Terminator: Dark Fate Review

  • Published on Oct 22, 2019
  • Despite Sarah Connor's previous attempts and sacrifices, humanity's fate is once again at stake - and with it the future of the franchise itself - in Terminator: Dark Fate. Tim Miller's film deftly builds upon what worked in the first two James Cameron-helmed entities while bringing in a new host of characters and circumstances to challenge the course of humankind. While there's definitely some frantic leap-frogging involved in terms of accepting why some characters have evolved the way they did, Terminator: Dark Fate ultimately succeeds in serving as both a suitable closing chapter for the original two films and a possible gateway to exciting new chapters ahead.

    Hmm it's kinda funny that this gets an 8 when there's a female terminator, Sarah connor and a girl to replace John Connor
    Then Rambo gets a 4 because it's a straight white guy killing mexican cartel guys

    overly positive. By not watching you won't miss anything. Stop watching after T2, you'll be fine.

    The Video Game :Dawn of Fate, is what's left that can save the movie franchise. Base the story between Coronal Perry, Kyle Reese, Luna, Resistance Og Leader John Connor, fighting the machines and also the lingering threat of the trader Stone & the Android threat..

    It is better to continue Genesis storyline than to redo all over.
    Box office just say it why.

    I appreciate your review of Terminator Dark Fate. This movie did bring closure to the first two and in a way combined the others with the rev9, augmented human and the importance of Sarah Connor staying alive. It is a great movie that shows that some things just can't be changed. They have to happen. I can't believe the hate this film is getting because of the revenue. If half of California wasn't on fire I'm sure they meet and exceed their marks.

    Of course this is the best Terminator film since T2. T3 was garbage, Salvation was garbage, Genesis was TERRIBLE, Dark Fate was somewhat watchable.

      Youre Gonna Need a Bigger Boat With the exception of making Terminator 1 and 2 obsolete. I enjoyed the film.

    John Connor shouldn't have been in this movie. This could have been a movie about a quantum AI named Legion building a military robot called terminator, and they try to stop it. But failed leading to a mass production and war.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if a Hollywood executive was holding a gun to the back of this reviewers head the whole time while also telling them to stick to the script they gave them.

    terminator dark fate not just kill the end of the second one, but it has a lot of hole plots, including the fact that practically steals everything it can from logan

    “Best terminator since t 2” “less it more for Arnold” “movies were missing Sarah” these quotes right here confirmed My lack of motivation to watch this movie

    All these comments make no sense... I just went to see this movie and it is the best since T2. T1, T2 and Dark Fate are the best Terminator movies. Nothing wrong with this review.

    When I first saw trailer I though new movie will be bad (max 5/10). But for my surprise after watching it I will score it minimum 8.5/10 . -1 point because it make meaningless other part of this franchise and there was possiblity of going with John Connor. -0.5 a few minor "bugs". And there a lot of pluses in new movie:
    + New terminatior. He is resourceful. Cold and at the same time his interaction with humans upgraded.
    + New ideas. Cyber inhanced bodyguard. Alternative future.
    + A lot of action which keep your adrenaline at high

    Ok IGN is either on the payroll or they like 1to1 remakes done shitally while going woke. This movie is the last Jedi of Terminator movies. And by that I mean death of a franchise.
