Terminator: Dark Fate (2019)



What the f*ck did you just do James Cameron? Seriously, WHAT....THE.....****. I'm amazed that I was able to avoid all spoilers for Terminator: Dark Fate before I got the chance to sit down and watch it myself and needless to say, I was shocked....SHOCKED at how they opened the movie by killing off John Connor on screen. I never in a million years expected Cameron to go down this road and the reason why: Alien 3. Ya see, what made Aliens such a spectacular movie in its own right was the relationship forged between Ripley and Newt as she became Newt's defacto Mother as she did whatever it took to protect her. So, when they opened Alien 3 and we hear that Newt is dead, it really left a bad taste in my mouth because it basically rendered Alien and Aliens as a moot point. There was so much fan outcry for doing this that it basically crippled the series from here on out.

Fast forward to now and here we are again. I just for the life of me can't figured out why Cameron would write this given the fan backlash to them killing off Newt. As I remembered reading years ago, he himself was not happy how they chose to eliminate Newt. So this just begs the question of what was Cameron thinking doing the very same thing 30 years later. Honestly, they didn't have to kill him off in order to tell this new story. There can be multiple targets that are deemed threats to the Terminators in the future. You can still tell the story without basically wiping clean everything that came before. I dunno. Just....speechless.

Okay, with that out of the way, how does Terminator: Dark Fate play as a movie? If you're looking at it just as a movie unto itself, it's actually a fun movie. A lot of great action pieces and the story is as simple as it gets and easy to follow along. Great to see both Linda Hamilton and Arnold Schwarzenegger return in their respective roles. Also really like newcomers Mackenzie Davis, Natalia Reyes, and Gabriel Luna as the main storyline driving this movie. I can easily say this is the best Terminator movie since T2, without a doubt and would gladly add this to my personal DVD library. But it's just not sitting well with me how they started the movie. It was cool to see younger Sarah, John and Terminator in the scene though. Wasn't expecting to see a young Edward Furlong on screen ever again. 4 Stars out 5.
