    Synopsis


    Terminator 2: Judgment Day
    In this sequel to the sci-fi action thriller that made him and star Arnold Schwarzenegger A-list Hollywood names, co-writer/director James Cameron upped the ante by employing a more sweeping story line and cutting-edge special effects. Linda Hamilton returns as Sarah Connor, now a single mother to rebellious teen John Connor (Edward Furlong). Having been informed by a time-traveling soldier in the first film that John will one day grow up to become humanity's savior from a computer-controlled Armageddon, Sarah has responded by becoming a muscle-bound she-warrior bent on educating him in survival tactics and battle strategies. Unfortunately, her ranting about humankind's future has landed her in an insane asylum and John in foster care. When a new and improved Terminator android called the T-1000 (Robert Patrick) arrives in 1995 to eliminate John, an older model T-800 (Schwarzenegger) is also sent from the future to protect the boy. The T-1000, however, has the ability to morph itself into any shape it desires, allowing it chameleon-like powers and near indestructibility. The T-800, John, and Sarah must learn to trust each other in order to stay one step ahead of the T-1000, and their mission to save humanity eventually leads them to Miles Dyson (Joe Morton), the scientist whose research will help bring about Skynet and the Terminators. Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991), which won four Oscars in technical categories for its groundbreaking effects, was followed by a short sequel filmed exclusively as an attraction for theme parks, Terminator 2: 3-D Battle Across Time (1996). ~ Karl Williams, Rovi

      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.

      I could not believe the 4K graphics!

      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.

      Epic enhancement for an Epic Film!

      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.

      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!!!

      Great Movie. One Small Problem

      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.

      This review is for the Endo Arm

      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.

      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!
