The trick with keeping a shotgun attached around the arm that Marcus shows Kyle Reese, is used by the older Kyle Reese played by Michael Biehn at the beginning of the original The Terminator (1984), after he saws off the butt to shorten the shotgun he stole from the police squad car. See more »
John Connor knows his father's name only from the records his mother left him. It is not made entirely clear how Skynet could have obtained that information too and how it can identify Kyle Reese by his face (something which is not known even to John). However, it's entirely plausible, given Skynet's access to global information, that it could have obtained such information from records of events shown in previous Terminator films, such as Kyle Reese's arrest record and subsequent filmed interview in The Terminator; this would have given Skynet a picture of his face, which could then be used in conjunction with facial recognition software to identify him. Additionally, during the many interviews between Dr. Silberman and Sarah Connor in the mental institution shown in Terminator 2: Judgment Day, Sarah Connor very openly talks about Kyle Reese and his role in future and past events. Between Kyle Reese's arrest records and Sarah Connor's medical records, Skynet would have all the information it needed. 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.
