How was arnold in terminator series turned into machinic endoskeleton?
I'm more concerned about a the new T's having a good script, good acting and great action sequences that turn this franchise in all that should always be from the first place - not a rehash of the same story over and over again (terminator comes from the future to kill John Connor).
Does anybody know if the gossip about polish strongman Mariusz Pudzianowski playing new terminator is true?
Arnold is just butt sore that the story isn't based on one main terminator character; it revolves around John Conner (the way it should be).
Well, technically, the terminator is not a cyborg (just the skin is human) but he would win over robocop anytime! bleh
