Editorial Reviews

A decade has passed since John Connor (NICK STAHL) helped prevent Judgment Day and save mankind from mass destruction. Now 25, Connor lives "off the grid" - no home, no credit cards, no cell phone and no job. No record of his existence. No way he can be traced by Skynet - the highly developed network of machines that once tried to kill him and wage war on humanity. Until, out of the shadows of the future steps the T-X (KRISTANNA LOKEN), Skynet's most sophisticated cyborg killing machine yet. Sent back through time to complete the job left unfinished by her predecessor, the T-1000, this machine is as relentless as her human guise is beautiful. Now Connor's only hope for survival is the Terminator (ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER), his mysterious former assassin. Together, they must triumph over the technologically superior T-X and forestall the looming threat of Judgment Day - or face the apocalypse and the fall of civilization as we know it.

5.0 out of 5 stars T3 in HD November 2, 2006
Format:HD DVD
I am a big fan of the terminator series. I think the story is one of the best ever concieved as it has alot to do with whats really going on in the world. Will artificial intelligence ever reach a point were it becomes self aware? Its a very interesting question and I think that is one of the reasons why it has been so successful as a series. This is also one of the only trilogys that I feel still has alot of potential for future movies. I think we really need a terminator film that is actually set in the future where the terminators live and with the recent announcment of T4 most likly being made, hopefully we will get just that.

As for T3, it is without a doubt the worst film of the 3 but with that being said I still really enjoyed this film. Alot of the people that disliked it did so because they said it went back on everything that was established in T2. I am not one of these people and I really like the aspect of this film that turned around and said Judgement day is inevitable. Its without a doubt the single best twist to this entire story in my opinion because in reality it really is. Technology will continue to drive forward with computers getting better and better and no matter what you do to stop it, someone else will pop up and continue the research and development. Its basically where we are today with technology. There is no stopping the advancment that we see taking place on almost a daily basis. If one company were to stop develpment in a certain area, someone else would just pop up and take that companies or persons place.

Anyways that is really why I liked this film so much. It took the series in a completly new direction by stating that there was no way to stop it while the first two movies focused on what to do to actually stop it.

4.0 out of 5 stars T3 on blu January 30, 2010
Verified Purchase
Well, let's no talk about the movie, everybody has seen this movie so it has no point at all... it'll be helpful talk about the blu ray edition. The fact is this blu ray has just 3 languages (english, spanish and french), the good news are they are in 5.1, so sound is very good in all laguages availables. About video quality, if you are not a hi-def geek it will be fine, i mean, it is not "superb" just fine, there are still some dark scenes where you can see not so good quality.
About extras, well, i am not an extras-boy but for persons who does, it has enough extras to keep your mind busy for a while: Introduction by the governator itself, commentaries from director, hbo documentary, sgt candy scene (is a scene where is supposed they get the model for the terminator 800, thanks god they didn't put in the movie), bloopers (some are funny), gallery, dressing documentary, trailers, video game trailers, etc.
It will be a nice addition to your sci-fi action movies in blu ray, this was the reason i bought it.

Though many critics have commented that this new Terminator is basically a retelling of the second film, I would like to begin by saying that I was pleasantly surprised by this third installment of this very successful franchise. Though the film lacked the direction of James Cameron, who was largely responsible for the birth of the Terminator series, it was nonetheless a worthy successor to his earlier works.
The movie is sharp, with a very definitive, high-tech look and feel about it. Unlike its predecessors, T3 does not have a lot of character development in it, save for a somewhat disarrayed and poorly developed relationship between John Connor (played by Nich Stahl) and Kate Brewster (played by Claire Daines). The duo, thrown together in a moment of peril, at once loathe one another, only later to discover that they have feelings towards each other. According to the Terminator (played by Arnold Schwarzenegger), Brewster will eventually become Connor's wife, (presumably this will be seen in Terminator 4). The development of these characters are probably the one notable weakness in this film.
What makes this movie work are the intense action sequences, as well as the comedic timing of many of Schwarzenegger's lines and situations. In the opening sequence, the Terminator appears just outside a strip club hosting an all-male exotic dancer review. Schwarzenegger's character walks in naked, upon which women begin throwing themselve at him. Upon approaching a male stripper, whose physique is a match to his own, he commands that the stripper gives him his clothes, to which the stripper raises an outstretched palm and stammers "talk to the hand.

4.0 out of 5 stars T3 in a nutshell... July 9, 2003
By "sstm"
Possibly Arnold's best movie since... well, T2, T3 is perhaps weighed down by the extraordinary levels of excellence established by it's predecessors. As a stand-alone action flick, it delivers in spades but, sadly though somewhat predictably, it pales in comparison to its prequels.
The narrative is surprisingly taut and on the whole, bar a few lapses, well-told with even some sharp plot twists thrown in for good measure. A glaring and significant omission from this latest sequel is Brad Fiedel's familiar Terminator theme tune, the inclusion of which I am absolutely certain would increase the success of the movie enormously. Without the theme resonating through the action sequences, the movie certainly feels lacking. In truth, I do not recall a theme at all in T3, so passive and understated was the film's score.
However, Arnold was at back at his best in T3 - re-enacting his role as easily and smoothly as if T2 was released last year. The new Terminatrix was satisfactory, though never truly captivating nor menacing. The support provided by Nick Stahl and Claire Danes was also passable, though it must be highlighted that Stahl makes for a much more believable John Connor than Edward Furlong ever could.
So, in conclusion, Terminator fans will be pleased by the storyline and performances of the leads. They may also enjoy the action sequences which are par for the course for the trilogy. However, the continuation of the saga has been made hollow due to the omission of the old Terminator theme tune which provided the previous movies with just the right tempo, while enabling the audience to cheer for the heroes. Nonetheless, I do recommend the movie, as I had expected it to be much, much worse.

Terminator 3 on Blu-ray, 1080i or 1080p, how do you tell the difference?
Hi. Yes there is a way to tell. They have different UPC codes. The code for the 1080i version is 085391186304. The code for the newer 1080p version is 883929016938. Hope this helps you.
