    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.

    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.

    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!!!

    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 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.

    ONE OF THE GREATEST ACTION FILMS OF ALL-TIME!!

    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.

    One of my fav. sci-fi movies

    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.

    Best movie ever!

    This is my all time favorite movie and as soon as I bought a blu ray player, this was bought on the same day. Everything about this movie is stunning, even the acting from Arnold Schwarzenegger. Playing a father like cyborg for a young John Connor, Arnold plays the good guy robot on this sequel, and it's simply the best movie ever made. It revolutionized the way an action movie is presented, and started a newer generation for special effects. And while it has the best action a movie could possibly have, it's also one of the saddest movies I've seen. Terminator 2 is the my favorite movie, and the best from the mind of James Cameron. Highly recommended!

    Look, everyone who collects movies should own a copy of "Terminator 2: Judgment Day" which still holds up as one of the greatest action films ever made and also easily one of the best sequels ever made too. All the Terminator films after this one really pale in comparison so for the more frugal collectors out there you can just buy T2 and the first one and you'll be pretty much set. Also, if you're buying T2 and have to consider the countless versions that have been released over the years I suggest you opt for the Steelbook one as in my opinion Steelbooks are always the nicest editions of movies for the collector.

    I love Terminator 2 and wanted to preorder this last December. Then I found out it was no longer being sold so I bought the 4K HD Ultra Blu-ray. Fast forward seven months or so and I saw the news that the Endoarm Collector's Edition was once again for sale so I made sure to buy it. I noticed it is now sold out. I would recommend this for any Terminator fan who wants the Endoarm as a collectible. If you do not mind having it then the 4K HD Ultra Blu-ray is worth buying too. Love watching it on my LG OLED TV.

    This is one of my favorite additions to my collection. I was a little bummed at first that the endoarm is plastic, but if it was metal it would of course have been significantly more expensive. On the shelf however there's no way of telling whether it's metal or plastic, as it looks amazing. Unfortunately the digital code cannot yet be redeemed in UHD. Lionsgate says to wait for Vudu to add it in UHD (No timeline given), or redeem it now in HD and call later to request an upgrade.

    "Terminator 2," what can I say about this movie? This film is a classic and it started a revolution for a new standard in action movies of its time. This film tops the first Terminator by far, which makes the franchise great. Though some of the acting may seen dull and overplayed, it does not fail the movie itself. Anyways, you are here to see the Terminator in all its glory and the insane action. The story is superb and it ties well into the previous film. Overall, I recommend that that you pick up a copy. "Terminator 2: Judgement Day" is awesome!

    This is the best in the franchise by far. It is awesome in blu-ray, the sound and picture are superb. The amount of extras will overwhelm you. The storyline and special effects are awesome. It is so much better in blu-ray. I watch this movie numerous times in a year so I don't mind the price. Linda Hamilton plays a great Sarah Connor and a young Edward Furlong plays a good young John Connor. The movie has everything great acting, action, and great story. Nothing is better than the Terminator. Pick up your copy today.

    The terminator movies are sci-fi at it's best! Especially the first two movies. I recently purchased this one for a good price at Best Buy. I recommend for anyone who likes sci-fi to watch this and the first one too. I also recommend if you like the series. There is another movie coming out this year. The new movie will take place right after the events in the T2 movie.

    Terminator 2 is easily one of the best movies i have ever seen. The effects used producing this movie are so incredible even to this day. The effects literally to me are so well done they could stand next to every movie out and it was made a good long while ago. The acting job by both arnold and robert patrick in addition to linda hamilton and edward furlong was just outstanding in my opinion. The moments where the action ran high and fast were very well handled by all and i just can't say enough great things about this film.

    This thing is awesome. The only thing I might have done differently would be to maybe use a different material for the outer casing. It scratches too easily and is too reflective under certain lighting. I often display it without the case. Aside from that, it does exactly what it's supposed to do, which is to make me feel like Miles Dyson or young John Connor every time I walk by it. -"We got Skynet by the *bells* now, don't we?"

    My favorite childhood movie now on 4K UHD makes my day. The movie does look crispier and holds a better picture quality but what really makes it worthwhile is the audio. Superb sound effects that makes you feel like you are in the movie theaters. I like how this version makes full use of the rear speakers. Kinda cool when your watching the truck bike scene and you hear bullets flying behind you.

    it's hard to believe this flick is 24 years. you can make the case it's the greatest pure action movie ever made. everyone is at the height of their respective powers—James Cameron, Arnold, Linda Hamilton. even Ed Furlong's incessant whining can't derail this juggernaut. i do love his Public Enemy shirt (a great touch, kudos to whomever came up with that idea). definitely deserves a spot on your shelf, and why not in a sweet looking steelbook to boot?
