You know a movie doesn’t have the best reputation when the director publicly apologizes to fans more than a decade later, but that’s exactly what happened earlier this year when McG held up his hands and admitted Terminator Redemption wasn’t very good, although he did stress that he shot an ending that wasn’t terrible.
Ever since we caught our first glimpse of the post-apocalyptic hellscape in James Cameron’s 1984 classic original, audiences have been dreaming of a whole terminator Story set in the future wasteland, pitting a shrinking band of human survivors against the unstoppable insurgency of the machines. That’s exactly what they got, but most of them wish they hadn’t.
A few set pieces are decent, and the late Anton Yelchin steals the show as Kyle Reese, though Terminator Redemption is brought to the point by the fact that many people until then thought impossible; a Christian Bale lead that was uninteresting, uninvolved and one dimensional.
Mediocre reviews and a paltry box office threw plans for a trilogy into smoke, only for the franchise to learn nothing and do exactly the same thing twice more Genisys and dark fate to set terminator Brand at a standstill for the time being. However, viewers at home love to see low-key blockbusters where things are booming, which has led to the fourth installment of the saga being rekindled on-demand.
According to FlixPatrol, Terminator Redemption has been steadily climbing the Rakuten leaderboard this weekend, and the only debate as to how good it is comes when pitted against its underwhelming successors, as nothing can match the all-time great opening duo, or even the underrated reach duo rise of the machines when you’re feeling generous
