Format: Paperback
"The Terminator 2029-1984" is at its strongest when lone survivors are facing off against Terminators. The story lags halfway, and fails to make Skynet an interesting villain.

The main character of Ben serves the story well enough and while the love story doesn't break new ground it is serviceable. The book starts off promising by looking at one of the most compelling part of the Terminator universe, the war blasted future where the survivors are hanging on by a thread. Getting a peek at the lives of these hardy warriors fits well with the Terminator world as everyone is on edge.

The book loses focus when it comes to Skynet as a villain. The machines were an effective adversary in the movies as one lucky bullet or mistake by the heroes meant the future was doomed, even as the heroes desperately tried to convince the past of their mission. In this book Skynet doesn't think beyond simply sending waves of machines against the survivors, an attack strategy so simple that the resistance can escape a massive attack by driving out the back door. Skynet also makes confusing decisions, such as one scene where a pack of nude T-800s are ignoring some survivors and punching others.

I also felt that the book mishandled some important themes of the Terminator movies. In the first two films, it was understood by the audience that time travel was a desperate, last ditch, hail mary move that was done only if there were no other options. In this book, the time machine doesn't even have a fence around it and characters freely zap themselves back to 1984. In the context of the book it makes no sense for the resistance to only send one guy, it seems like they could have sent a hundred men.

Kyle Reese, Sergeant Tech-Com, DN38416, was a soldier from a post-apocalyptic future in which machines drove humanity to the brink of extinction after decades of war. In a last-ditch effort to ensure mankind’s survival, he was sent back in time to protect Sarah Connor, the mother-to-be of the leader of the human Resistance, from the Terminator, a relentless cyborg assassin with a mission to extinguish humanity’s final hope. After a series of running battles, Reese was killed in one final attempt to destroy the Terminator.

Or was he?

Before Terminator 2: Judgment Day catapulted the series to a science fiction, action-loaded blockbuster, the original Terminator film was a more low-key combination of sci-fi, film noir, and tragic romance. Terminator 2029—1984 follows in that tradition, focusing more on the character of Kyle Reese (so memorably played by Michael Biehn on the big screen) in the future and revisiting key events from the first movie in 1984 Los Angeles, taking another direction by postulating that Reese survived his final battle with the Terminator and spent decades imprisoned and interrogated, first by shady government black ops types, later by Skynet and its army of cyborgs, all of whom want to exploit his knowledge of the future for their own purposes. In some respects, it attempts to do what Terminator: Genisys attempted, years before Terminator: Genisys was conceived. A new character, Ben Oliver, is introduced with his own bittersweet love story, and his involvement allows a fresh prospective of The Terminator to be viewed, for better or worse.

The ideas visited are fun, even provocative, but ultimately futile once the end of the story is reached.

This one turned out better than I thought it would be. This trade book collects the 6 issues that comprised the 'Terminator: 2029' and '1984' series and presents a very well accomplished storyline that will appeal to fans of the Terminator series. Andy Macdonald's artwork is clean and serviceable and lends a nice touch in capturing the detail of the environs.

Prego Sarah is hand to hand expert, why? So she can karate chop a two ton machine. Time travel is apparently open to anyone now! If so why can't a whole resistance team show up in 1984. Story line is a bizarre mush of stupid emotions missing one vital ingredient "suspense". Needed more terminator, sky net, and less of chick flick stuff.

I was whipped into a Terminator frothing frenzy that would not stop until I had trained in the desert and sought the developers of Cyberdyne Systems. Nice artwork in a quick read.

Amazing story. The attention to detail accurately bridges Terminator 1 (1984) and Judgment Day (1991) by telling a story that intelligently fills in a portion of the gap between the Cameron masterpieces.
