Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines (2003) is the third film in the Terminator franchise. It is the first film in the series to be directed by someone other than James Cameron, director Jonathan Mostow.In the aftermath of Terminator 2: Judgment Day, the Connors appear to have prevented SkyNet's takeover: the date Reese cited for Judgment Day has come and gone, and an adult John Connor lives off the grid to make sure no one (including Terminators) can track him down. But out of the blue, another shapeshifting Terminator, a T-X Model with a female appearance, shows up to carry out a specific mission: kill John Connor and as many of his future Resistance lieutenants as possible. A T-850 Model Terminator (functionally similar to the T-800, but with a few minor upgrades), reprogrammed to protect John Connor, also shows up.John, who resents everything about what his late mother Sarah told him about the future and raised him to become, eventually returns to the fight alongside his reluctant ally and future wife-to-be, Kate Brewster, and the T-850 to once again stop Judgement Day and save the human race.
