It's not anything special, but it wasn't awful. However, there were some really awful moments like the CGI Arnold (WHAT THE FUCK), Christian Bale overacting again, and the ridiculous and unnecessary love subplots that ultimately go nowhere. It was also a major copout when they blow up the entire Skynet place than you hear voice over saying that there is more like this all over the world. Also, with the first 2 you get a real sense of hopelessness which does not exist anywhere in this movie.

A plot-hole filled mess from a story standpoint. Some of the action sequences are really impressive and the Terminator designs and sound effects are quite incredible. Still the intelligence that was present in Terminator and T2 has been completely lost, replaced instead with video-game quality contrived plot lines that entirely on complete and utter chance. Leaving you wondering: this is the best idea a genius computer could come up with? Seriously? It's better than T3 and the TV show though.

Not awful, just generic and pointless. Apparently our dystopian future consists of MTV action sequences and action-figure physics. Instead of tiresome winks at T1 and T2, they should have injected the visceral, thudding action sequences they contained. Worthington and his journey is the only thing worth paying attention to, yet that also is mangled in the noisy, confusing mess of the final third.

Terminator Salvation is an embarassing, verbose, redundant and superfluous attempt to revive the already perished and stagnant series. Why Bale snapped over this is beyond me. Arnold Schwarzenegger makes a cameo appearance in full CGI glory, but the entire experience is indisputably retarded. McG's vision of the war-torn future and battlefield is full of detestable and abhorrent explosions, ash and flames that are in the end insufficient in essence. An extensive letdown overall.

Just as I can direct my feces into the toilet every morning, so too can McG "direct" a film. And, just as McG's name seems to be missing a few important letters, so too does this film seem to be missing somthing that someone who maybe spent more time paying attention in film school than using his 3-letter name to pick up chicks could have brough to the series. (sorry for the run-on) Still, Bale tries hard, and terminators running about the screen killing people almost always guarantees goodness.

A disappointment. It's not a terrible movie (though it can be retarded, ie. boarding a submarine by jumping out of an aircraft into the ocean), just...underwhelming. While the action is cool and Worthington and Yelchin shine, the movie never engages. It's soulless, like watching someone play videogames. Bale kinda phones it in, though he's not given much to work with. Common is LOL bad. This'll be a mediocre trilogy if they don't hire a real filmmaker next time. Stan Winston is sorely missed.

Bale's acting = fail. Writing = fail. Using original theme in credits = fail. Original action scenes = fail. Common's acting = fail doesn't even cover it. Trying to use Arnie = acceptable. Succeeding in using Arnie = fail. Exoskeleton wearing a bandana in one scene = check (WTF?) Yet, I was still entertained to a certain extent. The set design was great and Worthington was a joy to watch.

A decent popcorn action flick, but nothing more, really. The fights are well choreographed and the stunts are fun. The writing is awful - flat characters, sappy dialogue, plotholes, etc. But the absolute worst is the way that the film presents Skynet as some sort of James Bond supervillain - all exposition and ridiculous pomp - instead of the ruthless and calculatingly efficient predators that gave the first two films their menace. Also, bandana wearing terminators? Hilarious.

A huge disappointment. The story was just pointless, nothing left of the old Terminator charme. The action was alright, mediocre. It just didn't grip me at all. It even reminded me of the matrix sequel (which was awful) where somebody thought: "Hey, let's put some motorbikes here!"...and baaam you got a carchase. Same crap here. The action is trying to fill the lack of the script. But that's not the way to push a story forward...

A major disappointment for 'Terminator' fans, if not casual action or sci-fi fans. McG's loud and rather obnoxious future war treatment on the franchise is superficial, one-note, and severely lacking strong storytelling and performances of its actors. I like Sam Worthington, a few of the ideas thrown in, but ultimately it feels lifeless, and fully without suspense or emotion. The action is redundant and purposeless, Bale is a letdown, and that CGI Arnold cameo: abrupt, fake, and embarrassing.

A mediocre film that, like its immediate predecessor, is heavy on action set-pieces and lacking any engaging story. Plot contrivances abound and every twist is broadcast beforehand. Worse than that, the stakes have never felt lower, as John Connor punches terminators and skydives into the ocean. The "gritty" future is actually lush and bright, and there are several sequences that showcase nature reclaiming the land. An entertaining movie, but one that is ultimately devoid of suspense.

The fourth feature film directed by McG, and he fully lives down to his filmography. He's turned in a dreadful, flavorless exercise in effects excess and narrative stalled on the "bludgeoning" setting. He's certainly done nothing to make sure that his film makes a lick of sense. Every iron-thump step of the way, there's a new a plot detail that flatly, painfully doesn't bear up to any sort of scrutiny. What is logical, sensible, plausible is continually dispatched in favor of what is cool.

Mc G did come through with this amazing tale. Visuals, dialogue and acting were top notch. What pisses me off is these critics say that there is no story involved. Clearly the story is about connors attempt to find and rescue his teenage father kyle reese who goes back in time and tangos with sarah connor. throughout the whole movie that is johns main priority and the journey that takes him there is an action packed, and sometimes scary little number. the robots were scarier and Bale is the best

I'll admit to being an easily-to-please slut when it comes to action sci-fi, but I found some stuff to enjoy here. It utterly lacks the humanity and ideas of T1 and T2, and John Connor is a very flat character, but I liked Marcus Wright, Kyle Reese, and Blair. The semi-monochromatic visual style catches the eye and there are some cool action scenes. I dug the general aesthetic and bleak atmosphere.

Standard, undercooked summer fare. The whole thing feels like a giant prologue, not a stand alone film. Character development is.....well, I guess "is" sums it up, and the interesting ideas are lost in the noise. That said, it delivers on the action goods, and is enough to keep the franchise puttering along, even though it stopped needing sequels two films ago. Bale turns in a fairly good performance, and the premise is enough to earn this a B. Just don't expect anything comparable to T1 or 2

The only proper way to enter a submarine is by jumping out of a helicopter into... the... middle... of... the... fucking... ocean - and hoping that by some miracle you get picked up! Also: CGI Arnold acts as good as real life Arnold (yay!), but has fewer catchphrases (boo!). Also #2: Christian Bale needs to act more and shout less.

If the first two Terminator films were retarded, had a baby with a retarded FPS game, and the baby was retarded squared, it would be this film. OK action, terrible execution. Dumber than a daytrip to dumbland. With the excellence of the two first films to build on, you've got to expect more. Fortunately Worthington and particularly Yelchin come to save the day, deliver excellent performances and elevate the film from barely watchable to almost OK. Since when was John Connor so unlikeable?

Utterly humourless, lacking all dint of characterisation, and featuring awful, wooden dialogue, this seems to have been written and directed by a terminator. Although it may have been wrapped in the clothing of resistance, this is little more than a militaristic glorification of firepower. The effects might be slickly impressive, but the filming, editing and overall style are of the most fashionably meaningless, jarring, videogame-like kind. Avoid.

Even after unpromising reviews and scores I was eager to enjoy it. I simply needed some beam of light to follow, I don't know, a good acting, a hottie, a subplot or an interesting stunt would have lead me the way. What we get looks exactly like Mad Max rip-off B-movies of the nineties. It's beyond me why Mcg thinks every explosion will cause a shrapnel that will bounce meters away from the humans around and jump to something else to cause an even bigger explosion.

An indulgent action flick for those of us who like action for the sake of it's self--I do! Succeeds in being tense, providing tons of explosions, high speed chase scenes, gunning and beatings, and otherwise just sheer badass-ery. It's also not often we get some supersized, over-the-top sci-fi. Not of any interest to people who can't shut off their brain and enjoy the ride, but for those of us who can it's sure to get the man juices flowing.

Another big embarrassment, be it one with only enough content to properly fill the four minute trailer. Bale seriously underperforms seeming stiff and characterless throughout, no more so than when contrasted to the ironically much more emotive Worthington. It feels like McG (seriously crap name by the way) interpreted the original series as defective rather than endearingly silly. It turns out that in a bleak hostile world populated by killing machines, survival is a dull and very corny affair.

I like where they took this. Being the only one of these to not feature Arnold, a lot of people didn't care for it. However, this is the only one to really divert from the same plot lines of the first one, takes place well outside the other's timelines and it was kind of refreshing to see someone else take the lead in these movies. I'm not the biggest fan of Worthington, but him and Bale are quite solid in this. Salvation is nowhere near the shit show people make it out to be, at all.

Mixed feeling on this one. Emotionally it mostly falls flat (with a few small moments owing to Bale's acting that work). However, the action scenes and depiction of the Future War in general are pretty damn good, and parts of the movie are palpably creepy, which is good because of the horror movie roots.

Unlike the first three Terminator films, Salvation is simply not all that exciting or entertaining. It is loud and has a lot of explosions and action scenes, but I found myself disappointed that it didn't follow how the future was depicted in earlier films. That did look like it could be a fun watch, but what we got was a bunch of action scenes where Terminators don't aim to kill, and humans acting more like boring machines than ever before. It's an unnecessary film you have no reason to watch.

Completely mediocre with stupid plot execution and poorly thought out technical details like skynet making human friendly console terminals conveniently for resistance fighters to hack into. There's guns, explosions, and some interesting scenes involving flying. McG is a terrible director though and he's like an even worse Michael Bay but a lot of the shittiest bits and pieces in this film is due to the crappy writers. Also Bale looked bored and wooden throughout.

Although Judgment Day has in fact occurred, the future for which John Connor (Christian Bale) was prepared has been partly altered by the appearance of a stranger named Marcus Wright (Sam Worthington). Connor must determine if Wright has been rescued from the past, or sent from the future. As the machines prepare for a final battle, Connor and Wright delve deep into Skynet's heart, uncovering a secret that could lead to the annihilation of mankind.

I thought that Terminator Salvation was shot attractively, but missed the mark with the plot. Some scenes actually reminded me of Black Hawk Down visually.

Underrated movie - what Transformers could have been. Action was breathtaking and clear, not just a 'lets see how fast I can edit'-fest. Focused on main characters instead of introducing too many - good. Acting was good. Despite the slamming Christian Bale is getting for mailing in his performance, I thought he was just as interesting as in the Batmans with a much less annoying voice. Story made sense, peaked well and tied in pretty well with previous movies. I was pleasantly surprised :)

Terminator Salvation is a dark, futuristic, post-apocalyptic war movie reminding me of the Matrix sequels a couple of times. It's got a pretty bad screenplay and uninspired acting, but there's some good action especially towards the end. The main problem with Terminator 4 is its lack of a main villain, which only mildly turns up towards the end in the form of a CGI Arnold. Terminator Salvation is good popcorn material, but it doesn't feel like a Terminator film and adds little to its franchise.

The only good thing I can say about this movie is how it looks, the post apocalyptic future, but it is not true to the franchise at all, it was hilariously bad at times, like the repeating of the lines, "I'll be back," and "come with me if you want to live." CGI Arnold, and a poorly executed moral tale to top it all off.

Walking out of our midnight-showing theater, my friends and I were discussing the film. I stopped for a moment, and said, "Wait, why didn't Skynet just kill Kyle Reese, their #1 enemy, instead of using him as bait to catch #2, John Connor? I think one's more important than the other..." My friends were speechless. That HUGE plot hole is indicative of T:S as a whole. Terribly thought out, ludicrous, simply awful. Oh, and Bale's not even good in this one.

Happily, the trailer has music, and isn't entirely live audio from the movie, because if it was, nobody would know what was going on. I will preface this by saying, I like loud, but T:S is obnoxiously loud; loud to the point that it detracts from the film itself. Ahhnold's CGI-ness was enough to make me mark out a little, was probably the apex of the flick from an excitement standpoint, just seeing him. It bothered me that, by the end, nothing had changed. You think they blew up Skynet? SYKE!

It started out pretty good, with great visuals, a clever background story, and nice action. But as it went along, the plot had more holes than a Swiss cheese. A sensible story was sacrificed completely for over-the-top action. Some of the things that disappointed me most were the cheap references to T2, including CG Arnold, nearly indestructible humans, naked bomber pilot chicks, robots with human hearts, and the absence of danger of being near a nuclear explosion. I could go on for a while...

A couple of problems right up front: 1)Why cast an actress as good as Bryce Dallas Howard and waste her, 2)Marcus's voiceover at the end was gay and way too on the nose and 3) I hate the magical negro/adorable moppet cliche a great deal. And as a matter of preference, I prefer Nick Stahl's John Connor to Christian Bale's.

Seeing a new Terminator movie is welcome enough no matter what it's about. The biggest complaint, no Arnold Schwarzenegger. If I have a Terminator movie, as much as I like Christian Bale, I want more than just a cameo of the man who's known as the "Tuh-min-atuh". The story was okay but it seemed that it suffered from a wandering plot at times and it didn't keep my attention the way a Terminator should.

I know people live in a post-apocalyptic world and try to get rid of the machines in the ass, but there should have been some humor to let us to take some fresh air. However, I liked it somehow.

some very good action scenes, special effects and such. but, the planned twist can be guessed after the lame prelude. some huge gaps in storytelling, especially concerning the john connor who is portrayed as an asshole and mentally challenged person. bad ending (what does "the second chance" narrative got to with terminators, is it an allegory for humanity; if so it does not hold up) still much better than t3 I would say.

Great cut scenes. I couldn't wait for the movie to start. Then the end credits rolled. Sigh.

Seriously not good. Not even the over the top action could save it.

Just really bad. There isn't a scene in this movie that you couldn't find a hole in. Bale was just yelling constantly in his Batman voice. Action scenes that should have been cool had way too many dumb things in them. For as much as Skynet knew they made just horribly inept decisions. The ending was unbelievably cheesy. The only positive worth mentioning was Yelchin and Worthington's performances. Just re-watch the first two if you need a Terminator fix.

Christian Bale was a bad casting decision. Wish they would have kept more of the look and feel of T1 or T2 instead making it just another standard big-explosions-summer-film (had the feel of Transformers, which is not a good thing). Oh well, at least it helps me forget that T3 even exists.

"Salvation" is so far the most serious film in the series. The story is characterized by an armored doomsday seriousness that actually suits the creepy universe quite well.
