Terminator Salvation (2009)
OK, OK. Just saw this at a screening, and all I can say is: Wow.
This Terminator goes beyond the previous movie installments and really shows you how entertaining movies can be. To start off, the special effects were top-notch and action packed; Transformers 2 is going to have serious competition with Salvation for sure. The movie certainly delivers in all aspects of action and CG, but I wont linger on with the special effects, you will just have to see the movie your self.
As for the story....Well, the first 2 Terminator movies were for the most part chase movies, where this movie really expanded on the Terminator franchise. In the first Terminator movies, they give brief scenes of the future with relative cheesiness, where in Salvation, it shows the world that I thought would be cool to see after watching the first Terminator, which is: the future. So, the story was cool, I won't give anything away, but I thought it was awesome to see a war against machines, rather than one terminator chasing one person, like in the first Terminator; of course the first Terminator movies were better, but I just liked this adaption very much as well.
As for the acting: Christian Bale was a convincing John Connor and did a great job playing the leader of the resistance, whereas if Nick Stahl(the John Connor from T3) was in Christian Bale's place...that would have been funny, and not in a good way. Sam Worthington pulled off an outstanding performance, but...the rest of the cast wasn't as great as the leading actors...which was OK, but it was the only downer to the movie. McG didn't disappoint in delivering a solid action movie, although I do think they could have got a better director. =/ Soooo...overall this was a great popcorn-action-summer movie that is awesome, and probably anyone will enjoy it, whether you are a Terminator fan or not.
