They tried and it was better than I had anticipated considering how much later this sequel came out. At least it has Arnold in his character role as good guy Terminator sent from the future to protect once again John Connor (this time for some reason Furlong was replaced with Nick Stahl who was fine and everything but it's not the same) who is now in his 20's. The evil Terminator is now a new super powered model female robot from the future and of course we are treated to plenty of special effects and lots of chase scenes and loads of action. It just doesn't have the excitement level the others did plus the characters aren't quite as loveable and as frightening. Claire Danes in this one is down right irritating, the whole love thing didn't seem to belong or rather it would have been better without. Still if you saw the first 2 I would recommend this one too, just don't get your hopes up too high (and it's better than the 4th one).

Availability:  On DVD & Blu-Ray
