Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines (2003)


Arnold Schwarzenegger

Directed by Jonathan Mostow

When I think about Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, all that comes to mind is destruction, fight, explosions and more action to fill in the space of over 100 minutes. You can’t just find yourself hating this movie; they filled up all the spaces with intense action scenes and only made use of dialogue when necessary.

As the last movie Arnold Schwarzenegger did before he took the governor’s office, it was one to remember, as he reprise his role as Terminator model number T-101, and he took the movie to the cleaners. The same thing like Terminator 2 in 1991, the other Terminator he is up against is of a higher model than him, in Terminator 2: Judgment Day the T-101 was up against the T-1000 (played by Robert Patrick), who had a mimetic poly-alloy (liquid metal) structure, who has the ability of shape shifting into another human.
Here in Terminator 3 he is up against a TX (played by Kristanna Loken) who has all the features of the T-1000 and more, she is the Terminator terminator, who can also take control of other machines.

This movie boasts of excellent cinematography, and although the movie is not directed by James Cameron (who directed the first two films in the series and created the characters), the new director Jonathan Mostow (Surrogates (2009) with Bruce Willis) did a nice job.

The plot picks up 10 years after the events of Judgment Day, Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton from both movies) is dead and John is living his life off the grid.
All of a sudden we see a familiar site; the machines from the future have sent a terminator, this time it is in the form of a lady.

But soon close behind, the human resistance also sent a terminator (the T-101) to go save the humans in the past. Note I said humans not John, because the machines decided to take out all John’s key people in the future since they can’t seem to pin point where John was at this time in the past.

But things got complicated when the TX stumbled upon John, so again the race continues to save his life and to kill him.

T3 is not great but it is good, Terminator 2  owns the show when it comes to the movies in the franchise, but after you have seen 1, then 2 there is no reason to stop till you see this one, then after you have seen this wonderful movie, then you can stop. Terminator Salvation is absolutely nonsense.
