Nice night for a walk aye?
22 March 2001 | by (mid_uk) – See all my reviews

James Cameron is no doubt, one of the finest directors of all time!. In this "making" featurette we get an insight into how he achieved his visionary masterpiece. In my mind he is probably one of the only directors that can reveal Arnies true colours!.

We also get to view fan favourites Michael Biehn and Lance Henriksen. Theres an interview with the big man, Mr Schwarzenegger, And oh yeah, lets not forget everybodys favourite:- Bill Paxton.
