Some interesting plot developments and a smashing (in both senses of the word) chase scene can't quite erase the familiarity of it all, but this is still a valiant effort by all concerned.

Doesn't have the gritty feel of 'Terminator' or the sleek cutting edge of technology look of 'Judgment Day,' but it's a decent addition to the Terminator mythos.

With splashy digital effects and punchy stuntwork, the solid T3 slides along enjoyably, but doesn't have the impeccable story and visual design of the previous entry.

T3 does not have the sense of humanity that the two previous films had, but Mostow's focused direction helps get the job done.

That Rise of The Machines is a genuinely good, thoughtful action flick has to register as a surprise...

From the moment Arnold boots up and gets down to business, T3 is easily the best action film of the summer.

Until the gutsy ending, there doesn’t seem to be much of a reason for this movie to have been made. And damn if it’s not fun to watch.

...entertaining for the moment, exciting, even exhilarating in parts, but ultimately it's an empty exercise in fuss and bother that leaves one strangely dissatisfied.

'Mostow logra una cinta llena de acción, con buenos efectos especiales que no decepciona ni al más clavado fanático de la franquicia.'

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.
