Terminator 2 - Tag der Abrechnung: Der bis dahin teuerste und erfolgreichste Film aller Zeiten, mit dem sich Arnold Schwarzenegger in seinem zweiten Kampf gegen die Maschinen als Terminator manifestiert. 1995 lebt der zehnjährige John Connor (Edward Furlong) bei Pflegeeltern. Seine Mutter Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton) hat ihn in seiner Kindheit auf seine zukünftige Rolle als Anführer des menschlichen Widerstands gegen die Maschinen vorbereitet. Allerdings sitzt sie in einer Psychiatrie, seit sie versucht hat, eine Computerchip-Fabrik zu sprengen. Die K.I. Skynet entsendet aus der Zukunft erneut einen Terminator, um John Connor zu töten, bevor dieser die Menschheit anführen kann. Diesmal handelt es sich um das Model T-1000 (Robert Patrick), das aus einer Vielzahl von Nanobots besteht, die es ihm erlauben, seine Form zu ändern. Während der T-1000 seine Jagd beginnt, hat John Connor einen umprogrammierten T-800 (Arnold Schwarzenegger) in die Vergangenheit geschickt, um sein jüngeres Ich zu beschützen. Der T-800 erscheint gerade noch rechtzeitig, um John Conner vor dem fortschrittlichen Terminator zu beschützen. Da John befürchtet, der T-1000 könnte seine Mutter töten wollen, befiehlt er seinem Beschützer, sie zu befreien. Dies gelingt zwar, doch aufgrund ihrer Paranoia seit dem letzten Aufeinandertreffen, hat Sarah Connor erhebliche Probleme, dem T-800 zu vertrauen. Auf ihrer Flucht erfahren John und Sarah alles über den Tag, an dem die Maschinen zum Schlag gegen die Menschheit ausholen, dem sogenannten „Tag des Jüngsten Gerichts“. Sie fassen den Plan, Skynet zu vernichten, bevor es sein Bewusstsein entwickelt. Doch gleichzeitig macht der scheinbar unzerstörbare T-1000 unaufhörlich Jagd auf sie. „Terminator 2 – Tag der Abrechnung“ ist ein US-amerikanischer, actionlastiger Science-Fiction Film von James Cameron.

Special Forces soldiers are daring, seasoned troops from America's heartland, selected in a tough competition and trained in an extraordinary range of skills. They know foreign languages and cultures and unconventional warfare better than any US fighters, and while they prefer to stay out of the limelight, veteran war correspondent Linda Robinson gained access to their closed world. She traveled with them on the frontlines, interviewed them at length on their home bases, and studied their doctrine, methods, and history. In Masters of Chaos she tells their story through a select group of senior sergeants and field-grade officers, a band of unforgettable characters like Rawhide, Killer, Michael T, and Alan - led by the unflappable Lt. Col. Chris Conner and Col. Charlie Cleveland, a brilliant but self-effacing West Pointer who led the largest unconventional war campaign since Vietnam in northern Iraq. Robinson follows the Special Forces from their first post-Vietnam combat in Panama, El Salvador, Desert Storm, Somalia, and the Balkans to their recent trials and triumphs in Afghanistan and Iraq. She witnessed their secret sleuthing and unsung successes in southern Iraq and recounts here for the first time the dramatic firefights of the western desert. Her blow-by-blow story of the attack on Ansar al-Islam's international terrorist training camp has never been told before. The most comprehensive account ever of the modern-day Special Forces in action, Masters of Chaos is filled with riveting, intimate detail in the words of a close-knit band of soldiers who have done it all. 1.

Although retired from the US Army, Dave Riley is not out of the action as he battles crafty villains and a deadly pestilence in southwestern Africa in this sixth installment of Mayer's absorbing and well-written series (Cut-Out, 1995, etc.). Now a civilian security specialist hired to protect Satellite News Network correspondent Conner Young, the ex-Special Forces warrant officer accompanies his comely charge to Angola, where she's covering a multinational mission to end the civil strife that's racked the onetime Portuguese colony since it gained independence in 1975. After overrunning rebel strongholds and establishing a base camp along the Zairean border, the Green Berets in the UN's vanguard are stopped cold by the outbreak of a virulent plague. Quarantined with Conner and a handful of soldiers who have also been exposed to whatever's in the air, Dave apprehensively follows the unavailing attempts of epidemiologists who have been flown in from the States to deal with the highly contagious disease they refer to as "Z". Released from hot-zone confinement to escort the medical team on a fact-finding mission, he helps determine that man, not nature, has unleashed the lethal virus. With an assist from the National Security Agency, American commanders soon identify the likely culprit as Pieter Van Wyks, head of the syndicate that effectively controls the world's diamond trade. Aware that the avaricious mining magnate has stockpiled vaccine that can reverse the invariably fatal course of Z, the Pentagon details Dave to lead a small band of nothing-left-to-lose troopers in an airborne assault on the cartel's strongly defended headquarters on the Namibian coast. Though on his last legs and facing die-hard adversaries, the old soldier will manage to beat the odds. A ripping good biotech/military thriller that plausibly depicts the high costs (psychological and otherwise) of combating unseen enemies. (From Kirkus Reviews. Copyright 1 1. Language: English.
