Was intended to be the first of a new Terminator "Future War Trilogy", all done by McG, but the films poor performance and reception led to McG being fired and replaced before the next two films ever came to fruition. Instead, a new trilogy is planned to begin with Terminator Genisys (2015). See more »
When John Connor takes off on the chopper in the beginning of the movie, he never put on his safety restraints. He never removes his hands from the controls so he could not put it on in flight. After he crashes upside down, he is held in his seat upside down by the belt he never put on. See more »
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) 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.
