Terminator: Dark Fate

Linda Hamilton and Arnold Schwarzenegger.

The next chapter in the highly anticipated Terminator franchise is considered a direct sequel to the first two films and reunites Linda Hamilton and Arnold Schwarzenegger in starring roles after 28 years.

Joining the reunion is creator James Cameron, credited as co-writer and co-producer, his first involvement since Terminator 2: Judgement Day in 1991.

Fans of the franchise who felt the last few terminator flicks were disappointing will be pleasantly surprised by the latest US$200 million instalment, which boasts exceptional CGI, high octane car chases and non-stop heart-pumping action sequences that will leave audiences gasping for air.

The story admittedly lacks originality, seemingly a rehash of the first two films; a young girl considered ‘the future’ needs protection from a futuristic liquid Terminator, so Sarah Connor and a hybrid cyborg human fight their most vicious battle yet to ensure her safety.

If movie-goers can forgive aging Arnie’s signature bad acting and poor delivery of dialogue, they will be thoroughly entertained by the latest ambitious instalment which is being regarded as the finale of the series – but is it?? (MMo)
