Movie Review: Terminator Salvation

The new Terminator movie is one of the best video games I’ve never played.  This movie is wall-to-wall action with lots of guns, little robots, big robots, and hand-to-hand combat.  As for the acting, Christian Bale plays “Batman” and everyone, the scenery, and camera style seem imported from the new “Battlestar Galactica.”    Actually, a lot of this movie seemed imported from a few recent movies, TV shows, and video games (I also got a vague sense of “Halo” from this movie).  I thought the end was pretty jacked up because I would have liked the character that dies to continue on.   Geez … it’s rather handy to have someone who can hack into Skynet without becoming part of Skynet … Oh well, whatever … My feeling is that this movie fits in with the first two movies.  The third movie was a stinker, so I don’t count it as a Terminator movie.    Suspending reality, though, I have to say I really enjoyed this movie for what it was and I recommend it as a good summer action movie.

Movies Kuroneko003 is anticipating — “Harry Potter 6”, “Bruno” (from that “Borat” guy — the theater was giddy with laughter during the preview), “Sherlock Holmes” (starring Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law — Hellz YEAH!!!  Both of those guys get better with age), and “The Hangover.”
