God no! It should really have ended after 2. I actually liked Salvation, because it didn't tamper with the timeline and stuck with a straightforward future war movie. If they have the main characters jumping around time, when's that going to end? Are we going to have John Connor going back to 1955 to make Sarah's parents meet up and fall in love to create Sarah in the future. Give it a rest.
I am kind of on the fence. I have not really done the research into answering some of the questions I have about it. Like, how is the T-800, a robot, aging? I agree that there have been lots of time jumps and it can get quite confusing.
I am very excited. Using time travel to tinker with the fundamental premises of the movie is a clever idea. I agree that it probably should have ended with "Judgment Day" but this movie certainly looks more engaging than unimaginative crap like T3.
I am confused as to why people keep asking why a Terminator would look "old." If they are covered with a layer of living flesh, wouldn't that flesh age? Is it impossible to conceive that they might want a robot that gave the illusion of aging, if it intended to spend years on a mission? (They never really make it clear what Terminators are expected to do once they complete their mission. Didn't Arnold say at one point that they cannot self-terminate?)
I am hoping this one will jump the gap, as I enjoyed Terminator and, to a degree, T2, but took a miss on the others. Since they are playing with time travel, there is some wiggle room, but like Highlander, there's been some finagling with the basic premise. And yeah, I know they are just movies...
