Maybe I've missed something, but everything I see says "Not Yet Rated". And all I've heard is that it might be rated PG-13. Even if that were the case, I don't see why that has to be such a deal-breaker. If the trailer is any indication, it looks like a fairly hard-nosed PG-13, and ratings are pretty mallable over time. Jaws was PG, and it had no shortage of brutal, bloody shark attacks, including a little kid getting eaten alive. The Andromeda Strain had dead babies, female nudity, and a guy getting a hole burned into his face, and that was rated G. At any rate, if Watchmen does well, then I'm wagering that'll tip the scales pretty hard for Terminator to go R.

I've also not seen anything that says James Cameron hated the script. Only that he's given neither his support nor his disapproval. One movie he did give his blessing to was Terminator 3. Oops.

As for McG, he's directed the Charlies Angels films, which were dumb and campy, just like the dumb, campy TV show they're remade from. Not sure what anyone was really expecting there.. BTW, those were Drew Barrymore's pet projects. He was just the director. His only other movie is We Are Marshall. Doesn't seem like enough data to make much of an opinion about his input.

The only real red flag I've heard about this movie is that it's gone through a number of rewrites. Other than that, I don't see a reason to dismiss it outright.
