"Life-threatening dull" - 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 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.
