CS Commentary: Bottom line? Terminator and T2 remain the only ‘great’ Terminator films. Though Cameron’s name is one of ‘five’ on the story credit, his fingerprints are really nowhere to be found on this one. We’re guessing he was too busy with the Avatar sequel – and it shows. The story is all over the place and the laughs are at the characters not with them. Grade: C-, and that’s being generous.
