He's Finally Back

A decade has passed since John Connor (Nick Stahl) helped prevent Judgment Day and save mankind from mass destruction. Now 25, Connor lives "off the grid" - no home, no credit cards, no cell phone and no job. No record of his existence. No way he can be traced by Skynet - the highly developed network of machines that once tried to kill him and wage war on humanity. Until...

... out of the shadows of the future steps the T-X (Kristanna Loken), Skynet's most sophisticated cyborg killing machine yet. Sent back through time to complete the job left unfinished by her predecessor, the T-1000, this machine is as relentless as her human guise is beautiful.

Now Connor's only hope for survival is the Terminator (Arnold Schwarzenegger), his mysterious former assassin. Together, they must triumph over the technologically superior T-X and forestall the looming threat of Judgment Day...or face the apocalypse and the fall of civilization as we know it.

What the critics are saying:

"Fast, funny and forgettable, this instalment ensures the Terminator will be back for more, whether you like it or not."
- Nev Pierce, BBCi

"Several significant plot holes prove a frustrating and unnecessary distraction from the exhilarating, ante-upping, unflagging action of...an otherwise worthy, series-fulfilling successor..."
- Rob Blackwelder, SPLICEDwire

"...may lack the mythic power of the 1984 original and the visionary thrill of T2, but it's a potent popcorn movie that digs in its hooks and doesn't let go."
- Peter Travers, Rolling Stone


While Terminator 3: The Rise of the Machines never quite equals the elusive power of the first two Terminator movies, it is still one of the more entertaining films of the year.

Donner them Arnie This is a cool piece of escapism. Action all the way apart from one or two little breaks for you to get your breath back. Great sequences pleasantly devoid of the plastic feel of so many computer generated action scenes. Arnie typically amusing in computer mode. The sequel's gonna be great. Worth the ticket price

T3 Ag, the only good scene is with a crane and Arnie's usual bike escapades. The end is a let-down. Still, Arnie looks good.

Not as good as I expected I really expected more of this movie, but I did enjoy the special effects.

Arnie Rulz Forget Matrix Reloaded. This SCI-FI movie started it all and the third installment is the best yet. Bring on T4: War of the machines. YAAAAAA
