I liked it, one of the better T movies to watch online. Enjoyed Emilia Clark’s appearance. A bit bummed she wont return for any future installments (her choice) despite her enjoyment working with Arnold. Can be a bit heavy with CGI, but don’t see a way around that and its not really a criticism. Really enjoyed how they linked the “Terminator Universe” for the most part. The only gripe I have is about the series; too many John Connors.
Convoluted, pointless, awful and badly cast. Also they keep on getting worse. Why does Kyle Reece in this film look like a trader from wall street instead of a solider? Why should anyone care about the characters in this film when the story is so complicated and stupid. The first two films had a simple but brilliant narrative. As for this disaster of a film, I truly have no idea what I’ve just seen, what the story was, how the script was approved, and why Arnie would put his name to this.

A must see for any adventure enthusiast. Features a who's who of extreme sports pushing the limits of human ability. We were gasping aloud, "ohhh no", everyone was at the edge of their seats. The search unfolds in the voice of these soulful characters we have looked up to and admired for years. It gives you that same blissful feeling when the wind is up, the waves are right, the powder is deep or the trails are blazing. The footage is beautifully shot. The soundtrack featured artists I know and love. It's just plain fun. See it, you won't be disappointed!!!

Nice enough message. I've heard it many times since then but it was probably reasonably fresh at the time - re coming home from the hellishness of war. Unfortunately it is delivered in a way which is just too deliberate for me and it feels like homework. It's long and it has too many scenes that are mundane and should have been edited out IMO. I know that part of the point is juxtaposition between the mundanity of home life and war - but it doesn't change the fact it's a movie and watching it is mundane at times which is not good. 5.3 out of 10

One of those movies that was so influential that a lot of its plot beats now come off as cliche - the broken veteran returning home, the thousand yard stare, etc. There are also some pretty dangerous and backwards attitudes towards women, with characters we're supposed to be rooting for groping, threatening, and outright hitting female characters (in public! With no repercussions!). I also didn't buy Nick's turn at the very end of the film at all.The film is, however, beautifully acted and shot, and the famous russian roulette scenes are as tense as advertised. Still, there are three or four "Horrors of Viet Nam" films I would recommend over this one, so skip it unless you're a completist.

A drama film about friendship more than a war film, The Deer Hunter sticks to its strengths in telling a personal story about a group of friends and how the Vietnam war shifts their friendship in many different ways, boasting a terrific cast and top shelf direction, besides the fact that the film over stays it's welcome and has abrupt transitions, slightly muffling it's emotional punch.
