Should be lower, but lots of things blow up. I was very let down, and feel lit went against the Terminator way.
Poor Acting Poor Story
Anton Yelchin is the only thing I really liked about this movie.
Ya, bit of a letdown for me as well. It was a hell of a lot better than the new X-Men that I wasted $10 and 2 hours of my life on the week before, though. Plus I got the added joy of trying to explain the intricacies of time travel to the girl sitting next to me- which is pretty much impossible. Anyway, stuff went boom and it was somewhat enjoyable on the big screen, but I'm sure I'll never watch it again. 6/10

Interesting, I watched American Beauty a few years ago and thought it was good but nothing spectacular. After reading this, I might have to watch it again.
