Sort of makes Sabretooth look like another Jurassic Park, don't it?After reading all your comments and reviews, I have to say this; Peoplemade the same type of comments about Plan 9 From Outer Space when itfirst came out.When did The Asylum ever say their film was related to the Terminatorfranchise? The reason why this film is bad is because it was throwntogether really fast. A decent director could have gotten betterperformances from these actors. For most of these actors it was onlytheir second or third film. There were so many continuity errors itwasn't funny, and the editing isn't going to win any Oscars either.The worst scenes for me are when they were in the back of the van andyou could tell they were directed to bounce themselves around tosimulate going down a bumpy road. Also, towards the end when they werein the spaceship their faces were going from blood-spattered to clean,a definite sign of someone wanting to throw together a film and notcaring about consistency.I think I'm going to pull my copy of Pinata: Survival Island out of thecloset and watch it over and over all day.
I started watching this, knowing that this was made by Asylym, and tobe honest, it was not all that bad. Yes, the movie has CGI, but its notoverloaded with it, and honestly this is one of the better Asylym filmsi've seen.Acting is okay, Paul Logan looks really cool and believable as the TR,he has the look, he's ripped, and does a fairly good job. A Martinez,whom i remember only from Santa Barbara has aged well, and is actuallya good actor, well he was acting okay, before the end of the film.Jeremy London looks pale, and unconvincing.Special effects are really good, music is okay too. Of course this isnowhere near the Arnold Schwarzenegger terminator trilogy, or the newC. Bale vehicle, but still one of the better sci-fi movies of Asylym.Waaaay better than Universal Soldiers for example. Give it a look.
The script for this film is terrible. I had to go back a couple oftimes to re-watch certain scenes in order to follow the story. Oneexample being the fact the TR-4 "were self-aware", yet the TR-5 model(as portrayed by the Sheriff) were not. In the logic of everyTerminator supposedly bettering the previous model that aspect did notmake sense. I suppose some of the effects were OK, especially thoseincluding multiple instances of the TR-4's. Interesting to note thatwhen it is declared that all major cities in U.S.A. have beencompletely destroyed they are stated in apparent order of economicimportance, with Portland getting the wooden spoon. I find it hard tobelieve that Miami could be ever destroyed either. Some of the actingis a bit like a 1980's teen-horror with a gang of kids and an adult allrunning around like headless chickens trying to think of a way to win,and what is with the Sheriff when he witness a nuke hit L.A. OK so heis revealed as a machine but at the time its as if he has justremembered he left the oven on. I suppose the actor who plays thecharacter Chloe did an OK job. The guy portraying the TR-4 was abysmaland in scenes aboard the space station when they have lost all poweryou can even see him moving in the close ups. Poor, very poor.Furthermore as has already been stated by other reviewers, the guy istotally ripping off Arnie's style in his manner and even his initialmove, where he rips the commanders heart out. I suppose that one couldbe construed as a typical Terminator programmed action...? It couldhave been better if the sheriff had not been so bad, his charactertotally lets the film down as does the fact that the military arevirtually nowhere to be seen apart from at the end when a small bandled by a guy resembling Busta Rhymes suddenly come into it. I doubt iwill ever watch this movie again.
This is not worth one cent to spend, because it's not a movie. It makesno sense in any matter, and everything a director can make wrong, ascriptwriter can make wrong, and an actor/actress can make wrong, ismade wrong. Every Teletubbie serial has more class and intelligence. Itwould make sense for a full drunken audience, but even filled with fourbottles of wine I for myself would rather prefer to view a George Bushhonor feature.After the first CGI disappeared and the first scene with people on aset begun, I realized that this is going really bad. It's strange thatyou can imagine how bad a movie will be already after a few seconds.I've seen some bad movie's from the 50's and 60's, they are greatmasterworks compared to The Terminators. Maybe in 200 years this movieis cult, but only in a future with the people from "Idiocracy".
Theasylum has done it again with a great cast: Jeremy London,A Martinezand Paul Logan. Terminators is solid sci-fi action and pulls no punchesin any respect. The characters are natural,and never let us down as faras a moving plot goes. Paul Logan(Ballistica) as our AHNULD robot isfitting and carries the menace thru-out. Jeremy London(7th Heaven)comes into picture late,But really saves the day with a spiffy rifleand tech knowledge that brings more science into The fiction plot. AMartinez(One Life To Live),Where have you been ? Does this journeymanhero turn with a secret.Lots of violence by Logan,And some greateffects in outer space.
I tried. Honestly I did. I did sit down - try to fight this thing tothe end so I could stand in front of my computer screen with a pointedfinger shouting "HYPOCRITES! YOU ALL ARE ROBOTS!" through gritted teethwhen the credits rolled. Alas, I could not. With a plot as slow as aconstantly complaining prepubescent white man carrying a constantlycomplaining injured black girl 200 feet back to the van she somehowfell out of, out of the way of the superhuman hunky death machinefollowing suit at full sprint that actually couldn't catch up, mydesire to verbally bash this movie down to a Windows ME TR-1 wassilhouetted by the overwhelming challenge to repel me from it.Although there were tough times, however, there were the good times.From the over-amplified, unmotivated gasps of air, to the brief tour ofwhere to have sex in an industrialized building, to cigar-sucking oldguy's "We got guns", to unnamed and untalented spaceship worker's "Nota problem. Watch and learn, gentlemen. Watch and learn.", to thefuturistic attack warship being outmaneuvered by a path-abiding, big,slow, bright white van (which happens to hold our aforementionedconstantly complaining protagonists), to Kurt's "War's a-comin' soon",to, uh... well I couldn't stand watching it at this point. I skippedforward to the end and, huzzah, learned I didn't miss out on much. Oh by the way, should a cyborg mutiny ever should break out andcomputers start blocking access to their mainframe, take a pointer fromthis movie and be sure to include a giant 'power to all functionalterminators' on/off switch in a random location on your spaceship forgood measure, although I'm sure many immature janitors will besubsequently fired because of it.In good fairness, I do give credit to Paul Logan. He kept his mouthshut, gave intimidating furrow-my-brow-and-protrude-my-jawlineexpressions, and just looked damn good in that outfit - and that's allhe needed. Besides, would you rather have Arnold chasing people aroundwhile his saggy man-breasts smack his face around? I would too. LauraWalsh also successfully used her cute looks as s crutch and gave adecent performance as well, at least in contrast to the other actors.If you happen to be drunk, a deeply regretful fan of the Terminatorfranchise, or are just looking for a reason to despise the moralconscious of The Asylum (you only need to go ankle-deep, I assure you),this will give you an entertaining Sunday night.
How to make a film by "the Asylum" 1) Rip off the concept of someoneelse's better idea.2) Get a washed up actor to star in your film. Someone willing to workfor Booze Money. (See also, Bruce Boxleitner, A. Martinez) 3) Hire FXguys willing to show their stuff.4) Hire writers with absolutely no decency.this film amused me. You essentially have a society that can buildspaceships, a huge space station and really advanced robots that looklike human beings and are virtually indestructible. yet oddly, mostcivilians live lives of quiet desperation with current technology.Nope, it doesn't make a lick of sense, and don't expect it to.
The acting, script, and graphics were an absolute laugh. If the producers were trying to produce a serious action flick then I'd have to rate it one star. I missed the first 30 minutes of the movie but will watch for it to come on again so I can see it from start to finish. I think the spaceship battle was spliced from a 80's video game for the weapons fire, the pull here to disable the threat plot (TR5 Main Control On-Off) device was awesome (needed a blinking neon sign to make it better), and the robotic walking by the terminators was perfect. Apologies to anyone that takes this movie seriously but it was so bad it was great!
I've never seen any Asylum movies before, but I love the Terminatorseries so when I saw this I figured I'd give it a shot even though itwasn't really related.Classic 70s-style effects + cheap CGI = not a bad movie. The effectssometimes added to the comedic effect of the movie, but it was good.The movie kept a good pace with a little bit of character backgroundand development, just enough to tie the plot together. The Terminator(aka TR4) character was no Arnold, but did a pretty good job all thingsconsidered.All in all not bad @ all.(And don't worry, I don't work for them)
The special effects are good to great. The acting and the characters are also good to great. However, the movie runs out of steam as the end approaches, and many plot threads are left unresolved and unexplained. The movie ends with a dull, boring whimper. No explanations, no real climax. It is almost a three-star movie. I would watch it again knowing its limitations. Paul Logan is perfect as the Terminators; you don't think a movie called "The Terminators" would have just one Terminator, do ya? A. Martinez is also perfect as the Sheriff; he is strong and calm and protective of the others. The various female characters are more heroic than any of the young males, though the movie has far too many major-minor characters.The "Filmmakers' Commentary" track is people having fun talking about the movie. It is almost worth another star.
Since I can't really add anything new or different to what others havewritten (basically, any review with score of 2 stars or less I'm inagreement with), I decided to add to the list of films Asylum shouldconsider making:Battlestar Galaxia; Star Track, The Motion Movie; Star War IV, A NewHopefulness; Star War V, The Empire Stages a Counter-offensive; StarWar VI, The Jedi Comes Back; Babylon 6; Lightning Bug; The TwilightAreaMaybe they should get into historical dramas:Approximately 300; The Passion of the Jesus; Troys; Inglorious SoldiersWho Never Knew Their Fathers; Spartacusus; Saving Corporal Ryan
I think this should be marked as a nightmare for all terminator fans.This movies consists of really really crappy story, very lame andnonsensical lines, extreamely cheap equipments, very our-of-dateeffects(explosion like firecracker), very poor directing and acting,predictable scenes etc. It should really be dated 1909 instead of 2009.Literally, I opened, inserted, played, ejected and dumped the DVD in 15minutes. I was really really shocked and disgusted by the fact that inyear 2009, people still produce such a worthless crappy movie and giveit such a nice name. Shame on the production team.

This review is from: The Terminators (DVD) This is a rather peculiar item. It's pretty hard to resist the title," The Terminators " combined with this box art. But if your expecting an army of humanoid robots like the ones on the cover you will certainly be disappointed. There isn't much of a lot/story to this. Just a lot of disjointed stuff happens. Taking place in a future time, soon enough to still have cell phones, yet far enough that lifelike androids serve man and seemingly have replaced humans in at least one military function. For some reason or another (its hard to figure) these cybernetic musclemen have turned on us and dropped a big bomb on a major U.S. city. Now we follow a group of simple small town folk as they try to survive the onslaught while trying to get to a space station to turn the androids/cyborgs off. Why this is their job and no one else is trying to get there is a mystery. The otherconflict comes when it is learned that any of the humans may actually be robots themselves and they must deduct who is friend and who is foe. The major problem with all of this is the tiny shot on video budget and look of the movie, and the most disjointed editing I have ever seen. I really had a hard time telling where on character is in relation to another. Very confusing. A lot of characters just dont behave logically or even how a human being would react at all. Several characters display bizarre actions and decision making. At times it is actually hard to tell what people are saying. That certainly doesn't help. And I am not revealing any "spoilers" when I say that the movie has no end, resolution or climax. The movie simply stops, as though the film broke or, more than likely was never finished. And that is the overall feeling you get from this film. Unfinished. You feel from time to time that something is missing and often there is no motivation for characters to behave as they do. Likewise, conflicts are introduced and never resolved.To be fair. The special effects, all digital, are quite good. Not incredible but certainly much better than you would expect from a cheapie such as this. There is a boss robot that does look like the ones on the cover art. But it is only one. The rest are all just musclemen in tanktops. Some, but not all, are played by the same actor, suggesting an assembly like production. The commentary is also very strange and it is almost impossible to make out what they are saying.
Okay, I understand that the production company of this one isn't topnotch, but, come on. The first time a regular gun doesn't even scratchone of the robots, that's when every single person with any kind ofsense realizes that it's pointless to attempt a stand off with therobots. Matter of fact, you might as well just dump the gun. I thinkpeople like thriller type movies to posses some common sense. That justbugged me throughout the movie. Besides that, the graphics are belowaverage, but good enough not to distract from paying attention. Theacting ranges from good to bad. Unfortunately, the majority is prettybad. The audio is horrendous. Echoes when there shouldn't be any,distortion during some suspenseful scenes, and airy. For the visual,there are many many scenes when this movie looks bootlegged. Many shotswhen the camera is too close to the actors face. The camera is shaky alot. Some backgrounds did not move synchronized with the actors,obviously because it's a green screen. The storyline isn't bad, and themovie is entertaining, though just barely. Overall, slightly belowaverage because the production and acting wasn't convincing. It wasn'ta bad movie though, just not up to par.
You know, sometimes there is "funny" bad, and sometimes there is"awful" bad, and then there is this. To take a classic like T2 or T3and do this to it, is akin to painting a smiley face on the Mona Lisa.If you are going on a first date, and you take someone to see this,chances are your number will be deodorized before it is burned.This "alleged" movie is so bad, I feel like I have bee violated fromwatching 20 minutes of it. Seriously, take everyone who was involved inthis hoax, and drive then to the nearest euthanasia booth, and pay thefee, but do not stand too close in case you get infected with retardedspores.This fiasco makes Spaceballs look like 2001 A Space Odyssey. I haveseen porno movies that have more sincerity,depth and intrigue!I have to go shower again to try to get rid of the stench....
Let me just start off by saying, I am totally cool with C-grade crappysci-fi and/or horror movies. They are fun. This movie is not that. Itis not even D-grade. It is just flat out garbage. It is worse thangarbage. Putting this movie in a landfill is insulting... to thelandfill.The acting was horrendous. The storyline was pretty much non-existent.What existed for storyline was worthless and could have been created ona napkin during the first 5 seconds of someone's lunch break. Thespecial effects looked like they cost around 50 bucks total.I'll bet they made a fortune on this movie simply because their totalbudget was surely no more than $10,000 bucks. If enough people weretricked into buying it (with it's strikingly similar title to anothermovie) or if enough people just bought it by accident because it fellinto their cart at Walmart, they would profit.This movie is simply unwatchable. The movie company "The Asylum" wouldreally do the world a favor if they just disbanded entirely and triedto erase their existence from all historical records.
An army of cyborgs all played by Paul Logan invade a small town andbegin murdering the inhabitants without rhyme nor reason. That's prettymuch all the plot that you need because it's all the plot that you'regoing to get in yet another ripoff from those clowns at The Asylum.Color me surprised when this movie turned out to be.... Marginallywatchable in a horrid movie kind of way. I know right? Don't get mewrong it's still a festering turd, but compared to other rancidstinkers that this company has put out, this is damn near amasterpiece. Paul Logan makes this one bearable in its own inanities.My Grade: D+Where I saw it: Netflix Instant
This is awful. If there was a less than 1 rating I'd have given itthat. No I didn't watch the whole thing and frankly I want the hourback I did invest in it. Having watched The Terminator movies,including the new one, as well as The Sarah Connor Chronicles I wasexcited to watch this. I thought for sure being from SyFy that we'dhave a great program as so many of their shows are but honestly if theyreally wanted to throw money away like this they could have just walkedout to the street and handed it over to someone. It at least might havebeen for something worthwhile then. This show is a load of CRAP! Theacting was horrible and the plot lame. I do not recommend this show inany way.
Well, it's another knockoff from the Asylum, the guys who brought usTransmorphers, Alien vs Hunter, and Snakes on a Train, as well as abunch of monster movies that aren't stolen from anything. So is this agood movie? Surprisingly, I say yes. The script is as good as anymindless action flick, the cinematography isn't bad (except during oneof the fight scenes), the TR robots seem at least a little menacing(come on, pulling someone's jaw off is totally bad-ass) and the specialeffects are decent. The main hints their budget was short were onlythat most of the TRs look human and they avoid lengthy CGI scenes. WhenCG does appear, it's pretty good (at least as it appears on my laptopscreen). A big step up from Transmorphers, which looked horrible. Also,I thought it was cool that some shots featured multiple human TRs atonce, proving they had the budget to "clone" and actor. In terms ofstory, it's pretty average but it can genuinely surprise you. Manycharacters die without me seeing it coming, emphasizing how there arenow evil robots EVERYWHERE. Also I expected Mysterious Guy to turn outto be a TR but he wasn't! In fact (spoiler) the Sheriff is! Anothergood thing is the makeup and set design. I never went "this looks fake"except in one scene at the very start, and the continuity of howcharacters look is good (for example if you have blood on your face,it's there for the rest of the movie). Also, I find everyone gettingbloodier over the movie actually adds to the tension. The acting is allright for it's budget (with exceptions).So anyway, the story: (such as it is)A few years into the future, robots called TRs do most of our work. ForNo Reason Ever Given, they rebel. Some characters blame terrorists, butwe never find out. So anyway, a small town sheriff, a woman, the womanher husband cheated with, some angry guy, a few expendable characters,and Mysterious Guy have to escape their town and help shut down the TRsfrom a space station (because Mysterious Guy knows how). So in the end, God help me, I liked this. It avoids the Asylum pitfallsof boring dialog and horrible CGI, and they managed to pull off a funbut forgettable sci-fi action movie.
This has got to be the worst movie of all time. Acting sucked, special effects sucked, dialog sucked. I mean, this movie sucked big time. Don't waste your money or your time. The person that rated the movie with 5 stars needs to be in a funny-farm. Something wrong with you dude...Don't buy this movie. Don't even watch it on late night TBS. It really does suck. I'm just trying to figure out how I can get my 2 hours back that I wasted in my life watching this trashed out movie.
