Sex & Nudity

  • Like in the other films Terminators appear naked when they first travel back to the past
  • One scene shows a naked woman falling to the ground and getting her bearings. Her butt is shown at least twice. The sides of her breasts are shown in a medium shot that last roughly five seconds.
  • Couple kiss aka make out

Violence & Gore

  • The antagonist ruthlessly pursues a young woman with the intent to kill her. He kills many, many people that try to get in his way.
  • More than a dozen military personnel are stabbed and slashed with knives that act as an extension of the antagonist's arms. Nothing too disturbing is shown, but the series of attacks is somewhat bloody. All those who directly engage him are presumably killed. Innocent people are also in danger throughout.
  • Five or six soldiers try to subdue the villain, but he violently cuts himself free. They are all presumably killed, but the act is so brief that it's hard to discern if anyone survives.
  • Two people are fatally stabbed by someone who, until they actually carry out the attack, seems to be a random passerby. Blood is shown pouring from the wounds. Brief.
  • A lot of fistfights and beatings with blunt/sharp weapons. One sees someone using a sledgehammer, and later that same person utilises a metal chain. This is usually to fend off the villain, but whenever he gets damaged by them it is bloodless.
  • The protagonists fight the villain inside a falling plane, and the Terminator punches the villain several times, but it eats the flesh off of his hand. The two continue to struggle, with the villain being shot, and some other characters getting injured, and the Terminator manages to pin it to the wall and blow open the back of the plane with its gun.

Profanity

  • On par with the second film, and more profane than the three in-between entries. Uses of shit, ass/asshole, bitch, and occasional F words. A few of the uses of the F word are used angrily, and in conjunction with 'mother.'
  • 15 uses the F-word including twice from the opening T2 footage, and two used, as aforementioned, in conjunction with 'mother'.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Some beer drinking.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Two people are fatally stabbed by someone who, until they actually carry out the attack, seems to be a random passerby. Blood is shown pouring from the wounds. Brief.
