Not to his face, mind you. I don’t know the guy and have never met him. I’m just not a big fan of his past work and I have had no real reason to believe that Terminator: Salvation was going to be any different. I have talked about the film here before and how I don’t think it is a particularly good idea to continue to mine this particular franchise. Cameron’s two films work perfectly together, and to further push things by showing that the apocyliptic Judgement Day was not averted cheapens them in retrospect.
Wired scored an interview with Terminator: Salvation director McG and he says some interesting things that don’t quite win me over on the premise of continuing the franchise, but at least he has given some thought to not just delivering a brainless action film. Illustrating the article is some great new production art wirth checking out on its own.
