While visually it had a lot going for it, the general consensus is that ‘Terminator: Salvation’ was a horrible contribution to the franchis. Well, now Arnold Schwarzenegger (‘Maggie’,’Conan‘) has finally weighed in with his opinion on the film. As the most iconic character in all of the ‘Terminator’ movies, we know that he is going to be back and I’m sure many have been curious as to what he thought about the film. His thoughts came out during a recent interview on ABC News about the upcoming ‘Terminator: Genisys‘ when he was asked what he thought about ‘Salvation.’

It seems he agree with the rest of us about the film saying:

“Thank god. It sucked.”

Of course, the reason he has to be happy that the film was a horrible installment is that if it did have a solid plot to back up the action and visual effects, we probably wouldn’t be seeing previews for ‘Terminator: Genisys.’ If the film hadn’t resonated so poorly with audiences it probably would have spawned multiple sequels based off of it’s timeline. This would mean if we didn’t just have a new crop of Terminators than the most we would have of Arnold returning would most likely be the CGI’d younger T-800 and who wants that? I’m sure most of us can agree that without Schwarzenegger having an active role that the movie just doesn’t feel right.

You can check out the full interview below:

Honestly, as much as I’m worried about the film I really do want it to be good. The fact that it is using the built in plot point of time travel mixed with a ‘Star Trek’ styled time line reset will either prove to be a huge hit or make us wish ‘Salvation’ had truly lived up to it’s name when it comes to the franchise.
