"[With] dark Nietzschean insinuations and ferocious performances from Christian Bale and Steve Zahn."

"In McG's new world order, the machines now rule with enforcers of every shape imaginable roaming the the land....[T]here are enough pyrotechnics and heavy artillery to feel like Armageddon squared....Los Angeles Times "The first two-thirds of the film features an array of impressive setpieces that bring the trademark TERMINATOR action sensibility -- quivering flesh and fragile machingery versus the pitiless approach of unfeeling circuits -- into a dusty, post-nuclear hellscape on loand from THE ROAD WARRIOR."A.V. Club "[The movie] has a brute integrity lacking in some of the other seasonal franchise movies....[The action is] loud and blunt, a symphony of screaming gears, anguished torque and thumping collisions of metal and flesh."New York Times "The world McG presents to us is scorched and hostile, and the action is startling and visceral. Significantly, TERMINATOR SALVATION takes itself far more seriously than its predecessors."Washington Post "Mr. Worthington's specialty is taking command of the camera. It's fascinating to watch him dominate scene after scene with his coiled energy, compelling voice and quick intelligence."Wall Street Journal "Bale brings the role his usual stylish, seething edge..."Entertainment Weekly0.2121972
