Wow, this was very good to great, best of all of the Terminator movies. Bring ear plugs just to be safe and enjoy!
"Terminator:Salvation" is yet another dreary film in the series. The people who made this film, don't know anything from the early series which was fresh and new. This film is nothing new to say about rebelllion humans batting robots. Even Christian Bale's rant which was broadcast on the internet is far better than the movie. There is a lot of battles in the movie, but the actors are deprive of human emotion. Take Jane Alexander who was nominated for an Oscar for Best supporting Actress for "Kramer vs. Kramer," was busted down to a few lines. Linda Hamilton who was in the first two Terminator movies was heard only on tape. Arnold Schwarenegger only appear as the 1984 version of himself. Director Mc G tookj this movie and make it into a dark terrible view of the future. Movies who have dark dreary futures have hope. This film has no hope. Christian Bale and Moon bloodgood are the only two performers whom I like in this movie. Recently, FOX has cancelled the Terminator TV series. Now it's likely that the movie version may probaby follow suit.
The movie is not without its problems, the script is a bit thin, and Christian Bale does a do a lot of yelling. But its a solid movie, and a much better movie then Terminator 3 was. Its not as good as the first two Terminator movies, not by far, but few movies are. This is a nice addition to the series though.
A bit of a letdown I expected better lots of action but thats it.Not even close to Star Trek if choosing between the two.This is just above a wait for rental.
good movie but like all the other movies i am a bit confused as to what came first the chicken or the egg?
This was a good action movie that continued the Terminator franchise satisfactorily. Its primary trouble is that it's the fourth movie, so originality pretty much goes out the door before it starts, and the only thing left is to present things in a new way or to introduce new Terminators.
Fortunately, we do get some new killing machines to look at. Two scenes in particular were memorable; the beginning scene with the A-10 Warthogs and the gas station sequence that was seen in many clips and the trailers were very good.
It's been a few months since I saw this in the theater and I'm looking forward to revisiting it when it's released on Blu-ray.
