Well letting Bale off the hook is a mistake imo. What his character was going to be doing in the next two films, should they get made, was where he would be needed.

With the film only at $122m US domestic it no doubt has underperformed. Its global numbers help keep the franchise alive however having brought in $324 WW.

The to date domestic total of $123m for Salvation is not.

Re: Terminator: Salvation Discuss/Grade <Spoilers>

I've been hearing some news about the DVD and Blu-Ray releases for the film from online sources.

Apparently the DVD release will be barebones while the Blu-Ray will have all the Special Features. That may change, but its not expected to.

I doubt the DVD release will be excluded special features like that. It just strikes me as unlikely--Warner Bros. (or whoever is releasing the disc) doesn't want to alienate half their fanbase.

On that note, will this be the extended director's cut, because this film needs to be released in a longer form.

DVD Active is also suggesting, now, that there will be no bonus features on the DVD and that WB really is only going to be putting the special features on the Blu-Ray.

Yeah! I can understand a Terminator being arrested but these guys are trying to save the world and us normal people keep fucking things up for them.

Superman shouldn't allow himself to be arrested though. He is too nice.

Why don't the police go arrest some of them super villains.

Re: Terminator: Salvation Discuss/Grade <Spoilers>

So I saw Terminator Salvation a few weeks back but I didn't post my thoughts because I wasn't sure if they were truly genuine or premptive. Well, I saw it again recently and I gotta admit: I really liked it.

It's not a perfect movie by any means, but it's very entertaining with some heartfelt characters. The action sequences are also utterly fantastic. The first sequence with Conner and the helicopter in one shot just blew me away. Everything else was just really captivating both in a visual and story sense. These sequences really pushed the story forward.

McG also got some really good performances out of his actors. Christian Bale was a little one dimensional but he was still as solid as ever. Sam Worthington had this gruff quality that translated well. Anton Yelchin probably gave the best performance of the bunch. I really liked his Kyle Reese. And Moon Bloodgood stole the female spotlight from Bryce Dallas Howard. She was very good.

I just overall really enjoyed the film, and I apologize for coming late to the party. The ending was kind of cliché and trite how it obviously set up a sequel but you know I hope they do one now. With McG at the helm. I know a lot of people didn't like this but I gotta say I much prefer it to Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.

It is.

I mean, really. Severe eye trauma would be permanent.

Glad you liked it as well. I agree and so many of the "problems" with the film by the haters have been debunked or explained away on prior pages in this thread.

It'll be dissapointing if they don't follow-up now that the pieces are in place for further installments. Its going to finish up with a domestic total of $125m.
