Cameron on Salvation 6 Minute Mark

So for those that don’t want to wait, because he doesn’t say much…here’s what he has to say:

I think, you know, it’s an interesting film. I didn’t hate it as much as I thought I was going to, because McG was really, you know, kind of reverential to the Terminator mythos. But you know, obviously the film probably performed a little less than everyone had hoped, and maybe that’s because Arnold wasn’t in it. But I thought that Sam really held his own against Christian Bale; I thought he did a great job. And I thought in a way he was kind of the heart of the movie even though he played a guy who was a machine, because you really felt for him. And you know Sam always projects this kind of interesting mixture of vulnerability and strength that somehow we can relate to, you know he’s kind of an everyman character.

So let’s break it down.

He pretty much liked it. Like he liked T3.

He thought it was pretty reverential to the Terminator Universe.

He thought it should have done better box office…blames it on too little Arnold. (I think Arnie shouldn’t have been in the film).

Sam was awesome, held the movie together, was the heart of the film. (Which is the whole point).

The point of Salvation is that it doesn’t matter whether you’re man or Machine. You do deserve a second chance. And on the same page man and machine can be just as evil and uncaring as each other.

I find it exceedingly humorous that people are calling this review so so.

Far as I can tell he seems quite damned happy about the film. Trust me if you want to see him mad at a film…look up what he said on Aliens 3.

This dude doesn’t mince words. He’s King of the World remember. If he didn’t like Salvation…he would’ve said it. No holds barred.

Instead…he enjoys both sequels…go figure.
