I'll be back (he wasn't joking)
26 June 2017
I think there are obviously some films that the critics really take aim at. This was one. On the whole its a very good action film with some neat plot twists and a good cast. It certainly didn't deserve the tearing down the cynical critics gave it. The film returns to the original Terminator film, but shows a different reality to the one we remember. To achieve the look of the original an entire Arnie was created in CGI, based on his look in the original film, so he could fight with an older Arnie. I thought this alone was worth the price of admission. The story itself can get a little confusing, but no where near the "plot mess" the critics described it as. Because it deals with time travel there's always a bit of convolution, but its not hard to follow at all. The cast are great, Arnie gets a bit of comedy on top of his usual self, Emilia Clarke is definitely destined for bigger film roles and there's even an appearance from Dr Who himself Matt Smith. Its certainly worth watching on an evening and far better than other attempts to revive the Terminator franchise. Recommended.
