Judgment Day has come and gone. Modern civilization has been destroyed. An army of Terminators roams the post-apocalyptic landscape, killing or collecting humans where they hide. But small groups of survivors have organized into a Resistance, hiding in underground bunkers and striking when they can against an enemy force that vastly out numbers them. Only one man saw Judgment Day coming, a man whose destiny has always been intertwined with the fate of human existence: John Connor . But something totally new has shaken Connor's belief that humanity has a chance of winning this war: the appearance of Marcus Wright , a stranger from the past whose last memory is of being on death row before awakening in this strange, new world. If humanity is to survive, Connor must decide whether Marcus can be trusted, and the two must find common ground to make a stand against the onslaught and meet the enemy head on.

First PG-13 Terminator is loud, explosive, and dark.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that although this installment of the Terminator series is the first to earn a PG-13 rating instead of an R, Terminator Salvation is still extremely violent. There's not much actual blood, but there's plenty of broken flesh, bruises, and batterings. The film's tone is also quite intense, with constant attacks, life-or-death struggles, and scenes in which giant robots attack and abduct humans. While much of the violence is directed against robots, some of those robots are remarkably human-looking, which makes the gore and grim action a bit tougher to take than you might think. Characters also touch on heavy topics like morality, ethics, and redemption. There's a little bit of kissing, but hardly anything to worry about in the way of strong language, drinking, or smoking.
