I really cannot understand all the negative comments about this film. I am a fan of the Terminator series and truly believe that this film stays true to the original story and actually adds to it tremendously. Now we all know how rubbish T3 was and how utterly disappointing that was but the same cannot be said for this. I went into the cinema not knowing anything about what the film may contain and I did not read any reviews before seeing it. I loved it, and my wife, who is not a fan of the series,could not care less but did think it was good not as good as I thought it was I hasten to add <more>
so fans of the series may like it more. For all of you that have not seen this yet, go and watch it. You will not be disappointed.
The values of humanity and humility that John Connor need to learn... (by janyeap)
Wow, an installment of the celebrated franchise, without Arnie oops, unless, he deserves to be credited for the virtual prototype of the T-800 killer machine cameo with the familiar face ! As this film thrusts before us lots and lots of new faces, knocking off Arnie, how will the Terminator fans react to this new installment? Truthfully, I haven't missed him! Hey, there are more advanced and deadlier Terminators in this film on the kill to put us on edge. Even, the motorcycle machine killer is refreshingly imaginative! Besides, this film is not robbing the audience of the series' <more>
central theme - humanity.This fourth installment is just as entertaining and fun – darker for certain, and with a better focus on character development. Christian Bale does a good job as Connor, delivering enormous stamina and credibility to his immature character. Here, we see Connor, not quite close to the predicted 2029 prophesy, but drawing a step closer to fulfilling his destiny as the leader of the human resistance. In his twenties, he now steps into Bale's shoes to offer his new look, his physical skills, and his flawed mental judgment as the Skynet robots become more intelligent, almost non-destructible, and deadlier. The story begins with our introduction to Sam Worthington's Marcus Wright, a death-row inmate, who, under the persuasion and deceit of Helen Bonham Carter's Serena, donated his body to Cyberdyne Corporation. The year is 2003. We are then plunged to the post-apocalyptic 2018 We encounter Connor jumping into a helicopter for a strike at a SkyNet facility while human beings are being hounded and killed by the deadly machines in the human beings' determination to destroy the facility. Even from the moment we see him, it's obvious that we'd be facing a complicating and complex character that is, nonetheless, aware of his destined purpose. Observe how effective Conner is in inspiring the humans. In the midst of the calamity and explosions, the scenes shift to Marcus Wright. Awakes, dazed and hazy initially,he soon snaps out of his blurry state. As he bumps into a Resistance soldier, Anton Yelchin's Kyle Reese and young Star, it would be difficult for the viewers to refrain from smiling. Yep, it's the Kyle Reese in the first Terminator film, the protector and savior of Sarah Connor, and the father of her child! Director McG has smartly created introductions of the three principle characters whose lives must insect to generate the relevant themes for this installment. In a subtle way, it does pay tribute to the first film. Besides, there's much to examine about the unpredictable directions the characters are taking us. Even the state-of-the-art special effects are well crafted to instill fear, hopelessness and uncertainties, associated with devastation, mess, and despair, scene after scene. In a way, they serve as metaphors to Connor's personality and feelings... a rapture of havoc. Yep, the special effects do also provide the feeling and smell of metal and death... cold, as cold as the way Connor treats Wright! Can righteous cause be justified without considering its ultimate effects on mankind? While following the story, I have been struck by the realization of the vital and important relevance of Wright's story in this film. Frankly, it has dawned on me Wright's story does target the interesting theme of 'second chance.' Also, his psyche, and his decision-making choices settle onto another great theme - the important value of humane wisdom of heartfelt decision-making. What can Connor learn from Wright? And how important is that? Director McG has succeeded wonderfully for not only giving us another too familiar and bombastic "terminator action film, but a story that allows the viewers to search, analyze and understand the different forms of leadership decision-making in human beings. We can see that Connor has a lot to learn before he can really succeed in moving from second-in-command to his ultimate and destined leadership. Even the brief take of the photo of Linda Hamilton's Susan Connor is a reminder that she has developed into a stronger and wiser character when she arrived at the South of the Border.This film has surged up my excitement for the next installment to the celebrated series. I love this film! It does make me put on my thinking cap to examine the story much deeper than what flows visually before my eyes!
OK, OK. Just saw this at a screening, and all I can say is: Wow.This Terminator goes beyond the previous movie installments and really shows you how entertaining movies can be. To start off, the special effects were top-notch and action packed; Transformers 2 is going to have serious competition with Salvation for sure. The movie certainly delivers in all aspects of action and CG, but I wont linger on with the special effects, you will just have to see the movie your self.As for the story....Well, the first 2 Terminator movies were for the most part chase movies, where this movie really <more>
expanded on the Terminator franchise. In the first Terminator movies, they give brief scenes of the future with relative cheesiness, where in Salvation, it shows the world that I thought would be cool to see after watching the first Terminator, which is: the future. So, the story was cool, I won't give anything away, but I thought it was awesome to see a war against machines, rather than one terminator chasing one person, like in the first Terminator; of course the first Terminator movies were better, but I just liked this adaption very much as well.As for the acting: Christian Bale was a convincing John Connor and did a great job playing the leader of the resistance, whereas if Nick Stahl the John Connor from T3 was in Christian Bale's place...that would have been funny, and not in a good way. Sam Worthington pulled off an outstanding performance, but...the rest of the cast wasn't as great as the leading actors...which was OK, but it was the only downer to the movie. McG didn't disappoint in delivering a solid action movie, although I do think they could have got a better director. / Soooo...overall this was a great popcorn-action-summer movie that is awesome, and probably anyone will enjoy it, whether you are a Terminator fan or not.
Not understanding the bad press at all. (by roarrestored89)
I just got back from seeing a midnight screening of the newest installment in The Terminator franchise, going into it with an open mind after witnessing the debacle that was T3 several years ago. Having said this, I honestly felt at though this movie did a fantastic job of translating the visions of the future that were set up in the original Terminator and T2 and fleshing out a feature-length film of them. While there indeed a few "what in the hell were they thinking" moments in the chase scenes, I felt that on the whole, the movie was a wonderful success, gripping me in a way that <more>
T3 never came close to. I truly hope prospective viewers give this film the shot that it rightly deserves and go into it with an open mind, and are able to just sit back and enjoy the ride...its a terrific one, trust me. Leaving the theater, I honestly felt as though this one gave the first two a run for their money as a film, as much as it pained me to say it. Truly a magnificent job breathing life into a series that could have very easy been done in once and for all with another terrible installment.
With the unmistakable collision of metal, the barrage of artillery and ordinance, the scorched temperature of engines, the burning stench of gasoline and rotting corpses, and the precisioned whirling of mechanized parts...the Machines have returned cue Terminator Drums .It is 2018 and the land lays waste from the nuclear toll of Judgment Day...mankind's legacy. But amidst these ruins are the hubs of Skynet assemblers and hunter killers vs. the pockets of Resistance tacticians and strategists. The New Machines T800, Harvester, Aerstat, Hydrorobot, MotoTerminator and the familiar HK are <more>
varied in their capabilities and arsenal but all programmed towards the collection and eradication of humans. On land, sea and air the Resistance is well armed with conventional weapons. Although they are seemingly fragmented and scattered, they are committed, organized and held together by the band-aid transmissions of Radio Free Resistance. Huddling around the warmth of burning drums and radio broadcasts, the freedom fighters listen to the messages of hope and guidance which strengthen their resolve.Over the years we've endured the rambunctious growth of the juveniles Furlong and Stahl but now is the time of the prophet warrior. From the wired intensity of Christian Bale's performance as John Connor one can appreciate he's acting on an adrenaline edge, and just a hair trigger away from his infamous off-screen tirade. If Jackman's method of preparation was a cold shower, then Bale must have submerged in the ice of an adamantium pool my bad . Nevertheless as the Leader of the Resistance, Bale/Connor preaches the anthem and might of the indomitable human spirit. The secondary players hit their mark strong. On his quest towards the Resistance is the nomadic enigma Marcus Wright Sam Worthington . Along the way he encounters a brash and young Kyle Reese Anton Yelchin of the LA Resistance Branch. Decent supporting performances also by Common, Bryce Dallas Howard, Helena Bonham Carter and Moon Bloodgood. But I could have done without Michael Ironside, like the 80s relic mad dog Richter, barking out his unheeded commands.The action and chase sequences are frantic and visceral as the carnage ensues. The special effects of the unrelenting and menacing Terminators were amped up to both impress and frighten. We've all seen many action scenes of this genre before. But McG's culls the best together painted with a fresh coat of metallic vs. flesh, cold steel vs hope and desperation. His film respectfully pays dues to its iconic origins with familiar soundbites, albeit too cute, but the fans roared its approval. Since Cameron's groundbreaking T & T2, we have waited long to witness this story of the apocalyptic battleground for man's survival. Kudos to McG, Bale and Co for finally delivering Salvation and this vision.Note: IMO negative reviews compare too much with predecessors or genre bests. Surely The Road Warrior great film did not invent the car chase scene. Nevertheless Terminator Salvation faithfully supports the core franchise's arcing story and timeline.
ignore the critics and see this- you'll get more bang for your buck! (by suicidalicecreamtruckdriver)
Yet again, the critics are extremely wrong. They say it doesn't have a plot: but yet the story is strong enough to sustain throughout the movie and keeping interest. The set-up for this movie may seem dour, but it is effective with smarter ideas than transformers ever came up with. Christian Bale and Sam Worthington were a partnership only imagined in heaven- but in this, they are so focused and convincingly dedicated. Even though they have few scenes together, this can stop each other outperforming each other, a fault made in the Dark Knight and the Devi Wears Prada. The special effects <more>
are amazing, with Anton Yelchin giving another great performance since Star Trek. I enjoyed this film by walking in with an optimistic view and with the expectation to only be entertained. I was not expecting 'James Cameron' masterpiece. The soundtrack must be mentioned and praised- clearly one of the best soundtracks of the year. It's main competition being the okay Transformers sequel- so I say see Terminator Salvation if you just want to enjoy yourself and have a good time. People will enjoy this movie- what more can you ask? Similar to the reviews Australia earned- watch the movie for what it is, not what it should've been. So ignore the critics and see this- you'll get more bang for your buck! Entertainment: 10/10 As a film: 8/10 Acting: 9/10 Directing: 8/10 Soundtrack: 10/10 CGI: 9/10 OVERALL: ****1/2 stars, with it being entertaining and well acted. Who cares about anything else? Critics are wrong with this.
I liked it better than I expected, and was far less disappointed in comparison than other fans seem to have been. (by Elswet)
Wow, where do we start with a franchise film so rich in history...and so riddled with continuity errors? The time line problems began with the very first sequel, directed by Cameron himself, and perpetuated with T3. why then, is everyone so freaked by time line errors in T4? Depending on which line to which you subscribe, T4 still deviates vastly from BOTH sequels and begins a new alternative reality spin all its own.And then there was the highly publicized expletive-filled Bale rant broadcast over and over and over ad nauseum. Upon seeing the film, I can better understand why that <more>
happened...this is a GRITTY film, full of angst and dancing testosterone. As "worked up" as Bale must have had to have been in order to pull off these angst-filled scenes one after the other after the next , he exhibited amazing control in not HITTING the guy who blew the scene for him. I'm no longer upset or offended by his diatribe.That brings us to the movie. Well, yes, there are problems with it, and many state that this film brings little to the franchise history and instead contributes to the growing list of errors and problems with the franchise, but I have to disagree.This work, for me, demonstrates an intent to give us millions of machines marching en masse on human survivors in the attempt to quell a birthrate upsurge of the pestilence which has somehow managed to take control of its world...Mankind. The promise for something better is not only present due to how little this movie actually contributes, but by the actions and deeds therein.There are several contrivances, and truthfully they were rewriting the script as it was being filmed due to Bale's demands, but all in all and all things considered , this is an enjoyable film that not only is better on second viewing, but manages to ingratiate itself into the library of Terminator franchise films or will when it's out on DVD in an unrated, extended director's cut edition, that is .I liked it better than I expected, and was far less disappointed in comparison than I was with the Star Trek reboot.It rates a 7.8/10 from...the Fiend :.
Not as heartfelt as the first two, but a good effort. (by trantor2nd)
Newcomers complained about needing knowledge from the previous installments. I felt that all the basics were recapped. Also, there were many parallelisms/ homages to the previous films. This movie measures up with the action and special effects but lacks the expected pacing of a Terminator movie. I've come to expect a progressive and relentless increase in intensity as the movie progresses but this one decreases in scale. The ending also leaves much to be desired, as even the third movie had a better one. Planning this as a new trilogy should have gave them leeway to make an ending that <more>
measures up to the previous movies, or even to the rest of this film. As it is, the ending makes T4 a complete episode in itself, with little weight to carry over to the next movies and make them a thematic whole. I'd score the first half of the movie an edge-of-your-seat 10, the end battle a passable 7, the epilogue a hokey 4. The music by Danny Elfman also seems less than an improvement over Brad Fiedel's previous score. The movie didn't seem to suffer much from the PG rating. Less blood and gore but much more explosions. All in all, the movie was inspired but lacked heart. I'd still look forward to T5.
I went into this movie with a 'blah' state of mind. I didn't think it was going to be all that great and I was worried that McG would turn the movie into "Tnsformers" and make the action so fast paced that it would be hard to follow. Or that it would be "Charlies Angels" Terminator style. Nope. This movie was frickin awesome! Well cast, well acted, great story line and while watching it all I could think of was, "This is Apocalypse Now set in 2018 with robots in place of the Vietcong." Hands down this was the best movie I've seen this summer. It <more>
beat the pants off "X-Men" and "Star Trek" combined. Christian Bale got his Batman voice going a few times but for the most part it didn't matter. The series could end now with no need for the 5th one already in the works because it came full circle. Go see it!
