Ter­mi­na­tor 3: Rise Of The Machines

Western Times - - LIFE TV GUIDE -

Thurs­day, 7mate, 8.30pm, M (2003) Arnold Sch­warzeneg­ger re­turns to his sig­na­ture cy­ber­netic role and is at his brawny best, given a well-cho­sen sup­port­ing cast to play off. Arnie’s cy­borg killing ma­chine is sent from the fu­ture to pro­tect the would-be leader of the hu­man re­sis­tance, John Con­nor (Nick Stahl), from the at­ten­tions of the sexy and lethal Ter­mi­na­trix (Kris­tanna Lo­ken, pic­tured). Along for the bruis­ing ride is Claire Danes, a vet who proves to be rather handy with a Kalash­nikov and who’s a highly ef­fec­tive foil for Arnie. Tak­ing over di­rec­to­rial du­ties from James Cameron, Jonathan Mos­tow (U-571) of­fers a tight, en­ter­tain­ing ac­tion fest that isn’t averse to play­ing the self­par­ody card.
