  • I'll give this movie credit for attempting to be different and not another "time travel" movie. In that regard, it's worth a watch, but in my opinion it's still pretty forgettable. The look and feel of the movie lacks the dark gritty feel of Cameron's original films, plus the machines come across as cannon fodder rather than real threats.

  • This is a good film and probably what the third should've focused on, Kyle meeting John for the first time but as soon as moonblood whatever he name is turns up it becomes a generic modern film where the established main character is now second fiddle to the sadly always compulsory 'strong independent woman' and showing how strong she is. The added romance subplot always makes films better. 🙄

  • That two minute “who is John Conner?” sketch in the beginning is excruciatingly bad. You do know that John’s importance has been like the entire driving force of the franchise, right? It’s literally emphasized in EVERY film that precedes Salvation. The only way that “joke” makes sense is if Salvation is your only knowledge of the franchise. But please, keep farting out half-baked memes stolen from bodybuilding forums 🤣. Oh and don’t forget to keep nodding unnecessarily long after you say a “joke”, as if waiting for audience laughter that never comes.

  • I really liked seeing the various types of machines, and the various elements of the future war. But I also felt cheated because I was promised LASER Technicals. I feel like theres nice little details that homage the originals, like Reese learning the shotgun strap trick, the scar on Johns face, the inverse hot and cold kill on the T-800, vs the T-1000. But mostly I kinda just accepted this movie because it wasn't Terminator 3, and I really didn't want the Terminator movies basically just circle jerking around Terminator 2 forever.

    atlantiswolfatlantiswolf27 kun oldin
  • I do like this one bc they finally had the ballz to portray the doomed future and the Terminators look great. It has flaws but if the series kept this path instead of empty nostalgia it would have been much better. Oh yeah, and I agree that the ending is dumb, as if heart transplants were that simple too.

    DBZehDBZeh28 kun oldin
  • The is the most different terminator movie of all of them. It didn't try the time travel crap again but instead it's about the war between humans and machines. I think it deserves some respect. Also I think this could've worked as trilogy too with the final movie ending the war between machines and humans

  • You wanna know what would have been an interesting twist on the idea? Or should I say "another" interesting twist on the idea? What season 2 Finale of "Sarah Connor Chronicles" did. When John Connor jumped into the time machine and end up in the future, met his uncle Derek Reese (a character made for the show and Kyle's brother), introduced himself...only so that Derek and his men be like: "Yeah never heard of you"....boom End Season....only for the show to be cancelled.

  • Conner helped humanity at the start. But it wasn't his story. It was the android and reese's. They expanded his scenes cause they liked his performance. And one of the endings was the terminator killing them all. So I wouldn't put too much stock in the alternate ending that makes no sense. Just because the writing didn't do anything.

  • Honestly I enjoyed Salvation far more than I did RotM. Seeing the story in the future rather than yet another time jump plot was refreshing in a way, and the practical fx along with the cgi at the time was beautiful. Plot holes and inconsistencies aside, this film had good moments. I rank Salvation much higher than T3.

    Titan MacDougallTitan MacDougallOy oldin
  • To make Connor and Markus friends at the beginning would make a compelling conflict when it's revealed that Markus is a robot. Another thing they could have done was have the doctor from the 1st 3 films. He's mostly a coward and a companion with Kyle Reese (who suddenly not so crazy from the 1st film). He and Reese get captured by the machines. Connor comes to save them in a fight with a T-800. After some struggle, Reese is down for the count, Connor is about to be killed, until the doctor unexpectly saves them, and they barely escape.

  • Wait why does John Connor need a new heart we already established a guy that is mostly a machine and still has a functioning human heart. I'm pretty sure you could do the reverse of that and just give John an artificial organ. That facility is probably full of them.

  • it is sad how this movie could have done something special by focusing on Reese and Connor as characters through the eyes of Marcus yet utter fail and the fact that they do something new with no time travel and Arnold and make it set during the war which should be the most scaryest and heart breaking but is not but it is far from the worst in my opinion

  • Another failed attempt by hollywood at recreating terminator 1/2. Is making an original fresh terminator movie that hard? Hollywood..please get one thing straight. The story arc ENDED at terminator 2. There is no more skynet, no more t-800 CPU's and arms to reverse engineer, the time loop CLOSED itself into non existence as skynet indirectly sent his own creation and set its own destruction. Cyberdine EXPLODED! The internet DID NOT exist by the time terminator 2 was made. Its OVER! Why is this SO HARD to understand? If you want to make a reboot. Make A ACTUAL reboot not a rehash of T1 and 2 with ever so convoluted plotlines. Its not like Hollywood is incapable of making good reboots....oh wait..nevermind. Edit: the reason that they didnt explained Bryce Dallas Howards being pregnant in the movie is because at the time of the movie She was pregnant IRL and the director was too lazy to put an extra line or 2 to ackowledge the fact that she IS pregnant and why. Making their interactions very awkward as the act as if she wasnt.

  • We have to admit to orselves the problem is that while T2 was awesome flavored awesome wrapped in awesome, it was actually the wrong sequel. The sequel shoulda been a mad max esque story set in the future, with John coming in out of the dust Mad Max style and saving the day and gathering his forces to attack Skynet.
