    My biggest issue was that I saw 90 percent of what happened in the previews and it felt like a weak attempt to use the terminator name to sell more tickets.

    Of all the Terminators movies, the Dark Fate is the one I've found to have no sense at all. It was just a desperate move to reset everything just to run the franchise into the ground.

    I saw this movie today and I honestly enjoyed it. It's not the best, and not as great as T1 and T2 but it is really decent movie and I think that it could be better but it's not that bad.
    P.S In case of any mistake I'm sorry I don't speak english so good.

    Yeah I just seen it today cuz I didn't trust all the critics saying it was bad and yeah they didn't go far enough. So many plot devices and unexplained dimensions of this movie it's unreal how bad it is. The mid air fight was excellent, that enhanced human played her part well. Sarah and Danni I thought were abismal and even the ending was lame. Waste of my Saturday night. I should have seen frozen 2

    Okay. So I as we all know, stories aboit time travle are touchy as hell. But... Terminator up to salvation did good. Ive not seen genesis, but the idea of John becoming a terminator sounds inyeresting at least. With that being said... Skynet doesnt exist... So it would have made more sense if you know, skynet sent older model terminators after them cause it had to act before its destruction instead of another random AI just doing the exact same thing.... Thats just lazy as fuck, and do,t get me started on the fact that we have a T-800 that succeeded in killing John which means, if I'm following the time like right, skynet wouldnt have been destroyed and the machine take over would have still happened, okay, thats fine...ish. But how the fuck do you even come up with the terminator, for absolutely no reason, feeling bad about carrying out its ONLY objective... Especially since T-800 couldnt feel a damn thing, period. Give me the screen play to this movie and I have no doubt I could adjust it to be much better all around. This is very disappointing, especially when you consider how much these people are getting paid. This is pretty much the same bull shit that happend to Star Wars...
    P.S. Revenge of the with was the last legit Star Wars film. Cause this new trilogy is just garbage, but we aint here for that topic.

    I'm sorry but I have to disagree with literally everything you said in that review. While T2 is my most favorite movie of all time and the Terminator movies are all dear and close to my heart I really loved this movie and in my opinion it's the best one after T1 and T2. The action kept me in the edge of the seat the whole time, there was great chemistry between the main characters, Dany while a new character reminded me of T1 Sarah who was caught up in events she did not understand or even felt a part of. Sure it was no T2 but T2 was way beyond anything for the time it was made in anyway so I doubt any movie can actually do the same thing or beat it. Also the whole thing with Grace only able to function for a short burst of time as it was believed that you needed to take out a Terminator right away, well duh it makes sense the Terminators in her time are like twice worse than T800, did we both watch the same movie? It's because it's a different AI that stuff has changed a lot too, different more harder to kill Terminators now roam the futuristic landscape and the survivors had to adapt to this environment in a different way too or it won't make much sense at all in that context. The only thing I personally found lacking is I would have preferred Grace to have given the Rev 9 a bit more context and story, then again it was the first movie in a three part series so it may have been expended on in the other three movies which would likely not happen because people now prefer to go see the Joker for the millionth time then to go see a very awesome in my opinion Terminator movie. Yes I am salty af because I am a huge fan of these movies and seeing others not give a crap is just painful for me.

    I am sick and tired of the woman strong movement in hollywood destroying male characters so that a female can take over the lead role. What is wrong with a man and woman starring in the movie together? This movie is a worse female version of the first 2 Terminator movie.

    The post-2000 Terminator films reflect the pessimism and fatalism our country has slipped into since Littleton, Columbine, 9/11, and all the mass shootings that have happened over the past 25 or so years.

  • Tyler Strickland

    This movie actually did explain a lot, the reason why more terminators popped up after the destruction of skynet is because skynet sent them to different points in time, thus the terminators will still appear, carl knew where they were because he could track the entry points of the portals, the world in the future became cyberized more and drone warfare was more common, so they needed a program to run it which became self aware, the t-800 found value in human life through time and wouldn't kill more because it had one objective which it completed, with the new girl dany as a leader is because sarah and john conner fucked with time and changed the future, when you mess with time it tends to mess back, so a new timeline was started just like the story of genesis almost, I'll agree that dany didn't have much development but it gave a good story that explained a lot and answered some questions that most people probably had

    I rewatched the first two terminator films, and I had absolutely NO INTEREST in Terminator: Dark Fate. I’m a fan of good stories and buildup, NOT movies aiming for SJW BS. Don’t say this film is going to piss off “misogynists” but try to lure in fans with saying Arnold Schwarzzeneger and Edward Furlong.

    Nope. Sarah says quite clearly she DOESN'T know the proper dose of meds for Grace. Just one example of careless, glib critique of a "carelessly" written movie. 😆
    No, it wasn't great, but it beats all the others that followed the first two films - except for the underrated _Terminator: Salvation._

    I saw the movie last night. I love it. All the special effects. Yep there's some gaps like how did Arnold get information from events in the future and send it to Sarah Conor who's off the grid. But I do love seeing them both in a Terminator movie again. In Terminator 2, I hated that quick silver Robert Patrick. I see they tried to bring him back again. I sat at the edge of my seat for this movie and wished, I took my pressure meds before watching it. It's that good.

    I actually hated Grace, there's just very little about her to like as a character. She will trust a terminator straight away but she gives someone who kills them and saves her life a hard time? I also disagree with on the "Carl" concept, I always wondered what happens to a terminator once it completes it's mission. At the end of T2 it appears as though the terminator is beginning to understand human emotion, so we know they don't just shut down where they stand.

    oh god, why didnt they just stop with T 2?
    1. i am all for equality, but adding females to a movie and nothing else doesn't automatically make it better. it ruined ghostbusters, it ruined terminator.
    2. stop. just stop. terminator was perfect, it doesnt NEED anything else. you just made 4 unneeded sequels, just stop

    I dont understand why people arent liking this film. I think its a good continuation of the original 2. Also, the plotholes brought up arent valid to me, because carl does explain how he gets the coordinates for incoming terminators disrupting the time flow and its easy to believe that those terminators being sent back in time all came from the time line where carl came from before sarah and john prevented skynet from starting

    I think if they had taken a different route and said that the REV 9 had been by a fragment of Skynet that survived the resistance and become Legion that would’ve been better and would explain why John was killed

  • Yigitalp Kiic
    Yigitalp Kiic 25 days ago

    The question I would like to get answered is that if they stopped the judgment they and there is no longer skynet how is possible we have seen t-800 programmed to kill John.. so if you ask me I would tell they couldn’t stop the judgment day and if John Connor was not dead probably skynet would be created by people in the future caused by John Connor’s mistake .. so that’s why when originally John was killed skynet is no longer exist .. weirdly t-800 stopped judgment day by skynet by killing John .. am I the only person think like that?? damn!! That’s crazy ..

  • funncubesde
    funncubesde 25 days ago

    i mean i can get why there are still terminators being sent back.... it was legion, attempting to kill danny's pearents and her, but sarah was just wrecking them. since grace's supperiors knew about karl, they knew about when sarah would not find the time travelers in time and send grace back to hold the rev9 off long enough for sarah to arrive and wreck him...
    only grace stole sarah'S car and sarah didnt kill the rev9 for some reason, even though she was able and about to.
    dont get me wrong. it's bad, but that is not a plot hole.

    It seems like this movie tales place after the Sarah connor chronicles. But also the movie can change because the timeline changed when skynet was destroyed. I thought it was good.
