Decades after Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton) prevented Judgment Day, a lethal new Terminator is sent to eliminate the future leader of the resistance. In a fight to save mankind, battle-hardened Sarah Connor teams up with an unexpected ally (Arnold Schwarzenegger) and an enhanced super soldier to stop the deadliest Terminator yet. Humanity’s fate hangs in the balance in this action-packed thrill ride from Tim Miller, the Director of Deadpool, and Producer James Cameron.
This is the Terminator sequel I’ve been waiting for. Linda Hamilton has been missing in all the films since Terminator 2, so it’s only fitting that we ignore all the previous sequels for this storyline. And it works. It’s heart-pounding suspense with heartbreaking drama that only these leading ladies can supply. Arnold is back as well, as Terminator “Carl” who has moved on with life and sees the error of his ways. As a Terminator fan, I thoroughly enjoyed this installment. Certainly more than the previous several installments. There is plenty of fan service, and that’s okay. The action is non-stop and intense. The CGI is fantastic. And there is plenty of heart that keeps viewers invested.
