Plot hole: Sarah turns up on the bridge to fight the Rev-9, we later learn that she is texted the location of where to be as when the terminators travel though time it causes a gravitational anomaly, and this is where she needs to be. The Rev-9 had been there ages killing Dani's dad etc, Sarah would have no idea to be on the bridge after the terminator has chased them though the town - she can't possibly know that location.
I saw this movie in theaters with my dad.
So lately, the last few years, me and my dad have been making it a point to try and go see the big block buster movies that are "guy films" like this in theaters together. Marvel films, Star Wars, Terminator, Predator, Rambo, and more.
So when Dark Fate was hitting theaters, we went and saw it.
I really liked this film. Of course it doesn't hold up to the first two movies but it doesn't need to.
I personally don't think there is a bad film in the franchise yet, and even like Genesys despite some flaws. I think they are over hated on and would even go as far to say that Terminator 3 is my favorite one, even if T2 is the better movie.
Honestly, I would say Salvation is my least favorite of the films, and I still like that movie a lot.
Dark Fate is no exception. It tries to take new risks with some aspects, but then again does still fall into the same tried and true formula of all the films before it, except Salvation.
The action was pretty good, the actors decent, and then Arnold and Linda Hamilton steal the show! But I felt like they were not explored to the best they could have been. Arnold was compelling and I would much have liked to have seen the development of what he went through over the years since the event at the start of the movie.
That being said, the movie is still satisfactory and I thought well done. Not near as good as some of the others, but not bad either. It's worth a watch and a great popcorn flick.
Mistake Status: Didn't catch any on my first watch, but wasn't really looking either. Will probably revisit it it some day.
The action scenes are well done, and it's nice to see Linda Hamilton returning to the franchise. Arnold Schwarzenegger's T-800 even has a pretty interesting off-screen character arc that honestly would have made for a more fascinating movie.
Ultimately though, this movie falls flat for recycling the same story beats as the other films in the franchise, in which a Terminator is sent back in time to kill a human that will eventually become a savior of the future human race and another Terminator is sent back to protect that human.
Perhaps one day James Cameron will return to the fold as both screenwriter and director and give us a film that at least lives up to the legacy of the franchise established by the first two films.
Question: What happened to the military guy that was injured and left in the Carl's van? Did they simply drop him off the plane along with the van?
