    I was pleasantly surprised by this movie! I am a big terminator fan and I really enjoyed T1,2 and even 3 but I didn’t go to the cinema to watch this as there were too many mixed reviews.

    Wish I did now as it’s was awesome! I thought bale was really good as john Connor and Kyle is good too. Some of the terminators were really cool and detailed and the post-apocalyptic setting was brill. When I get a blu-ray player I am getting it on blu ray!

    Will there be a 5th one?

    oh well,each to their own-I though it was a load of utter tosh! Im a big termiantor fan too but salvation was garbage personified imho.

    I don't think it deserves the slating it seemed to get in general, I also enjoyed the new setting - I just wish they hadn't rewritten the script, the original one had Bale as Marcus with John Connor on the sidelines. Given how much John Connor has been built up as this almost superhero who's going to save humanity I think the original would have been better as he's never going to live up to that in person. I would have liked to see more of the larger terminator machines as I liked the way the different units connected into each other to provide various functions.

    it was a good film. i dont trust reviews/general consensus any more as it seems to go against my opinion in the film department

    after the disapointment of T3 I wasn't hoping for much, after all never in a million years would it be the kind of groundbreaking film T2 was, so take it for what it is..... brain out action film, decent special fx, i liked it.

    None of you seem to be mentioning that Bale was a shocking cardboard cut out who was outdone by a mute CGI Arnold Schwarzenegger

    I'm big fan, American Psycho, The Machinist, The Prestige, all excellent performances but this was the worst i've ever seen him

    Actually that's what I was saying above although not quite the same terms, the original script had Bale as Marcus and without John Connor - I think that would have been much better as the John Connor role didn't fit in at all.

    It's rare that i'd say this, but this film would be better without bale

    Worthington did an excellent job considering the limitations of the script, John Conner could just have been an off screen role, or even better just killed off early on (we know he dies because of T1)

    would have made it a much more interesting film
