Arnold Schwarzenegger returns as "The Terminator" in this explosive action-adventure spectacle.

Linda Hamilton reprises her role as Sarah Connor, John's mother, a quintessential survivor who has been institutionalized for her warning of the nuclear holocaust she knows is inevitable. Together, the threesome must find a way to stop the ultimate enemy-the T-1000, the most lethal Terminator ever created. Co-written, produced and directed by James Cameron ("The Terminator," "Aliens," "Titanic"), this visual tour de force is also a touching human story of survival.

Terminator 2: Judgment Day (Skynet Edition) Blu-ray Review
This is where it gets a bit complicated. Home Theater enthusiasts have been crying foul over the digital noise reduction since it was released to the public. However, upon closer examination taken by the Digitilbits.com, it appears that it is VC-1 codec that is the issue not the transfer itself. However, in my opinion, the release looks amazing. I have personally owned every single release of Terminator 2: Judgment Day; there has never been an optical format; and in my opinion, this beats every single one of them.
Back in 1992, hearing a demo of the future battle scene in a local retail store's home theater room sold me on purchasing a Dolby surround system and a laser disc player. Ever since then the crashing of a HK from the left front speaker to the back right speaker has brought tears and joy to my eyes. With this new release, and the DTS-HD MA 6.1 lossless soundtrack, Terminator 2: Judgment Day has never sounded better and is music to any enthusiast's ears. The explosions pack their punch just like the film did in the theater, the dialog is crisp, and my appreciation for Brad Fiedel‘s soundtrack has never been higher.
With a film so important to the movie industry, it is no surprise that Terminator 2: Judgment Day has always had a great selection of supplements. Now with the advance of technology, viewers can even be more immersed in the behind-the-scenes action involved with creating such a landmark film. However, since this is such an old release, Lionsgate has basically reissued the same bonus material. But they have also displayed it in a way that seems new and fresh.
