The Terminator was a classic - a film which first introduced the oft
copied concept of an unstoppable killing machine.
Terminator 2 : Judgement Day followed, and is in my opinion the
greatest sequel ever created, and probably the finest action film ever
It turned the concept of the previous film around and built a
foundation for the terminator mythos as solid as the stuff a
T-800 is made of. it layered it with philosophy and humour, and it
even managed to give a plausible reason for schwarzneggars inability
Terminator 3 set fire to all that and then peed it out
Terminator : The Sarah Connor Chronicles ignored t3 to try and jump
off from t2, and it pretty much failed.
now we have this:
which isn't looking all that bad. Can Christian Bale do for Terminator
what he did for Batman? Granted, Christopher Nolan isn't involved, so
its not the same situation at all really, but still - I have hope.
