Terminator Salvation (6/10)

For the first 20 minutes or so I couldn’t see why this film got such bad reviews. I was really enjoying it. And then they introduce the “love interest” and the story starts to focus on the jaded sci-fi trope of the robot who thinks he’s a man. There are plot holes galore and editing jumps that feel like place holders for commercials. We don’t care about the new terminator, all we want to see is the story of John Conner and Kyle Reese. At the very least, there are enough nods to fanboys to keep it watchable until the end (the digital surprise cameo is jaw-dropping). But the last moments of this film which are soooo cringe-worthy will make you eject the DVD with a sour taste in your mouth.
