On the Blu-ray disc
The director's cut is a mere three minutes longer than the theatrical cut. Many of these additions are just a few seconds of extra violence (e.g., a knife thrust into a body then pulled out), but there are a few more-substantial sequences: A longer conversation in Resistance Command Headquarters; a brief topless scene by Moon Bloodgood when her Blair Williams character and Sam Worthington's Marcus return to her base (reminiscent of Kelly McGillis and Harrison Ford in Witness); an extended conversation between those two characters afterward (Blair: "You can focus on what you've lost or you can fight for what's left"); and a longer radio address by John Connor in which he mentions his mother. Even though it's not all that different, it should be the preferred way to watch the movie.
The big extra feature, Maximum Movie Mode, is only on disc 2's original theatrical cut. In front of two large TV screens, director McG introduces the movie then makes periodic appearances to discuss key concepts. Interspersed along the way are various pop-ups with the Terminator mythology timeline, picture-in-picture with cast and crew interviews and behind-the-scenes footage, and stills galleries. You can also, when prompted, exit out of the movie to watch any of 11 Focus Points, which are two- to three-minute featurettes. Conveniently, you can also access these from the main menu. Two other features are watchable separate from Maximum Movie Mode: "Reforging the Future" (19 minutes), discussing the new film's take on the Terminator legacy, and "The Moto-Terminator" (8:33), focusing on the motorcycle-like robots. --David Horiuchi
Story line was good, as with all the terminator movies lots of action good effects and great sound effect.
Or better yet why did Skynet even send back a terminator machine to 1984 since the threat from the machine is what gets Kyle Reese and Sarah Connor together?
People who don't have Blu-Ray aren't going to buy a player just for a movie like this, so this was a bad idea.
Great to watch if you like the series of movies before this one.Published 1 day ago by Marion Mourey
This film was incredible for being the fourth film in a franchise. Great story and flow, tons of action, and characters you enjoy watching. Read morePublished 9 days ago by Peter Padro
It was OK but not what I expected. Cameron presence was missed! Bale showed up as Batman sans suit and cape.Published 19 days ago by Jay Toigo
Nice way to come full circle in the series, all the holes get plugged up.
Only thing missing was knocking off John Conner, they should... Read more

|Director's Cut on dvd?||
They must be in bed with Sony, trying to force people to abandon the DVD format and go to Blu-Ray.

|Will this movie even be worth getting?||
I for one love the Terminator films and loved the film. I am glad I didn't listen to reviews. It's way better than Rise of the Machines (which was Okay at best I guess) and I think close to Terminator 2. I don't understand the hate for this film and I went in expecting a complete B movie. Sam... Read More

|Amazon Blu-ray Descriptions are Useless||
Another problem, as you may have noticed, is that if you go to check the user reviews for the Blu-ray product, all the reviews from the various DVD versions will show up as well. So sometimes you have to wade through tons of irrelevant reviews to find one that actually discusses the strengths... Read More

Apparently there are 2 versions of this - a 3-disc (Directors cut, Theatrical cut, Digital Copy) and a 2-disc (Directors Cut, Theatrical Cut). Both have the same SKU/UPC. The only way to tell is by the slipcover - if it has the shiny/metallic slipcover, it's the 3-disc. If it doesn't have a... Read More

|Firmware update for this movie||
The firmware update, if any, would need to come from the manufacturer of your Blu-ray player, not from the company who manufactured the disc itself. Make sure you visit the website of the Blu-ray player to ensure you are up-to-date with the latest firmware releases.
