Over 10 years have passed since the first machine called The Terminator tried to kill Sarah Connor and her unborn son, John. The man 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, in the Internet 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 Connor in 1984) is also sent back through time to protect them. Now, the battle for tomorrow has begun.Written by
[1:40:00] Stunt pilot Charles A. Tamburro, who plays the unfortunate pilot who is forced to jump off his helicopter by the T-1000, also performed the stunt whereby the helicopter flies under an overpass in the final chase scene.

The Ultimate Edition DVD accidentally omits part of the theatrical version: the first 23 seconds of Sarah's dream-recounting tape, which is all in a TV closeup.

The original USA DVD from 1997 included the correct theatrical version as well. See more »
