I made this edit a couple years ago, at the same time that I made my Terminator 3 edit. I didn't release it because it was a somewhat minor edit that I just made for myself. But recently, on the forums here, on Reddit and in my direct messages, I have seen a few people looking for good edits of Salvation. So I decided I might as well release mine.


I actually like Terminator Salvation. I don't love it, it certainly has it's issues, but I like it enough. The things I don't like about it are... The opening scene in the prison. It ruins the reveal later. Skynet knowing about Kyle Reese. Why wouldn't they just kill him instead of using him to get to Connor? This edit fixes both of these issues by removing the opening flashback, references to the flashback at Skynet later in the movie, and removing every instance of Skynet knowing Kyle Reese.

Change List:

I used the Director's cut as the base, which is 1:57:40, my edit is 1:53:04. Detailed changes... 1:55 Opening scene in the prison removed 14:57 Mention of Reese removed 30:37 Drone identifying Reese removed 56:29 When the landmine blows up Marcus, there are flashbacks to the opening prison scene, these are removed 1:01:23 Identifying Reese removed 1:23:55 - 1:24:05 Multiple references to the prison scene, Marcus donating his body, Helena Bonham Carter's character, talk of Kyle Reece, all removed.
