Terminator Salvation

Terminator Salvation was exactly as I expected it to be. Loud, grim, and full of my three favorite movie aspects: lots of screaming, gunfights and fiery explosions. And just when I thought it was slowing down there was more screaming, gun battles, and fiery explosions.
Needless to say I liked it a lot. The story in short, as to drop no spoilers, follows the adventures of John Conner and Kyle Reese before they met up.
Christian Bale as John Conner does a good Job at being Christian Bale in a John Conner outfit, Conner’s wife Kate was played by Bryce Dallas Howard the cool naked chick from Lady in the water. Howard demonstrated that she can stand and look contemplative, on the edge of tears very proficiently.
I have no Idea where the hell Sam Worthington came from but he did a great job as Marcus Wright.
Moon Bloodgood, who played a scantily clad Indian chick in Pathfinder and a stripper on CSI was ok but under developed as far as her character was concerned, and was fully dressed for Salvation (I can’t wait for the directors cut).
Helena Bonham Carter who reminds me of every hot, yet psycho chick I dated in my twenties was great as the face of Skynet. Oops, was that a spoiler, not really if you think about it when movie producers are trying to find a psycho chick as the face of anything, Carter is usually at the top of the list.
If you are going to see Salvation with the idea of great writing, deep social themes, a happy ending, daisies blowing in the spring breeze atop hills of green then this is not your movie.
I saw one review, I will not mention his name, but it rhymes with Guy Smur, Stating that the movie is grim, muscular, thundering and Joyless. No Crap Mr. Slap, It’s a movie about Robots trying to exterminate all of the humans on earth. By the way don’t read Smur’s Review unless you want Spoilers.
Any’hoo Salvation will assault your senses, make you jump, and if you are a twelve year old boy trapped in a forty-six year old body like me, you will be chomping at the bit for the video game to come out.

Oh yeh what’s my scale? It has been a while since I posted here….UUUHHHMM I will give it 4 out of 5 stainless steel skulls For fun and action one short for writing, there was not to much originality here.
