Television Review: “Terminator Salvation: The Machinima Series”

terminator-bloodgoodWhen I ran into “Terminator Salvation: The Machinima Series” animated short, I instantly thought back to the “Animatrix” and “Batman: Gotham Knight” animated shorts, which were exceptionally well done and offered some very talented animators the opportunity to play in the worlds of The Matrix and Batman. “Machinima” was offered via On Demand, at a slight discount, so I pulled the trigger on the purchase. While I won’t be getting my money back for that decision, I can certainly use the power of my 5 million hits a month, to make sure you don’t make that same mistake!

“Terminator Salvation: The Machinima Series” is a segmented computer animated series that follows Moon Bloodgood’s character Blair Williams as she looks for a “ghost” that is screwing up communications. What follows is a repetitive mundane story that literally put me to sleep. Frankly, if a hot chick gunfighting with robots can’t hold my attention then you’ve seriously got a problem!

What burns me most about this animated series has nothing to do with the writing. While watching “The Machinima Series” I couldn’t help but wonder why the animation was so exceptionally poor. The CGI looked like a video game. So, I got online and did a little research, and what do you know; it was created using the same graphics engine that the “Terminator: Salvation” video game used!

So, what we have in “Terminator Salvation: The Machinima Series” is an insult of the highest order; a poorly-written visual wreck offered to steal your money. If these episodes were given to the public as a free bonus, or part of a viral campaign, then I’d be the first guy to positively acknowledge the gesture. But this is a flagrant attempt to remove you from your hard earned money and both the creators of “Terminator: Salvation” and the executives of Warner Brothers should be ashamed of themselves.

While I can save you from wasting your money, the only thing that will truly square things with the Beefboy is a date with Moon Bloodgood. I don’t think that’s too much to ask.

    I agree that it should be a freebee promotional video and in no way should there be a charge for viewing it but I do like that they’re trying to keep the franchise alive. The graphics were less than desireable but I could see the writing carrying this show to a better place. Maybe it could appear on scyfy’s “Ani-Monday”. That’d be nice cause I’m not paying for it (thanks for the heads up by the way).
