Heute im TV Dieser brachiale Schwarzenegger-Kracher ist viel besser als sein Ruf – und war einst sogar der teuerste Film aller Zeiten

Columbia TriStar

Actually, » Terminator 3 — Rise of the Machines » never had a chance. With the two predecessors, blockbuster specialist James Cameron finally delivered well-loved milestones in science fiction cinema that are still unsurpassed for many genre fans today. How could a movie ever compete with that? And then under the direction of someone else! Jonathan Mostow had already made a name for himself with » Breakdown » and » U-571 «, but putting him on the same level as James Cameron would still be madness — today as it was then. And that was just the beginning.

Rise Of The Machines was a gamble of massive proportions that few Hollywood studios would dare to take today (ironically, 2019’s Terminator: Dark Fate is an exception). With production costs of over 187 million dollars , the third «Terminator» film in 2003 was the most expensive film of all time — and that as an R-rated film! In the end, it flushed a respectable 433.4 million dollars into the box office, but still only ended up in the comparatively disappointing 7th place of the most successful films of its year.

Especially in comparison to » Terminator » and » Terminator 2 «, part 3 was often scolded as unworthy and not just hushed up, but almost smiled at from all sides. And yet: We can only recommend that you tune in today, May 12th, when “Terminator 3” starts at 10:25 p.m. on VOX. Almost 20 years later, «Rebellion of the Machines» is not only at least as good as it was then, but maybe even better. We’ll tell you why.

One of the reasons for the skyrocketing production costs was the hand-made special effects. While Mostow relied on a consistently homogeneous mix of CGI and practical special effects , what is particularly striking in direct comparison to today’s blockbusters is the impact the third «Terminator» chapter unfolds in its action scenes.
