Terminator Salvation Blu-ray

The fourth Terminator movie on Blu-ray. But is there much on under the film’s often visuals?

Every shot declares a resolutely serious McG in Salvation ‘s behind the featurette. Orchestrating an army of effects technicians, a near budget, and, perhaps impressively, a battle-weary Christian you can’t doubt the determination and of the man. For while Salvation is the franchise’s attempt at forging a new post-Schwarzenegger, it’s also McG the concerted effort to prove a serious director.

And McG wasn’t Salvation . on Blu-ray especially, incredible. Every shot of it. The behind the scenes featurettes a picture of every man, and child doing their to honour James Cameron’s True to their word, all of dollars look like went on screen.

  Terminators, old and new, flood the desert. explode.

The apocalyptic future has looked so good.

But in nailing the McG has forgotten the biggest and most thing of all: a story.  T3 John D. Brancato and Michael return and try to fill in the Terminator by showing us how John Connor and Reese came to be (this is a Terminator romcom — John Met Kyle). Yet as interesting as relationship could be, Salvation is a desperately in need of some

Where Cameron’s original was efficient, McG’s is wandering and It has no real threat, no conflict, and little drama, rendering the rugged beauty somewhat It’s all icing with no

The streamlined simplicity of the first Terminator s and their foe’s pursuit (so perfectly captured by Biehn’s Reese in the original as a that will not stop until you are …) is sorely

Instead, the film gives us lead characters — John Connor, Anton young Kyle Reese, and Sam Terminator-in-waiting Marcus — a single purpose between It leaves Salvation frustratingly a Terminator film not as chase but as road movie, with the characters to hold the attention.

Most interesting of these is Reese. Almost unrecognisable his Chekhov in Star Trek . he a completely believable young despite looking nothing like him. When on screen, the film sparks to

Shame then, that given the least screen of the three.

Salvation has the air of a muddied one that started out focusing on the young Reese but then up the Connor role once came on board. It’s the biggest misstep. If the last instalments taught us anything, that John Connor that interesting a character. His has already been drawn, his arc already written. In Salvation . is given little to work beyond a man driven to do what he to.

What’s most alarming, is that he lacks any screen There’s lots of shouting, and gravel voice carried from his Batman, but nothing it.

Worthington’s Marcus, meanwhile, has his revealed far too late in the film, him a blank canvas for much of the time.   CGI Arnie toward the end reminds us what missing. Without him, has a hole where its heart be. And perhaps just as importantly, it any humour.

Granted, a step away T3 ‘s often camp was needed to inject some needed gravity back the franchise. But did it have to be so grim?

McG fails to maintain a consistent of the Terminators themselves. After the comical Kristanna Loken and of T3 . Salvation ‘s opening a Terminator ruthless and unequivocally An early scene establishes the of a Terminator — even in half, it has Bale’s Connor for survival and breathless. It’s a choreographed scene.

Along a stunning mid-film set piece of and Reese pursued by foot, and air it shows McG’s sure of action. Sadly, the film loses its way, turning its into misfiring drones. Or Bond villains unwilling to a fatal blow.

You can see McG’s Terminator and T2 a fair few times. is swimming in subtle, and not so subtle, to Cameron. A smashed-out truck here, a Guns N’ song there.  But the weight of films hangs heavy proceedings, much of it by the film’s own A factory-set climax that T2 ‘s own goes a step too crossing over from to carbon copy.

It serves only to remind how a storyteller Cameron is. In his world, serves the story. In McG’s, there instead of it.

True, it great, and you can’t but wonder at the splendour on show. But like of Salvation . there’s nothing the surface.

Suffice to say, is a perfect showcase for Salvation aesthetic and aural charms.

The 5.1 track and 1080p content impress your friends and your neighbours. We also get a Cut, which is pretty to distinguish from the Theatrical Cut here. An extended shot of Bloodgood undressing in the rain may be the notable addition.

On the extras front, there’s here to enjoy than the film. First up is Blu-ray Cinechat, a twitter-style feature allows you to chat to buddies only appearing on screen the movie. Interesting concept, the tutorial’s example text of writing This part up is great.

I love being to chat with you guys! put you off straight away if that’s the of people you’ll be dealing And voiceover man’s use of the word four times in one sentence get very creepy.

Next up is Movie Mode, which alongside the feature as a series of featurettes and trivia tracks. a bit odd, with McG dressed in jeans and tucked-in shirt a virtual ‘how did we do it’ two screens running behind Cheesy, yes, but stick it and you’ll be treated to a richly breakdown of the creation of the film.
