Netflix Review: Terminator Salvation

Terminator Salvation
Synopsis: The machines have taking over, now it's up to John Conner and the resistance to defeat them.
Pros: Good action sequences, cool shots... Sound effects.
Cons: Third act gets kind of hokey.
Overview: I was expecting a Transformers 2 type of movie, since many people I've talked didn't care for this movie either. So, with that low bar set in my mind, it actually turned out better than expected. The action scenes are pretty good and not annoying. Some dramatic scenes seemed forced and the third act went the way of a videogame a bit too much. However, despite this, I did enjoy the film. It's by no means Terminator 2, but still enjoyable.
