...and that's to Yahoo users online movie reviews! When on the fence, it's always great to read what the layman thinks of the latest theatrical fare. So...should I check out John Connor's grim futuristic battle? Or skip the McG fest? What says you, Yahoo users?
"I dont want to tell to much of the story without throwing in spoilers cause then whats the point of seeing the movie. Ill say this, good Story, Super Action, Lots of Machines and Terminators. Oh man cant wait for the next part. Also arnold is in the movie and yet not in it. Hows that you may ask well lets just say Roland Kickinger lends a hand. They could use this same technology to finish the movie The Game of Death. Well guys and girls if you want popcorn movie excitement with action galore go see this flick."
Hmmm....well, Bassdynamix makes some good points. Plus, he properly capitalized "Lots of Machines." Let's see...
Furreelx77, in a review titled "Thank you, thank you, thank you" writes:
"I don't care what the critics say or what picky unappreciative people say... This film was great! It showed homage and made a connection with T1 and T2 while staying self contained in its own story telling. There isn't a overly deep extravagant story line to bore us, and it had enough suspense and CG to keep the viewers clued to the screen. I have been a fan since 1984 through the Sarah Connor Chronicles. Thank you, thank you, thank you for making this film! I was entertained and intrigued from start to finish!"
Look, if it shows homage and keeps me clued to the screen, then I'm on board. Plus, they've been a fan for 25 years, and that's dedication. Oh! Looking at...
Joshking518's passionate review "I was blown out of my seat!"
|"WOW!!! That is the only thing i could speak out of my quivering lips, after this amazing film was over. This movie was definitely one of the best I have seen in a while. This movie didn't have a very well drawn out plot but it didn't NEED one. The movie already has an amazing backstory. The entire movie was non stop action. It never let up until the credits rolled. It also leaves us hanging for a sequel. If you're looking for well drawn out, plot-driven film, look somewhere else. But if you're looking for a blown-out-of-your-pants experience then you have most definitely come to the perfect place!!!"|
Shoot...well, I usually look for well drawn out, plot-driven films. Then again, I do enjoy a good blown-out-of-your pants experience. Isn't it possible to have both? You, know kind of like when we all saw Howard the Duck for the first time?
Geavone writes, in his review "Best robot movie ever!"
"Anyone that actually seen this movie and says its anything less then great is either not into this kind of film or they are simply hating!"
Well, obviously Geavone hasn't seen Robot Jox...
Jbscott_2003 raves "Nice!"
"Action- yes story- yes surprise-yes, pretty girl- yes. how can you not like it? i don't know what the critics were watching. It was worth going to see."
Whoah whoah whoah---action, surprise, AND pretty girl? That's almost as good as comedy, shock and accident-prone dwarf! I just may have to see this Terminator thing after all!

Bunnyb5968 writes "*****ing bananas!"
"This movie was awesome! I don't want to give anything way so ill end this by saying. If you didn't like this movie that means you didn't know ***** about the series to begin with so you should go watch some ***** movie like milk!"
I'm not sure if I know five stars about the series to begin with. Well, let's see. Linda Hamilton. That's one. Oh, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Edward Furlong. Two and three. Christian Bale. Four. Crap...if I can't think of a fifth, then I'm going to have to go and watch some five star movie like Milk. Or On The Waterfront. Or Citizen Kane. Shoot. C'mon....Oh! Robert Patrick! *phew*
Well, I've learned a lot from these well-written, level-headed reviews. I'll take a day or two to really think it through before heading to the AMC. Thanks, Yahoo movies!
