TERMINATOR SALVATON (2009)
I've read some reviews of the latest Terminator series, Terminator Salvation. Some reviews ranged from poor to mediocrely poor, overall ratings was mere 39%. So I was expecting the worst when I entered an SM Cinema to watch TS.
Surprisingly I had a blast, had fun and enjoyed thoroughly the latest Terminator film. Lots of references to the earlier Terminator films. Anton Yelchin played a young Kyle Reese in TS also played a young Chekov in Star Trek (2009)...the Star Trek movie tagline is 'The Future Begins' while the TS movie tagline is 'The End Begins'. The CGI image of Arnold Schwarzenneger was incorporated to a body builder's body to look like the first T-800 in the first Terminator film...some find it funny and hilarious while I say it's amazing how those genuises at ILM did it.
The origin of John Connors' scar on his face as seen in the post-apocalyptic scenes in Terminator 1 and 2 is shown in TS. The trademark movie lines 'I'll Be Back' and 'Come with me if you want to live' is there in TS.
Actress Linda Hamilton's voice is also featured in TS as a recorded voice of Sarah Connors. The actor Michael Papajohn is seen in TS as a baddie who wanted to rape the sexy pilot but got shot in the balls instead is the actor who played the alleged killer of Peter Parker's Uncle Ben in Tobey Macguire's Spider-man.
Although Terminator Salvation has lots of flaw, a flawed storyline and lacking 'the heart' of Terminator 1 and Terminator 2, the film is still enjoyable to watch and behold...I got a kick out of the giant terminator when two robot motorbikes came out of the giant robot's legs ! very cool ! Terminator Salvation has lots of wonderment to offer specially Christian Bale's and Sam Worthington's performances are outstanding.
I am looking forward to Terminator 5 and I will be eagerly awaiting the origin of T-1000 (the mercurial Terminator played by Robert Patrick in Terminator: Judgement Day). Forget about the T-X, it's a bummer.
my personal ratings - 4.5 out of 5 Biscuits Sphere: Related Content
