The Terminator is Back with a bang in this re-invented vision of the classic franchise.
Getting straight to the point - this is a summer blockbuster so you cannot realistically expect the greatest story line, characterisation or even acting. The purpose of this film is to entertain.....and oh' my, does do serve it's purpose!
Now set in a bleak, post Judgement Day world, Skynet's army of killer machines have risen from the ashes. Expect to see a whole host of "never seen before" pre-T800 terminators that operate on land, in the air and underwater......and get the chance to see Arnie as the T800 fresh of the production line in a brief yet satisfying appearance.
The film offers constant references to T2 with even John Connor giving us a blast of his old stereo with Guns N Roses' "You Could Be Mine".
McG has done a great job to re-invent the Terminator world and whilst it will never be on a par with Cameron's original classics, it does a fine job in sweeping Terminator 3's confusing plot under the carpet and standing as a sequel to T2 whilst being a prequel to the original Terminator.......yes it can play with your mind.....
