I went into this movie hearing that it sucked and wasn’t very good. Dont listen to those reviews! T4 is a fantastic action flick. It is packed to the brim with explosions and well put together action sequences. I will start off by saying that its not better then T2. But in my opinion, its next on the list.
The Story may not be the most complex in the world and the surprise twist you can see coming a mile away (not to mention it was shown in the trailers). But this is a pure popcorn movie. It is fun and just screams “Awesome”.
Christian Bale brings his raw intensity that he brings to most roles he plays. He is the best John Connor in any of the films. But the odd thing is, he doesn’t play the main character in the movie. That part goes to Sam Worthington playing Marcus Wright. He steals every scene he is in and its easy to see why he gets more screen time. Anton Yelchin plays a young Kyle Reese. This role suits him much better then his one in Star Trek. (Of coarse he doesn’t have a stupid accent which helps.)
This is by far the most exciting Terminator cause the action doesn’t stop. It would have been nice to have a little more time with the characters to get to know and care about them. I think they were banking on people already knowing who some of these characters are so they didn’t have to worry about that.
– Sam Worthington proves why he is going to be one of Hollywood’s newest stars.
– Balls to the Walls Action
– A very welcome surprise near the end made me very happy
– More John Connor and his relationships with the other characters would have been nice.
– Helena Bonham Carter was annoying
Terminator Salvation is action film for action fans. If you are looking for deep story, go see something else cause that ain’t here. But i highly recommend it for a fun time at theater.
Overall Rating: 8.0/10
Surprisingly Night at the Museum 2 beat Terminator at the box office this weekend. It made $70 Mil and T4 only took in $51 Mil for a 5 Day total of $65 Mil. My Predictions were way off.
