A fantastic way to renew the franchise. Usually I am not a fan of alternate timeline storyarcs, as it's usually done badly and just an attempt to restore some credibility to a failing franchise or dig themselves out of bad writing. But it really worked here. Finally meeting Johns father, seeing skynet born, and anthropomorphised (thanks to Matt Smith), and then destroying it before it became a threat (well seemingly anyway), all of this worked great. I really enjoyed the father daughter relationship between t-800 and Sarah Connor, it really just worked fantastically especially with the younger Emilia Clarke playing Sarah Connor. I enjoyed this movie over the other three entirely, I feel that the focus was the story this time and not just the ass kicking action, though all the terminator movies have a rich, and well established story.

Not as bad as the critics say... But when compared against others in the franchise, this movie doesn't come close to stacking up. Poorly casted, glaring potholes, and I really didn't like how the messed around with the timeline. But it was nice to see Arnie back in the saddle with a few good Arnie lines.

Better than i thought it would be. Arnold is great of course and his injection of periodic dry "terminator humour" made it for me.
