Trivia

Though the film's title is deliberately similar to the 1984 film "The Terminator", the events in the film's storyline are more similar to 1973's "Westworld" and the 2004 revision of "Battlestar Galactica". See more »

Goofs

When they arrive at the empty warehouse, the footsteps continue while nobody is walking - shortly after the sound stops, people are walking but no footsteps are heard. This is on the long shot while they are walking outside. See more »

Pretty Decent for an Asylum Film....
7 June 2010 | by (New Jersey, USA) – See all my reviews

...of course, that's not saying much. The celebrated/hated "mockbuster" studio strikes again with "The Terminators," their least subtle ripoff yet. If the title doesn't make it totally obvious to you, this is a Z-grade "Terminator" wanna-be, with a few bits stolen from "Battlestar Galactica" thrown in for good measure.

The story: sometime in the near future, mankind has developed a lifelike android called a "TR-4," which is designed to perform menial labor and odd jobs for us. The robots are all controlled from a central power source in a satellite that orbits earth. For an unexplained reason, one day the TR-4's (all of which look like Paul Logan of "Mega Piranha" fame) suddenly rise up and begin destroying our cities and killing every human they can get their mechanical hands on. I have to say that the opening scenes here are actually pretty good (by Asylum standards anyway); there's some cool bone-crushing TR-on-human carnage/splatter and even some halfway decent outer space special effects.

After the whiz-bang opening, though, things quickly devolve into the standard Asylum formula, i.e. a lot of bad actors playing unlikable characters who endlessly bicker with one another as they travel through a continuing series of cheap looking set pieces. Occasionally a TR-4 pops up and picks somebody off, everybody screams and runs away, repeat as necessary. The only "name" actors in this flick are Jeremy London (of "Party of Five" fame) and A. Martinez (of "L.A. Law," many moons ago), as a scientist who works for the robot manufacturing company and a small town sheriff, respectively. My favorite character was "Chloe," an cute-as-hell brunette who looks good even when she's running through tunnels covered in dirt and splatters of fake blood. The idea is that this band of plucky survivors need to steal a space ship and get to the satellite that controls the TR's, so they can shut down their power source and de-activate them. Said satellite (which appears to be made entirely of recycled sets from previous Asylum films) is filled with its own set of threats of course (of course there'll be an exo-skeleton, this is a "Terminator" ripoff after all!) and the biggest hoot for me was when they finally found the control panel for the TR-4's, and it was merely a big "ON/OFF" switch. I will not reveal here whether or not our plucky survivors manage to defeat the Big Robot Threat, but you can probably figure it out without my help.

"The Terminators" is the kind of movie you watch on SyFy Channel at 1 in the morning, i.e. when your expectations are extremely lowered. Occasionally it approaches competence, but the six-pack budget quickly brings it back down to earth. Not the worst Asylum film I've seen but far from the best. Let's hope that these Terminators will not be back!!!
