Terminator: Dark Fate (2019) – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Dark Fate is to the Terminator franchise what Force Awakens is to Star Wars.  A sequel/reboot that plays like a greatest hits version of it’s better, older bigger brother!  That’s okay but don’t think /expect this to be much more than a retreat of T2 because it’s really not.  It has it’s own John Connor, it’s own T1000, it’s own Skynet and it’s own Arnie. Well Arnie.  But still.  That doesn’t mean it’s not fun – until the final act the film does better than expected – but it’s yet another re-tread of a story we’ve seen numerous times before, albeit better than the last few sequels.

Best Bit: Arnie is actually really great fun
