Arise Sirs Arnie and Cameron.....,
This review is from: The Terminator Collection: Terminator 1 & 2 (Special Editions) [DVD] (DVD)
Two Words: Absolutely Fantastic.....this double Feature set is really a wonderful testament to the talents of all concerned with Terminator and T2:Judgement Day. James Cameron directs the two movies which his name has been most admiringly accustomed with for the last 19 years.
There is nothing really new in this box if you have seen the Special and Ultimate editions of The terminator and T2:JD respectively....what the distributor has done is put both of them in a box together and re-shelved them, but that doesn't make the set any less fantastic. At less than £18 with Amazon, how can you not want this????? This is two of the greatest action Sci-Fi's ever made!!!!! Lets Look Closer.....
THE TERMINATOR: This 1984 original is a great movie....its full of action; chases, explosions, fights and all kinds of other amazing things. Arnie is really scary as the Terminator (of course in this one he is the BAD GUY), definitely not a guy to mess with....Some great scenes here as well, such as in the Police Station, where the big man kills practically every cop after smashing through the front door with a van.....well, the guy loves to make an entrance.....Excellent supporting cast from Biehn and Linda Hamilton make this a complete joy and a MUST for fans of Arnie, James or the Action genre.
T2:JD: Come on, admit it.....we have all said many times that the Sequel is never as good as the original. Well, T2 is the first I have seen that blows its predecessor right out of the water!!! Terminator is a top class movie, yet this sequel has An excellent Plot, better special effects, better action sequences (especially the scenes with Arnie and the gattling Gun...Man!), and has again a wonderful supporting cast. Furlong is excellent as the young John Connor, and Robert Patrick is UNBELIEVABLY GOOD as the T1000 (this was an act of pure genius!). This movie does a lot to revitalise the original and to further the plot (which later was slightly damaged by T3), and is always going to be regarded as the best action sequel ever to hit the big screen.
And both of them together at this price......I think you would be MAD MAD MAD not to buy it. Enjoy cinematic masterpieces at their mouth-watering best.
