Terminator 3 makes us follow the boring story of John Connor and Kate Brewster, both future leaders of the resistance, as they try and evade a female Terminator. It is mostly not exciting except for a few drawn out and over the top car sequences.
I could go on to explain why this film is bad, but honestly their are more important questions. How did this get a 70% critics score and a 47% audience score? The audience had the right idea, but what were the critics thinking? Were they bribed to right a good review? Did they feel obligated to after the success of the actually good Terminator 2? Honestly I have no idea and am just sitting here wondering how this could happen, and how many critics would change their mind if they were to resubmit their review.
A needless sequel that only repeats the formula of the one before, with unstoppable (and even tiring) action for those who enjoy seeing cyborgs destroying an entire city - and it is easy to notice how it ruins the continuity of the series.
There are some awesome effects, decent characters, and action, but it does come off feeling like a retread of the much-superior previous installment. That doesn't mean it isn't a fun ride, but this one comes off less memorable and a little more dated.
Well it is a major disappointment from 2 and feels like it toke more elements from 1 the villain is terrible also some plot elements do not work and we lack an emotion connection between the terminator and John film doesn't even try to lake there first encounter emotional that be side Arnold still shines and really is holding the film even provides the emotional that the others are lacking also to film Does set up Jon perfectly but fails to used it further along other then those problems there is still enjoyment in this film and some of the action sequences aren't bad but doesn't compare to t 2
