Easily the most satisfying action film of a year overloaded with disappointing sequels.

Mostow makes the movie zip, and just because it isn't Deep Thoughts doesn't mean it isn't enjoyable.
| Original Score: 3.5/5

What sickness in the filmmakers inspired them to go ahead and make this TV movie sludge instead of doing some kind of stab at creating the feel of a "Terminator" film?
| Original Score: 1/4

The best popcorn movie of the summer.

The amusing freshness of T2 is unsuccessfully recycled in this less superior carbon copy.

It's just darn good fun to see Arnie back in action.

Ultimately terminator 3's unremitting cynicism wore me down and I grew simply resentful towards the movie. It exists for no other purpose than to be number three in a brand name franchise that would guarantee good box office returns.

Em retrospecto, acaba prejudicando seus antecessores.

It left me feeling giddy like a kid at a carnival.

It's a slick, smooth and indeed explosive instalment, but it has neither the spit and polish of T2 nor the grittiness of the cult hit T1.

...Cameron set an incredibly high standard for this series, and Mostow has to be commended for staying true to the themes and ideas established in the first two flicks...

Jonathan Mostow's T3 is a spectacular addition to the franchise.

was more action than you could shake a stick at and I didn't roll my eyes a hundred times like I normally do.

A chaotic mess, saddled with its own utter meaninglessness and afflicted by the need to be bigger-better-faster-more.

Sporting sequences that make the Matrix Reloaded and Hulk feel like Sunday morning cheesefest cartoons, it's a blockbuster that'll leave you begging for more

A worthwhile return to the saga, but more importantly, it's just darn good fun to see Arnie back in action.

The indestructible meets the unterminatable - again... If you're a fan of futuristic action films, science friction, T3 is plenty satisfying.

When you leave the theater, you'll be pumped full of adrenaline without a hint of the buyer's remorse that you've felt so often this summer.

An efficient, solid action picture, but one that causes the Terminator series to lose a little of it's luster. James Cameron's ideas are sorely missed.

Exciting to watch but it's far too pale a copy of the prior installment to grip the imagination.
