From Amazon.co.uk

Arguably the finest movie of its kind, Terminator 2: Judgment Day captured Arnold Schwarzenegger at the very apex of his Hollywood celebrity and James Cameron at the peak of his perfectionist directorial powers. Nothing the star did subsequently measured up to his iconic performance here, spouting legendary catchphrases and wielding weaponry with unparalleled cool; and while the director had an even bigger hit with the bloated and sentimental Titanic, few followers of his career would deny that Cameron's true forte has always been sci-fi action. With an incomparably bigger budget than its 1984 precursor, T2 essentially reworks the original scenario with envelope-stretching special effects and simply more, more, more of everything. Yet, for all its scale, T2 remains at heart a classic sci-fi tale: robots running amok, time travel paradoxes and dystopian future worlds are recurrent genre themes, which are here simply revitalised by Cameron's glorious celebration of the mechanistic. From the V-twin roar of a Harley Fat Boy to the metal-crunching Steel Mill finale, the director's fascination with machines is this movie's strongest motif: it's no coincidence that the character with whom the audience identifies most strongly is a robot. Now that impressive but unengaging CGI effects have come to over-dominate sci-fi movies (think of The Phantom Menace), T2's pivotal blending of extraordinary live-action stuntwork and FX looks more and more like it will never be equalled. --Mark Walker

5.0 out of 5 stars Hint 12 Jan 2002
By A Customer
Format:DVD
On disc 1 when you come to the menu, type 82997 (8/29/97 Judgement day) and you get another menu which offers two deleted scenes, the alternate ending and T1000 searching johns room, I liked the alternate ending better than the original. I hope I have helped you get more from your dvd.

5.0 out of 5 stars Belongs in anyones collection 26 Nov 2001
Format:DVD
James Camerons nightmares are again realised for the whole world to see. The continuing saga of a post apocalyptic world is definitely one of his biggest successes.
Some great set pieces (Linda getting chased by a tanker yet again) keep the movie going at break neck speed and the brilliant touch of the lead characters telling the story while on the run means the movie never gets bogged down in trying to explain what is going on.
The extras on the DVD a something else, with animated menus galore and deleted scenes that you wonder if they should have been deleted. Commentarys from all the main cast and the director himself make exploring the movie fun to do.
Definitely one of the all time classic movies and everyone should own.

Terminator 2 - Judgment Day (Skynet Edition) [Blu-ray] [1991] The finest movie of its kind, Terminator 2: Judgment Day captured Arnold Schwarzenegger at the very apex of his Hollywood celebrity and James Cameron at the peak of his perfectionist directorial powers. Nothing the star did subsequently measured up to his iconic performance here, spouting legendary catchphrases and wielding weaponry with unparalleled cool; and while the director had an even bigger hit with the bloated and sentimental Titanic, few followers of his career would deny that Cameron's true forte has always been sci-fi action. T2's pivotal blending of extraordinary live-action stunt work and FX looks more and more like it will never be equalled. The Blu-ray Disc release that is Terminator 2: Judgment Day [Skynet Edition] includes three versions of the film ¡ª first, the theatrical version, second the special edition version featuring 20 minutes or so of additional footage, and finally the third version which a accessible via a special code.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pricey but worth it for Terminator fans 25 Aug 2009
By Mr. Blu
Format:Blu-ray
At the time of purchase I found 17 quid a bit steep for an 18 year old film being released on Blu-Ray for the second time! Nevertheless it has been one of the best buys of this year for my collection. Warned off by negative reviews I did not buy the previous transfer, so I cannot compare, but can confirm that this release has phenomenal sound (6.1 DTS HD Master Audio) and very good picture quality, particularly in close-ups. It contains 3 versions on one disc via seamless branching (why, oh why can't all BDs with multiple cuts have this?). The best version for me is the middle one, the extended but not "ultimate" special extended edition. One addition in the longest cut is footage of the T-1000 searching John's room, take it or leave it. But the most dramatic addition is a different ending which actually makes Terminator 3 and upwards impossible in my view!

But then the "Terminator" franchise has never worried about things like this. T-2 just suddenly announces in a Sarah Connor voice-over at the beginning that 2 Terminators were sent back, not one as stated in the original "Terminator", and no satisfactory explanation is ever given for this change to the story. I guess most people don't care because they liked T-2 so much.

It is a classic 90s action film, and has not dated badly at all. I notice on Amazon that some people have had technical problems with this disc. If you have a Profile 2.0 player and have installed the latest firmware there should be no problems. I found that the disc loaded in reasonable time (given the fancy menu and extras) and I had no problems of any kind. Always having to type in a code to view the long version is quite silly, but I would recommend the second version anyway.

This release could stand to be a bit cheaper I think, but it is undeniably a must for "Terminator" fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Of Course it 1080p, and looks amazing 3 Mar 2008
By Eddie
Format:HD DVD
The other review had it completely wrong. I'm not sure what he was doing. Here are the real specs

DIRECTOR'S CUT VERSION
Anamorphic (16:9 1080p Hi-Def) Widescreen (2.35:1) Version
English 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio
Optional French and Dutch subtitles

This is the same exact HD-DVD as Disc 2 in the French Studio Canal release. All of the menus and specifications of the DVD are identical. The only differences are the cover and the printing on the face of the DVD. The French Studio Canal release does have a 2nd DVD which is the Theatrical Version of the film. If you own HD DVD, this is the movie to get. It never gets old how many times I watch it, ands it looks & sounds better than you've ever seen it before
