  1. The surprise is that a picture made to be exciting for 136 minutes is so unexciting most of the time. It starts with a bang and keeps banging, so there's little suspense and no crescendo. [12 Aug 1991, p.28]

The soundtrack, my god the soundtrack, the instrumentals are completely memorable, and i bet the intense intro song will be pounding in your head days after you've finished watching it. It's one of the most memorable and highly underrated, from the looks of the critic scores on here, action movies of all time. Full Review »

There's no room for improvement. It was short and sweet, well thought out, epic, logical, engrossing. It had soft spots, action, tons of character development, just too many great scenes to mention. Terminator 2 is satisfying, like a good meal that you never get tired of eating. Full Review »
