Although the 12-minute film portion, a sort of minisequel to “Terminator 2,” was made by extravagant director James Cameron with all his original stars (including Ah-nold and Linda Hamilton), it’s hardly just another movie. It’s got three screens, six 8-foot robots, gunfire, smoke bombs, and motorcyclists that seamlessly dive in and out of the filmed action. The film cost $60 million to make, which when it was produced in 1996 qualified it as the most expensive movie, per minute, in history, trumping Disney’s equally bombastic “Captain EO.” Strategy: This edgy, cynical show splits the eardrums with romping, stomping mayhem, so keep small children away unless they’re hard cases. Those in the front rows will have to pivot their heads to see all the action.
