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.

Even though they brought the same pyschiatrist guy back from movie 1 and 2 with a half witted explanation (I mean he clearly witnesses the mayhem in movie 2 in a hallway) they did an excellent job of explaining what had happened to John and Sarah Connor from the last movie and why the machines are back even though in movie 2 John, Sarah, the computer programmer, and the good terminator destroyed the chips/computers/software that were to be used to build the AI/machines. The ending was great as it was very very unexpected but so in line with the story.
There is more corruption of a great tough guy thriller by American liberals in this movie--the female terminator is one, the gays guys in the opening scenes, the emasculated John Connor character with the horrible choice of an actor, the unrealistic fictional feminist Claire Dane character, etc.
But let's get to the movie first on this DVD. The movie isn't the best and yet, isn't the worst. It has its qualities - humor, action & twist. Other than that, the movie starts off with a B-Graded feel with an ending that gives us fans an ending. But is anyone satisfied? To me, its like killing off the franchise. We can't avoid the future? Its fated that these machines will fight us to the death? And everything in what we believe in means there is no point in fighting to stop a future that is already written even many times? Well, I'm sure James Cameron will be dissapointed with this 2nd sequel. So are the fans. But then again, if you take it as an entertainment value, its good enough to enjoy.
Now comes the extras. 1 deleted scene (Sgt. Candy Scene) and it explains why most T-101s looks like Arnold. Thank you for the deletion. The documentaries... truthfully, I slept through it. The gag reel isn't that funny. But other than that, its just okay for me.
To add in with your collection? Why not, at least its much better that "Terminator 2: Jughment Day (Extreme DVD)" edition. So just look at what T-3 has to offer for you first before you decide whether to buy or not. As for me, I bought it because I like the Terminator series.
This show WAS needed to tie-up loose ends, but it could've been better. I did purchase the DVD version to complete my T-collection and the price was right. I thoroughly enjoyed the free watch on Amazon instant video that came with my purchase,
But, I gave this flick a 3-star because it wasn't quite as good as 1 & 2 which straight-up 5-stars and 3 deserved a 3-star and Salvation would be 4 1/2 stars due to it's epic story premise where the whole resistance/Terminator fight comes full-circle where man & machine must put everything on the line... that is the story.
But, don't take my word for it---check them all out for yourself.
Only two things I noticed that were new in this 2013 release of Terminator 3 and and the 2008 release. The disc itself has a new plain black label, and a new upc bar-code and coupon that expires in August 2013 were added to the outer wrapper. The description of this release on the Amazon page is inaccurate. The movie is listed as 118 minutes, but the cover of the blu-ray says it's 109 minutes long, as it actually is. It is the same exact film. I ONLY bought this because the Amazon description said it had a longer running time, and it had no image for me to refer to in order to double check. I would advise people to not be fooled by the description and buy either version you can get.
