"Terminator" was a gritty, hard-as-concrete actioner, creating the legendary, iconic Terminator as a soulless, merciless killing machine, and making Arnold a big star.

"T-2" offered a gripping story, cutting-edge F/X, set new standards for action-movies, and made the Terminator more human - he was like a father to the young John Connor, and brought humour into the series.

"T-3" sees another kind of Terminator - he is out to save and protect, but he is neither the loveable Terminator from "T-2" nor the bad one from "Terminator" - again giving Arnold the chance to place some cool on-liners and setting the stage for some cool gags. But "T-3" is neither as gripping as "Terminator" nor as standard-setting as "T-2" - it has a tendency to popcorn-action-movie.


Sarah Connor has died of Leukemia, and John Connor - now in his twenties - is still hiding - no address, no phone, no relationships. He doesn't believe that it's really over despite what happened in T-2.

And he is right. Another Terminator - the T-X (Kristanna Loken) arrives from the future. Her target: John Connors Lieutnants from his future fight against the machines.

But when she is out to terminate Kate Brewster, she also finds John Connor - and the hunt is on ....

The Kate Brewster from the future has sent another T-800 to protect herself and John Connor. The T-800 (Arnold Schwarzenegger) once again is up against the odds and a far superior Terminator - the T-X, nicknamed the "Terminatrix".

This time, it's not "good Arnold" like in T-2. This Terminator has been reprogrammed after terminating John Connor in the future by Kate Brewster (John's wife-to-be), but he is not following John's orders this time - no "hasta la vista, baby" this time - which gives him a rougher edge (and some good gags).

The Terminator will again be successful - his goal is to ensure John and Kate survive, and they do. But it is not his goal to save the world from Skynet and Judgement Day ....
