And it had enough throw backs to the older movies to keep me nudging my friends every other minute saying shit like"That's the Guns n Roses song from the chase scene in part 2!!"
Sadly, Salvation has been getting a lot of crap online from critics... and I don't it deserves it. I think the movie accomplished exactly what it set out to do: and that's deliver more Terminator goodness for fans who want more Terminator while keeping things some what fresh.
Remember that even though the movie is set in the future, it ultimately serves as a prequel. Which means that the space that it has to play in is some what limited. This isn't Citizen Kane meets Blade Runner. It's an action movie with Sci-Fi elements. Sure it's not as mind blowingly genre bending as part 2. But few movies are these days.
If you love the old Terminator movies, and you watch em over and over and wish for more... this baby has the goods. I'm so gonna get the DVD, so I can give my Ultimate edition of part 2 a break :D
My buddy Albie and I had some time before the movie, so we decided to get productive in my studio.
Have a listen :D
