If sensation alone makes a movie work for you, then this one succeeds on those strengths every 15 seconds.

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.

Machines ultra-cool, humans not so cool in McG's noisy actioner.

An entertaining new entry into the Terminator saga (with the exception of either the biggest continuity error of the series or holding back critical information...

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.

Tras la fallida tercera cinta de la lucha entre hombres y máquinas, Terminator Salvation debía ser el capítulo que redimiera y reviviera la saga, sin embargo simplemente es una buena cinta de acción.

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?

Terminator Salvation leaves me thinking it's a rock solid post-apocalyptic action picture that bends over backwards to make itself fit to a pre-existing mythology.

The story is straightforward without being boring. The characters are fully realized.

As with junk food, no matter how much you know it's bad for you, you can't help but enjoy it anyway.

As in the previous two movies, there is, along with the extreme violence and destruction, a lot of wit in the proceedings.

This is the film Terminator fans have been desperate to see. There's a damn good film here.

No slouch, but despite director McG's laudable efforts, number four doesn't improve upon the first three.

McG has sparked a moribund franchise back to life, giving fans the post-apocalyptic action they've been craving since they first saw a metal foot crush a human skull two decades ago.

It has enough pace and excitement to keep action fans switched on.

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.

The Terminator story recharges with a post-apocalyptic jolt of energy. Frantic and full of welcome ties to the past, it also ploughs new ground with purpose.

A pulse-pounding visual spectacle, given its bloodline this is the very least we expect. But when things aren't blowing up, T4 sags - and sags badly.

This is a much more straightforward, all-gunsblazing sci-fi tale of downat-heel humanity at war with some rather nasty machines.

If you can just savour the spectacle and not worry about the tangled plot then it is a more than acceptable summer blockbuster.
