Rotten Tomatoes Rating: 5
New York Daily News -
A fast-moving, rock 'em-sock 'em movie that continues the man-vs.-machines series begun 25 years ago.
With its idea of an insurgency striking against an implacable evil empire, there's more than a little "Star Wars" in Terminator: Savlation, although not even at its "Empire Strikes Back" bleakest was Lucas' series this dark.
It all contributes to making the story breathless and nerve-jangling.
Entertainment Weekly -
It's basically a zombie movie with machines instead of the walking dead.

Meanwhile the resistance discovers a signal that might turn-off the machines and John offers to test it. When Kyle is captured by a machine and brought to the Skynet headquarters, Marcus decides to help the youngster and heads to Skynet; on the way, he saves Blair Williams who suggests to him that he should meet John Connor first...
