without a doubt. T2, Judgement Day, was hands down the clear winner. I haven't seen T3, and I hate to review a movie I haven't seen, however, Judgement Day revolutionized today's special FX. Arnold's best movie!
113. what the hell r u saying. u saying that t2 is pussy? wht the FUC* is wrong with u. people may argue bout t3 but t2! i mean, it is THE BEST MOVIE OF ALL TIMES. but it is ur opinion and i really dont wanna start a fight. plz i wanna have peace
for me its a tossup btwn t2 and t1, the freshness of the t1 storyline when i saw it as a kid, just made me love that movie, u know ..advanced machines sent back into time. And that scene in the last part when they blow up the truck arnie was driving...and u see a humanoind figure burning in flames and u think finally it died, and suddenly u see..the t800 rise up in its full glory with a damaged foot it limps still trying to finish its mission of termination. u guys know what i am talking about!! T2 was the same cept the effects of course was far superior than t1 as the years passed, just comparing the 2 movies... t1 for sure. t2 close 2nd.

People think T1 is the best for a number of reasons.
It has a gritty realistic feel.
It has suspense and action, and is well scripted.
It`s the basis for the Terminator films and sets up the universe.
Arnold is truly menacing in it, before he is made into a nice guy for the sequel (and made into a caricature for T3)
The story is emotionally moving, makes sense and ends satisfyingly.
T2 mostly expands on the first film, doing most of the same stuff just on a larger scale. It also changes the characters so that there is an interesting contrast with the first film, while adding more to the story without messing up what has gone before. All this while ending on a positive, hopeful note.
Whereas we come to T3. Without getting vicious, it quite frankly seems like it`s set in a completely different universe.
