Photo quality is often varied. Entertaining for two or so reads. Probably more suited to a collector.

Finally, the movie companion for Terminator is out. That took a while, since the movie was released in 1984. It's a pretty timeless movie though, T1 and T2.

Well, Terminator Vault is an excellent movie companion. It's a 176-page hardcover presented in a slipcase. Presentation style is similar to Alien Vault: The Definitive Story of the Making of the Film. Author of both the books are Ian Nathan.

This is an incredibly in-depth behind-the-scenes look at the movie production. Besides stories of the actual movie production, it also weaves in the events that happened to director James Cameron before he came up with the Terminator idea, things that were happening around Hollywood, and events that happen during the time of filming.

There are interviews with James Cameron where he talks about all the troubles that came about from filming. You'll read about the politics behind film-making, staging the set, creating special effects of the morphing Terminators and more. The write-up is very detailed and intriguing. The book only covers T1 and T2 with brief mention to T3 and Terminator: Salvation.

The included pictures are film stills, behind-the-scenes production photos, storyboards, some artworks and miscellaneous stuff like movie posters. There are a few pockets between the pages holding removable items, such as a Czech movie poster, or the Polaroid that John Connor gave to Kyle Reese to identify Sarah Connor.

Highly recommended to fans of the movie. It's packed with lots of interesting stuff to read.

After opening the Alien vault for his 2011 book of the same name, Empire’s Ian Nathan now lifts the lid on the Terminator film series.

Although the recent sequels (2003’s Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines and 2009’s Terminator Salvation) and the short-lived TV series The Sarah Connor Chronicles are given a brief mention, the book almost exclusively focuses on the production of the first two (and to many fans, the only) Terminator films.

It must be said that there’s not a huge amount of new material or unseen images about the production of the James Cameron directed sci-fi action classics. If you’re familiar with the DVD extras and production stories of these two films, there probably won’t be anything additional you will gain from purchasing the book. The tales of OJ Simpson or Lance Henriksen nearly playing the Terminator, or Cameron coming up with the original idea of the Terminator coming out of the flames during a fevered dream he had in Rome, will already be familiar with fans of the series.

Most of the interviews or quotes appear to be taken from the various DVD documentaries or articles written over the years (although it is of course possible that the new interviewees told the same anecdotes to Mr Nathan…) There are a few new nuggets of information (one studio executive suggested Kyle Reece has a robot dog as a sidekick) but nothing massively revelatory.

The book is also disappointingly lacking in decent behind the scenes photos. The majority of the photographs are publicity shots of the actors in character that, while looking very slick, don’t really give much insight of the production or creative process of the two films.
