TERMINATOR: DARK FATE (Theatrical Release USA 2019)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.1|5.0 Starsìììì

Terminator: Dark Fate, actually better than the last film Terminator Genisys, has an improved plotline/storyline. However, The Terminator, Terminator 2: Judgment Day, and maybe the Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines still top the entertainment value of the Terminator series including this film, Terminator: Dark Fate. The James- Cameron-directed films seem more realistic and flow better than the rest of the series to include the Jonathan Mostow-directed film Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines. Now, that being said, let’s get into what makes the film work. Terminator: Dark Fate’s acting is good with Linda Hamilton from the first two films reprising her role after 37 years has passed since 1984’s The Terminator release to theaters. This film has good actors: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Mackenzie Davis, Natalie Reyes, Gabriel Luna, and Diego Boneta. Overall, the movie is a good watch, but it seems the series has almost run its course even though the story has been set up for a sequel.
