I had misgivings about this sequel before watching it because I found the first story enough. It was good, but the ending ruined it. Unsurprisingly, I didn’t enjoy this one as much as I liked part one, though the fact that Schwarzenegger was now the good guy was a really nice and clever twist. Sarah annoyed me throughout the whole thing. I know you’re angry and desperate, stop yelling already. Speaking of which, if I hear one kid shout ‘Come on!’ or ‘I got you!’ tomorrow, I might throw things at them and I found John ‘teaching’ the Terminator how to be more human rather idiotic too. This movie did have a much better finale than the first one, though it was rather unfortunate that the ice-cream cart stopped right outside my window during the moment Schwarzenegger was sacrificing himself.

The score was even less interesting than the first one. Great opening and finale, but other than that, nothing remotely engaging.
