Most people know the story of this movie, because of the mountain of sequels and spin-offs it spawned. It was a relatively low budget movie, which shows at times, but it is still the best and most enjoyable one in my opinion.
It is also possibly the ultimate 80s movie. From the visual style to the clothes, music and hair, and the themes of technology and warfare, it's like a composite of everything that made the 80s what it was. Sometimes it feels like a video game, or an R rated GI Joe or Transformers cartoon from the time. The degree to which it influenced action/sci-fi movies for years afterwards can't be overstated.
But ultimately what makes this movie and the rest of the series stick is that it is possibly the most accurately predictive sci-fi story of recent times.

I just bought this BD RE-issue. Because even though I use to own the Skynet ED. I felt the Skynet BD was way over kill with a far too complex menue system. And I never liked the DNR that was used in the Skynet BD. This release is far superior.It loads a lot faster/the menue system is straight forward. And the Video transfer offers a very nice grain structure. Which belongs their.And is true to the 35mm film elements. And fore a film fan like me that's very very importent.!!!!! By theway I also like the DTS MA 20 channel headphones options. Thanks Lions gate and Studio canal fore thinking of us film fans. As fore you grain haters.Well there's still the Skynet ED. PS. nice slate of special features too.
Since Amazon have been stingy with additional details about this re-release, featuring the new artwork that more accurately resembles the theatrical poster, and since no one single buyer of this new re-release has chosen to actually review the actual product, it has thus fallen upon me, your humble magistrate, to do so. I bought this newly re-released version of T2, because I loved the new cover art, and assumed that all extras have been ported over from the T2 'Skynet Edition' of the blu-ray. Not so. The special features included on this new release, are as follows:
*Special and Theatrical Editions of the film *The Making of T2 Featurette *T2 More Than Meets the Eye Featurette *T2 On-The-Set Montage *Theater Vision Descriptive Audio Narrative for the Blind -- that's it.
Missing from this new re-release are the excellent audio commentaries from the 'Skynet Edition,' the Picture-in-Picture modes featuring storyboards & behind the scenes...
