Terminator 2: Judgment Day is the most renown film in The Terminator franchise. Its groundbreaking CGI visual effects won four Academy Awards. The use of such technology, especially on the T-1000 robot, was integral to the success of the film. T2’s success and legacy have propelled its characters, the T-800 endoskeleton, Sarah Connor, John Connor, and the T-1000 robot into pop culture icons. Terminator 2 was the highest grossing film of 1991 and multiple publications have since ranked the film one of the greatest action, science fiction film sequels of all time.
