Customer Review

VINE VOICEon 17 March 2010
This set of four DVDs contains all the Terminator films without any extras. The first two films are classics and although the last two probably aren't as good as those, they are still fun to watch.

The first Terminator film is interesting but personally I find it rather slow and dull. It is nonetheless a classic film and I would probably give it three and a half to four stars.

`Terminator 2: Judgment Day' on the other hand is by far the best of the films in the quadrilogy. The plot is interesting and the action is far better than in the original. The special effects haven't aged badly and some still look good, even today. This film is definitely more than worthy of five stars.

`Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines' is a disappointment. The CGI is truly spectacular in places and while the plot is okay, it does seem to be a rather lacklustre performance. The film undoes many of the good things from the previous movies and has some truly terrible attempts at humour which generally misfire badly. It would probably be generous to give the film three stars.

The final film of the set, `Terminator Salvation', is a bit more difficult to judge. On its own it is a very good film but as a continuation of the series it doesn't really have the same feel as the previous films. For all its faults, at least `Terminator 3' felt like a Terminator film and you can easily fit it in with the first two films. `Salvation' on the other hand doesn't fit quite as well and I feel that it would have been better to treat this film as a reboot rather than a continuation of the canon. As for the film itself, it is quite enjoyable with some truly brilliant special effects and some nice shout out to the previous films. I would probably give the film four stars as a film in its own right but only three stars as a Terminator film.

Overall, all the films in this set are interesting and fun to watch. Despite their bad points they are all defiantly must see films for any sci-fi fan.
