OUR RATING: (Sucks) 2 out of 5 score.

Most people have already decided that T3 is just "cashin' in" on the Terminator Series' fame. After seeing it at the sneak preview theater showing, I walked away thinking the movie producers really did attempt to make a new and interesting storyline for this film. There was definately a ton of action -- although some of it felt like it was recycled from the previous movies -- done with standards of this year instead of last.

No big ooh's and ahh's for this film... nothing like you get with Matrix and the like. A lot of scenes felt like a scene out of Grand Theft Auto; with cars crashing all over and police vehicles bumping into the main character's ride as he is attempting to escape with his cute girlfriend away from the bad robot lady. Soundtrack was weak.

You know, now that I think about it... you are absolutely right! The audienced learned NOTHING of value regarding the overall plot of the machines etc, which made for some great storylines when T1/T2 was big and having game titles published based on the series.

Anyone remember the little elevator crush action going on Duke Nukem 3d? Ah... those were the days. 56k multi-player Duke3d battles. All replaced with the likes of Counter-Strike and BF1942 now.

T3's only saving grace was the fact that it had some decent action. And hey, not every movie has a possible California State Gov. destroying everything in his way.

This entire movie was a "recycled" movie of terminator 2 and 1. This movie was horrible - Beacause i learned NOTHING new about the plot or the mahcines nothing at all, it made hardly any sense (when comparing to T1 and T2) this movie is a stinker...
