Terminator 5: Will the Chases be This Good?
There's all kinds of buzz about Terminator 5 in the news. Already, there is plenty of speculation about who will be cast as Sarah Connor, and who Arnold Schwarzenegger will battle in his major return to film, after running the State of California for the better part of a decade. Whoever gets cast, director Alan Taylor – who helmed Thor: The Dark World this year – has big shoes to fill if the driving scenes are going to be this good:
The Terminator - Cadillac Eldorado vs. Cop Car:
The coolest thing about the original 1984 The Terminator was that the stunts seem a lot more real than anything you're likely to see in film today. Just a couple of crap cars, duking it out in a garage.
Terminator 2: Judgement Day - Wrecker vs. Dirtbike:
Come on, car chases don't get this good anymore.
Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines - Cop Car vs. Crane:
Nobody uses a crane to chase anybody anymore. That's what's wrong with these kids today.
Terminator Salvation - Wrecker vs. Motorcycle/Helicopter Thing:
McG's Terminator Salvation had its issues, but the chase here was pretty wild. It's like Road Warrior, shown at faster speed.
