To this day, there are a handful of iconic roles associated with the immortal Arnold Schwarzenegger, the most recognizable (arguably) of those being the T-800. Having successfully catapulted the bodybuilder-turned-actor’s career into the stratosphere with 1984’s The Terminator, director James Cameron came back for another round in 1991 with Terminator 2: Judgement Day, sparking endless debate amongst the geek community in the time since as to which film is superior. Personally, I lean toward the original, but appreciate the merits of both.
As time has gone by, several sequels by way of other directors have debuted in cinemas, none of which garnered the acclaim of the first two installments. In fact, both Salvation and Genesys intended on kickstarting new multi-picture arcs, each of which obviously failed to do so. Furthermore, things didn’t go so well on the small screen, with The Sarah Connor Chronicles being cancelled by Fox after only two seasons.
Still, as is the case with most classics that are beloved to this degree, the studio can’t help but keep revisiting T2. After all, a 3D cinematic re-release happened just this past summer and, now, yet another home video repackaging is on the way.
This time, though, it’s not just the 4K upgrade that’s enticing diehard fans to come back for another helping – it’s the myriad of bonus features that’ll provide hours of entertainment. Seriously, take a look at the rundown below and try telling us you’re not impressed.
