Missing is Cameron's signature action modification, best exploited in Aliens: the strapping female heroine. McG's testosterone-juiced world feels a little doomed without her.

It brings me very little joy to report that this version of the popular Terminator franchise is silly, obtuse, and pointless.
June 5, 2009
A shambolic, deafening, intelligence-insulting mess, a crushing failure on almost all counts.

Who cares what it means? Just make it loud. This is the way the series ends, not with a whimper but a bang. Except that it will probably go on, a shade of its former glory.

It's easy to see why Bale was attracted to this role, but this often fascinating actor gives one of his least interesting performances.

Terminator Salvation looks, sounds and tastes like a 2.50 fairground ride. There is nothing human about it. McG feeds you the sort of thrills that can be had on Clacton pier.
June 6, 2019
A soulless, cynical film, designed only to mine a 25-year-old cash cow.

As lifeless as its cyborg villains.

While the sights and sounds of the Skynet military forces hunting down the rag-tag army are all that an adrenaline-junkie could wish for, the human element falls flat.

I seriously thought my eardrums had burst a couple of times during Terminator Salvation. The movie sounds like jets crashing into a junkyard, one after another...

It was good, but not great.

Terminator Salvation is a loud exercise in post-apocalyptic mayhem. When the dust settles and the action subsides, an intriguing story flourishes.

I think McG just wants to show he can spend more money blowing up more stuff more better than Michael Bay. And that's just McDumb.

"Terminator Salvation" could almost pass as a sequel to "Mad Max," which goes to show just how everyone involved is merely going through the motions.
June 22, 2013
This is big empty turgid gunk, coming more from the brainless Transformers school than the Cameron Big Art Pop philoso-candy cloth.

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.

Everything that made the Terminator films great is absent in this film. The violence, the terror, the basic fear is gone ... In this film, children defeat a terminator.
September 29, 2012
Once the screeching din has died down, you won't recall a single line of dialogue, note of music or plot point that wasn't punctuated with an explosion.
June 15, 2012
This franchise, like its villains, has become more machine than man.

That the film's overall basic point has already been conveyed by the closing lines of T2 some 18 years ago shows just how completely superfluous this cash grab is.
