Product Description

Amazon.ca

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

Special Features

Upon its 2000 release, this two-disc set could have been lauded as the most extensive DVD ever produced. Not that the vast materials presented here are new; many were released previously on DVD and laserdisc. The important additions are an impressive DTS and Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtrack along with a remastered picture. Along with two versions of the film, the numerous special effects are broken down in the impressive Supplemental Materials section. James Cameron's complete script and over 700 storyboards are included; they can be viewed separately or together in the DVD-ROM supplement. There's even the ultimate Easter egg: a third version of the film for those who dig deep enough. --Doug Thomas

5.0 out of 5 stars The Epitome of Action Films July 13 2004
By Andrew
Format:DVD
We are all too familiar with the story of this movie, so I will spare you the details. "The Terminator" was a sleeper sci-fi hit that was a rarity in its genre. Movie-goers were beginning to see sci-fi films that rose above others in the genre and even other genres. "Alien", "Blade Runner", "Star Wars", and, the film that started the revolution, "2001: A Space Odyessy". What made "Terminator" so different was not just another bleak view of the future, but a tense, edgy thriller with some damn fine writing. But while it took an effort to make films like those, it took a greater one to make a sequel. "Aliens", "The Empire Strikes Back", and very few others accomplished this task successfully. As for "T2", unless you've been living under a rock, we all know how well it did. This is definitely the best of the series (in my opinion at least) and definitely one of the best action movies to grace the face of our planet. This is the movie that also started the trend of making action movies with ridiculously huge budgets and paying action stars ridiculously huge salaries. But T2 delivers, with a great story, stunning visuals, and Schwarzenegger in his prime. Plus who can forget Brad Fiedel's synthetic score which has been parodied numerous times?
Why another DVD though? This film has been put on DVD almost as many times as "Independence Day". Special features are somewhat reserved here, so what justifies another release? DVD producer Van Ling answers the question in a quaint little insert about how new technology has developed since the last T2 transfer.

Format:DVD
as good as the first terminator movie is,this one is better.it's got
harrowing action sequences,quite a bit of humour,and more character
development.it's not as dark as the first one.instead it has more of
hopeful tone.it has strong message too,that is becoming more and more
relevant each passing day Arnie is back,but this time his terminator is
has more dimensions to his personality.Joe Morton,a terrific(though
underrated) actor also plays a prominent role,and is also
terrific.Linda Hamilton returns and her character is much more defined
and has more to do.she is certainly up to the task.but
really,the(human)star of the movie has to be Robert Patrick in what i
think was a career making performance.the guy is just amazing.the
biggest star of all in this movie would have to be the special
effects.they were beyond cutting edge then,and they still stand the
test of time today.for me this movie is definitely in my top 10 movies
of all time.my vote for Terminator 2:Judgment Day is a perfect 5/5

5.0 out of 5 stars EXTREMELY good DVD June 26 2003
Format:DVD
Well, people have nearly said it all about this new DVD edition.
But I just wanted to add a few things:
The version in this Extreme DVD, is the "Special Extended edition". Despite what it says on the menu, it is not the plain special edition. It actually includes all the possible deleted escenes they ever took out.
And some people are saying that the only way to see the theatrical version is by playing the disc on your computer's DVD-ROM, on windows media 9 series. Well, that is not truth. You can watch the theatrical version on your normal DVD player. Just highlight (red) "sensory control", then on your remote control press the "right" button 5 times. To the right, the phrase "The future is not set" will appear. Then press "enter" on your remote control, and the "play special edition" will morph into "theareical version". There you have it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Marketing ploy - not worth the extra $$$ June 16 2003
Format:DVD
The Extreme edition is clearly a marketing ploy targeted to bring in extra $$$ with the upcoming T3 release. The so-called improved picture in the Extreme edition is not noticeable compared to the Ultimate edition. The Ultimate edition contains more versions of the movie and also has the DTS soundtrack that the Extreme edition lacks. If you already own the Ultimate edition, don't waste your money on the Extreme edition.

4.0 out of 5 stars Far from perfect, but a welcome new Blu-Ray June 8 2009
Format:Blu-ray
Ahhhh, Terminator 2. After countless DVD releases and a substandard Blu-Ray disc featuring only the theatrical cut, it's nice to see the film get it's proper double-dip. The SkyNET Edition of T2 is essentially the theatrical and special editions of the film on one Blu-Ray, packaged within some nice bonus materials. It isn't perfect though.

The mainmost reason to buy this particular edition of T2 is because of Blu-Ray's capabilities. Here, they're put to awesome use. The picture has never been cleaner or sharper than in 1080p, and the new audio tracks are flat out rockin'. It's nice to hear a 6.1 DTS-HD lossless audio track rumbling the walls. So, from a purely moviegoing standpoint, SkyNET wins big.

That being said, the movie flops on bonus features. Well, actually, if compared to the majority of Blu-Ray releases out there, the film might fare well, but I pitted the SkyNET Edition against the standard-def ULTIMATE EDITION DVD, and it didn't win. The tin-case Ultimate Edition is now and out-of-print collector's item, and it still remains the quintessential king of T2 releases, bar none. Where the SkyNET Edition does pack in some interesting features (including an audio commentary with 26 crew and cast members), most of them must be accessed during the actual movie playback. Only a few of the features can be accessed from an index, and the important ones (like behind-the-scenes footage) are crunched down to a small window at the top right-hand corner of the screen. ARGH!!!

Why they just didn't decide to incorporate ULTIMATE'S plethora of bonus features (which clock in at almost 11 hours, last I checked) is beyond me. In short, the SkyNET Edition was supposed to usurp the throne, but it ended up falling a bit flat.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not as relentless as the 1st, but it makes the set a better narrative.
I don't like Arnie. Never have. Never will.
But "The Terminator" was a solid piece of writing and Arnie could just walk through it and not even attempt to act. Read more
