    Very good! I'm a long time Terminator fan and this movie didn't let me down at all. The new characters in the storyline did an excellent performance. The movie did have much to live up to and they handled it perfectly. But it solely reminded me of the newly re-mastered Batman series and the new Star Trek enterprise that the movie industry is rebuilding. This could be after all, a new Terminator storyline. Great movie! 4 stars.

    Decent summer fun, plastic dialog in places but not too bad, MIchael Ironside is terribly miscast as his emoting cheapens the film.
    Original CGI robot concepts and superb sound design- maybe the best I have heard. Good overall look and feel. Worth seeing on the big screen-go.

    Not the best, but not the worst terminator movie ever. Christian Bale definitely shines against a pretty moderate cast, but a lot of the time he just appears to be overacting. The narrative is kind of lost, and I think TS is trying to hard to find its message, but still, if you liked the first Terminator you will like this one.

    Shockingly bad! This movie makes no sense. For example - near the end of the movie, someone needs to have major, major surgery. They do this in the desert, with no surgical instruments, and with usually required items such as anti-biotics being \"in short supply\". No tissue matching needed for a transplant, etc. etc. etc. \nin other scenes, John Conner just happens to have everything in his pocket to break into Skynet, with one vital door being secured with a simple plate easily pryed off with a pocket knife!\nWell, it goes on and on. My advice - leave your brain at the door when you fork over the $10 for your ticket!

    This film does a decent job of redeeming the poor showing of the third film installment and the television series (which was at best a loosely strung out alternate universe following the ending of the second film). With references as subtle as the use of music from the second film (You Could Be Mine by GnR) and photo and cassette tape direct references to the first film, this is a direct genetic link to the James Cameron series and not a "reach" as many pre-view reviews led me to believe. The story does have it's holes and thin points but being excusable as it is an action movie sequel and can not be compared to other mega-sequels that equal if not surpass the original showings like The Godfather II, Return of The Jedi, and even Terminator 2.

    In addition to the direct references leading from the 1984 and 1991 films, there are even minute story leads that Kyle Reese mentioned in his initial briefing with Sarah Connor in the Grey LTD such as the T-600 with rubber skin and the new infiltrator type terminators. These leads aren't openly discussed in the film but are definitely recognizable by fans.

    I highly recommend anybody that was a fan of the James Cameron films to definitely check it out, I was glad I did!

    Shockingly good. After reading so many mediocre reviews, you probably don't want to see it. Think again. I wasn't going to see it after I learned that it was the first part of a new trilogy. Didn't feel like seeing part I of a new trilogy. However, I got bored one night and went to see it. Wow, really glad I did.

    The story line was very creative, with the lead character like something out of I-Robot. He was part human and part Cyborg. He thought he was human. It was REALLY good.

    As for the special effects, let me just say that I don't see movies because of special affects. It's the lamest reason to see a movie. I hate special effects for the sake of special effects. Having said that, the special effects in this movie all served a purpose and were very well done. It wasn't just a random display of bombs and bullets. Rather, the speical effects fit well within the story. I was pleasantly pleased with how they were weaved into the story.

    This movie was as good as Terminator II (Nothing will top Terminator I and Terminator III was just mediocre). It did not leave you hanging at the end. The entirety of the story was completed. You can't go wrong seeing this movie. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
