20 years have passed since the first film, not just for us the viewers, but also for the actors in the cast, and the characters themselves. A lot changes in 20 years. For that reason alone, T2 would have been hard pushed to have quite the same energy and impact as the first film, and while some people may be slightly disappointed by that, T2 is still a very well-crafted film, very enjoyable, and a more than worthwhile sequel, which will undoubtedly reward those who enjoy films with a number of layers to peel away and ponder on. Undoubtedly, there’s another film in the tank, though perhaps it will need another few years, perhaps a decade, before we catch up with these characters again. A must-watch.
First Watch Rating: 8.5/10
