Verdict: An action movie that has a lot of room for improvement
So, one of the highly anticipated blockbuster which isn't that great after all.
The story has some twist - but to be frank, I was expecting more machines in-action.
What I could see is the Harvester that looks cool - and it's able to release motorterminators to chase after enemies (or, human) that looks something like a "cool gadget"
But that's it - their action takes less than 20% (or maybe 10%?) of the appearance in the movie.
And yes, there were too few machines - Skynet would only send so few of T-600 to roam in the city? It's better that they don't send at all, cos one robot proved to be an apparent loser to Kyle Reese.
How cool would it be, if we could see a group of T-600 marching in the cities.
It's apparent that they want to leave the best for the next movie, so all I can hope is that, those machines will really be put into action in the next installment.
FYI, if you are looking forward to see Christian Bale in full action, you'll be disappointed - his appearance were equalled by Sam Worthington - yes, one might wonder Sam is in fact the lead actor instead.
And one last FYI, with the disappointment on the machines, I could only (and only) look forward to Transformers 2.
