Going to put this out there: I was 100% NOT disappointed with Terminator Salvation. I am no movie critic, but it did not let me down. I think they did a great job, following the mythology of the previous installments. There are plenty of throwbacks for fans of the original movies- Kyle Reese's "Come with me if you want to live", and his signature weapon. The images of the post-judgement day world was consistent with our original glimpse at it in 1984. The face of Arnold, and voice of Linda Hamilton - delighted me! As you may have figured out I am a huge fan of the Terminator Series, but here are some reasons that even if you aren't why you should watch this movie:
Action Fans: If you like action movies you can't pass this one up. (It is a Terminator movie- for goodness sake!)
Hotties: Christian Bale, Sam Worthington- I will even throw in Common and Anton Yelchin(although I think Anton is more of a cutie) but some day he will get there. All of the men in this movie have that hot dirty look to them- must not be enough water in the post judgement day world. Every women out there will love, LOVE Sam Worthington as Marcus Wright- his eyes are dreamy, his body is smoking, and he sorta slips in and out of an Australian accent (which when I didn't find it distracting, I found it dreamy). Christian Bale- my love for you began at a very young age- remember when you were in Little Women???? I still love you.
Hotties (For the men): Moon Bloodgood, don't ask, just watch. You will thank me.
Romance: Romance in an action movie you say? Yes- check out Sam Worthington and Moon Bloodgood make eyes at each other the whole movie. One disappointment was the lack of heat between John Connor and his wife (which I am going to write off as- people are always dying, she is 8 months pregnant, and he is preoccupied with trying to find and keep his dad alive)
I really really liked it. And I was 100% glad I didn't wait for it to be on DVD. Kelsey- who I drag to movies with me- is not a Terminator fan (she does love action movies though) and she recommended it to watch in the theatre to anyone who likes action.
