"FREEZE! Don't move! Hands on your head! NOW!"

Terminator Salvation is the fourth installment of the Terminator saga. It's about John Connor, once again, doing his best to prevent the machines from eradicating the human race in the year 2018. It stars Christian Bale and an army of lipless tin men. My favorite character in the movie was that of the cute mute little Black girl, Star, played by Jada Grace Berry. If she chooses to maintain those characteristics into her real life, she'll for surely make somebody a real good wife someday.

Due to the fact that the Charlie's Angels movie director, "McG", was behind the helm of this film I was extremely pessimistic. That being said, it wasn't as disappointing as I suspected it might be, but I still think that this flick had plenty of room for improvement thanks to McG's less than stellar direction. For instance, who performs open heart surgery outdoors? And what kind of doctor uses an organ that has been pulverized by a Terminator's fist to transplant into a legendary war hero? Can the blood types even be compatible? If I, as an average Joe audience member, could figure out that Skynet's shutoff signal had the possibility of being traced back to its origin, why couldn't experienced military commanders foresee that particular outcome? Supposedly, the script was rewritten by many different writers just before filming, and it showed.

In my opinion, Starship Troopers is a superior action film to that of Terminator Salvation. Laugh at me all you want, but I still get misty-eyed at the scene involving Dizzy's demise (War can be so unforgiving and cruel *sniffle*). This film is worth viewing on cheap Tuesday and not worth purchasing the DVD for. I say this with confidence because the cut Moon Goodblood topless scene will be all over the internet in high definition anyways. So save yourself $25 and buy some lottery tickets with it. That will have a far better chance of paying off.
