Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines
This is the one role for which Arnold Schwarzenegger will be long remembered,and rightfully so. He manages to jump back into being The Terminator with ease. It has been ten years since John Connor (Nick Stahl the son in In The Bedroom) and his mother supposedly averted the nuclear war that would devastate the planet and allow the machines to take over. His mother is gone now and John wonders if they really were really successful in changing the future. His uncertainty bears fruit when an unstoppable Termanatrix, the T-X (Kristanna Loken), enters the early 21st century on a mission to kill John and one of his lieutenants, Kate Brewster (Claire Danes). Following the T-X through the portal is the reliable, obsolete T-101 (Arnold Schwarzenegger), sent to protect John and Kate. Eventually, the human targets end up on the run from the T-X. Their goal is the same as it was in Terminator 2 - to avert a nuclear catastrophe. But this time, the odds are even more heavily stacked against them and time is not on their side. Kate Brewster's father is in command of the Skynet project, a computer program which will cause machines to become self-aware if it is ever activated. Conner and Kate Brewster (Clare Danes) with the help of the outmatched T-101, must stay one step ahead of termination, when they learn that they have only three hours in which to reach Kate's dad and stop Skynet or else all humankind will become extinct. Inevitably some of Arnold's humorous one-liners tend to contain a bit too much self-parody, but Kristanna Loken copies Arnold's mannerisms with a fair degree of success although she sometimes lacks something in terms of pure physical intimidation. The action sequences and pacing are outstanding and director Jonathan Mostow (U-571) does a fine job taking over from James Cameron who directed the first two Terminator movies. This one will probably be as succesful as its predecessors.
