Directed by Tim Miller. With Linda Hamilton, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Mackenzie Davis, Natalia Reyes. Sarah Connor and a hybrid cyborg human must protect a young girl from a newly modified liquid Terminator from the future.
An entertaining follow up to Terminator 1 and Terminator 2 which discards everything that came after it. The TV show and the other movies are now just alternate futures that never happened. The series has always played fast and loose with timelines and who’s done what and when, so the slight invalidation of these possible futures isn’t too painful.
Seeing Linda Hamilton back on screen was a pleasure and Mackenzie Davis is an fitting addition to the franchise. It took me a while to place where I knew the new Rev 9 Terminator from, that’s Gabriel Luna, who played the best supernatural guest start that Agents of SHEILD had for it’s entire run: Ghost Rider! I still hold out hope that he’ll come back to the character, though it’s sounding like we’re going to get more Blaze action instead.
Dark Fate is worth the price of admission, all the set pieces are worth your time to watch in a legit theater.
