 The Art of Terminator Salvation Hardcover Book Review

About the Book: The much anticipated fourth instalment of the critically acclaimed Terminator series, Terminator Salvation, starring Christian Bale (Batman Begins) and directed by McG, reaches cinemas on 22 May 2009.

In a brand-new chapter in the Terminator chronicles, Judgment Day has come to pass and Skynet has destroyed much of the world’s population. In this post-apocalyptic world, the resistance, including John Connor, continues its brutal fight for survival.

This beautifully designed companion volume features hundreds of color illustrations, storyboards and intricately designed production art, showcasing the amazing talent that went into the making of this remarkable movie.

Our Take: We're huge, HUGE Terminator fans here at the Legion. When I heard about Terminator: Salvation I was skeptical, mostly due to the campy and cliche nature of the third Terminator film. The Sarah Connor Chronicles television show was a fantastic addition, so I had hope for the new film franchise. It was touted as a trilolgy that takes place in the future, so we can finally see the war between John Connor and the resistance vs. Skynet.


Unfortunately, the rights to Terminator were re-sold recently, and this future trilogy concept was scrapped, so Terminator: Salvation is a stand-alone feature.  I decided to aquire all of the related movie books.  The Art of Terminator Salvation isn't the most detailed art book that I own, but its definately one of the funnest.  Basically, each page has about one piece of art.  A lot of it is full-color production art and backround paintings.  A lot of other movie art books squeeze multiple works on each page, while this one is very spread out.  Thats ok though, because its just a lot of fun to flip through.

If you're a fan of Terminator, I think you'll dig this book, especially since it features a lot of artwork, computer generated pics and models of the various new Terminators!
