Another Terminator Plot

Robots at phony war. Relentless as a Schwarzenegger sequel.
You can’t kill those off—the movies, that is—their explosive
mixture of missiles and working-class novelty. Entertaining,

innovative destruction innocuous as a family conspiracy
on loan from a Stiller flick. The formula (for the robots’
holy war, that is): tough-minded men plotting to bomb

New York, to launch the United States’ salvation
on the Hudson River. It’s old hat, but this new take is
Terminator to death. And the paradox: what if we lose?
