terrible film. Plot holes large enough to drive a truck through


the action sequences were nicely done. But aside from that...there are glaring problems with it 0

Alright, time for me to weigh in with my big, fat, hairy opinion.

I loved it.

I can't say it was perfect, and I don't know that it properly continues the legacy of James Cameron's saga. But it was damn fun to watch, and highly entertaining.

I think it might be better to think of it as more of a spin-off than a sequel. It's taking the story in a new direction, that while it may not be what Cameron visualized as a proper continuation of the story, is at least very intriguing and enjoyable to watch. If fans of the series hate it, well I have no problem with them pretending it doesn't exist.. but at least try and enjoy it for the rip roaring good action flick that it is.

I thought the cast was overall very good, and I would also disagree with those who thought there was no human element or depth.. it's there alright, just not necessarily at the forefront. I at least really felt for the characters and all the fucked up shit that was happening to them. Plus, it was also really really cool! Awesome action scenes, and i found it to be very gripping. Most of the humour worked as well, although some was a litttttle hokey.

A few minor complaints... I didn't think kristanna Loken, while very hot, was a terribly menacing enemy.. she was more "nifty" than scary. T-1000 from T2 was a much more pleasingly creepy villain. And there were also some instances that were a little on the cheesy side of things.. but despite a few shortcomings it had the action/humour/excitement formula worked out perfectly and it kept me quite into it the entire way through.. and to me that's what matters. I think i'd give it a 9 out of 10.. a few problems, but it sure kept me excited, surprised, entertained, and intrigued.


And about the ending... SPOILERS follow... (select the text to read it easier.. clever eh?)



I thought it worked very well. The whole theme of controll vs fate that dominates the series is of course a very intriguing one, and here it works out that fate shits on everyone in the end. It was slightly tragic, but overall dramatically it just worked very well, the sealing of fate, the anticipation of what must follow. With this continuation of the series, the creators are going forward and telling the story that was not necessarily to even exist.. but here is what happens when/if it does.. and it's all rather thrilling. It just felt 'big' to see skynet actually implemented and the machines starting to run amok.. I dunno though, maybe shit hitting the fan is just very entertaining to me. Anyway, I can't wait for the (inevitable?) sequel(s?)

terminator 3 was faaaaaaaaaaaaantastic. i left the theatre with two things on my mind... 1, how quickly can i see this movie again... and 2, they deffinetly set themselves up for T4.

This movie was the very deffinition of an action-blockbuster. amazing stunts, good special effects, a few laughs. i think they did a great job continuing the storyline off of the first 2.

i thought it was great. anyone lookin' for an artsy drama or a nice romantic-comedy, this movie is not for you. but if you're looking for a balls to the wall all out action flick, terminator 3 is right up your alley.

The plot was too thin to have holes in it. Seriously folks, don't be so judgemental about judgement day. Terminator 3 will never win an Oscar for anything other than special effects. Why must all movies be critiqued for artistic achievement? Maybe those people would enjoy it more if they watched it in German with English sub-titles.
