Typical For These Times

I've long been a fan of the Terminator films so I went into this one pretty excited for the next chapter in the John Connor saga. What I got (and should have expected) was a movie with little regard for story and only concerned with non-stop action and shooting, but JUST enough so that it secures the PG-13 rating to get in all the 14-17 year old boys who undoubtedly lined up outside the theatres excited about the older movies their big brothers told them about. I guess that's why producers got an action and music video director instead of a real director who would focus more on story than on how many T-800 bodies pile up on screen. At least he had the marketing know-how to stick in that old Guns N' Roses song from the second movie for no apparent reason. He also inserted Arnold Schwarzenegger's face onto a body to remind us, or try to convince, us that this really is a Terminator movie. Not a total disappointment but it doesn't rank among the first two Terminator films or maybe not even the third.

it's a very different kind of story there's no human or robot who's protecting someone but it shows the beginning of John Connor's story and the apparition of the first T-800 who will be send in 1984 to kill the mother of John Connor and later in 1991 it's John Connor himself who will send a T-800 to protect is mother and himself when he was a teenager.
it's not the best Terminator that's for sure but it's refreshing to see some other kinds of robots and a young Arnold and Christian Bale & the sexy Moon Bloodgood are great... i'm ranking it 4th but is not far from the third one. :)
