I really liked it. It brought the conclusion together for me.
I stopped watching after 10 minutes. Garbage.
Dont kill me, I kind of enjoyed the movie ._.
I just finished watching Dark fate and I cried twice. I might be bias because I was raised on T2 but the story was fantastic and all actors did very well. The new liquid hybrid terminator was just as terrifying as the original t2 liquid terminator. I loved the movie from beginning to end. I have no idea where the bad reviews came from.
*Linda Hamilton* - 63yrs old and you could still crack an egg over that a-s of hers!
Wow, I completely disagree. As a terminator film this is one of the best and as an action film its simply amazing. T2 > Dark Fate > Salvation > T1 > T3 > ............. Genisis (absolutely horrible).
Normally don’t post his because of what my channel is, but here’s the way I rank them from worst to best:6️⃣ Terminator Salvation:➡️ Cool storyline idea botched by terrible writing, mediocre acting, being PG-13, lacking Arnold (CGI Arnold doesn’t count), lacking a genuinely threatening/scary AF antagonist, lacking a charismatic protagonist (Marcus a Wright has the head of a potato and the blah acting skills to back it up), being the first movie to start a new trilogy, having a child star/scrappy sidekick (not the same thing Furlong was), and just feeling the least like a Terminator movie. It looks and feels like the troubled production that it was. At least I can say it’s the best movie McG ever did, but that’s like saying Transformers was the best movie Michael Bay ever did; the bars pretty low from the start.5️⃣ Terminator: Genisys➡️ Again, a cool storyline idea botched by bad decision making, misguided casting (serious, why Jai Courtney as Kyle Reese), writing that swallowed its own tail, a horrendous script, and an interesting plot twist that was ruined in both in the spoilers and, again, by bad writing and a horrendous script. This was also PG-13 and lacked a genuinely threatening antagonist. Arnold is back, but he can’t save it. This one looks less like a troubled production than Salvation did, but it felt closer to a TV pilot than an actual movie, but that’s not surpassingly considering Alan Taylor (Game of Thrones, among others) directed it. 4️⃣ Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines➡️ This was the closest to a good sequel to T2 for the longest time, and I felt that it got too much hate. The action is solid, the acting (for the most part) was good (especially Kristina Loken as the TX, who is a genuinely scary AF protagonist), an earned R-rating, the return of Arnold, the ending is beautiful, and the message to me (the inevitability of judgment day = the inevitability of our own mortality; instead of running from it or fighting it, it’s better to live it and find a way to make it through). Too bad the tone was all over the place, the humor was way more hit than miss, and the storyline felt like a retread of the first two movies without adding anything new. It’s a good movie, but it’s closer to a parody of the Terminator films than an actual Terminator film.3️⃣ Terminator: Dark Fate➡️ This film is getting too much hate due, more or less, to the timing of the release, as well as franchise fatigue. It’s way better than people give it credit for, and (in my opinion) the best sequel since T2. The action is intense, the characters are likable (particularly Grace), Linda Hamilton AND Arnold reprise their roles brilliantly, Gabriel Luna as the Rev-9 is genuinely scary and intimidating (and updates what T3 attempted to do with the TX), an earned R-rating, the effects are mostly good, and the movie carries on what the first two films started with the same storyline but with some new twists (the Rev-9 splitting into two terminators, which builds upon the notion of liquid meta having its own CPU; Grace being a true cyborg, which is a blend of both Kyle Reese [human] and Uncle Bob [robot/android...let’s be real, Arnold’s character is actually an android]). It’s not perfect; the opening scene (John Connor’s death) was a good move but not handled very smoothly, Arnold’s character introduction (as a reformed Terminator) is a bit weird at first, Dani is a good character but lacks a lot of development, the backstory of Legion is mostly unresolved, and, to be honest, Tim Miller couldn’t resist keeping his mouth shut when advertising the movie (“The character of Grace will scare the shit out of misogynists.”). 2️⃣ The Terminator➡️ I don’t need to explain this one much. It was a pioneering film that gracefully blended sci-fi action and imagination with horror elements to make a beautifully intense story of love, time travel, and the fate of humanity under the potential control of the machines we built to save us. The acting is mostly great, the characters are memorable, there are way too many quotable lines to say here. The main thing that drags this film back is the special effects, which look dated by today’s standard. Most of the practical effects are brilliant, however. Don’t let the second place ranking fool you, this is a landmark film worthy of all the praise it got.1️⃣ Terminator 2: Judgment Day➡️ Take everything I said about the first film, turn it up to eleven, and add special effects that have stood the test of time, and you have one of the best action movies ever made. Period. It isn’t perfect; Edward Furlong can grate one’s nerves after after a few scenes, and some stunts and editing errors are visible in the early releases. But damn, this film is an absolute masterpiece of action, science fiction, and just flat out brilliant story-telling. It’s easy to see why this is the de facto Terminator film to end on.
Spoiler alert, John Conner dies.
Seen every Terminator. This was as good as T2, if not better. You're being way to unfair with this. And as a Fan, I WANT arnold and Linda. Tim Miller knocked it out of the park. And how they ignored the shit terminator movies was great and how they linked T1 and T2 while at the same time erasing that potential future was really well done. Yeah, they had to make it work, cause every Terminator after Salvation was complete shit. Its an SCI FI- ACTION movie. What part of that do you Not get??????
Just watched this. Can't believe how bad it was. I hope this is the end of the Terminator movies for a very very long time.
they should just do a version where some of future human had given up and travel back in time to end everything so that they don't have to suffer anymore since they dont even have the resources to end themselves in the future (enslaved humans/ merged with machines or something). Legion/Skynet send "Protectors" to stop them from ending everything. Future human became the terminators - that would be movie worthy of the title "Dark Fate" instead of the "Same Fate" version we are getting. Sarah can be like - john didn't die for this and forced to team up with skynet to stop the human terminators!
