Terminator: Salvation

Terminator: Salvation follows humanity’s last bid to survive the constant onslaught from the machines. Man created robots deem humanity unsafe from itself and set out to destroy every last living being.

John Connor preaches to fellow members of the ‘resistance.’ His motivational broadcasts based upon tapes left to him by his deceased mother. The film tightly uses the ‘pre-‘ and ‘post-‘ contexts to portray the story.

Near the films end where John Connor is facing ‘termination,’ he pleads another robot figure to help him. Is the movie trying to present the theme that man’s reliability on technology is not actually a weakness?
