Took one of my favourite movies ever and made it last longer!

Some bold removals of classic lines (onc action I noticed) that result in a more well rounded Terminator character. Really highlighting the tragedy of the single mother's son. Seeking affection in a programmed and tunnel-visioned cybernetic organism from a doomed future. Truly sad!!

I watched this shortly after seeing 'The Hunt for Sarah Connor' and must say it added to its sequel no end. Watch that one. Then watch this one. Brilliant!

By far the best T2 edit I've seen, ThrowgnCpr does a great job of adding the best parts of the special edition and takes some of the lesser parts of the theatrical cut and combines them to make the best version possible. By removing unnecessary parts and cringe worthy portions made it a much better film and one of the most impressive parts of the edit is the removal of the bad to bone audio and what it is replaced with makes it a throwback to the original movie. One last thing that impressed me was the intro and how awesome and authentic it looked using the liquid metal, so overall this movie has just been turned from a good movie in my opinion as I have always like it but now it's an even better movie and my go to version from now on.

By far the best T2 edit I've seen. The pub exit scene gave me chills with that old-school exploitation soundtrack. And the hasta-la-vista being cut brought me back to my first viewing of the film when I felt it was a bit 'off'. It felt so good to watch this version, seriously! I find it odd that the terminator smiling scene was included though, but it doesn't ruin much for me. Overall still the best edit for me personally. Seamless cuts too.

A huge minus for the video quality. Only 720p would be fine if it had a proper bitrate. As it stands now I would recommend it for a small screen viewing or pick another edit. Please upload a higher bitrate one, it's preservation worthy!

The theatrical cut has always been my favourite version of T2 but this adds the best parts of the special edition and takes some of the lesser parts of the theatrical cut to forge a great new version. The most impressive part of the edit is the removal of the bad to bone audio which never ever fit well with the tone elsewhere. I've attempted to seperate some of the original dialogue in this scene myself and found it an impossible task to extract something of a high enough quality so massive repsect to the editor on his work here! The recreated titles and THX FAN intro are brilliantly done too and look completely authentic.

The only nitpick I can find in the whole edit which is just a personal opinion is the inclusion of the smile scene (albeit trimmed) I would have cut that being as the 'trust me' line was cut later. A really fab edit of what is easily one of my top 5 movies ever, it has created a bit of a quandry though as everytime I watch T2 now which is at least twice a year I will have to consider this or the theatrical. That was never an issue before darn it!!

This is the definitive T2 version for me. Period! Without the cheese it makes T2 looks like more T1 (wich is my favorite Terminator btw)
Well done!
