Required viewing for Terminator fans – this latest offering is big on bang and killer ‘bots, if nothing else, compared to the tv series, which has more heart and a relatively better plot. Marcus Wright, from the movie reminds me of Uncle Reese, from the show. The movie’s John Connor felt wan, if that’s possible? Angry but wan? Maybe I’ve reached a Christian Bale saturation point – while the show’s JC delivers the right mix of anger, frustration, drama, fear.
Recommended order for Terminator marathon: T1, T2, the tv series, and then T4. Missing something? T3 was so forgettable (the movie came up empty and useless) that your hardcore fan friends can fill you in on what went down since T2.
