Terminator Salvation (9/10)
by Tony Medley
Runtime 114 Minutes.
Not for children.
This is a slam-bank, action packed, high
tension film set in a post-apocalyptic California, pitting the
machines of Skynet against John Conner’s (Christian Bale) humans who
have survived Judgment Day, which wiped out most of mankind when
machines took over the world.
Loaded with special effects and filmed with a
background of treeless desolation, this is the type of film I generally
abhor. But director McG, whose previous efforts have consisted of the
deplorable (but profitable) “Charlie’s Angels” (2000) and its sequel,
“Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle (2003), and the equally disappointing
“We Are Marshall” (2006), has taken a story and script by John Brancato
& Michael Ferris) and delivered a story that kept me in thrall

society, he’s joined by a new character, Marcus Wright (heartthrob Sam

While this is science fiction, and by
definition, absurd, the story is so well done that it captivated me.
There is non stop tension in this film that also adds some love
interest. This film has everything but beautiful landscapes. It’s a good
story and has terrific action.
Maybe the only detriment to the film is that
it is annoyingly loud.
