The previous Terminator Blu-ray looked pretty good, and it takes an eye trained better than mine to notice any relevant upgrade in this remastered cut of the 1984 sci-fi stalwart.
| Original Score: 4/4
Sure there were some cool action sequences and a neat cameo by the Governator (or at least a cameo of his face), but the movie doesn't hold up together well as a whole.
| Original Score: 2/5
Endless rounds of boisterous battle scenes and eardrum annihilating explosions, until you couldn't care less which side wins. So if there's any real human passion rising to the surface amid the rubble, it's all about the guns, baby.
Blu-ray discs such as this one should sport warning labels!
It rarely lags, the special effects are first-rate, and Sam Worthington shows the most acting talent any action hero has displayed since Brian Bosworth pretended to tackle Bo Jackson.
First PG-13 Terminator is loud, explosive, and dark.
Football analysts will tell you that when surrounded by a group of outstanding players, a mediocre quarterback can lead a team to victory -- A similar situation occurs here.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
...an awfully bleak affair, with little happening beneath the carnage and nobody to cheer. (Blu-ray Anthology)
| Original Score: 5/10
Mind under matter!
