Bottom Line: This is the type of movies the most critics hate, but come on, you bought the movie ticket because you loved the Terminator series and were dying to see the post-Judgment Day world, not because you were looking for good drama. Terminator fans, don't be turned off by the reviews, go watch the movie!
Surprise!: The action sequences are amazing. You actually care about whether the characters live or die. The decisions these characters make in heated moments reveal their values and beliefs, and they set off real consequences.
