Skynet has sent it's latest robot into the past to hunt not only John Connor, but the humans who will help him fight the machines. The human resistance once more sends a captured Terminator back to protect Connor in the days before Judgement Day.
For starters I love the idea that, be it sooner or later, a war with the machines we've created is inevitable (it's part of what makes 'The Matrix' so good!). This novelisation and, of course, the T3 film is clearly just a money spinner. However, from a merchandising exercise the makers have managed to pull together an exciting, action-packed story in the style of it's predecssors. I liked the way the Terminatrix combines new elements with old ones to create a convincing new super-robot and most of all I enjoyed the beginning of the war; when T-X unleashes the T-1s and the Hunter-Killers.
Naturally, this is an action based novelisation and, as such, wastes little time on subtlties and description. Also the 'drive, crash, fire cannon, drive, crash' formula is repetetive. The worst thing of all about this novelisation (perhaps it's just me - I'm touchy about such things) is that at the beginning of the book John Connor and his wife send Terminator back in time, but half-way through Terminator claims that only his wife did so because Connor is . . . I'll let you find the rest out yourself, but it is annoying.
Not a thinking man's novel, but an entertaining read.
John Connor has lived off the grid for years, but when a chance meeting with a woman from his past occurs, the Terminator also appears, explaining that both their lives are connected in the future and that their lives are in danger from a new Terminator, a more terrifying, more lethal, more unstoppable machine than Conner has experienced before...the T-X.
Time is running out for the human race. Can John Conner, Kate Brewster and the T-850 Terminator stop the T-X before it's too late? Great book, I recommend it to ANY fan of the Terminator films and books.
It only took me four days to read Terminator3: Rise Of The Machines, pretty quick for me as I've always got five or six books on the go at once, so now it's time to read Terminator: Salvation, the other books I'm already part way into can wait.
Well I have been hyped up for T3 ever since I heard it was in prodiction, I must admit that the first trailer wasn't all that good but the ones that followed improved on that dramatically.
Seeing as the film has yet to be released over here yet (August 1st, this Friday) those who cannot wait can simply buy the book and learn what happens in the latest installment. As you are no doubt aware the T800 is back in an updated guise (T850) and must do battle with the ultimate Terminator Skynet has produced, the TX, a female Terminator.
The plot involves preserving the life of John Connor who leads the resistance against Skynet at a later date, let's just say that after reading the book I am shocked that the film only has a 12A rating as the book is quite graphics at times and the Terminator series is known for a bit of violence.
I cannot go into the plot very much as I do not want to spoil this for anyone who wants to see it or read it but I will tell you that the story is superb and the book is well written and the ending... well, that would be telling!.
All I can say is go and watch the film and then read the book, or, like me, read the book and then watch the film, either way you shouldn't miss out on the opportunity of seeing one of the best movies this Summer!.
