Terminator Fans either love his interpretation/performance as John Connor in Terminator Salvation or hate it; but without a doubt Christian Bale is one of the greatest actors of our generation and someone we think was extremely let down by a poorly formed script, which was greatly damaged by a Hollywood writers strike.
Had Terminator Salvation been set in a grisly dark and brutal dark blue future war setting it would have been more true to the original movie and a trilogy would have gone ahead. Potential sequel ideas included Bale’s Connor reuniting with Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton) and possibly either fighting or working alongside a T-800 depending on if William Wisher (writer of T2) programmed Schwarzenegger to be good or bad in the Terminator Salvation sequels.
Happy Birthday Christian Bale!
