Terminator Salvation Review

Terminator Salvation

I was looking forward to Terminator Salvation ever since I first heard about it.  You all know, by now, my huge man-crush on Christian Bale.  It’s no secret that I think he can do no wrong.

With that said, you’re probably expecting a glowing review of this film, and how much I loved it and subsequently him.  Not this time, my friends.  I did not love it.  Hell, I didn’t even like it.

Terminator Salvation is a pretty terrible movie.  While it has certain moments that are acceptable as part of an “action movie”, overall it focuses too much on the story, which  a) has been beaten to death by 3 previous movies, and b) is pretty lame in itself.

I’m not one of those people who love, and worship, the previous three films.  I’ve seen them, I like them, and I’ll leave it at that.  I don’t get into discussions about the immorality of SkyNet, or whether or not it’s feasible to have this situation arise in the future.  It’s a movie, and that’s that.  Having said that, I don’t feel that Terminator Salvation can stand by itself as a great film, and not part of a series. (For that, see Star Trek.)

Honestly, I had a hard time sitting through this movie.  It’s so dull, at times, that I felt myself nodding off, hoping something would explode and shake me back to my senses.

The first “action” scene, is quite good. Lots of explosions, lots of gun fire, people being punched, etc.  But after that, it dies off, and pretty quickly.  Once it dies off, we get to the “meat” of the story, and almost immediately stop caring about anything, and wanting more stuff to blow up.  And it doesn’t, for quite a while.

I think my biggest problem with this movie is that Bale’s character is supposed to be the hero. They call him the prophet in the movie.  And he’s really not.  He happens to show up, to save the guy that’ll be his father, and then lets a robot fight another robot to save him.  Doesn’t sound very heroic, does it?

The bottom line is, if you wanted to see this movie, you probably are going to, no matter what I say.  But don’t say I didn’t warn you.  A lot of people are complaining about this movie, further solidifying why McG shouldn’t be allowed to do anything but produce television shows anymore.

  Christian Bale Talks About His Rant New EW
Posted by: Christine on May 19th, 2009 Leave a Comment »

entertainment-weekly-may-2009The latest issue of Entertainment Weekly features MovieSnobs favorite Christian Bale on the cover.

The cover story is intended to provide fans with insight into the new Terminator movie, but inevitably strays into tabloid territory. The writer asks Bale about his profanity-laden on set outburst that became the rant heard ’round the world when it was leaked on the internet in February.

Of the rant, Bale says,

I don’t care to go into details because, you know what, I don’t believe in making excuses. It doesn’t matter. It was unacceptable. I went too far. And I learned from it.’

When asked what he learned, he laughs and says, “Count to 10 first.”

You can read the rest of Bale’s thoughts on his rant, and the story of how he signed on to Terminator: Salvation at ew.com or in the issue on newstands now.

Little things brighten my day on a Friday morning. For one, it stopped raining. Secondly, someone was nice enough to send me this four minute trailer/clip from the upcoming Terminator: Salvation from IGN, which definitely helped. So I’m sharing with you.

It’s been rumored for weeks now, if not months, that Arnold Schwarzenegger would be in Terminator: Salvation. We all knew it, we all wanted it.

Variety magazine has finally printed confirmation that we are all going to get what we want.

They report that Arnold will be an all digital version of his former self, and that he’s been working with McG behind the scenes to get his digital character into the movie.

It’s said that they’re using the original body cast they made for Terminator as a basis for Arnold’s character.

I’m starting to think that whoever they hired to do these posters insists that they keep making them, so he/she can keep making money.
