Worthington Delivers Salvation
User Score: 81°

Just got back from Terminator Salvation and I have to say I had a fantastic time tonight. Some superb action sequences and the scene where a certain "someone" comes out of nowhere with that heavy-handed classic theme in the background made this film a worthwhile experience.

Sam Worthington gave a great performance as the centerpiece to the overall story and the film itself continued the arc of humanity vs. machines crossing the lines into morality. In Terminator 2, Cameron hammered down the father-son issues with Connor as Arnold plays the substitute father figure that young John never had growing up.

The same arc of human decision/fate themes were used in this tale with Marcus never truly escaping his fate but playing a difference with the decision process behind how he reached it.

While I consider the very end to be a bit over-the-top, I have no problems saying that Terminator Salvation was worth every cent (and more) and it served as a good lead-in story to this new trilogy.

Should be noted that ILM scored another homerun with that "cameo" as well.

I'm looking forward to watching it again soon.

Solid B-plus experience.
