In the aftermath of Judgement Day and the takeover by the machines, John Connor (Christian Bale, The Dark Knight), the destined leader of the human resistance, must counterattack Skynet's devastating plan to terminate mankind. As Connor rallies his underground street fighters for a last, desperate battle, he realises that to save the future he must rescue his own father, Kyle Reese (Anton Yelchin, Star Trek).

Finally got to see this, and really enjoyed it. Wasn't expecting much after T3 was so forgettable, but really enjoyed it.

Decent script, solid direction/editing with the action scenes, a CGI Arnie appearance, Michael Ironside, good fun!

I liked this as well, was a different approach to the Terminator series and I think it's a shame that they appear to have shelved it as it was supposed to be a trilogy.
