Terminator Salvation

terminator

Christian Bale is John Connor in the new Terminator movie (# 4 with the possibility of more to come) that challenges our sense of time in true Termiantor tradition.  Australian Sam Worthington is Marcus Wright. Although he is not a complete new-comer, I didn’t know him. I thought he was American until his Australian accent whispered out when he was under pressure (of a really big and bad machine, I think). John Connor ends up leading the resistance against the self-aware Skynet defence system but Marcus’ search for personal redemption wins the day. You will recognize Anton Yelchin as Kyle Reese (John Connor’s  father as a teenager; see what I mean about time issues?); we just saw him as Chekov in Star Trek.

It is pretty much non-stop violence and explosions from beginning to end. Even thought it does have a few points that it teaches us, the film offers much to talk about from a theological perspective of human nature.
