Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines (2003)
17 January 2012
Excerpt: Ten years have passed since John Connor (Nick Stahl) helped to blow up Cyberdyne Systems and stop Judgment Day. Now in his 20s, he’s a homeless person living on the street where his only survival is his strength and eating off medicine at a local stray pound.
Summary: Silly entry into the series, full of lackluster action sequences, ridiculous dialogue, and a complete disregard for the gritty weight of practical effects and interesting characters the first two films carried.
Summary: Adds nothing new to the series at all. The plot is basically a re-hash of 'Terminator 2'. While not as thrilling, groundbreaking, or even compelling as the previous films, it still ends up being an average action movie. Some of the fights and chases are cool. Arnold is fun to watch.
Summary: Enjoyed this more than the first two Terminators -- in large part due to Nick Stahl, who did a great job getting the bad taste of John Connor out of my mouth that Edward Furlong left. Humor is also more on target and cheesy lines are kept to a minimum.
Summary: Action: 3/3 + Comedy: 0.5/2 + Good vs Evil: 0.5/1 + Love/Sex: 0.5/1 + Special Effects: 0.5/1 + Plot: 0.5/1 + Music: 0/1 = 5.5/10 or 55%. After the exhausting fun of Terminator 2 one has every right to expect something for the third installment.
