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

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Hasta La Vista, Baby!" 13 Feb 2005
Format:DVD
After the enormous success of the first Terminator movie back in 1985, this its 1991 sequel 'Terminator 2: Judgement Day' was going to have a hard time living up to the standards of its predorcessor and indeed the expectations of both the critics and the fans. Whether the first one was better than the second, or the second better than the first, is varies differently from person to person and it really is just a matter of opinion.
Arnold Schwarzenegger returns as the Terminator but this time with a different mission: to protect the thirteen year old John Connor who has once again been targeted for termination by the machines of the future. Their first attempt failed, but will their second? With a new model of terminator, the T1000 that can take the form of any solid object that it touches, and can melt and reform anywhere, how will the old terminator bear up?
Luckily though, he's not on his own as Sarah Connor, John's mum is still around, however she is no longer the cowering heroine that we saw in the first movie, but has sprouted muscles and is now practically an expert in guns and explosives and stuff. The small problem is that she is currently stuck in a mental asylum and John is living with foster parents who have no idea about his destiny.
As soon as you see Arnie rise from the crouching position after he has travled back in time, and you see those big muscles once again, it just makes you want to cheer. So what if he can't act very well, this role is made for him and acting ability has nothing to do with it. While he spoke only seventy four words in the first movie, in this one he has about seven hundred, which means he gets paid $21,429 per word.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'LL BE BACK! 24 July 2004
Format:DVD
Terminator 2: Judgement day is defiantly one of the best films I've ever seen! It's A brilliant film, and I think it's the most success sequel ever!
The top three most successful sequels are Terminator 2, Aliens, and X-men 2, but this film has to be the best!
The film is basically set about ten years after the first film, where Sarah Connor tried to destroy A computer factory, and is put in A mental hospital afterwards, but the machines send T-1000 to terminate John Connor, (Sarah's son).
But the humans send back the Terminator 101 to protect John and defeat T-1000. That's basically what the storyline is about, but also, they try to prevent the war in the future as well!
But there are loads of amazing action scenes, several explosions, and thrilling suspense throughout the entire film!
The graphics for this film are fantastic, and the effects for T-1000 is one of the best things I've ever seen too.
The best parts are when the Terminator battles T-1000 at the end, or when T-1000 constantly chases after The Terminator and the others! But I think the most memorable part was when The Terminator shot T-1000, and it fell into the pool of laver- that was outstanding!
I thought that Terminator 3 was rubbish, and they should of left it at the second one. But overall, the first one is great, the second one is spectacular, but the third one is sadly pance, and I believe, (if they are making two more films) will be no better as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Er, wow! 29 Oct 2001
By A Customer
Format:DVD
This is quite possibly the best thing ever!
The newly-remastered, re-jigged version of T2 comes out with guns-a-blazing. The quality of the THX sound is incredible, and puts my VHS copy to utter shame. The clearer video clarity helps you notice all sorts of things that you didn't notice before (mainly bullet holes - everywhere!). Then there are the special features. Then there are more special features...and then MORE! I was baffled by how they could find so much to put in. Delve into the 'data hub' section of the second disk, and expect bewilderment at the behemoth menus that await. 50 chapters, most containing one or more short video clips, highlighting the production of the film, and all of the small aspects behind it. The sheer effort is breathtaking. And all of this comes in a rather nifty metal tin, which puts the US version to shame. Just a shame some of the region 1 features had been cut, like the ability to watch the full ultimate edition instead of the special edition (the scenes are on disc 2 however), or the ability to watch the film and the script at the same time. But that still doesn't hinder this masterpiece.
Buy this. Trust me.
