Michael With The Terminator: Salvation Promotional Standup

Last night Tina and I went to see Terminator: Salvation film...  Which the special Terminator program that both of us saw at the San Diego Comic Con International last July whetted our appetite for.  Just one word for the film from me.... Riveting!

Moon Bloodgood as 'Blair Williams' was even better than what I had hoped for!  I've been kinda kidding that I was going to see the film because of her being in it, but she really came through in her role!  Ever since her role in Journeyman the TV Series, I've been looking forward to seeing her in this film.

Anton Yelchin as Kyle Reese was an interesting character, who we all know would become John Connor's father in the past.  This angle made the storyline even better.

Bryce Dallas Howard as Kate Connor was underexposed in the film, possibly due to too many main characters.  Nothing stand out there.

Common (Common Sense the rapper), was almost used as a cameo in most of the film, having only one main scene.

Christian Bale as John Connor just didn't come across as good in the film even though he had most of the film time.  Originally he was considered for the role that Sam Worthington had, that of Marcus Wright.   For me, Connor's role was kind of 'wooden', even though his was the starring character. Most of the story would take place around or about him, but I wasn't as involved as much personally with his character. 

That aside though, this film was non-stop action that kept my eyes glued to the Big Screen. Definitely worth the price of admission!  I'm not as big of a fan of the franchise as my wife Tina is.  She's seen all the films at the Big Screen and I'm interested to see her POV in an upcoming blog post.

Plus, I didn't view the earlier films again before seeing this film.  Yet I wasn't lost in this storyline.  There was enough lines giving homage to the earlier films giving it a tie-in to the franchise, but not 'continuity heavy' where a new viewer was totally lost with the time travel sequences.

BTW, the CGI is not overplayed in this film.  Even though it is grim and gritty in the future, all is not bleak.  There was a good mix of live action shots along with the CGI.  I would definitely give this film a Near Mint (NM 9.4) grade!
