James Cameron could never be called a boring director. He has an eye and a knack for some of the best action moments ever seen on the big screen, and T2 is no exception. Many at the time of this pictures release thought it could never live up to or better the original Terminator, which is regarded as a classic sci-fi film. But the film surpasses the original in many ways, but it remains within the rules set by the first movie. The story is simple enough to grasp, this time there are two Terminators sent through time, one to kill John Conner as a boy, the other to protect him, that's it I think. However it is how the story is told that makes all the difference, and the fact the production broke some important new ground in special effects and sound production that makes it stand out as a classic sci-fi movie, and the birth of serious CGI effects cinema.
