Terminator 2: Judgment Day

In the cult 1984 sci-fi thriller The Terminator, Arnold Schwarzenegger's mechanised killing machine famously declares, "I'll be back!" He is true to his word and returns to the big screen in a 3D version of the 1991 sequel directed and co-written by James Cameron, which looks magnificent in the eye-popping format. In 1995 Los Angeles, 10-year-old John Connor (Edward Furlong) is living with foster parents Todd and Janelle (Xander Berkeley, Jenette Goldstein), who have failed to curb the boy's rebellious streak. Separated from his mother Sarah (Linda Hamilton), who has been consigned to a mental hospital, John rides his motorcycle around the city with his best friend Tim (Danny Cooksey). Skynet dispatches a shape-shifting T-1000 Terminator (Robert Patrick) back in time to kill John and end the human resistance. When the future John Connor learns of Skynet's nefarious plan, he sends a reprogrammed T-800 Terminator (Schwarzenegger) back in time as a protector for his younger self. The two cyborg iterations leave destruction in their wake while John reunites with his mother. They deduce the only way to avert the apocalypse is to kill Cyberdyne head honcho, Miles Bennett Dyson (Joe Morton), who will inadvertently awaken Skynet.
