The Terminator series is a strange one. The beginning and the end were both set up in the first movie, and each new installment adds to the middle.
In this case, I think the fact that almost 1/4th of this movie is a non-stop car chase scene proves that not a whole lot was added this time around.
I think I somehow preferred the kid version of John Connor.
If I can’t have Sarah Connor in this, then Claire Danes is a great substitute.
What can I say? The CGI was decent, and they still threw a few practical effects in as well.
A Victoria’s Secret billboard was used within the first few minutes of the movie for a “joke”, but since that’s pretty much the only thing there was, I won’t count it.
The best thing this movie has going for it in this department is that it’s part of a series.
