Original Terminator star Linda Hamilton and producer James Cameron return to give the franchise a hard reboot.
22 years after the apocalypse that never happened in 1997, history repeats itself with the arrival of a pair of time travellers in New Mexico – one a protector, the other a Terminator. The mutual target this time is a young factory worker named Dani Ramos (Natalia Reyes), who is rescued from the liquid metal clutches of a machine assassin (Gabriel Luna) by augmented future soldier Grace (Mackenzie Davis). During a frenzied freeway chase, a fourth party enters the fray – the legendary Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton), packing some serious firepower and badass attitude. And the girls should come with her if they want to live.
Dark Fate doesn’t rewrite the Terminator timeline, instead using the two Cameron films as a foundation to reset the franchise; hardcore fans will find plenty of temporal knots to unpick concerning Judgment Day and Skynet. Plot similarities notwithstanding, it’s the trinity of Hamilton (still awesome), Cameron, and of course Arnie, that makes Dark Fate feel like the Terminator is well and truly back.
