A seemingly indestructible robot is sent from 2029 to 1984 to assassinate a young waitress, whose unborn son will lead humanity in a war against sentient machines, while a human soldier from the same war is sent to protect her at all costs.
Luke Skywalker joins forces with a Jedi Knight, a cocky pilot, a Wookiee and two droids to save the galaxy from the Empire's world-destroying battle station, while also attempting to rescue Princess Leia from the mysterious Darth Vader.
A cybernetic warrior from a post-apocalyptic future travels back in time to protect a 25-year old drifter and his future wife from a most advanced robotic assassin and to ensure they both survive a nuclear attack.
Over 10 years have passed since the first robot called The Terminator tried to kill Sarah Connor and her unborn son, John. John Connor, who will become the future leader of the human resistance against the Machines, is now a healthy young boy. However, another Terminator, called the T-1000, is sent back through time by the supercomputer Skynet. This new Terminator is more advanced and more powerful than its predecessor and its mission is to kill John Connor when he's still a child. However, Sarah and John do not have to face the threat of the T-1000 alone. Another Terminator (identical to the same model that tried and failed to kill Sarah Conner in 1984) is also sent back through time. This Terminator has been reprogrammed by the future Resistance on the orders of adult John. This Terminator's mission is to protect John and Sarah Connor at all costs. The battle for tomorrow has begun.Written by
Local residents in Lakeview Terrace held a protest outside the Medical Center when it was dressed up to be the Pescadero State Hospital for the Criminally Insane. They quickly realized it was in fact only a film set. See more »
(at around 1h 9 mins) When the Terminator first holds the Minigun, he gives a smile to John, this is exactly the type of emotion he doesn't have. However it could be taken as a sign of his learning to imitate humans. See more »

In the storyboards section on the Ultimate Edition DVD, there is evidence of an early scripted scene. Set right in the beginning of the movie, it shows various battle scenes of the war until in one of them, a terminator who is aiming his gun at a soldier suddenly shuts down (we see the red glow in his eye fading out), as do the others and the several hoverships and tanks. This early draft actually described soldiers penetrating skynet and destroying it, finding the terminator factory with many terminators in both skeleton and disguised form (Arnold's), and eventually sending both Kyle Reese and the reprogammed T-800 (good Arnold) back to the past.

This superb sequel surpasses the excellent original in every department and quite simply you won't see a better action film. Set 15 years after the original Arnie may return as the good Terminator trying to protect John Connor but he's a redundant piece of scrap metal compared to the T-1000.
The opening hour and the last half hour is absolutely breathtaking with action sequences that still remain unsurpassed. Their's also a wonderful piece of storytelling 3/4 of the way through where Dyson relises the terrifying consequences of the project he's neglecting his family for.
The performances are memorable particularly Linda Hamilton's Sara Connor and simply put, they'll never make a better action film.
