TERMINATOR 2: Ten years after a futuristic cyborg was sent to kill Sarah Conner and she survived, a stronger Terminator (T-1000) comes back into her life to kill her son, John Conner. Again, the robotic assassins visit the past to eliminate the future leader of the resistance party (i.e. John Conner) but, thankfully, the rebels re-send a protector to keep them all alive. But this time, it’s the old Terminator, who’s out to save the future! As past selves meet the decisions of future selves (the mind melts), TERMINATOR 2 is an exciting sequel complete with stunning make-up and special effects. Hasta la vista, baby.
