intense Scenes.

Sex & Nudity


When the machines are sent through time, they are sent naked. This means that at the beginning, the T-101 is shown nude breifly, but only his chest, back, and his butt are shown. Robert Patrick's character is also shown nude and you can see his butt very briefly and his genitals are partially visible as he crouches down.

A man walks into a bar nude (no nudity shown). A couple of ladies look him up and down.

For two whole scenes, Sarah's nipples can be seen through her white shirt. They can also be seen shortly in another scene, but less obvious due to the action going on which most of the audience will be focusing on instead.

A guard at a mental institute licks Sarah Connor's face while she is restrained to a bed, presumably to see if she is awake.

Sarah is seen topless as the terminator stitches up a cut on her back, but only her back is shown.

The T-1000 changes into a woman with her shirt undone, very briefly revealing a breast, for around a second.

Violence & Gore


At the beginning, many soldiers are shot by machines. (not graphic)

There is a bar fight at the beginning. A man is burned on an oven but isn't harmed much, another is stabbed, and many bones are broken.

A man kills a police officer and takes his clothes and his car.

Two men shoot at each other in a hallway.

A truck explodes with a man in it. But the man melts into mercury and forms back into his human form.

A woman's arm transforms into a sword-like weapon and stabs a man through a milk carton and through his mouth. She pulls it out and blood spurts.

The T-1000 kills a dog and rips off it's collar, blood is seen on the collar.

An officer is stabbed in the eye by the T-1000.

A guard at a mental institute is hit on the face by a broom that was broken in half, blood spurts.

Sarah sneaks up on a man and a guard and repeatedly whacks the guard with a baton before breaking the man's arm with it and hitting him on the back of the knees, so he falls.

Sarah Connor puts a syringe in his neck that is filled with poison. She does not empty the poison into him though.

T-101 shoots an officer twice in his legs. Impact shots are seen and he screams in pain.

When a group of male nurses hold Sarah down and attempt to inject her, the Terminator grabs one man and throws him into a window, smashing it. He then picks up another and throws him through a glass door. A third man runs at him with his baton and tries to hit him but the Terminator hits him in the stomach with his rifle and throws him away - he hits a wall very hard and bounces off.

Sarah dreams about a nuclear attack and a large nuclear weapon detonates over a city. We see many children and their mothers burning and screaming. Sarah then catches on fire and screams horribly. Later, when the blast comes, the carbonized bodies of the women and children disintegrate and Sarah screams as her flesh is ripped off.

T-101 cuts the skin off his arm and rips it away to reveal his metal skeleton. Fairly bloody.

At Cyberdyne, Dyson is shot several times with blood spurts.

Sarah Connor is shot in the thigh.

T-1000 gets frozen by liquid nitrogen and shattered by a bullet.

T-101 and T-1000 get in an intense fight. T-1000 terminates T-101. T-101 then re-programs himself and comes back.

T-1000 stabs Sarah Connor in the shoulder. She screams in pain.

T-101 terminates T-1000 by shooting him until he falls into hot lava.

You can see T-101's red eye, and the metal skeleton under his skin after the big fight scenes.

T-101 lowers himself into the hot lava.

There's strong realistic violence throughout the film sometimes towards innocent people only doing their job.



16 uses of very strong language (eg. 'fuck') sometimes used aggressively, 23 uses of 'shit', and numerous uses of milder profanities such as 'damn', 'hell', 'ass', 'bastard', 'dick', 'bitch', etc.


A man in a bar is smoking a cigar.

Men force Sarah Connor to take her meds.

Sarah Connor is shown smoking a cigarette in a couple scenes.

Some intense (and often one-sided) fights.

The mouth-stabbing scene may frighten some.

Sarah dreams the world ends and a bomb comes down and blows up. Everything catches on fire. Sarah Connor catches on fire and screams in pain. The scene is longer and more emotional in home video releases. This includes Kyle (who dies in the first movie) appearing in Sarah's dream. He warns Sarah of the danger that John and humanity face.

Two guards force a woman in a mental institute to take her meds by beating and shocking her.

A dog is killed, which may upset some animal lovers.

The terminators might be frightening to younger viewers.

A nuclear explosion dream sequence is very intense, since it realistically portrays a nuclear blast. Children are burned by the blast, a woman clutches at a fence and screams shrilly as she burns. The burnt people the disintegrate

At the end of the main titles (at the start) the terminator's face could be frightening to a few viewers.

T-101 cuts the skin off his arm and rips it away to show Dyson his metallic arm. Blood and flesh is on his metal arm.

This film contains strong violence, language, and intense scenes. This movie has nothing harmful for teens 15+, and is reccommended for 13+
