For a franchise that's been losing steam for the past 23 years, this film really did a great job in bringing some new energy to the Terminator-franchise.

It has great cinematography, great action sequences and a breathtaking score by Hans Zimmer and to top it off, it has Arnold who - even though he looks older - is nowhere near obsolete. ;-)
