Terminator Salvation (Director’s Blu-ray Review

Published 4 ago by Vic Holtreman. Updated December 2009 at 9:37 pm,

I’m finding there are some movies I like more upon a viewing. It could be that expectations are set aside (either or smashed upon the first that it’s easier to a movie a bit more… forgivingly. I certainly still don’t Terminator Salvation (click for my initial review), I’ll to admit I found myself it more the second time

Terminator Salvation is released on DVD and this week, and I’ll be you the specs and a review of the Blu-ray cut version right here.

The wasn’t the huge hit the studio was for in the U.S. bringing in only However it did much better bringing it’s worldwide to a respectable $371MM. As far as reviews go, it a 32% positive rating at Rotten with the average review 5/10 stars (I gave it

In our informal poll over at our Salvation contest. most are giving it 3 or 4 out of 5 stars.

The movie from lack of any real to the characters, little focus on Connor (miscast with Bale IMHO), and a story that concentrated on Marcus who while being about the thing in the movie, felt out of place in the fabric of the entire

The best thing about the are the action set pieces, and on Blu-ray a home theater set up they The picture quality is (pretty as usual) excellent, showing The disc makes ample use of sound and the subwoofer in particular a good thing as far as I’m concerned).

One thing to be aware of in the Director’s Cut of the film is that it does NOT the 30-40 minutes of additional that McG said it would when he talked about it this year – the extended is only about three longer (and yes, it the topless scene with Bloodgood). I don’t know happened to all that extra since this is supposed to be the Cut of the movie. The topless scene is (as far as I remember) the only brand new in the movie – the rest of the three are just extensions of existing in the movie with a bit more and violence.

Oh, and if you want to watch the Cut and you don’t have a DVD player, out of luck: That version is available on Blu-ray. The DVD version is sparse – I don’t believe it has any special features at all, but are the specs on the Blu-ray [Update on the DVD — apparently Target are offering a Director’s Cut/SE of the film on DVD. This is odd it’s not available at Amazon.com nor at Bros’ official store] :

One thing that me a bit was the lack of any top level menu, and I this isn’t specific to disc – I really wish some standard for Blu-ray was when it comes to the menu On DVDs there’s ALWAYS a top menu and usually you can just hit the button to skip all the trailers put up front.

On this (and other Blu-rays) you have to each opening trailer to get to the movie, and here it went INTO the movie instead of up a menu with the usual chapter selection, etc. You can it but it’s with the sub-menu option.

The “Re-forging the Future” and featurettes are interesting (the one more if you’re into effects and concept design). My takeaway from these was that they left me kind of bad for the people behind the

Even on films that very good most of the the folks working on them are so passionate and excited about the they’re working on, that I sorry for them when the doesn’t turn out to be as great as had hoped after putting all hard work into it. is also BD-Live content but since my player is not connected to the I wasn’t able to access

On the theatrical version there’s they call “Maximum Mode” or MMM. Instead of an audio commentary, you get picture in video segments where McG into the film to give insight into the film and his to the project. There are also a Terminator timeline and other segments that you can access viewing the film. MMM on this is a VERY cool feature and is one of the of Blu-ray over DVD.

It’s much more and interactive than a director’s and it includes a description of the alternate that McG wanted to do in which Connor becomes a Terminator at the end of the
