|Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis:
A ``kinder, gentler'' cyborg from the future returns, this time to protect the soon-to-be savior of humanity from destruction by a rival terminator. Box-office smash has special effects to knock your socks off (especially the ``liquid metal''), and action to spare, but like so many sequels, lacks the freshness of the first film and gives us no one to root for. Oscar winner for Best Makeup, Sound, Sound Effects Editing, and Visual Effects. Some versions feature additional footage. Super 35.
