An augmented human and Sarah Connor must stop an advanced liquid Terminator from hunting down a young girl, whose fate is critical to the human race.
The artists and technicians at Legacy incorporated a variety of materials for the actual manufacturing of the prosthetics. John Rosengrant elaborates, "We used prosthetic transfers when we could because they're fast, easy to apply, and very thin. They're pretty bomb-proof, and they go on in a hurry. Anything that had a bigger buildup on it were plasticized gel-filled silicone appliances so that they would move really nicely." Bill Corso is also partial to foam latex, a near ubiquitous staple for a practical FX film. "There was a lot of foam latex." Corso admitted. "All the body pieces were foam latex. I'm a big fan of foam latex, and when it works, it's fantastic. Sometimes I'll take foam over silicone many days of the week because it's tried and true, and it always works. But we used a little bit of everything, which was great."
It's like a giant strobe light burning right through my eyes. Somehow I can still see. Children look like burnt paper... black... not moving. And then the blast wave hits them. And then they fly apart like leaves.

In one scene, the T800 is seen with a dog cuddling up next to him. In the first two Terminator films it is established that dogs bark incessantly and become agitated when a Terminator is present, hence the reason why they are used to help humans in detecting them. However, in this movie the scene is used to suggest that the T800 has changed and is no longer the same machine it once was. In addition, if the dog was raised around a terminator there is no reason it would not be used to being around one.
The opening logos have VHS fuzz over them. In addition, the Paramount Pictures and 20th Century Fox logos briefly flash their versions from 1995.
In India, the film received a U/A (equivalent to the PG-13 rating) after some nudity was cut. A disclaimer requesting viewer discretion during the violent scenes that "can be disturbing to watch" was also added.
