Terminator 2 is a state-of-the-art action movie, all right: It gets you thinking that the most reasonable thing might just have been to blow everyone away. full review

Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly

A humongous, visionary parable that intermittently enthralls and ultimately disappoints. T2 is half of a terrific movie -- the wrong half. full review

Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine

For all its state-of-the-art pyrotechnics and breathtaking thrills, this bruisingly exciting movie never loses sight of its humanity. That's its point, and its pride. full review

David Ansen, Newsweek

Arnold Schwarzenegger is more comfortable and assured here than the first time around, reprising a role so perfectly suited to the voice and physique that have established him as a larger-than-life film persona. full review

Variety Staff, Variety

As a fancy mechanism fueled by the pleasure of watching legions of people and equipment being summarily destroyed, this is pretty hot stuff. full review

Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader

Mr. Cameron has made a swift, exciting special-effects epic that thoroughly justifies its vast expense and greatly improves upon the first film's potent but rudimentary visual style. full review

Janet Maslin, New York Times

It's Cameron's show; he's the reigning king of movie pow, with dark wit and a poet's eye for mayhem. T2 cost a reported $100 million, and you can actually see where the money went.

Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

Nobody, I think, will complain that it doesn't have enough action. full review

Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

It's a tank of a movie, big, powerful and hard to resist. full review

Hal Hinson, Washington Post

Brutally beautiful, darkly comic sci-fi full review

Joe Brown, Washington Post

Few films have matched it within the science fiction genre for sheer white-knuckle exhilaration. full review

James Berardinelli, ReelViews
