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.

After this redemptive film, Terminator execs are probably thinking: 'I'll be back.'

The good news is, director Tim Miller gets most of them right as he clearly understands that you don't have to overcomplicate matters by deconstructing the franchise's time-travel elements.

It works right up until someone very familiar appears and it's not Sarah. [Full review in Spanish].

Tim Miller has done a rock-solid job within the boundaries of the story, but this is a film that [...]really needed to strike out and make a statement of purpose.

A returning Linda Hamilton keeps things lively, yet Terminator: Dark Fate proves to be the same old plodding machine, only this time there is a woke component to its mechanics that really grinds gears.

The Terminator Series like The Godfather and The Godfather Part II before it, are burdened by staggering, genre and cinema redefining perfection. The rest of the franchise, including Dark Fate, are frozen.

This latest Terminator chapter serves to move things along by highlighting the females in order to pass the legacy on to them.

This is not only a great film to reinvigorate the franchise, but the type of movie you will be kicking yourself if you don't see on a big screen.

Dark Fate is one of the better Terminator films and even though it should be the last one, who the hell knows at this point.

I never expected to love Terminator: Dark Fate. I came away from it thinking it was a love letter to the best of the series, and a statement on what blockbusters can do in 2019.

The younger stars are appealing, but it's the vets, Hamilton and Schwarzenegger, that give the film its heart. The two of them seem to have a ball upending iconic catchphrases from the earlier movies.

As well done as the set pieces are... they can't hide how little the characters have been developed.

In short, there is little reason for it to exist since it doesn't move the series forward but rather backward to try and reinvigorate / update a 35 year-old franchise.

Human machines are still a thing of the future, but humans making machine-like movies is unmistakably a thing of the present.

It wants to be Terminator 2, and it isn't.
December 6, 2019
There's only so much even Hamilton and Davis can do with such one-note characters (though Hamilton, at least, seems like she's having a ton of fun), and Dark Fate doesn't seem especially interested in seeing them as anything more.
December 4, 2019
It's a shame, really, that Dark Fate seems destined to be the end for the franchise as it has far more quality than any of its post-T2 predecessors.
