Superb remastering, and NO "missing" scenes
Verified purchase
Over the years I've owned most versions of T2 from VHS onwards, and this is as undoubtedly good as I've seen it look (OK, so I haven't seen a 4k UHD Blu-ray yet). The remastering is excellent, and if anything can make the film look almost too bright in places during the daylight scenes as the clean-up will naturally have made things look brighter, but the contrast is still spot on for my tastes and thankfully they haven't gotten carried away with the colour saturation. Several other reviewers have complained that "key scenes" are "missing" from this version, but then go on to talk about originally deleted scenes that were restored for the 1993 Special Edition VHS and laserdisc releases, plus the later "ultimate edition" which has two further restored scenes (one of which is the longer - but not really alternative - ending). The version on offer here is the original 1991 theatrical release, that never contained these "key scenes" , so they couldn't have been that key really (though strangely some of them did make it in to the Australian theatrical release, but were excised for the video release). These added scenes are interesting, but don't enhance the the film in the way the additional "special edition" scenes in Aliens or The Abyss do). Overall I think this theatrical version of T2 has better pacing than the special or ultimate editions. If you saw T2 the first time around in 1991, then this is the film you will remember, only it looks much better now than it did back then. If you really must have the additional scenes from the special edition then you need to look elsewhere.

Missing Scene :(
Verified purchase
Really unhappy. The film is obviously immense but the scene where they reboot the terminator I.e. open his head and reboot the chip is missing... so gutted :(

The missing scenes are a huge disappointment
Verified purchase
One edgy individual proclaims in his review that this version is better for its missing scenes and that people downrating it due to its missing scenes have "no idea about filmmaking". Well...right back at you, kid. I have no idea what you're on. The missing scenes are key to the character arcs and later big scenes in the film. It's hard to describe how without getting into spoilers, suffice to say: don't bother with this one, go get the extended version. I regret buying this one and will be sourcing the other elsewhere. The extra scenes massively enhance character development and do some important planting for later payoffs in the film's final moments. They flesh out subtle psychological quirks that are underdeveloped and barely identifiable in this sloppily cinema-shortened cut.

And to the person insulting other reviewers for complaining about the missing scenes: if you can't see what they contribute to the film's overall structure, I don't know that you're even paying attention, frankly.

Terrible Version
Verified purchase
Love this film, hadn't seen it in years so fancied a watch.
Unfortunately this version cuts out loads of scenes, including pivotal ones, for example the reprogramming scene in the garage. This throws off continuity and makes the watch frustrating.
I don't expect to pay for half a film. Buy the original on DVD I'd 6ou want to appreciate it for the great film it is.

I love this film but?
Verified purchase
I love this film but i disagree with paying for it. Prime offers you the original Terminator then take £3.99 or thereabouts for T-2 which i feel is wrong. We pay £79 yearly for prime and i just think that Amazon can loosen the slacks on see again movies for prime members. T-2 i would give 5 stars because i think it is the best Terminator film of the series. It is interesting that the director refers back this take with the story-line and i think that Arnie and the chase on the Harley fat-bob keeps it real to the bone. We can have all the future techo all we like but we still crave normality. The chase and even the rumble of the Harley is the perfect combination to this version of The terminator trilogy....

First big budget of the franchise
Verified purchase
* Synopsis

The film continues where the initial left off. The son, (John), of the lead (Linda Hamilton), is unhappy with his foster parents and is going into criminality. Linda Hamilton continues to be sectioned as her beliefs about robots from the future and impending nuclear war are disbelieved. The future sides send back through time travel two cybernetic robots (Arnold Schwarzenegger), (Robert Patrick) to save or kill John and it's just who wins first. What happens next?

* Commentary

This film was the cutting edge of computer special effects at its time. In fact, the scene where the cyborg walks into the hospital and melts on the black and white checker tiles floor and recovers would have been a Masters in Computer Science or Mathematical degree on its own. I prefer the director cut as it's more shaped and explanations. But overall, I prefer the movie 'Terminator 3: the Rise of the Machines'. as the best of all the movies in this franchise. The scenes of the nuclear war have been complemented by scientists to have been the most accurate in movies of this time. All the special effects all the way through are still impressive. The cast is believable and all of them give the best they can to the story and how they mix and develop the store direction and motivation.

A Terminator is reprogramnmed and sent back in time to save John Connor from being killed by a more lethal Terminator. Arnold Schwarzenegger returns to his most famous role in this scifi action classic. Some of the best action scenes ever made for cinema are here with this huge budget for 1991 anyway release even bigger than the small budget 1984 original which was an unexpected hit. Schwarzenegger is the good Terminator this time round after playing the evil original in the first film with the then unknown Robert Patrick as the evil more advanced shape shifting Terminator in a very menacing performance and Linda Hamilton returns from the first film completely reinventing Sarah Connor from waitress into one of cinema's best female action heroes and introduces the then unknown Edward Furlong as the young John Connor. One of the best scifi action movies of all time with a career best performance from Arnold Schwarzenegger and still director James Cameron's best film. Actually this is a masterpiece the new digitally restored picture is stunning. While the franchise would go downhill after this, this is essential viewing.

quality very good but some scenes are cut out from the film
Verified purchase
was impressed by the quality of the remastered version, but was upset that some scenes were cut out, for instance the scene where they reset his chip and sarah was about to destroy it and the scene when he tries to learn how to smile. I have no idea if any more have been cut out.
