is rated 5 out of 5 by 1.
Synopsis:

A decade has passed since John Connor (NICK STAHL) helped prevent Judgment Day and save mankind from mass destruction. Now 25, Connor lives "off the grid" -- no home, no credit cards, no cell phone and no job. No record of his existence. No way he can be traced by Skynet -- the highly developed network of machines that once tried to kill him and wage war on humanity. Until, out of the shadows of the future steps the T-X (KRISTANNA LOKEN), Skynet's most sophisticated cyborg killing machine yet. Sent back through time to complete the job left unfinished by her predecessor, the T-1000, this machine is as relentless as her human guise is beautiful. Now Connor's only hope for survival is the Terminator (ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER), his mysterious former assassin. Together, they must triumph over the technologically superior T-X and forestall the looming threat of Judgment Day, or face the apocalypse and the fall of civilization as we know it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from not a Great Story which is what you would expect from a Terminator Movie. Who ever said the saying third times the charm, it certainly doesn't ring true to this film. Don't get me wrong I'm not saying it's bad at all. This is a good movie but is very anti-climatic and the pace is too rushed and fast, there seems to be little balance in the film. There are good classic key moments tho but it doesn't make the movie the Platinum Standard in comparison to the other two terminator films. I don't blame the director entirely, it is his interpretation of where the next film should go. There are lots of great ideas and good scenes but feels pasted together and not enough of them in comparison to the first two films. Killing Sarah Conner off was a bad idea IMO, but as they said what direction do we take the character and they just kill her off-screen. It would have been better if they had her killed off by the T-X... to fuel more aggression and leadership for the future war. They could have kept her in as her as the tough woman but losing the battle to cancer... that could be good as a potential storyline. Either way... The film does cameo Earl Boen as Dr Silberman but it feels more like last minute and that he has no purpose in this story. Still it's worth a watch but prepare for a disappointment. A good story, but not a Great Story which is what you would expect from a Terminator Movie.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A Change I am a huge fan of the first two Terminator movies. James Cameron does a great job with both of them. But #3 comes out with a different director, and it gets a different feel to it. It's not fair to give this movie a sub par rating because it is an okay movie. Just compared to the previous two, James Cameron directed movies, this one just dosen't stack up. Arnold Schwarzenegger again does a great job as "The Terminator" A decent movie, but watch the other two movies before this one.
