Terminator: Dark Fate (NC16)
Starring Linda Hamilton, Mackenzie Davis, Natalia Reyes, Arnold Schwarzenegger
Directed by Tim Miller
In case you’ve lost count, Terminator: Dark Fate is the sixth entry in the time-travelling killer cyborg series and it’s the third one — other than the 1984 original and 1991’s Terminator: Judgment Day — to be approved by creator James Cameron.
Taking a leaf from last year’s Halloween playbook, Dark Fate brazenly abandons the storylines in previous chapters (including the short-lived TV spin-off The Sarah Connor Chronicles) — all of which Cameron had zero involvement — picking up two decades after the events in T2.
Cameron, being the King of the World, managed to persuade ex-wife Linda Hamilton to come out of retirement and reprise her iconic role of survivalist champ Sarah Conner, still a big Second Amendments supporter, always prepared to crash any apocalyptic party.
