The fan opinion of Terminator Salvation has never really been high, and everyone from the producer to the director has since admitted that it, well, kind of sucked. Now even Ahnold himself has chimed in.
Original series star Arnold Schwarzenegger was talking to Collider, and the topic of the fourth and arguably worst Terminator film came up—and it seems Arnie was none too happy with the effort.
"The last one was awful," he said. "It tried hard, not that they didn't try, the acting and everything. It missed the boat."
When Schwarzenegger is making cracks about the acting, that's when you know you're in trouble.
Salvation was the first Terminator film not to feature Schwarzenegger, with the original killing machine making just a short, digitally altered cameo toward the end.
As for the future of the franchise, Arnie said he would be interested in returning if a fifth film happened—but it would have to be a big improvement over the last one.
"[I'm open to] all those things, if it's True Lies, Terminator," he said, before adding: "A well-made Terminator."
We're right there with you, big guy. We've all been waiting for one of those for a long time now.
