Fast forward eleven years after the events of the first film, a young juvenile John Connor is out to hit the arcades when he discovers that a cop is looking for him. What he also finds out is that the copper after his tail isn't any ordinary authority figure, but a cyborg, better known as T-1000, sent from the future to terminate John to prevent him from forming and leading a resistance army against the machines.

So how does a ten year old defend himself from a machine that's able to manifest its arms into knives and heal itself from any assaults taken upon itself? Enter Arnold Schwarzenegger, the T-800, a less advanced cyborg of the T-1000, initially sent out in the first film to destroy his mother, Sarah Connor. It has been reprogrammed this time around to protect the life of John. Together with his mother and Arnie, they set out on a mission to prevent the occurrence of 'Judgment Day', a future event in which humans are exterminated by the onslaught of the machines.

No other action movie comes close to hitting the nail on the head than this sci-fi classic. It's an action movie with a storyline and excellent concept. The special effects aren't grossly outdated and the performances are top notch. It's a bit of a shame that the third installment of the film did not meet expectations, however we can only hope that James Cameron one day returns to reboot the franchise that we all grew up to love and watch.
