Sent to the present from a war-ravaged and machine-dominated future, Arnold Schwarzenegger returns as the iconic T-800. But the cyborg's second coming finds him reprogrammed as protector, not killer, with the sole objective of protecting teenage rebel John Connor (Edward Furlong), the future saviour of the human race. Not to be outdone, the machines send back the T-1000 (Robert Patrick), a new and improved terminator made of liquid metal. Fight! All the action and jaw-dropping effects you'd expect from Hollywood's pre-eminent ground-breaker James Cameron.
