in the year 2004, skynet system is activated and it perceives humans a threat, so it decides to eradicate human in the event known as the judgement day. fourteen years later, john conner leads a team to attack a skynet base and discovers that the machines captures humans for experiment of a new type of terminator incorporating living tissue, the new terminator is known as t-800.

the machine wants to destroy all mankind, however it has a priority list which is kinda weird a little bit at first. john conner is the second of the list, the first name is a man named kyle reese. nobody knows who kyle reese is, except john conner, he knows that kyle reese is his father (which later kyle will be sent into the past! and that will start terminator all over again) so basically john conner must fight the war against the machines and try to save his father’s life.

although there are many flaws in terminator: salvation, it is still entertaining to watch all the actions, explosion, destruction, and huge robots. this is a kind of movie that you have to see only in the cinema. i love how they add references here and there to the terminator and terminator: judgement day, like how john conner gets the scar on his face, etc. and as far as i concern, terminator 3 never exists.
