Terminator 2: Judgment Day / Reviews

Flicks, Daniel Rutledge

The greatest action movie of the '90s returns to cinemas and I am a very happy man. It's a blessing and a gift to experience James Cameron's masterpiece on the big screen once more, with a fresh paint job that modernises a classic without removing one iota of charm. Time has been kind to the iconic set pieces and the extra dimension achieves the unthinkable - it improves them, albeit in an understated way. The most pronounced bit of 3D is in the opening credits, with the Terminator's face coming at you out of the flames. Elsewhere, it's simply a delicate enhancement of a well known tour de force.

Arnold Schwarzenegger is more comfortable and assured here than the first time around, reprising a role so perfectly suited to the voice and physique that have established him as a larger-than-life film persona.

Mr. Cameron has made a swift, exciting special-effects epic that thoroughly justifies its vast expense and greatly improves upon the first film's potent but rudimentary visual style.

Cameron has done an honourable and undoubtedly skilful job of tailoring his new film to the tastes of the times without too much sloppy compromise. He's made a science fiction film with verve, imagination and even a little wit.

It proves that crackingly fast entertainment doesn't have to be mindless, and it manages to do so, with an endearingly cheeky sense of humour.

It's Cameron's show; he's the reigning king of movie pow, with dark wit and a poet's eye for mayhem. T2 cost a reported $100 million, and you can actually see where the money went.

Nobody, I think, will complain that it doesn't have enough action.

More elaborate than the original, but just as shrewdly put together, it cleverly combines the most successful elements of its predecessor with a number of new twists (would you believe a kinder, gentler Terminator?) to produce on e hell of a wild ride.

It's less satisfying than the more idea-driven original, but this is still top-flight kick-ass entertainment.
