Terminator: Dark Fate is a gripping story about three immensely powerful women. That's it. That's the criticism. (Ok, not really …)
Created by James Cameron and Gale Anne Hurd, the Terminator franchise is probably one of the best known for audiences outside of comic book stores, Star Wars and The Lord of the Rings . But the series has been a mixed, mostly awful bag in recent years – with the exception of the undervalued television series Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles . Fortunately, Dark Fate lets us all Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines (2003), Terminator Salvation (2009) and Terminate Terminator Genisys (201
Nearly 30 years after Sarah Connor, her son John, and the protective T-800 thought they were promoting Judgment Day. Sarah is back, even harder than the last time we met her, and the Terminators too. Gone were the days of those responsible when they forgot that this franchise was a women's story. Now, for good reason, they've added two more women, and it's a complex story about our purpose in the world and what to do when that purpose comes to an end. Similar to T2 was pretty much a product of the 90s, Dark Fate is a film of the now. For a film dealing with time travel and advanced robotics, history is likely to surprise with some ubiquitous current problems in our society – Automation (read: Robots) Accepting People's Jobs and Immigration ].
I did not expect to have a David S. Goyer script go there (he shares script credits with Justin Rhodes and Billy Ray). While the film on immigration is not too deep, it revolves around a latinx woman from Mexico named Dani Ramos (Natalia Reyes) – our new "Sarah Connor" if you like – and the story after that. Bring her to the United States, it would be very strange if they had ignored it. The approach is not as thoughtful as it should be, but there are some pretty significant moments that will surely be a hit for many viewers.
Reyes and Mackenzie Davis ( Halt and Catch Fire, Black Mirror ) have the same duty to play as newcomers to the franchise with crucial roles. Reyes is a welcome sight for the very white action genre and the story allows Dani to be a complicated female character that is anything but stereotypical. She can even speak Spanish for a good part of the movie. What's shocking is that Davis plays a completely different kind of complicated female figure, which will inevitably be the fault of a certain segment of men. Their performance and physicality in the role should make Hollywood even more tear down their door than they already are.
And then of course there's Linda Hamilton, who returns as Sarah Connor and makes the once innocent waitress a living weapon. It's not often that older women appear old on the screen, but Dark Fate shows her all the traits expected of a woman who has spent more than half of her life fighting against her machines kill. After being away from the character for 28 years, Hamilton brings the strength, vulnerability and viciousness you expect from Sarah and others.
Strangely, it almost felt as if Arnold Schwarzenegger had been completely excluded from this film. On his first appearance, I wish he'd do less, not anymore, though the story does allow some really great acting moments for the man who just can not get enough of his most famous role. Also on the Metal side, Diego Luna's Rev-9 Terminator is a pretty alarming opponent, considering that this model can be split into two whenever it feels like it. He is of course a man of few words, but the few he speaks have the weight. You can recall that Edward Furlong's return was premiered this summer at the San Diego Comic-Con though the actor further stated that it was a " small role .
