1.5 starsTerminator Salvation - 5/26/2009

Tommy and I went to Movies 10 this evening to see Terminator Salvation.  It is the sequel or prequel (depending on how you want to look at it) to the famous Arnold Schwarzenegger films.  This episode stars Christian Bale and Sam Worthington.

This movie is not nearly as good as the other Terminator films.  The visual effects are great, but that's about the only thing this is better.  The acting is average and there is no plot

I hate to be beaten over the head with a heavy message in a film.  But there was no point made about the horrors of nuclear war or man's relationship with machines or technology.  These are some of the small ideas that helped carry the previous films and made them more than simple action movies with chases and explosions.

Terminator Salvation is not the great movie it should have been.  Skip it.  And when it comes out on DVD... skip it again.
