    generic action, none of the characters had chemistry, and the plot felt insulting to the memory of the first two films. It is, however, still better than the last 3 Terminator movies, but that isnt a high mark to beat.

    If I were to marathon the Terminator franchise, I would skip from T2 to Dark Fate, avoiding all the lame-brain, never-happened-anyway, Linda-less movies in between. Though this newest (and hopefully last, I think we're done) chapter cannot top either of Cameron's films, I wouldn't be sorry to tack it on at the end. Let's talk problems, because it has many. A lot of the dialog, especially before Sarah Connor shows up, is clichéd and hackneyed. It gives us two key (forced) reveals that aren't reveals at all because they are pretty obvious even if you haven't seen any of the other films. And it sometimes hovers between fan service and NOT giving you the fan service you crave, which will be annoying to those who love or hate fan service equally. BUT! I was excited to see that, parallel development aside, the franchise jettisoned much of its mythos, making the victory from T2 a lasting, meaningful one. Linda Hamilton is a traumatized badass in the same way Jamie Lee Curtis was in the new Halloween last year, and she makes everything better. The movie finds its sense of humor once she shows up. The new Terminator has some fun tricks, and generally, the superhero action is well-choreographed and gives us stuff we haven't seen before. I admit to feeling tension, something that hasn't happened since T2. It is at times as relentless as a Terminator is, but I tend to think that's a feature, not a bug. And on the nose or not, I appreciate that it took the political messaging of T2 and took it further, having the bad guy in a border patrol uniform chasing a Mexican woman who is the key to saving the world. Hang subtlety, this really isn't that kind of movie. 9 months 1 week ago

    Good action and effects, nice new characters, and has an emotional impact comparable to the first two. But shares a problem with Genisys spoiler Otherwise, a good effort. 9 months 2 weeks ago
