Trivia

Concerning his casting, J.K. Simmons admitted that although this was not necessarily the type of movie he was looking to be in, he liked the script enough to accept the role. Another reason to join the cast was for the opportunity to work with Jai Courtney, of whom his daughter is a big fan. After learning this, Courtney taped a special birthday message for her.

Goofs

(at around 1h 27 mins) Heavy vehicles, such as school buses use air brake systems. When a loss of pressure is experienced in the system, such as when John destroys the air tanks, the brakes auto-apply. The bus would therefore come to an immediate halt, not continue on with "no brakes" as is seen in the movie. See more »

Kyle Reese: [narrating] Before they died, my parents told me stories about how the world once was; what it was like long before I was born; before the war with the machines. They remembered a green world, vast and beautiful, filled with laughter and hope for the future. It's a world I never knew. By the time I was born, all this was gone.

Exhilarating installment in the notorious series with noisy action ,breathtaking fights , nail-biting pursuits , and abundant special effects
14 September 2018 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

The continuing saga of humanity's war with the machines who are run by Skynet the artificial intelligence that decided that humanity needs to be eradicated. John Connor (Jason Clarke), the one leading the human rebels against Skynet, has a scheme to destroy Skynet . As the tough leader of the human resistance sends Sgt. Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney) back to 1984 to protect Sarah Connor (Emilia Clarke) and safeguard the future, an incredible turn of deeds creates a fractured time-line . Then , a futuristic and menacing cyborg suitably robotic is also sent to present-day Earth . But they are mercilessly pursued by the ominious robot, ultimate killing machine Cop / T-1000 (Byung-Hun Lee) to avoid to live the hero destinated to become the great liberator . There also appears Guardian , the old hunk , called the grandfather , Arnold Schwarzenegger , to reckoning with the past and future . Realizing their nightmare isn't over, they decide to stop running and focus on preventing the developing of Skynet. ¨The rules have been reset¨.

Nice follow-up with frenetic action , thrills , tension and suspense from start to finish . Interesting and twisted screenplay by Patrick Lussier based on characters created byJames Cameron .& Gale Anne Hurd . Pacing is just right in this thrilling and exhilarating non-stop action movie . There's a welcome sprinkling of deadpan humor to bring you relief from the bludgeoning action too . This is the first film in the series to not feature animatronic Terminators created by special effects artist Stan Winston, due to his death in 2008. Instead, the animatronics were created by effects studio Legacy Effects, an enterprise formed out of Winston's former workshop staff. An explosive thriller with Arnie repeating his known lines as ¨I'll be back¨ . Arnie develops enough traits and command of slang to bring additional veins of laughs to the almost un-stoppable and noisy action . And other cold-blooded villian on the starring's trail well played by Byung-Hun Lee as Cop / T-1000 . The twists and turns of time and logic will amaze you almost as much as the liquid metal effects and the highway chases . The important main cast formed by Arnold Schwarzenegger , Jason Clarke , Emilia Clarke , Jai Courtney are well accompanied by a notorius support cast such as J.K. Simmons , Dayo Okeniyi , Matt Smith ,Courtney B. Vance , Gregory Alan Williams , Sandrine Holt and Byung-Hun Lee . It packs a thrilling and moving musical score by Lorne Balfe . As well as a colorful and evocative cinematography by Kramer Morgenthau . The motion picture was professionally directed by Alan Taylor (Thor .: The dark world , Game of thrones) .

This series starts with ¨Terminator¨ 1984 by James Cameron with Linda Hamilton , Michael Biehn , Lance Henriksen , Paul Winfield . ¨Terminator 2 Judgment Day¨ , 1991 , by James Cameron with Linda Hamilton , Arnold , Edward Furlong , Robert Patrick . ¨Terminator 3 Rise of the machines¨, 2003, by Jonathan Mostow with Nick Stahl , Claire Danes and Arnold Schwarzenegger . ¨Terminator Salvation¨ 2009 by McG with Christian Bale , Sam Worthington , Anton Yelchin , Bryce Dallas Howard. And TV series ¨Terminator the Sarah Connor chronicles¨ 2008 with Lena Headey , Summer Glau , Thomas Dekker , Richard T Jones .
