terminator_salvation_bale_worthingtonPlot: Set in post-apocalyptic 2018, John Connor is the man fated to lead the human resistance against Skynet and its army of Terminators. But the future Connor was raised to believe in is altered in part by the appearance of Marcus Wright, a stranger whose last memory is of being on death row. Connor must decide whether Marcus has been sent from the future, or rescued from the past. As Skynet prepares its final onslaught, Connor and Marcus both embark on an odyssey that takes them into the heart of Skynet’s operations, where they uncover the terrible secret behind the possible annihilation of mankind.

Ok…plain and simple, this film reminded me of a mixture of: War of the Worlds, 28 Days Later, and I Am Legend.  If you liked 2 of the previous film, I recommend this.

I recommend this film for anyone ages 14+ and give it 3/5 stars.
