Sign In. Edit Terminator 2: Judgment Day Showing all items. Production took sufficiently long that Edward Furlong visibly aged during the shoot. He is clearly much younger in the scene in the desert, for instance, than in other scenes. His voice began to break and had to be pitched to one level in post-production. He had also grown so tall over the months that for one scene shot late in the production schedule, he had to stand in a hole in the ground, in order to maintain continuity in height difference with Linda Hamilton. Robert Patrick trained in a rigorous running regimen while breathing only through his nose, in order to be able to appear to run at high speeds without showing fatigue on film. He had trained so hard that he was able to catch up with Edward Furlong on his dirtbike with great ease, so he had to slow down considerably. For the Los Angeles River sequence, Arnold Schwarzenegger was in pain because he could not wear a glove while cocking the gun, so his fingers would get stuck in the mechanism.
Sign In. Backflash Video. Hide Spoilers. I'm barely ten minutes into this movie when I start thinking, "This is one of those movies where some naive bulb Patrick shacks up with the wrong person Esposito and gets burned in the process". Well after twenty minutes that's definitely the road this movie was heading down with Patrick playing the everyday joe who's fearful of being a failure and the sexy ex-con Esposito who tries to twist him around her little finger to fulfill her plans. Patrick and Esposito's chemistry works fine enough and the film features a couple of funny bits, but the story gets pretty convoluted as it reaches into the third act and by the end it has only gotten worse. So when it's all said and done, Backflash has played out like any number of typical straight to video quickies. There's adequate atmosphere and it features some recognizable faces in the supporting cast, but there's little freshness in the story department.

James Cameron's Terminator 2: Judgment Day turns 25 today, and still stands as one of the best action films ever made. The making of the Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton-starring movie was pretty exceptional too. Here are some fascinating facts you may not know. The production saved on effects by recruiting sets of twins. The hospital security guard who very briefly comes face to face with his T duplicate was played by Don and Dan Stanton. Incidentally, it was one of Schwarzenegger's favourite scenes , and he argued with Cameron over the decision to cut it. An alternate happy ending of the film showed a future in which Judgment Day never happened and John Connor became a senator, complete with Hamilton in old-lady makeup.
