Nervy, silly, almost admirably misguided attempt to give the 31-year-old franchise a massive cybernetic facelift.

The ending has one WTF moment that lacks credibility, even in this logic-defying loopy universe. But by then, you'll have most likely given in - and just accepted this as the barmiest Terminator yet.

It's as if it has gone back in time to murder our memories of the ancestral first film and crush the series' reputation.

The film almost completely falls apart in the second half when it becomes as loud as it is tedious.

The problem is that nothing carries much weight - not the stilted romance between Sarah and Kyle, not the effect-driven action sequences, not even the threat of apocalypse, with billions of lives supposedly in the balance.

This terminator is past its expiration date.

It somehow lovingly homages a great film while pissing all over it at the same time.

Part remake, part remix, part sequel. But it doesn’t add up to a worthy successor for the James Cameron originals.
