Could we have been wrong all this time? It is looking increasingly possible that the film is going to be the exact opposite of the masterpiece we had come to expect. The trailers look incredible, and with Christian Bale in it, things were looking even better. But remember 1999? The Phantom Menace had amazing trailers and Liam Neeson, and look what happened there!

61zImDGy8AL. SL500  Terminator Salvation: Could we have been wrong?Reading the Terminator Salvation reviews that are coming out now, it seems that we have a similar case on our hands. It would appear that everything that made the first two Terminator movies compelling has been lost in favour of big action set pieces, flat dialogue, a duff story and very little of any real substance. Hell, a bunch of the reviews are even saying that the god-awful Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines was better. Wow.

From these reviews, the picture that is being built up is of a film that is a gargantuan screw-up. Everybody here hopes that it isn’t, and we look forward to bringing you our full review once the movie is out. It is going to be interesting to see how it divides fans. Yikes.
