Although the machines believed themselves superior to humans, they had learned not to underestimate them; they maintained a constant vigil for any escape attempts, and the mere presence of a T-600 would deter any; they're programmed to respond to any deviation to the norm, like an empty lift shaft.

(at around 1h 35 mins) When John, Kyle, and Star enter the T-800 manufacturing facility we see several T-800 skulls. The skulls already have the brightly lit red eyes placed into the eye sockets. When the camera cuts in the next picture we see an assembly arm install eyes into the eye sockets of one of the skulls. See more »
Released on Blu-Ray as an R-rated director's cut with about three minutes of extra footage:
When John Connor and company infiltrate the underground base, a sentry robot pops up and is quickly dispatched. This scene was present in the teaser trailer.
Extra dialogue between Connor and Ashdown on the submarine. Ashdown points a gun at Connor's head and says he doesn't believe in prophecy.
Blair bathes in the rain for a moment then sees Marcus looking at her. She covers herself and Marcus turns away.
The scene with the two marauders is more violent. Marcus is actually showing stabbing one of them in the shoulder with a screwdriver, the fistfight with the second guy is longer, and a bloody impact is seen when Blair shoots one of the marauders in the leg.
Longer dialogue from Blair during the campfire scene with Marcus.
The sequence of the man being shot trying to scale the fence at the Skynet processing center is slightly longer.
John Connor's speech to the remaining resistance forces is extended.
The fight between the T-800 and Marcus is a few seconds longer.
Marcus trying to revive John Connor is slightly longer.
I was somewhat hesitant to watch this movie. I didn't want it to be too dark and bleak and depressing. I mean, it was somewhat dark, but there was hope at the end. It's not a mindless action movie. It's definitely an action movie - but a good story I thought. Very entertaining! The story was well done. The characters were great - especially Marcus. You felt what he felt. I think this movie deserves higher than a 6.9 - it's current rating (as of 12-9-09). If you're a fan of Terminator and T-2 - then see this. I did see T3 but was not impressed w/ it and cannot remember much about it (when something doesn't leave an impression, it's usually not that good) - in my humble opinion. I dunno - maybe I need to see it again. I really like Marcus in this movie. I won't give anything away - no spoiler here. Just watch this - you should like it. :-)
