While not the best action movie ever made, it is certainly a better effort than T3 - and another situation where complete snobbery blinds people from enjoying the merits. The acting was mostly wooden as McG seemingly has no idea what to do with actors, but the action sequences were fantastic and, despite the inconsistencies, it was nice to get a glimpse of the post-apocalyptic world that T2 merely touched on.
I'm a sucker for the Terminator franchise, so I was really anticipating something of a reboot after the train wreck of T3. The exposition in the first half hour of the film had good pacing and set the right tone of loneliness and devastation, but then the plot just went off the deep end and never came back. Major disappointment.
