      self awakening

      This film is admittedly better than the first film of the sequel, in this one, the T-800 has transformed from a tough villain in the first step to the role of protecting John Connor and Sarah Conner against the more powerful new ones. Generation robot T-1000. Seven years later, Cameron, whether it is the control of the plot or the use of computer CG special effects technology, is more sophisticated and mature. Whether it is a chase on the road or a fire confrontation with the...

      Terminator 2: Judgment Day

      In addition to the hot fight scenes, the plot is very rigorous. The scientists who studied the Terminator finally came to their senses. T800's self-sacrifice was a profound analysis of human nature. The impact of traveling through time and space on the future, the T800 ultrasonic camouflage, liquid nitrogen freezing, the robot's previous battle and even backup power, make it a qualified sci-fi work. Cameron originally prepared two other endings for the movie, one ending after the liquid...

      The pinnacle of Arnold and Edward

      2 and a half hours is a bit long. 2 hours is fine. I have seen quite a few of them back then, and the only thing I remember is the last high-temperature solution.

      The character that likes 2 Riano is the exact opposite of 1. If you watch a movie without seeing any plot information, there will be a strong sense of contrast. But Arnold acted a little silly in the second half, turning from a cool futuristic killer to a childish robot.

      The director of the mental hospital witnesses two...

      The Devil's Terminator, this second installment is the pinnacle of the series

      I saw this when I was in elementary school, but didn't know its name. Later, I knew that this was called the Terminator, and I was very fortunate to see the pinnacle of this Terminator. This one can be said to be perfect, but after watching the details of a few highlights today, I found two small loopholes. I prefer to call the actors by their first names, so I call them directly. The first is in the hospital detention center, when Robert Patrick chased the three Schwarzenegger who escaped...

      just a movie review

      I watched this movie before, I watched it when I was a kid, and now I watch it again and I think it's really a good movie

      I don’t need to talk about Schwarzenegger, the hero of this movie. I just feel that the liquid robot actor played very well. He interpreted the role very well, with a cold face and neat skills. You can't see any information in his eyes. He is not afraid, fanatical, impatient, and has no emotions. The more you look at him, the more terrifying you will be.

      At that time, I remembered, "Why can't that bad guy die?" Now I see why this film has always been unforgettable. There are not many precedents that have successfully surpassed the first film. In the compact and no-urinary rhythm, there are also concerns about man, machine and human destiny. Thinking about it, and the connection in time and space in the two episodes, and more importantly, the friendship between the Terminator and the boy is also warm, Schwarzenegger is laughing when he learns...

      The police and the public are here to play cute. After many years, I am still impressed by the mercury robot +1, so I found the full version and saw that there are two endings, although they are similar. If a machine can learn the value of human life. Maybe we can...

      [Classic Rewatch] There are few sequel movies that can surpass the previous one, and it is also a well-deserved sci-fi action classic in film history. 30 years later, the computer stunts in the film are not inferior, especially the silver robot T-1000, the villain who makes the audience nervous. The plot between him and the male protagonist and the mother and son triggered a gripping dramatic tension. It was not a one-off life-and-death battle, but an escalating cat-and-mouse game. However,...

This time, the robot master sent the most advanced T-1000 Terminator to return to the childhood of John Connor ( Edward Fran ) , preparing to kill John and make the human...

    Behind the scenes

    Edward Furlong was selected from hundreds of candidates. He was discovered by the casting director while waiting in line to enter a club.
    A total of more than one million feet of film was shot and developed, and the last version seen was far less than 1% of it.
    When the film was filmed, a lady walked into the motorcycle rider bar, thinking it was a real bar, completely ignoring the truck and the camera carrying the scenery. When she saw...

    Piercing lens

    Arnold went to the bar to "borrow" clothes, and was scalded with a cigarette butt on his chest by a billiard player. In the next shot, the scar was gone. T800 is not T1000. It has no repair function. He was beaten with wounds at the end of the film, and he didn't grow well by himself.
    Before John came out, his adoptive mother picked up the newspaper on the lawn at the door, because a sprinkler just passed by and the newspaper was wet....

    Evaluation action

    The film has a lot of things worth paying attention to, and that is its music. This unique style of music is contrary to the traditional magnificent symphony. It boldly uses metallic and futuristic electronic synthesizer music, sharp sound and heavy impact. The sound heralds the crisis, and it fits perfectly with the film. "Terminator 2" fully surpassed the previous work, pushing this series to the pinnacle.  (Sina Entertainment...

    Movie quotes

    • T-1000: Are you the legal guardian of John Connor?

      Todd Voight: That's right, Officer. What's he done now?

      T-1000: Could I speak with him please?

      Janelle Voight: You could if he were here. He just took off on his bike. So, he could be anywhere.

      T-1000: Do you have a photograph of John?

      Janelle Voight: Yeah, sure, hold on.

      Todd Voight: Could you tell me what this is about?

      T-1000: Just need to ask him a few questions.

      [Janelle gives the photo to T-1000]

      T-1000: He's a good looking boy. Do you mind if I keep this picture?

      Janelle Voight: No, go on. There was a guy here this morning looking for him, too.

      Todd Voight: Yeah, a big guy on a bike. Does that got something to do with this?

      T-1000: No, I wouldn't worry about him. Thanks for your cooperation.

    • John Connor: We've got company.

      Miles Dyson: Police?

      Sarah Connor: How many?

      John Connor: All of 'em, I think.

    • [from Extended Special Edition ending]

      Sarah Connor: [speaks into her recorder] August 29, 1997, came and went. Nothing much happened. Michael Jackson turned 40. There was no Judgment Day. People went to work as they always do. Laughed, complained, watched TV, made love. I wanted to run to through the street yelling to grab them all and say, "Every day from this day on is a gift. Use it well." Instead, I got drunk. That was 30 years ago. But the dark future which never came still exists for me. And it always will, like the traces of a dream. John fights the way differently than it was foretold. Here, on the battlefield of the Senate his weapons are common sense and hope.

      Sarah's Granddaughter: [runs up to Sarah] Tie me, Grandma. Tie me!

      Sarah Connor: How's that?

      Sarah's Granddaughter: Thank you, Grandma.

      Sarah Connor: The luxury of hope was given to me by the Terminator. Because if a machine can learn the value of human life, maybe we can too.
