The Terminators is a science fiction film by The Asylum. Though the film's title is deliberately similar to the 1984 film The Terminator, the events in the film's storyline are more similar to 1973's Westworld and the 2004 revision of Battlestar Galactica. As a mockbuster, it was released one month prior to the premiere of the fourth film in the Terminator franchise, Terminator Salvation.
The film takes place at an undetermined point in the future, when humanity has developed advanced robotic technology with enhanced artificial intelligence. This includes the use of cybernetic organisms (or cyborgs) for general labor. For unknown reasons (assuming it was reprogrammed by unknown supercomputer due to an unknown virus, in that case which is never seen in the film), the machines instigate a cybernetic revolt against humanity, bombing cities and sending thousands of armed, identical TR-4 cyborgs to eradicate all human life.
A band of survivors, led by small-town Sheriff Reed (A Martinez), locates a functioning shuttle and flies to an orbiting space station in an effort to find a way to shut down the TRs remotely.
The film received horrible reviews. IMDb users rated it on average at a 2.1/10, while Rotten Tomatoes users on average rated it 1.9/5. According to Rotten Tomatoes, only twenty-three percent of all viewers liked it.
