Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines

Released 2003 Rating 12A in UK
Director Jonathan Mostow Writer/s John Brancato, Michael Ferris
Starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Nick Stahl, Claire Danes, Kristanna Loken
Source of story Earlier Terminators, James Cameron and Gale Anne Hurd credited with having invented the characters.
Elevator Pitch John Connor has survived into young adulthood by living “off the grid” but the machines send back their latest Terminator the T-X to kill his future partner Kate Brewster. To protect her our old friend the CSM-101 is sent back, and so the chase resumes. But at this juncture Skynet is about to take over the world. Even with the help of the old Terminator our hero and heroine may not survive.
Content Two or three car chases, one involving a mobile crane, and another a hearse. Lots of automatic weapon fire, some explosions. And some helicopter crashes (wait for them).
A View Little beats the Terminator franchise for a fun ride, and while this was not quite Terminator 2, with Linda Hamilton at the top of her game, it was pretty OK. Nice to see Claire Danes soon to be famous as the off the wall spy in Homeland.
