Let me start off by saying that Terminator Salvation sucked, but that the fact that it sucked doesn’t mean that is bad so please join the millions of movie goers who will and should watch this highly anticipated blockbuster regardless of what I say about it.
Terminator Salvation serves the full course when it comes to must have scenes and characters in a summer action flick such has high speed chases, military aircraft, a sexy brainless female in tight clothing, Gatling guns, a pregnant wife, end of world theme, rogue robots and things that go bang, pow, kapow and boom!
Humans are the sheep and Skynet is the shepherd
Marcus Wright is a death row inmate who is convinced to give up his body for scientific research after is death. Years later he wakes up in the future to find the world in ruins due to nuclear fallout and his body transformed. Skynet is a computer software-based defense system created by humans that became self aware and decided that humans should be wiped off the face of the earth. Terminator Salvation takes place in the year 2018 after the nukes have fallen and humans are being hunted and exterminated by skynet. The fabled John Connor from previous Terminator movies is now a grown adult who is the head of a global network of resistance fighters aiming to destroy skynet and liberate the human race.
Hello John my name is Marcus
Terminator Salvation made my list of must watch 2009 summer movies for a reason but unfortunately I didn’t enjoy the movie as much as I thought I would. Christian Bale as John Connor to me was a big failure and from entire cast of a high budget summer blockbuster my favorite character was a mute girl named Star. Sam Worthington as Marcus Wright was decent but was brought down by an underwhelming, spineless film with very little creativity and too many awkward albeit iconic Terminator-esque one-liners. This movie can be enjoyed if you allow yourself to be immersed in and wowed by the effects, sights and sounds, just remember to leave your brain at the door before entering the theatre.
“come with me if you want to live” – um no?!? – “I’ll be back”
