The most advanced Terminator unit ever is sent to destroy humankind and ensure the triumph of the machines.
Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines starts in high gear and never slows down. The apocalyptic "Judgment Day" of T2 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 future wife Kate (Claire Danes) in thwarting the T-X's relentless pursuit. The plot presents a logical fulfilment of T2's prophecy, 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 rehearsals for this cautionary epic of mass destruction, director Jonathan Mostow wisely avoids any stylistic connection to James Cameron's 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
On the DVD: Terminator 3 two-disc set has only one deleted scene, but it's first-class. The "Sgt Candy Scene" is a must-see and, unfortunately, the best thing on the second disc. The rushed HBO documentary shows us far more flash than substance. Better is the Visual Effects Lab that goes more in-depth with four sequences, although you need to wade through a weak interface for each segment. Making your "own" effects isn't that much fun; you can only choose a few effects that change in two scenes. Anyone looking to get the complicated backstory of the trilogy figured out should dig into the "Sky Net Database" and an intricate timeline.
Disc 1 has a 30-second intro from the Governator himself, plus two commentary tracks: director Jonathan Mostow goes into great detail on how the little things (from lighting street scenes to tricks for destroying buildings) count; the second track is pieced together from the actors recorded separately--here Mostow appears with actress Claire Danes doing her first commentary track. The anamorphic 2.40:1 widescreen picture and thunderous DTS 5.1 or Dolby Digital 5.1 sound options deliver everything you would expect. --Doug Thomas --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The story follows John Conner now played by a different actor in Nick Stahl- it would have been preferable had the producers got in Edward Furlong- the emotional connection to Schwarzenegger would have been worth Furlong's cheque.
The deadly terminator this time a female will probably be met upon at first as bah! Yes she is a blonde, yes she is wearing make up and yes she looks stunning- would the machines really care what she looks like? Robert Patrick who played the T1000 in T2 was hardly anything to look at- and that is what made his character more appealing and real. However it must be said that this new Terminator named TX kicks some butt. Played brilliantly by Kristanna Loken. At least Loken gets the role and creates despair along the way- she moves like a robot, so glamour aside thumbs up here.
The movie suffers though from Nick Stahl and his accomplice played by Claire Danes. Both give poor performances, simply unbeliveable- a devastating cast choice. Stahl plunders through the movie grabbing any chance to look his best inbetween action shots. Danes non reaction to her finaces death is critical- and she never claims her role for herself- any other actress could have played it.
Finally onto the big man- Schwarzenegger- and quite frankly if it wasn't for him the film would be forgotten about quickly. He plays the role so convincingly that you forget Schwarzenegger has starred in any other movies. He is the Terminator- and garces the screen everytime he is on it.Read more ›
The basis of the film is almost taking the story from ‘T2’ and recycling it expand a story that doesn’t need to be expanded. Instead of Robert Patrick’s deadly and eerie T-1000 villain, we have a female carbon-copy in the T-X played by Kristanna Loken who tries too hard to evoke Patrick’s menace, fluidity and threat but comes across as just a pale imitation with a few new gadgets.
Both Terminators find their target in an explosive confrontation, a couple of big and loud chase sequences follow, lots of exposition and self-narration, an large military headquarters attack takes place and a final battle with the Terminators ensures as the heroes battle to save the world. It’s ‘Terminator 2’, but without any respect for the gravitas of the story it’s trying to tell and a focus on character relationship and development.
It’s hard to slam this film, as Arnold Schwarzenegger is again perfect as the Terminator himself, the T-800, and he looks in great physical shape. Sadly it’s the script he’s given that lets the character down.Read more ›
Let's be brutally honest: TERMINATOR 3 - RISE OF THE MACHINES basically is a carbon copy of TERMINATOR 2 - JUDGMENT DAY. Some Cameron fanatics might cry out sacrilege! right about now, me comparing T3 to there precious T2, but I really didn't care too much for T2, which offered nothing really except for a SFX overkill. T3 recycles the same story: evil Terminator sent back in time to kill John Connor, "good" Terminator (Schwarzenegger) sent back in time to protect John Connor, the differences being minimal: Robert Patrick was replaced by Kristanna Loken, who in my opinion makes a GREAT Terminator, Sarah Connor is dead, and replaced by John Connor's (Nick Stahl) Lieutenant, Kate Brewster (Claire Danes). Same old story, different faces. The violence was also drastically reduced for more family friendly entertainment as was the tone, now with even more added comedy.
Schwarzenegger plays the Terminator the same way as in T2, same old same old, Stahl's John Connor is annoying as hell, but then again so was Furlong's in T2. Claire Danes's character is rather dull. I couldn't grow attached to any of the two. Kristanna Loken however really shines as my absolute favorite Terminator next to the 1984 ORIGINAL Terminator, a brilliant show stealing performance, and the best aspect of T3.
RISE OF THE MACHINES is not a terrible movie, but as a TERMINATOR movie I found it rather disappointing. No new ideas, the same story rehashed, bloodless, but decent action scenes make for an okay popcorn sci-fi/action movie and I do like Schwarzenegger, but overall it is just an average movie.
