Terminator 2: Judgment Day

The Cinerama continues its 70mm series with James Cameron's action-filled 1991 sequel. Today, we can all make jokes about the governor of California, but Arnold Schwarzenegger is undeniably effective as the bad robot turned good. Here and in True Lies, Cameron directs the stiff Austrian in his best performances. Schwarzenegger's old-school Terminator is like an MS-DOS machine battling the silvery, morphing Terminator 2 assassin (the sly, blank Robert Patrick). Linda Hamilton kicks ass as the mother determined to protect her son (Edward Furlong--whatever became of that guy?). Maybe she should get into politics. (R) BRIAN MILLER
