Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines

Arnold Schwarzenegger returns to his role as The Terminator alongside Nick Stahl and Claire Danes in the third Terminator film, set 10 years after the previous entry.

It's been a decade since John Connor saved Earth from Judgment Day, and he's now living under the radar, steering clear of using anything Skynet can trace. That is, until he encounters T-X, a robotic assassin ordered to finish what T-1000 started. Good thing Connor's former nemesis, the Terminator, is back to aid the now adult Connor … just like he promised.

Terminator 3 is essentially a B movie, content to be loud, dumb and obvious.

T3 - a knackered old sequel if ever there was one - basically retreads the plot of T1, with some twists and transpositions.

Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines may lack the mythic pow of the 1984 original and the visionary thrill of T2, but it's a potent popcorn movie that digs in its hooks and doesn't let go until an ending that ODs on apocalyptic hoo-ha.

Essentially one long chase and fight, punctuated by comic, campy or simplistic dialogue.

An expertly paced and efficient sci-fi thrill machine, 'T3' effectively marries impressive action sequences with persuasive storytelling and its star's uniquely appealing style of 'No' drama - as in no reaction, no expression, no emotion of any kind.

A sleek, satisfying return to the series' supercharged B-picture roots, this is certainly not the disaster Cameron fans feared. In franchise terms this is like a 'lesser Bond' - but it's still a great way to kill (for) two hours.
