Having just seen Terminator 4 at the Dendy Cinema in Civic, I feel compelled to review it.
The one word review: Brilliant.
The slightly more wordy review: An excruciatingly slow start which makes you wonder if there will ever be a plot, but the slow start really builds the post-apocalyptic atmosphere of confusion and pure survival extremely well, and leads in to a great middle, and brilliant end.
Best of all, it seems to completely skip the fact that there was a third Terminator movie (eg. T3’s story is entirely optional in the grand scheme of things, which is great because it was a shocker of a film).
Sequel likely. I give it five stars (he said, digging around for that star graphic)
