T6

Terminator: Dark Fate is directed by Tim Miller, with a screenplay from a story by James Cameron. It is the sixth installment in the Terminator franchise and the direct sequel to The Terminator (1984) and Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991).

This is a retread of the second film. Again, a killer Terminator time travels back to kill and again another (this time partially human) is sent back to protect.

As a lot of reviewers have complained about, the story undermines everything achieved in the second film. John Connor is killed, and we are now in a new timeline. But it’s the old timeline as the Terminators are the same. Confused ?, probably. There isn’t much that make sense here. And when it comes to liquid Terminators, someone should try separating the liquid so that when it reforms, there is less mass to the Terminator.

Such complaints don’t really matter. As an action Sci-Fi movie it works. There are fights, car chases and the third act just goes on and on… when (and how) are they going to kill the thing !

Some people have very specific problems….
