Here’s a blast from the past and one that will be familiar to most, perhaps even echo the famous or infamous (depending on how you look at it) line from Arnold Schwarzenegger (the original terminator himself) “I’ll Be Back”. In case you weren’t aware, there is a new terminator movie and no this is not a joke nor a drill, it really is true and it’s titled Terminator: Dark Fate:
Honestly, we weren’t too sure about this one nor did we want to entertain the idea of there being another version of this trilogy…at least one that still had good ol’ Arnold in it but it’s here and so it goes…
The premise for it is set more than two decades passing since Sarah Connor prevented Judgment Day, changed the future, and re-wrote the fate of the human race. Dani Ramos (Natalia Reyes) is living a simple life in Mexico City with her brother (Diego Boneta) and father when a highly advanced and deadly new Terminator — a Rev-9 (Gabriel Luna) — travels back through time to hunt and kill her. Dani’s survival depends on her joining forces with two warriors: Grace (Mackenzie Davis), an enhanced super-soldier from the future, and a battle-hardened Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton). As the Rev-9 ruthlessly destroys everything and everyone in its path on the hunt for Dani, the three are led to a T-800 (Arnold Schwarzenegger) from Sarah’s past that may be their last best hope.
Despite our initial objections, intrigue is something that has always driven us and so we once again find ourselves intrigued by this one. If anything we are interested in seeing how this one plays out, plus we’ve seen all the previous ones and enjoyed them (to some degree) so why not this one? So yes, it’s like he said, he’s definitely back!
