And that's the problem to me.
It shares to similarly with T2's story structure.
Add in that Nick Stahl is a bad choice for John. Arnold looks pretty bad with the amount of makeup they piled on him to try and make him look younger.
And what's her name that played the TX was terrible.
Robert in T2 worked so well as the T-1000 because he was able to add character to him. Fool people by acting human. Even with his smaller frame he still came across far more threatening because he was able to blend in with society more.
The TX in T3 had none of that. She played it emotionless. Cold... and by extension, boring.
This is a bonus that Genysis had going for it. John's Terminator had personality, it showed emotions and a more interesting character.
In a lot of ways to me, T3 felt like it took steps backwards from T2. It tried to copy that formula in hopes it would recapture the same spirit, but instead played it too safe and just wasn't able to make an original place for itself.
But, it's me personally.
I'm just tired of the time travel and want to see more of the war in the future. I loved Salvation, despite some of it's smaller issues. And, would much rather see more of that.
Also, Christian Bale played a better John Conner then Jason Clark did in Genysis.
