    SPOILERS. The army medic has the knowledge and equipment to transplant a heart from a cyborg to a person? Under camouflage netting? Skynet’s stronghold is within walking distance of the rebel base?! The terminator-cycles are designed to allow humans to ride them?? Skynet knows that Reese is in their facility, knows that Reese will go back in time to spawn Connor, and doesn’t kill Reese while he’s at their installation? END OF SPOILERS 10 years 5 months ago

    Great action scenes and great cinematography but the rest of the movie is lacking. No plot, bad acting(you can do better Bale!), too many plot holes. I mean why do terminators install USB plugs on their motor-terminators? 11 years 1 month ago

    From the writing team that gave us Catwoman, The Net and Terminator 3... Doesn't exactly inspire confidence in Terminator Salvation, does it? While I lay plenty of responsibility at director McG's feet, as he did deliver an often-confusing monochrome actioner filled with underdeveloped characters, the problem mostly comes down to premise. If there's value at all in doing a non-time travel Terminator movie set after Judgment Day, then it has to be John Connor's yet-to-be-written victory over Skynet. Why were we fighting to keep Connor alive in all the other films? Show us. What NO ONE asked for is the story of how Connor met Kyle Reese (and as a punchline, how he got that scar). EVEN LESS if it's gonna entail John Connor playing second fiddle to a cyborg with a heart of gold (Chekhov's heart, as it turns out, which isn't a spoiler because I've never seen so many circles drawn around a script item in any movie ever) who gets into way more action than he does. We're supposed to care about this character's redemption arc, but his back story is as underdeveloped as anyone else's. There are a few cool action set pieces, but it's telling the wrong story. 1 month 3 weeks ago
