Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines
Scott Hardie: “It was ok.”
Summer action fans will get their fix, as this film brings violent, pulverizing force back into action films missing since 'The Matrix' made them graceful and lithe. One final big action scene to top it off would have been nice, but what's there is exhilarating. The main problem is that it's almost totally derivative of the first two films, its main creative impulse seeming to be, 'Hey, let's have a female terminator this time!' It desecrates T2's nobility and depth while bringing nothing new or interesting to the table. Blah.
