Terminator 2: Judgment Day

Today, we can all make jokes about the ex-governor of California, but Arnold Schwarzenegger is undeniably effective in James Cameron's action-filled 1991 sequel 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
