    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    May lack the mythic pow of the 1984 original and the visionary thrill of T2, but it's a potent popcorn movie that digs in its hooks and doesn't let go until an ending that ODs on apocalyptic hoo-ha. show more

    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    Has its moments, and Schwarzenegger is as buff and tough as ever. But there's a flat feeling about this effort that's unmistakable and inescapable. show more

    Mike Clark USA Today

    Begins promisingly and entertains for a stretch because you think it's leading to something more than one of the movie year's flattest conclusions. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    The brute force of Terminator 3 is relieved, I'm happy to say, by Claire Danes's winning performance as John Connor's reluctant accomplice (whom the production notes describe, not inaccurately, as an "unsuspecting veterinarian"); by many of the special effects, which don't seem obsolete at all, and, yes, by the sinister trix of the Terminatrix. show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    Terminator 3 moves at not-quite-breakneck speed, and the shape-shifting, metal-melting special effects aren't exactly spectacular. show more

    Jack Mathews New York Daily News

    The effects in "T3" are spectacular, and the action sequences -- particularly the fights between the good and bad terminators -- are exhilarating. show more

    Kirk Honeycutt The Hollywood Reporter

    Lacks the wonder, surprises and supercool attitude Cameron achieved. "T3" is no weak sister, though. With Arnold Schwarzenegger back as the iconic title character and an often witty, fast-paced script by John Brancato, Michael Ferris and Tedi Sarafian, audiences worldwide will embrace the new film. show more

    Against all odds this "Terminator" deserves to be welcomed back. show more

    Rene Rodriguez Miami Herald

    This is easily the funniest of the Terminator movies (although not, it should be stressed, the lightest). It is also the shortest and most compact. show more

    Wesley Morris Boston Globe

    This third installment is the loudest, dopiest, and least inventive of the three. But what the movie...lacks in intelligence it makes up for in sheer doom. show more
