Did You Know?


Ever since Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991), the T-800 portrayed by Arnold Schwarzenegger has not killed a human being. However, it is possible that the driver of the semi tanker truck that Pops blows up dies. See more »


The bus scene on the Golden Gate is wrong on so many levels. First, the bus is a rear engine model known as a "pusher". It is evident by the lack of grill in the front for a radiator. As the name sounds, the engine is in the very back of the bus. The differential points rearward, rather than forward. As a result, the drive shaft isn't present in the section of the bus forward of the rear axle. However, they show John Connor grabbing the phantom drive shaft just behind the front axle. Secondly, if this was a front engine model and John actually managed to break the drive shaft it would not catapult the bus. Mythbusters debunked this myth several years ago with a car. Third, when the bus does flip it lands on the back end. In this shot you can clearly see the drive train of a rear engine model. The cg guys forgot that they needed to use a front engine model so that they would have a drive shaft to use for the bus flip. See more »

Kyle Reese: [narrating] Before they died, my parents told me stories about how the world once was; what it was like long before I was born; before the war with the machines. They remembered a green world, vast and beautiful, filled with laughter and hope for the future. It's a world I never knew. By the time I was born, all this was gone.

Should I be ashamed for LOVING THIS!
25 June 2015 | by See all my reviews

I am a massive Terminator 1 and 2 fan, I disliked 3 and 4 a lot and I really thought this would be terrible as well!

However I turned out to be wrong! Dead Wrong!

This film has the best Arnold character of them all! He is the most 'human' towards Sarah and I really loved that connection, I can see many people liking it also. It was reminiscent of John Connor and Arnold from T2 which I just saw today... I remember seeing the first trailer and having many problems. I thought the story line was too complicated and wasn't respectful of the older films and I thought the visuals were bad.

I was wrong in both cases. The story pays massive respect to James Camerons first two classics! And it wasn't complicated for me. It was a fun story and kept my eyes on the screen. Also the visuals... wow the visuals... I know people said that we will never be shocked again by visuals like we were in T2 and the first Jurassic Park! But the young T800 looks too good to ignore. Wow! The best animation I've ever seen, I can't see the difference between him and the real one.

This is a fun, humorous, emotional action flick that shouldn't be ignored! I loved it! And you know what, I'm not ashamed! Alan Taylor deserves praise!

P.S. I love the soundtrack, I hand it to Lorne Balfe who I know makes great soundtracks from Assassins creed!
