    This was a really great film. Not perfect, but still great. I wouldn't say that i'm a hardcore terminator fan, but i have seen all the films. This movie was better than part 3, but not even close to being as good as part 1 or 2. I know that christian bale had that little tantrem on set, and i do not blame him. Until about the third act of the film, he was acting bored and even sounded a little bit like batman. I honestly don't think he wanted to do this movie. If i had to pick one more complaint, it would be the character development. Whereas the new star trek film introduced the characters as though you've never heard of them, this terminator film expects you to know everything and everyone. I give it **** out of 5

    Can you really say that Arnold was in it though? I mean really? My friends would ask me and I couldn't answer yes or no. The movie is not worth the theatre prices.

    Did anyone else notice the mistake in the credits? If you haven't seen it and are planning on going (don't waste the money) look at the credits about 10-15 names from the bottom of the cast list and they completely messed up a name. You'll notice, I'm pretty sure.

    I just saw the movie today. The movie in my opinion is kind of not that exciting. Terminator 2 is still the best one. I could have stayed at home and watched this one on PPV for a lot less money and would have been just as satisfied. I wouldn't recommend paying the high movie prices to see it. It is still a good movie, but mediocre.
