Good action sequences will satisfy the adrenaline junkies and lots of throwbacks to Terminator films of yore will make the Terminator fans happy. There are actually parts of a good movie in here, but the focus is in the wrong place.
It could have all been a lot worse and with some imaginative new Terminators, a great score some thrilling action set-plays, critics slating the film will be proven harsh as box office results and public opinion soon come in.
An at times directionless plot and some one-dimensional characters (one actress is simply around to appear pregnant it seems), but loads of action and loud explosions. You weren't expecting more than that, were you?
Salvation is clearly aimed at a younger audience than its predecessors. The carnage is surprisingly bloodless, there's virtually no cussing and several scenes were clearly conceived with one eye on the PlayStation.
