Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines (2003, dir. Jonathan Mostow)

John Connor, now a troubled young adult, is again pursued (and protected) by machines from the future. A slightly tongue-in-cheek threequel – apart from the pleasantly downbeat ending – which is heavy on chase-based action, though light on violence and plot. It’s entertaining enough, if a step down from its predecessors.

The Hunter’s Prayer (2017, dir. Jonathan Mostow)

A jaded hitman protects a teenager from assassination. Clunkily-scripted but well-directed pan-Europe chase thriller with bags of well-choreographed lo-fi action. A hugely competent job done with very average raw materials.
