He said he'd be back. This time experience T2 like never before! Go EXTREME with the best picture and sound ever! ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER returns as the Terminator in this explosive action-adventure spectacle. Now he's one of the good guys, sent back in time to protect John Connor, the boy destined to lead the freedom fighters of the future. 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 story of survival.
Because the Terminator 2 Ultimate Edition set the standard for feature-packed DVDs when it was released back in 2000, is there a need for an Extreme Edition? The simple answer is yes. The 2003 Extreme Edition features a brand-new, better-looking transfer and an extremely powerful and involving Dolby 5.1 EX soundtrack. (The Ultimate's DTS track might have had a bit more detail, but it had to be sacrificed due to disc space.) The Extreme Edition focuses on the extended version of the film, but also offers the theatrical version as an Easter egg (highlight Sensory Control then hit the right arrow five times). Perhaps of greatest interest to fans is the commentary track by James Cameron and cowriter William Wisher, replacing the Ultimate's commentary cobbled together from many sources. It's Cameron's first commentary and it provides a wealth of information and anecdotes on the film's production and themes. You'll need to stay on your toes to digest all the information offered in the interactive mode, a constant stream of subtitled trivia and information and countless icons that will take you out of the film to cover a variety of topics.
Making-of documentaries are where the Extreme Edition comes up a bit short, but a lot of that kind of info is covered in the interactive mode. There's a new 24-minute segment on T2's role in the evolution of movie graphics, and 8 minutes of on-the-set footage. Among various DVD-ROM toys, the most enticing feature is the high-definition version of the theatrical release. Unfortunately, the heavy system requirements will make it unplayable to many consumers until they upgrade their PCs. --David Horiuchi

|T2 Skynet Edition - Is it better than the previous T2 Blu-Ray?||
On highdefdigest, a place where I rely on reviews of the picture quality of Blu-ray movies, it says, "...this 1080p/VC-1 encode (2.35:1) offers no truly appreciable upgrade over the previous Blu-ray (which I reviewed upon first release back in... Read More

|people, you do not need an internet connection to play this disc!!!||
You're right. Even though the disc would not recognize my internet connection through my PS3 the first time for some reason, I was able to watch the entire movie. After the movie was over, I tried the BD Live content again and it found my internet connection and played the extras. An internet... Read More
