On Friday, Warner Bros. released "Terminator Salvation," the latest in the long-running series, and the first to take place post judgment day. In this film, hero John Conner, played by actor Christian Bale, must battle a series of terminators including mototerminators, intelligent motorcycle-like robots.
One of the "stars" of the new Terminator films is this mototerminator, an intelligent motorcycle. One of the main action sequences in the film required a great deal of visual effects work in order to demonstrate the nimbleness of the robot.
