    Excellent movie! This review will be more about the quality of the movie than the content. This BD comes with a Digital HD copy through VUDU or Fandango. I set it up with Vudu because it’s easier for me. As for the disc itself, it came exactly as described and shrink wrapped so I knew it was new. I thoroughly inspected the print on the front and back covers. Everything was pristine. I had ordered this same movie from a different source and you could immediately tell by the back cover that someone printed it from their computer and then the disc looked copied. Not in this case. This is definitely a legitimate, remastered BD. The picture and sound quality are excellent. This disc comes with both the Unrated Special Edition and the theatrical version. I prefer the theatrical version but the extended version is just as good in quality...just has some sequences that don’t fit in my head. This movie was state of the art in 1991 and being remastered on Blu-Ray is even better. A must have for any Terminator fan, or even just action fans. FYI, they sell Terminator movies in sets (Anthology or Quadrilogy). Don’t buy those!!! The quality is terrible. I bought both and immediately returned them after trying each disc. The discs worked but the sound and picture quality was terrible. I bought it like that because the price was awesome for 4 movies (Genisys) wasn’t included. Buy them individually. The quality is so much better. You won’t regret it and the prices individually are still very reasonable for BD.

    A Definite Must for Steelbook Collectors!

    The price for the T-2 Steelbook has been so low that I had to add it to my "Terminator Collection." The Steelbook design was as awesome as the metal cover limited edition T-2 "Extreme DVD" that they sold two decades ago (lower right corner in the photo), before Steelbooks ever existed. And don't let anybody fool you; I bought the "Terminator Genisys" Steelbook (upper left corner of pic) for the same price as the plastic blu-ray, and in addition to an hour of extras, our ex-Governor definitely hit the gym before filming and was as tough without CGI as he's ever been. And if you watch the extras, you'll hear how nice and down-to-earth he was when his co-stars were nervous to be working with the REAL "Terminator." Throughout the filming, he was as gracious with the new talent as he was with the guys and gals working out at Gold's Venice (Beach) back in the day, even after winning his record breaking bodybuilding championships and becoming a millionaire/movie star. People can criticize his accent and his acting, but BUY T-5 and you'll cheer him on, especially when they create a CGI version of Arnold from T-1 by using a young bodybuilder with the same upper body Arnold had in film #1, and our senior citizen kicks the younger CGI Arnold's butt!!! You gotta love it when they keep these guys out of "The Expendables" and give us more "Rambo," "Rocky/Creed," and HOPEFULLY "Terminator 6"! This "Judgement Day" Steelbook presentation was explosive with 1080P high Def picture and a 6.1 DTS-HD audio.

    Excellent steelbook and decent bluray of classic

    There's not much I can say about T2 other than it's arguably the greatest action film of all-time, and certainly on the short list of them. The steelbook is pretty rad, built around the classic image of flames and a T-800 in the center of them. There is NO inner-artwork on this steelbook, which will certainly disappoint some. However on this film, being the villain is the liquid metal T-1000, it doesn't feel as off as it would on another title. You can of course add your own artwork if you're into that sort of thing. The blu-ray itself? A bit of a mixed bag. Back in the early 2000's T2 was given a 2K telecine scan for the "Extreme Edition" DVD, and that scan has been used for all T2 releases since. So the scan and resolution quality are a bit dated compared to more recent, say, 4K ARRISCAN's, and you can just compare it to the recent The Terminator blu-ray remaster that came out to see the difference. This particular edition also adds on too much DNR (digital noise reduction done in post) to the image for my taste, and the menu is a bit over complicated. That being said the image is certainly serviceable (until Cameron releases the 4K remaster - which is done) and the lossless 5.1 audio is as crisp and crackling as ever. The bonus material is pretty vast, though as I said, can be a little difficult navigating. Overall? For a T2 fan or a fan of steelbooks, this is recommended until a better T2 remaster services.

    One of the Gretest Films now in 4k

    I never cancelled my order and waited over a year to finally get this special ediion T2. One of the gretest Film now released in 4K, the image look so good they look fake LOL. This remake is a must have specially this Endo Arm edition only 6k where made. They are signed by James Cameron and also numbered. The Endo Arm is not small at all and it looks good, it is very light as it was made out of plastic, I wish it was in polish metal. The film comes in a UltraHD case with 2 disc, one 4k and the other BD. It really sucks they didn't released the same as the internatioal version wich came with all the versions of T2 in 4 Disc including the 3D version, and it was released on time. As a movie collector this definetly fits well, I also have the 3D version which obtained from Uk and it looks fantastic. If you can get your hand in one of this do it, it may worth something in the near future plus that Endo Arm gets people attention.

    This is literally a REAL 4K MOVIE in every way! Gladiator, Patriot, and every other movie that was made in the 90's do not compare or even come close to comparing to the Terminator 2 graphics in 4k HDR. The transfer of the movie from the big screen, to DVD, then from Blu-ray disc was impeccable. To be honest about the graphics, I would put it up against any action movie that would come out today. There was not any static at all throughout the entire movie and all of the pictures were nice and vibrant! I am Just like most of my viewers for being hesitant for purchasing older movies that have been released in 4k due to the static, which makes the movies look like they are on VHS , or DVD. I feel like I have been burnt a few times before with buying 4K HDR movies and I just don't want to waste my money anymore! THANKFULLY, Terminator 2 in 4k is the exception of being an older movie that looks fantastic. I will be bragging for a long time about this movies graphics.

    Terminator 2: Judgement Day is my favorite film of all time. I don't have anything against the film whatsoever. First, we were brought the Ultimate Edition which added a few parts to the film and extended the story. Those scenes should've been left in the movie because every deleted scene makes sense! Then the Extreme DVD was brought in, giving us the Ultimate Edition in a better audio and visual quality. Then came in this Blu-Ray edition steelbook that catched my eye. This is by far my second favorite edition the first being the Extreme DVD. I absolutely adore the quality of this Blu-Ray edition. The only complaint is the sound. Some of the sounds don't bump my subwoofers as hard like the Ultimate or Extreme editions. When a T-800 smashes a skull, it doesn't bump hard. But other than that you will be able to see and hear everything clearly with this edition. This is a perfect item for collector's. I have 14 copies of this film and I will be buying another copy soon.

    This was one of my most favorite movies growing up. Even when they announce the special edition years ago back on DVD. And when I saw that they were releasing it for 4K I immediately jumped on the pre-order. So today I started watching it and found out that 4K disk is just the theatrical edition and not the special edition. To compare the difference between the regular and special edition is that the special edition has additional scenes in the movie. Note: The Blu-ray has 3 different versions of the movie, Theatrical Version, Special Edition Version, Extended Special Edition Version. The time difference between each version is TV - 2h 17m, SEV - 2h 33m, ESEV - 2h 35m.

    T-2 On Blu-Ray

    Posted
    Blindspot

    When my girlfriend got me this for Christmas, the first thing that went through my head was 'alright- T2 on Bluray!' After less than an hour into the movie though, my feelings had changed. Don't get me wrong- this is still one of the most awesome movies of all time, but after seeing the extended edition on DVD, I was disappointed to see all those deleted scenes left out of the movie all over again! I really thought that would at least be an option, given the capacity Bluray disks, but I guess not! I mean, when you pick up new copies of Aliens, its still got that extra 27 min of footage in there- its just a staple anymore! Why they would choose to do this to T2's Bluray debut is beyond me!? Left out footage aside, I can agree that while this may be an older movie, there was still some left to be desired on the conversion to high-def. I won't say it looks as bad as DVD, but it certainly doesn't look as good as, say CRANK or something more recent. Even if you don't already have a copy of Terminator 2, I'd say go ahead and wait for the extended version- it will be money better spent!

    Cybernetic Organism Over Metal Endo-Skeleton in 4k

    One of my all time favorite movies, about how the human race creates its own demise with the advent of A.I. The A.I. turns on its creators and wants to destroy us. There is one though that leads us through the revolution against the machines... John Connor. This movie is about when he s a young child about 12 and they sent a terminator through time from the future where machines are wiping out the human existence. So John Connor himself in the future sends his own terminator to protect himself in the past. Awesome movie and now in UHD 4k the best quality and the best way to watch this movie at home. Most definite purchase. I can never get tired of this movie. And here at Best Buy they have it at the best price you can get it at and sometimes there are sales. You have to get this! The movie never looked so good. I LOVE it!!! Best UHD 4k release this year!!!

    Received this today but my review is more about the collectible End Arm that comes with the 4K movie. Okay so the collectible piece does look nice;However, the Terminator arm while it looks nice it is made out of very cheap plastic. For the price I was hoping they would have done a higher grade of plastic like a hard premium PVC but no. As a display piece it is fine but in hand it really comes off very cheaply made. And the James Camron signature is of course a printed copy of his signature printed on a sticker under neath the base. I say overall this could have been easily prices for maybe about 60 to 80.00 but not much more. This is going back to the store just cannot justify the 134+ tax for it- even with the movies that are included.

    Must Own for Terminator and casual movie fans!

    Terminator 2: Judgment Day is one of my favorite movies I ever seen and to own it in this edition has never been sweeter. Despite the lack of red box cover much like the recent blu ray release of The Terminator, this is hardly a complaint because this surpasses the Skynet Edition for T2. Its no surprise that this film looks and sounds perfect in this BluRay transfer and unlike the picture-in-picture feature from the Skynet Edition which was the only access to the film's behind-the-scenes featurettes, hardcore fans and consumers who love to watch movies can watch the special features from the main menu. Also, this film is complete with a redemption code of the Digital Ultraviolet (UV) copy of T2 that you can take anywhere and on any device. I shouldn't stress this enough so I highly recommend this to anyone who hasn't own a copy of this movie. It's worth every dime!

    I own fifteen billion copies of Terminator 2. I have at least four different DVD releases, two blu-ray releases and now the 4k Ultra HD release. Did this movie need a 4K release? Not really. The blu-ray versions looked great. Does this show off HDR and other fancy features on your TV? Eh... I've seen better. Does the audio sound good? I don't hear much difference between this and the blu-ray on my 7.1 Pioneer Elite system. Anyway, if you're a fan, you'll get this and continue to purchase new versions when they come out as I do. T2 is a true classic for 80s kids and it's one of my favorite movies of all time.

    I didn't think that it would look as great as it does up converted/remastered to 4K, but my gosh that's an understatement to say the least. This thing is mind blowing with all of the details you see. It makes me think, "what was I watching this on before, in the 80's and 90's?" You couldn't see any of this detail back then. Some movies that were produced in the late 90's and early-mid 2000's that have been remastered doesn't even have this quality. So I'm not sure what went wrong there, lol. If you like Terminator or just want to add great quality action 4K movies to your collection, I say grab it. On sale of course. For comparison we have the Sony X900E and the Sony HT-NT5 sound bar with surround sound.

    I heard this wasn’t a great 4K transfer for this film that had heavy use of DNR. However, I was willing to take the plunge for the $7.99 Black Friday sale being Terminator 2 is such a great film. I have to say, the DNR use doesn’t bother me much. I’m happy with my decision to pick it up in 4K at the $7.99 price point. However, if you do not like the use of heavy DNR and like the grainy look on old films, you may not want to take the plunge on this 4K at the normal price point. I can’t speak for the audio because I only have a 2.1 set up (soundbar and a subwoofer). All that being said, the movie in itself is an excellent film.

    Set 10 years after the first Terminator, future savior of humanity John Connor (Edward Furlong) one day finds himself and his institutionalized mom Sarah (Linda Hamilton again) targeted by the unstoppable shape-shifting T-1000 (Robert Patrick) who has been sent back in time to finish the job the first Terminator failed. Their only hope lies with another reprogrammed Terminator (Arnold Schwarzenegger) sent to protect them. Arnold & Linda are both great, but Patrick steals the show, creating a new unique villain without falling into the trap of becoming an Arnold-knockoff (which certainly would've occurred with a lesser actor in the role). The suspense & SFX are notches above those from the first film. Unfortunately, the same can't be said for the script, which falls into the time travel plotholes which the first film cleverly managed to avoid.

    The best Terminator Movie T2

    Here goes the movie which provides the argument that not all sequels are bad, to include they can also surpass the original, and in a very big way. Directed by James Cameron, Terminator 2 is the direct sequel to the original Terminator, and although the film utilizes the exact same chase formula, and the fight for survival against a very powerful enemy, Cameron was able to pull off being original as well as innovative. This film took place at a time when he was actually serious about telling a story that combined both substance and style. For a film that came out back in 1991, T2 holds up amazingly well in this day and age, providing an ample amount of action with incredible special effects, and when looking at the budget to make this movie, it well better hold up some 20 years later.

    Looks VERY NICE in 4k. What sets this edition apparent from all the other? well, this version was initially for the latest 3d theater conversion, so the color filter is noticeably different in some scenes. Also, in previous editions, scenes w/ Arnold on the motorcyle/various stunts, it can been seen as his stunt double. In this new version, the noticeable double is digitally replaced/ altered to look more like Arnold. Go online and google side by sides... for someone that's never seen T@, this won't bug them and they may not even notice. Long time fans that grew up on repeat viewings will spot these changes right away.

    This is a rare situation where the sequel is (what I believe) better than the original. I think what really did it for me was the character development of John Connor, I mean in the first movie all you hear about is this prodigy child. Here we get to see John Connor enter the war and how quickly he matures and understands his role in saving humanity. The bad guy is a step up from Arnold and is really impressive. My favorite scene is the canal scene. I didn't have this movie on dvd and what made it an easy decision was the the better picture quality and audio quality (dts-hd master audio). There are way more extras than what anyone needs, so if you are into that by all means go at it.

    I bought this on August 29th because it was Judgment Day and I wanted to get Terminator 2 in hi-def. It had a list of extras on the back, but I admit I did not read them thoroughly in the store. It includes the theatrical and special editions, but does not have as an option the two extra scenes from the special edition DVD (the alternate future and the T1000 in John's room). It looks good, but be warned, this is not a comprehensive T2 package. Also, I had difficulty in redeeming the digital copy: It only gave me standard definition until I emailed customer service at my digital video retailer of choice. In short, there are a few T2 blu ray releases. Do some homework before deciding which one is right for you.

    Great movie, disappointing endoarm

    Pre-ordered mine when it first went up. Waited over a year for the product. Pros: Movie is great, esp the 4k edition. Wish it was the extended but thats fine. Either way movie picture and sound are best. Cons: The "endoarm". For the price of this item, i was expecting something made of metal or some kind of metal. But its made completly of plastic. You cant even bend the fingers or anything. Would have been cooler if was metal and moveable but atlast it wasnt. Shame, i got a low number on the version. Prob going to return, 150+ for a plastic arm seems a bit expensive
