Product Description

The most advanced Terminator unit ever is sent to destroy humankind and ensure the triumph of the machines.


With a reported budget of $172 million, Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines starts in high gear and never slows down. The apocalyptic "Judgment Day" of Terminator 2 was never prevented, only postponed: John Connor (Nick Stahl, replacing T2's Edward Furlong), now 22 and disconnected from society, is being pursued yet again, this time by the advanced T-X, a sleek "Terminatrix" (coldly expressionless Kristanna Loken) programmed to stop Connor from becoming the saviour of humankind. Originally programmed as an assassin, a disadvantaged T-101 cyborg (Arnold Schwarzenegger, bidding fond farewell to his signature role) arrives from the future to join Connor and his old acquaintance Kate (Claire Danes) in thwarting the T-X's relentless pursuit. The plot presents a logical fulfillment of T2 prophesy, disposing of Connor's mother (Linda Hamilton is sorely missed) while computer-driven machines assume control, launching a nuclear nightmare that Connor must survive. With Breakdown and U-571 serving as worthy rehearsals for this cautionary epic of mass destruction, director Jonathan Mostow wisely avoids any stylistic connection to James Cameron's Terminator classics; instead he's crafted a fun, exciting popcorn thriller, humorous and yet still effectively nihilistic, and comparable to Jurassic Park III in returning the Terminator franchise to its potent B-movie roots. --Jeff Shannon, --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Terminator 3 is essentially T2 a few years later but instead of preventing, or postponing Judgement Day, it actually happens. T3 is a very nice add on to the series and the film is darker than you expect. We see Judgement start at the end of the film instead of having a happy ending all wrapped up. We see loved ones left for dead and left behind and a few kids get murdered by the evil Terminator, the TX. The TX is really the only bad thing about the film. It is played by woman this time who simply cant pull off anything convincing at all. She is bland and has no screen presence unlike the T1000 in T2 and the original Schwarzenegger in the original film. Is it unfair of me to compare the TX to the others. I think not because Robert Patrick in T2 did an amazing job. Maybe it is because T3 the only film not made by James Cameron.

T3 looks great and the new director has shown the story respect rather that trying to create a new bigger better version. That would be impossible to pull off anyway and if some did try it would be an almighty f**k up and would piss a lot of people off. Anyway, I don't think Arnie or James Cameron would have allowed this if they had not trusted the new director. All the performances are solid apart from that TX as I mentioned. The new John Conner, Nick Stahl is far better than the Furlong version from T2. Stahl always plays the role in crisis and fear of what is looming in the future. To be honest i always hated the Furlong JC because he was a cocky snot and his voice grated on me. He was and is a big headed t**t who has since let him self go with drugs and thrashing woman. No sympathy from me. Stahl is a better actor and could have continued the role in Terminator Salvtion. Claire Danes assumes a Linda Hamilton type role and does a good job.

Format: Blu-ray
As it was released few months ago, the quality of this blu ray is up to 2009 standard, lots of extra and lossless soundtrack.

This is superior to the US version which contains dolby 5.1 soundtrack.

Terminator 3 Rise Of The Machines.

Arnold Schwarzenegger, Nick Stahl, Kristanna Loken, Clare Danes.
Director: Jonathon Mostow.
Format: Subtitled.
Language: English.
Subtitles: Danish, English, Finnish, Hindi, Italian, Norwegian, Swedish.
Dubbed: Italian.
Subtitles For The Hearing Impaired: English.
Audio Description: English.
Region: All Regions.
Aspect Ratio: 16:9 - 2.40:1.
Number of discs: 1.

1)There is a decent chase with The Terminator & T-X & a superb cherograped fight between these 2 cyborgs.
2)Arnie just about makes this average.
3)The T-X, a sleek "Terminatrix" is played superbly by a coldly expressionless Kristanna Loken.

1)Didn't need another second sequel, T2 had closure.
2)12a rating, It's a Terminator movie FFS!
3)Nick Stahl as John Connor is miscast here.

Blu Ray Info.
Running Time 106 minutes, Documentary, Commentary, Trailer, Deleted scene.

Blu ray.
Picture : Excellent clear vibrant print.
Sound : Crystal clear sharpness mixed in 5.1 Dolby Digital.

1)Arnie fee was $30 million for this movie.
2)This is the first Terminator movie that doesn't feature any input from James Cameron & boy does it show.
3)Arnie gave $5 million of his fee back so director Jonathan Mostow could expand upon the chase between the T-800 on the police bike & TX in the fire truck on the freeway.
4)This was Arnies last film before his political career as Governor of California.

Arnies back but this time it's more likely for the $30 million dollar payday he received for his return.

6 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Jamie Sleeman on 14 July 2009
Format: DVD
This could and should have been a very good film, but it was frankly appalling. There are a number of reasons for this...

1/ Nick Stahl is twenty million miles from the level of gritty-faced rebel that Christian Bale is. I'm not bigging Bale up particularly, I don't really like him, but this role should NEVER have gone to someone like Stahl.
Whether he was told to play John Connor as a whiny tosser by the director, Jonathon Mostow, or whether that was just his natural take on the character I don't know, but it didn't work at all.

2/ This is a B-movie. The first two films in this franchise were international blockbusters that broke the boundaries in effects, storytelling and acting (Ah-nuld excepted, naturally). This offering is cack.
Like sequels such as Ghostbusters 2, the values are way below that of its more successful predecessors, as is the directing and editing. It is a disgrace to place such a lame offering in line with two pieces of cinematic genius like The Terminator and T2.
How in the name of all that is sacred Jim Cameron could honestly describe this as "In a word... great!" is beyond me. Compared to his offerings in this franchise, it is unmitigated garbage.
I think it might have been the LA Times which said the movie was "content to be a B-movie and remain loud, dumb and obvious."
Couldn't have put it better myself.

3/ The continuity has been ripped to shreds.
We know the original film's events were set in 1984, with the future Kyle Reese had just come from - the year the war against the Machines had ended in victory for the human rebels - being 2029.
