Trivia

Time travel stories and films such as Back to the Future Part II (1989), Star Trek (2009) and X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) etc. teaches us about the consequences of time travel and that you could erase someone from existence, create paradoxes, alternate realities and alternate timelines. In this film, Kyle Reese travels back to 1984, only to find it is not the 1984 he knows and John and Sarah travel forward across time to alternate 2017, which Skynet did not initiate the nuclear attack in 1997, as of consequence of the timeline being changed.

Goofs

(at around 1h 27 mins) The CHP squads (with an incorrect star logo livery) seen on the Golden Gate Bridge are 2006-16 Chevrolet Impala 9C1s - CHP in real life does not operate the Chevrolet Impala since the vehicle does not meet the payload requirements - their main squad is the Ford Police Interceptor Utility which has been in service since 2013 replacing the discontinued Crown Victoria Police Interceptor which was discontinued in 2011. CHP vehicle maintenance is paid out of the department's expense when a squad goes past 100,000 miles where the department enters into a bidding process to procure fleet replacements. 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.

Though flawed, it was better than I expected...
2 July 2015 | by LambysalambySee all my reviews

The new Terminator wasn't terrible! I'm surprised. Though it had its flaws it was much better then Terminator 3 and Salvation... and I actually enjoyed it mostly. I probably won't be watching it like 30 times like Judgement Day, but its not like I expected it to ever live up to Cameron's work....

First off, the action was good and so was the pace, the film never became boring even with how complex the story was so it certainly gets points for that.

The film itself runs like the greatest hits of the the franchise which is both good and bad.

The pros: Revisiting 1984 (the first terminator timeline) was a lot of fun for obvious reasons.. You get more things like crazy manoeuvres from the T1000 etc and Arnie gets to kick some ass and even be funny at times....

The cons: How many times do they have to repeat lines from the previous films? Sarah Conner says: "Come with me if you want to live" Really? Again? Really? Come on, having that as an obligatory line in each movie is actually annoying. "I'll be back" is just like an obligatory oh, we'll just squeeze that in there, the audience will love that! Nope, not really, see in the first Terminator that had impact! Like the impact of a car coming through the wall! This is there just for the sake of it...

Aside from that, I think JK Simmons character was borderline pointless, you could nearly have cut him out of the movie and barely noticed! A crying shame for such an excellent actor.. Generally the script could have done with more tweaking, some plot towards the end just seemed outright silly, but I will say the chemistry between Arnie and Emilia was actually pretty good!

Overall: It's no Judgement day but you know what, it was actually a decent film and it was great to see Arnie as the Terminator again, and not saying "talk to the hand" . I can see why James Cameron endorsed this as the true sequel to T2...
