    I honestly don’t understand why people didn’t like Terminator Salvation; I thought it was a well written and acted film. My only real problem with it was that John Connor’s character had little screen time; however, that did not make the film any less great.

    I think that Arnie’s lack of presence gave the film new life as opposed to just using the same characters with a recycled, slightly changed plot.

    In my opinion the films should continue on from Salvation because otherwise, a so-called reboot is just going to confuse a lot of fans.
