Terminator Salvation - Movie Review

Cast :: Christian Bale, Sam Worthington, Anton Yelchin, Moon Bloodgood.

In the highly anticipated new installment of The Terminator film franchise, set in post-apocalyptic 2018, Christian Bale stars as John Connor, the man fated to lead the human resistance against Skynet and its army of Terminators. But the future Connor was raised to believe in is altered in part by the appearance of Marcus Wright (Sam Worthington), a stranger whose last memory is of being on death row. Connor must decide whether Marcus has been sent from the future, or rescued from the past. As Skynet prepares its final onslaught, Connor and Marcus both embark on an odyssey that takes them into the heart of Skynet's operations, where they uncover the terrible secret behind the possible annihilation of mankind.

John Connor is back in Terminator Salvation, and more pissed than before in the latest reincarnation of the Terminator series. Connor is the believed prophet that is leading the “resistance” in the war against the machines.

Skynet building a massive army of robots, the human race is slowly dwindling in numbers and left without the ability to fight back. The storyline is weak but the effects take over the screen for almost the entire film. The T-600 series and the newest, the T-800s, are all done very well and are pretty darned believable. The cityscape of Skynet’s headquarters, the barren wasteland, all a job well done by the special effects team. The ships and terminators themselves are very, very impressive. The sounds, the explosions, the overall feel of this movie.

Anton Yelchin and Sam Worthington put in the only good performances of the movie, minus the CGI robots, of course. The disappointing acting on the part of Christian Bale was surprising to say the least. The storyline opened very little need for real acting, but Bale failed to bring the Connor attitude. Yelchin hit Reese on the head, though, and Worthington played a superb Marcus.

Terminator: Salvation is a great movie for those of you who can get past the first movies and enjoy whats in front of you. The atmosphere, the CG, the overall feel of the film is great. The action in the movie is very well done and shows off the creativity of MCG and his team. The acting left a bad taste in my mouth but overall it was a solid film. Going into this movie thinking it should be compared to the previous films will leave you disappointed. It’s not a T2-style storyline kind of production, but an action film with a familiar story. MCG did what he could and came out with a winner – enjoy it on that level.
