Now that you've seen it, what did you think? Back in 2003 the Terminator franchise came to an apocalyptic end with Terminator 3 and no one thought it would ever return. But it did, in a big way, with Terminator Salvation. Is it any good? Has McG pulled off a great Terminator movie and brought back this franchise in style? Or is it too loud or too messy for your tastes? Is the story the best or the worst part? Do Christian Bale or Sam Worthington kick ass or not? And can this franchise survive without Arnold? Sound off below, leave your thoughts, and let us know what you thought of Terminator Salvation!
To fuel the fire, believe it or not, I actually loved Terminator Salvation. I went into it expecting to hate it but walked out loving it, through and through. I really think McG pulled it off. It looks great, sounds great, the action is awesome, the effects are even better, the performances are all great, what more do we need besides that? Oh right, a good story, and you know what, it had one. Sure it had a few rough edges and some minor plot holes, but overall I enjoyed it, in fact, I had a blast watching it. It's loud and energetic and fun to watch and that's what I value the most. It really did surpass my expectations, but maybe that's just me.
What did you think of McG's Terminator Salvation? A glorious return and an epic mess?
