Rated PG-13 · 116 minutes · 2009

Action, Science fiction
The fourth film in the 25 year-old franchise is easily the worst. Christian Bale stars as John Connor, a leader in the resistance against the machines that wiped out most of humanity at the end of Terminator 3. Sam Worthington offers an amusing performance as Marcus Wright, an ex-con who donates his body to science and awakens to a mighty big surprise. The beginning and ending of director McG’s film are so awful that they take the air out of the middle part. It’s a good-looking movie, with a decent action sequence here and there. But the dialogue is often dreadful; it would be a good idea to jettison the writers and director for the next installment. This franchise needs another fresh start.

Colorado Springs Independent Sighs of the apocalypse It's appropriate for this movie to come off as mechanical. A return to cutesy banter with Edward Furlong is the last thing any self-respecting Terminator fan wants. by Jonathan Kiefer 05/21/2009
