"Like a bad version of Transformers, and that is just about as bad as you can get" - Mark Kermode, BBC Radio 5 Live
Bale - who is absolutely rubbish in the film - even said ahead of time, "nobody thinks Terminator 3 was the best of them, so why do we need another one?"
It was during the review of this "life-threateningly dull" film that the famous "McGEEEE!" impression was born, irritating Simon Mayo immediately.
Mark brought in a clipping from the Guardian ("it's a supplement from the Guardian. That will surprise nobody" - Simon) in which McGee said "I was headbutted by Bill Murray". Mark considered this the perfect review of the movie - something made by a man who would manage to annoy as laconic a personality as Bill Murray to the point of physical violence.
Terminator Saladnation (the alternative title was suggested by a listener) is dedicated to the memory of special effects artist Stan Winston. Mark felt that if anyone wanted to honour Winston properly, they should watch his directorial debut Pumpkinhead instead.
A listener named David noted that Terminator Saladnation had a tie-in pizza at a popular franchise. Having tried both the film and the pizza, he concluded they were much like each other, both being stodgy, a bit hammy and not worth the cash.
