The reviews for Terminator Salvation are out.
The Rotten Tomatoes consensus:
With storytelling as robotic as the film's iconic villains, Terminator Salvation offers plenty of great effects but lacks the heart of the original films.
Gee, I wonder where storytelling with heart might've gone?
Now, just for fun, let me quote from a few of the reviews...
There's not much here in the way of way of humanity, even with the strong feminine presence of actresses...It seems the machines have already won.
Gee, I wonder where the humanity might've gone?
there's not so much acting here as there is yelling at different volumes.
Gee, I wonder where the acting might've gone?
(BTW, just as an aside: "Goodykoontz?" Best name ever.)
Fails because it doesn't really get you excited about the return of the franchise... and a lot of that comes down to the cheesy writing and bad acting.
Gee, I wonder where the excitement might've gone?
Way to put all your money on the right horse, Fox.
