yeah, but I really don't care.. I will see this on saturday and judge for myself.
I fully suspect that this will make anywhere from $60 to $90 million over friday thru sunday and possibly monday.. I also expect this to make anywhere from $ 400 to $700 million worldwide when all is said and done
This movie was alright. I just got back from seeing it and I can safely say that it's a fun action movie. The script/dialogue is really terrible at times; cringe-worthy even, but I found the acting to be good enough to carry the scenes with poor dialogue. This movie felt a little strange, as though certain things were cut out, which'd make sense since it had to get a PG-13 rating. The film certainly doesn't feel like a "Terminator" film (like T/T2 or even T3), but it had a distinct visual style/look, which I appreciated. They added a bunch of new Skynet robots for this installment, and in doing so, I kind of missed the good 'ole T-800 versus man action. For a human vs. Skynet war, I found there to be a lack of larger scale battle, which I hoped for. As for music, they use the "dun dun dun dun dun" classic Terminator theme a couple times, but only briefly; I would've appreciated more of that kind of score. Arnold's "cameo" was cool.
So, all in all, those are my scattered thoughts on the film. I give it a 6.5/10. It's no Terminator or Terminator 2, but it leaves potential for well... more potential in a sequel. The shoddy script/story and lack of depth make this film a decent action movie, but not a lot more.
The movies problem is that its in the unfortunate position of needing to be better than T3 in order to continue the series and then at the same time having to live up to the legacy of T2. Its a good action movie, something that you won't walk away disappointed in, but its not...Terminator, which I don't mind, but hard core fans might not be too enthusiastic about. Like mentioned, the script leaves a bit to be desired, and quite honestly, Christian Bale needs to calm down and take a breath or else his career might go the way of Tom Cruise with his mistaken of intensity with acting. Anton Yelchin and Sam Worthington carry the movie, and I look forward to seeing how the series proceeds and builds off of this installment in the future.
The only thing thats with you your whole life is complete and utter darkness.
To me it was the 3rd best "Terminator" movie followed by T2 @ #1 and T1 @ #2.
I liked the story but i wanted more. Like i wanted the movie to phisically/visually incorporate time travel in the story in some way. And not just mention it.
And I wanted to see Kyle and John interact more as odd as their relationship is. For example, out of many examples i'd like to see, who'd respect who more really. Imagine taking orders from your son, a commander whom is almost twice your age.
The visual effects were great but i expected something a bit more along the lines of the hardcore Skynet war i saw at the beginning of "T2". Like something full scale rather than the many small skirmishes seen in "Salvation". CGI Ahnold was impressive but one could still tell it was computer animated. More smoke or steam should've been used or something.
I thought the "I'll be back" was chessy but then i thought the T-800 from [email protected] got that from Jonn since John was the one who programmed it and sent it back.
John's facial scaring just brought me back to "T1" where that films' future John Conner, the resistance leader, had the same exact scar on his face after you saw it after he put his binoculars down.
I loved the mechanical sounds that huge Terminator robot was making at that rebel, gas station, bunker, place it brutally infiltrated. It just sounded so loud and so factory like and ominous and cold.
I think there may be a sequel. Maybe where Reese gets sent back and then the sequel after that will be when Skynet is finally defeated and wiped off the map forever either by a rebellion victory or by somehow outsmarting the machines time-wise and obliterate the idea of Skynet somehow even before the company even happens.

Just saw this movie and, not being a big fan of Terminator, I liked it alot. This makes me want to go back and watch Terminator 1 and 2 again. Christian Bale was OK in this but he was really the 3rd best in the movie. Sam Worthington as Marcus stole the movie and "Chekov" as Reese was also really good.
7+/10 Better than Wolverine, but not better than Star Trek

Just saw it, thought it was great, a good addition to the series, it was better than 3, and i enjoyed that one.Love the end that pays homage to the orginal and T2 (that's all i'm going to say cause i don't want to spoil it.) It does suffer from they typical terminator flaws( but if skynet did what they should then there wouldn't be a movie.)
I liked the movie. If each Terminator movie was viewed completely separately, T4 is the worst one, being barely behind part 3. However, I found it more interesting than T3 because T3 just seemed like a poor man's T2, while this was something new and different in the saga. Overall, I give it a 7/10 (for comparison sake- T1=8.5, T2=9, T3=7)
