I'd like more too. McG had a trilogy in mind, but hasn't the box office takings been poor so far??

I thought the story was very good. Arnie was in it, dude.
tbh, it was always kind of silly how many "Arnie Terminators" Skynet had?

In my opinion The story was far more cohesive and with far fewer plot holes than the new Trek, I saw the movie twice and the only thing I could nitpick about it was how the resistance seemed to be SO WELL SUPPLIED...planes...trucks....l cars...loads of amo.. and guns...all kinds of computer interfaces apparently not infiltrated in some fashion by skynet, and a medical facility and personnel capable of doing a heart transplant. That's not a resistence...that's a frackin full fledged military. But outside of that little point it was solid.

I'm tired of agendas, friend. that's all.

as to the hardware the resistence had, would have been a damn poor war movie without it, not really a plothole.

I don't have an agenda, just an opinion, just like you...which I attempt to express in a cohesive and respectful maner, , don't want to get under anyone's skin. As for The resistence I just think the resitance should have been more covert with there activities to reflect that the hardware they had was rare and of high value...

I have no opinions. remember what Dirty Harry says about those

but you could just talk about one movie without needing to have a go at another.

as to the hardware again, we don't know how many planes, etc. they actually had, but you surely agree that they wouldn't last long without it.

also, with the deaths of Ironside and company, Connor is now leader of the resistence as opposed to being a "prophet" and is known worldwide.
while being a messiah to the cell that he was a member of he was not in charge, until he returned from the submarine
am I correct?

so what position did he hold in the resistence at the beginning of the movie.

he was held in contempt by the Olsen character. was he a barely tolerated prophet because that the leaders didn't dare risk removing for fear of the soldiers turning against them
