5) The Villain

Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines was fucking awful.  At least, compared to what a Terminator movie should be.  There are many reasons for this, but here are five, starting with the villain.

Let’s face it, the ‘TX’ is just a poor man’s T-1000.  In fact they even tried to write it as superior to the T-1000, yet simple logic dictates that the removal of an endoskeleton, if possible, is going to be vastly superior for the purposes of a multipurpose combat system.  It’s just lazy writing.

Kristanna Loken is also a poor man’s Robert Patrick.  Patrick was able to convey a cold, emotionless killer.  But in trying to do the same, Loken comes across as simply wooden.  Watching that film for the first time I couldn’t help but think ‘this enemy is just a cheap rip off’.

    I agree and lets not forget the line judgement day is inevitable quoted by both the terminator and John Connor during and at the end of the movie which also killed the franchise as well as the female terminator, the script writers who also wrote the game with Michael Douglas and Sean penn the commie liberal rat face prick, surrogates with Bruce Willis also directed by Jonathan mostow, etc. I think terminator for me ended with 2 because of Arnold’s rapport with jim Cameron. But now that genisys came out, it’s as good as the first two but better than 3 and 4.

      You actually thing TG is good?

        I loved the idea and story of Genysis. However PG-13 and pretty much all actors including Schwarzenegger ruined it. If it was done right, it would have been excellent movie.

        Yeah I liked the fact that they brought back the t1000 even though he was played by a different actor as well as arnold vs arnold which is something I’ve wanted to see since watching 1 and 2 over and over as well as true lies. But honestly, i think the movie should have been rated r like mad max fury road and now blade runner 2049.

    Here is a gripe I have with it. 1. The TX gasps in shock when she realizes the blood she is tasting is John’s. Not very robot like behavior there. 2. And near the end when Arnold is killing himself and the damaged TX….the TX panics. Screams in rage and panic etc. Same thing. Not very Terminator-like behavior at all.

    At the time I was quite disappointed with it, mainly the humour, but over the years and many viewings since, I really enjoy it for what it is and it’s easy to watch, there’s some great action in there, the ending is very cool and I always felt a tad emotional, and it’s just a fun ride. Sure, it’s not great, not as good as 1 or 2, but it’s my 3rd favourite out of the 5.

    It had some good action scenes, but was basically a bad ripoff of T2. The CGI was really bad too.

  • ManlyFannyPack

    T3 killed the franchise
    T:S was at least serious but had ridiculous mech stuff and was kind of a cheesy graphic novel
    T:G was the attempted marvelization of the franchise

    Honestly I think the terminator franchise should be put to bed, unless they used my idea

  • Avenging force

    Truck chase was great ,john Connor had always been a little bitch so no difference there,unless you wanted polar express dead eyed cgi arnie he was always gonna look older nothing could be done and the humour was all probably arnies idea it’s ok I think salvation is a great peice of action with on off the best movie screamers around sam Worthington ,

    Also, it’s obvious they shot this with the intention of releasing it PG-13 in cinemas.

  • French Predator

    I managed to find atrocious shit everywhere in this movie, each second of it sucks.
    Please listen to the audio commentary, Mostow is so full of dummy shit…
    “I dunno why terminators always appear naked, but I kept the idea in my movie because it’s funny”

    OUCH
