    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.
