    I went along expecting this to suck but honestly it’s far better than most critics are saying. Did anyone really expect it to be as groundbreaking as the first two films? It’s certainly an improvement on T:3 and Salvation. It’s an enjoyably batty, summer blockbuster and taken as such is worth seeing. It tries to do something new with the franchise without throwing the baby out with the bathwater and I think Arnie does a great job within the “three ages of Terminator” plot.

    It’s no Mad Max: Fury Road but it’s definitely worth dragging yourself to the cinema for.

    I’m afraid this franchise, though barely more enjoyable, is swirling down the same sh!tty drain as its Alien/Predator/Prometheus neighbor. At this point Terminator just needs to STOP. Or perhaps go in a totally different direction… wait, they tried that with Salvation and everyone bashed it for doing so. I guess this is what we asked for and deserved.

    Good review, Rob. I may see this in a matinee … at a second run theater. Or just wait for Netflix. I read another reviewer whose biggest problem seemed to be the PG-13 rating. He said there was potential for some really good, bloody, sexy action but it felt constrained (“watered down” was his exact words, I believe) by the rating. Too bad, really. I had high hopes for this.
