Told using cutting edge Machinima animation the story takes place two years before the beginning of Terminator Salvation and follows the paths of two characters from the theatrical film, Blair Williams and Laz Howard, as they cope with the loss and disaster of Judgment Day. Follow their journey as they find the strength to survive and ultimately join the resistance to fight along side John Connor - the future but currently little known saviour of mankind.

I am a big fan of the Terminator universe, for good or bad. I have been a fan since the first time I seen Terminator 2 in the cinema as a young teenager. I have all the films on both DVD and Blu-ray including both The Sarah Connor Chronicles seasons, all the soundtracks, books and comics, plus figures and so much more. I'm very much like a T-600 in that way, I seek out everything and anything Terminator. So you can imagine my joy when by accident I came across this DVD (Terminator Salvation: The Machinima Series), I wasted not a minute more and ordered it here on Amazon.

"But is this DVD any good or adds anything new to the film, all you Terminator fans out there may ask?"

"And after viewing this DVD I can say from my point of view, yes on both accounts!"

A little about the story. The Machinima Series, is set two years before the advents of Terminator Salvation. The year is 2016, the Resistance fighter Blair Williams (Voiced by the beautiful Moon Bloodgood) embarks on a deadly mission into the city overrun by Skynet and it's killer Terminators, to seek out and terminate the threat that is weakening the Resistance's defenses. But soon she finds out that the threat to the Resistance may not only be from the machines, but from one of their own. This is the untold story of how the Resistance was made aware, of the signal of hope from Terminator Salvation.

I really enjoyed this series, and I feel it makes a very suitable companion piece to Terminator Salvation. One of the reasons why I enjoyed this series so much, is because it's Blair Williams time to shine as the whole series is one of her back stories. I felt that the character of Blair Williams didn't have enough screen time in the film, but this story does her justice.

Produced by the team of Warner Bros, The Halcyon Company, and with the supervision of both McG(who directed the movie) and cohorts such as Mic Rogers(Director Universal Soldier 2), this collection of six short 15 minute animated chapters is one of many related Terminator Salvation spin-off products to be cast as a `prequel' story to the events of that picture. We have already had two pulp paperbacks and a graphic novel, now we have the Salvation DVD itself and this little curio - The Machinima Series. Machinima.com produce the animation for numerous computer games' in-game movie segments as well as the game play movement itself. Previously available on the internet around the time of the movie, this 6-part animated story has audaciously bagged itself a DVD release. It is surprising that this was granted considering the animation is not really up to the standard of what you would expect, even for a straight-to-DVD production. That this DVD has received little advance word or publicity is perhaps acknowledgement by it's distributors that they are aware of this and have merely put it together as an added extra (and revenue raiser) for the Terminator fans. One element in the production's favour however is the presence of Moon Bloodgood again portraying her character of Blair Williams, though only in vocal form this time.

The story follows her character as she narrates her own story of existing amongst the ruins of post-judgement day earth and fighting Skynet and it's Terminators. She appears to be very much a Lone-Wolf, fighting on her own and not bowing down to any bureaucratic command.

Learning more about Blair Williams and her personal battle with Skynet before she hooked up with John Connor in Terminator: Salvation was always going to be interestng, but the main point of interest here is the "Ghost" who has discovered a way of disrupting Skynets Command and Control functions-at the price of disrupting Resistance communications in the process. It's Blair's Mission to track down and deal with the "Ghost" by whatever means necessary here, but when she discovers that the "Ghost" is a human being she has a decision to make...

If you've played the "Terminator: Salvation" computer game you'll recognise the scenery and the graphics in this, but I rather enjoyed the game so that's not a problem for me. There are also treats, if you keep your eyes open, when Blair encounters-unknowingly-characters who later appear in both the game and the film. The Plot is solid enough, as is the reason Blair eventually ends up with Connor, but longer would have been better, so that we could have gotten more of a feel for Blair as a character in this Post-Apocalyptic world. Maybe in a sequel?

Regardless, I thought that Blair Williams was one of the most interesting new characters in Salvation and this mini-series bears that out. If you enjoy the Terminator series you should enjoy this. Anyone else?

I enjoyed this movie, almost on principle as I'm a big Terminator fan. But then again, unlike most people I know, I thought T3 and Terminator Salvation were great, and tend to watch these in preference to T1 and T2. T2 in particular tends to depress me, whereas T3 makes me laugh. Warning: watching Terminator Salvation, The Machinima Series is like watching a video game, and so lacks the attention to detail of its big budget siblings. This appears to be by design. As a concept animation, it should have been cheaper to purchase than it was and/or should have provided more insight into the whole Skynet universe. It didn't really, but perhaps pretended to by unnecessarily breaking itself up into many chapters. Ultimately, it only served as a prequel to the sub plot idea in the main Salvation movie of beating the machines by interfering with the communication signals they use to function. I hope they make more, but make them available for download as simple DivX files at minimal cost.
