"Superb Terminator tale"
Twice Sarah Connor and her son John have been able to
prevent Judgment Day, the time when Skynet becomes sentient
and declares war on its creators the human race. After the
last attack on Cyberdyne, the company that was started to
create the Skynet program, the American government took the
project away from the independent contractor and placed it
in the hands of scientists hidden away in a top secret
installation in Antarctica.
One of the scientists on the base is an Infiltrator, an
organic computer in human form that wants to make sure that
Skynet will come into existence. John and Sarah Connor and
their ally and good friend, ex-spook Dieter Von Rossbach
have put into place a group of people who will be ready to
fight when Judgment day arrives and the machines try to
annihilate humanity. When the Connors and Dieter learn
about the base in Antarctica, they prepare themselves to
once more go up against an enemy determined to destroy them.
T2: RISING STORM stays true to the story line developed in
the Terminator movies and takes the plot one step closer to
the day the Skynet computer becomes sentient. Although
this is an exciting action-adventure thriller, it is also
human relationship drama. The mother-son bond between
Sarah and John is beautiful to witness and the audience
truly feels sorry for the lives they must lead if they want
to prevent the extinction of mankind.
