At this point, the Terminator franchise can best be described as average, cliche and forced. Hopefully, Dark Fate is the last one, we’ve had enough. Either the powers that be give us a total reboot with a story that isn’t remotely about two Terminators coming from the future to fight over a version of a resistance symbol, or nothing at all.
That said, ‘Terminator: Dark Fate‘ is a pretty enjoyable action flick. Like the other entries in its franchise, this is one, too, is plot driven – solid action sequences and stunts. Although this was a return to the originals in a way, Arnold Schwarzenegger got relegated for most of it and that’s a good thing, means the show can go on without him, probably in the capable hands of Mackenzie Davis.
Seems Linda Hamilton got even fiercer with age; Sarah Connor is one badass you don’t want to f*ck with. A pity I can’t say the same for Gabriel Luna’s Rev-9 Terminator; he had less personality than a regular iron bar.
Director Tim Miller tried his best to carve a movie we all can love and enjoy, but asides the insane action, Terminator: Dark Fate doesn’t offer anything new. After five movies, that’s now a big deal! Hollywood really needs to learn when to let go.
