    I think it will suck. I have no faith in the Deadpool-director coming off making CGI sequences for videogames. 

    I watch it for Edward, Arnold and Linda. 

    And it will forever be sad James Cameron didn't direct a Terminator-movie instead of..... a bunch of Avatars...

    Should be noted though - that this is one of the greatest trailers ever made:

    I never watched that one.  After the Blond terminator movie was so bad I didn't bother with them anymore.

    The movie is boring (AiC on the soundtrack though) but the trailer is amazing.

    Bam from Jackass:

    Due to my buddy Edward Furlong, uh, getting on to film the new Terminator movie – he can’t for a while; he can’t do the Comic-Con called uh, Bell County Comic-Con August 3rd and 4th, so I’ll be going on his behalf.

    Just saw it;



    Terminator: Dark Fate. Not as bad as it could have been. Not a masterpiece as it should have been.

    My review of the film (in Swedish)

    https://filmfenix.se/terminator-dark-fate/

    Google translate:

    The Terminator series has been surprisingly difficult to breathe life into. After previously having producers cough up money with pitches about "doing the same thing again" (Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines), "finally showcasing the future war that fans want to see "(Terminator Salvation) and" nostalgia with a light Marvel-tone" (Terminator: Genisys), has now forced Linda Hamilton to come back as the gimmick to get producers on the train. It has also decided to follow up only the two James Cameron-directed films in the series and shuffle away everything that came in between.

    However, everything is the same in the Terminator world. As always, warriors are sent back in time. One that has a target to eliminate and one that tries to protect that target. This time the victim is Dani, a Mexican girl with the whole world's survival on her shoulders, who, along with an aged Sarah Connor, a sent-back cyborg and yet another T-800 type model, Arnold Schwarzenegger, is chased by a hopelessly more advanced robot.

    James Cameron cursed the movie series when he chose to follow up the original with Terminator 2: Judgment Day, which followed the same structure as the first film - but bigger and more lavish. Because now, the Terminator series has a compelling need for repetition. Is it essential for a movie about time-traveling robots to have a sequence where the evil robot chases the good guys in a giant truck while they only have a passenger car? Do the films always have to start with two being sent back from the future? Mackenzie Davis's role as one of these that has to be sent back becomes completely redundant as soon as Sarah Connor enters the story. They play the same role. Two alpha women who argue about who best protects the only hope of the future. Remove Mackenzie Davis cyborg and the stakes get bigger. Which would not have been to the disadvantage of this movie.

    Sarah Connor has also over the years been transformed into a robot. Her humanity has disappeared. Which contrasts with this movie's T-800 whose AI over the years has constructed its own humanity. However, the film's clumpsy dialogue fits Arnold's robot better, and after a number of bitter comments that Linda Hamilton fails to land, I wishes she had been given more of the role of a silent Clint Eastwoods cowboy, and less of this rebellious teenager with a shitty attitude.

    Director Tim Miller convinces one on occasion that he has understood the tone and weight of James Cameron's films. Gabriel Lunas manages to brilliantly channel Robert Patrick's T-1000 into his evil robot Rev-9 and the filmmakers have been smart enough to afford themselves an R rating. But all too often when it's time for a brawl or a  battle, the film slides over to remind you of the gravity-free Matrix sequels. And on many occasions the computer effects keep the quality of those films. Where did the street fighting feel go when two 200 kilos of robotic bodies collide? What happened to using effects to make us believe in robots of the future instead of the reverse?

    Terminator: Dark Fate is in the end a surprisingly OK film. It's not as bad as it could have been. But it is also not as magnificent as the film series deserves.

    3/5
