TERMINATOR 2: JUDGMENT DAY

Applying some of the same finesse that he put to good use in the ALIEN franchise, James Cameron grabbed the reins of his TERMINATOR sequel and created a grander, sweeping epic of a movie with faster action, glossier visuals, and more thrilling special-effects. Inside the casing of this battling robotic beast beats the heart of a real human being, which is why TERMINATOR 2 forever changed the face of action filmmaking and gave a whole generation of grown men a reason to cry.
