4.5 out of 10 It'll be back !!
Alan from Dublin, 19 Jan 2010
If this installment is anything to go by, I'm sure there'll be more movies in this franchise. Despite some bad press, I was unsure if this was going to live up to the previous Terminator films but I needn't have worried. Set in 2018 it has plenty of new terminators trying to put an end to humans. Christian Bale gives a good brooding action performance ( a la Batman ) and has a good supporting cast with him, the action sequences are brilliant and the special effects live up to the big budget.

1 out of 10 Future begins badly
Michael J from Wicklow, 22 Sep 2010
The first movie was a 18-rated sci-fi thriller, grounded in reality, which was one reason Arnie had such a sense of menace, it had emotion, tension, scares and great action scenes. This movie abandons all that as well as the laws of physics, logic or any semblance of realism and instead goes for endless unbelivable CGI stunts. The terminators are as dangerous as the storm troopers from return of the jedi. Big dissapointment.

3.5 out of 10 Better than expected.
Ken from Dublin, 22 Nov 2009
Despite the poor reviews from the press, I quite enjoyed this. The movie has moved the franchise into the future and it wokrs well. Bale is excellent but looks a little mute. Excellent cameo teowards the end and top cinematography, particularly in the action scenes. A good adition to the franchise and one hopes this won't stifle any chances of another movie.

4.5 out of 10 Woohoo
Pia from Cork, 11 May 2010
If you like Terminator films, this is for you. A bit more futuristic compared to the others and tiny resemblance to Mad Max films but very entertaining and cool special effects. Still think Terminator 2 is the best of them all but definately prefer this one than Terminator 3!

What's it about....
The Terminator saga is back with Terminator Salvation: The Future Begins - the first of three films starring Christian Bale as John Connor. Set in post-apocalyptic 2018, John Connor (Bale) is the man fated to lead the human resistance against Skynet and its army of Terminators. But the future Connor was raised to believe in is altered in part by the appearance of Marcus Wright (Sam Worthington), a stranger whose last memory is of being on death row. Connor must decide...
