Terminator: Dark Fate Reviews

Linda Hamilton is on top form in the best Terminator film since Judgement Day...

If you can ignore the story mechanics and give in to the pure visceral nature of the film, it's an entertaining ride with a few great nostalgia kicks.

Terminator: Dark Fate is the best Terminator movie since T2 but feels more like a chance at setting up a new batch of sequels than a rebirth of the story.

For those of us keeping score, we are now 0-4 for modern Terminator sequels -- maybe it really is time to say goodbye.

First and foremost, the decision to bring Sarah Connor back pays off big time. Linda Hamilton hasn't missed a beat as the world-weary warrior, and gets back to smashing metal mother[frick]ers to smithereens with aplomb.

Seeing Hamilton with the same sunglasses, the same inflexible visage, and a hoard of heavy weaponry is lightly nostalgic - but mostly meaningless.

I did appreciate the power of women in this film, but even more enjoyable was the Terminator's evolution and role.

A potent mix of action, suspense, and well-timed humor...

It's derivative, sure, but you probably won't hate yourself for sitting through it.

The Terminator franchise looked a goner following 2015's botched and baffling reboot, Terminator Genisys, but this cracking new entry brings the sci-fi action thriller series thrillingly back to life.

I love a good action film and dig a sustainable franchise. Terminator: Dark Fate really isn't either of those.

There's nothing to get massively excited over, and much of what occurs is entirely forgettable, but this is still the best Terminator movie since T2.

Photocopying what we've already seen, there's the industrial factory fight, the frenetic motorway pursuit and the cop shop massacre - here transplanted to US Border Patrol in what feels like half-hearted political commentary designed not to offend anyone.

I think it's time to terminate this franchise. [Full review in Spanish]

The film recaptures some of the old verve and delivers a straight-up admixture of AI fantasy and visceral action.

The story is clever and logical, presenting a world where Sarah didn't necessarily prevent Judgment Day, it just got delayed a good couple decades.

Easily the best "Terminator" movie in years. Make of that what you will.

It cherrypicks 'topical' concerns for a thin veneer of 'urgency' that liberally-minded critics lap up, but underneath is an endoskeleton of unpleasant and cynical opportunism swirling into the creative void.
