Terminator: Dark Fate – Early Reviews Say It's The Best Since T2

When the fifth movie in the long-running Terminator series, 2015’s Terminator Genisys, flopped at the box office, there was much speculation that we’d be waiting a long time for the next one. But the return of series creator James Cameron and original stars Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton ensured that a new movie was greenlit, and it hits theaters this month.

Terminator: Dark Fate is a direct sequel to Cameron’s 1991 classic T2: Judgment Day, and is directed by Deadpool Tim Miller, with Cameron producing and overseeing the story. The film focuses on a new Terminator, Rev-9 (Gabriel Luna), who is trying to kill a woman called Dani (Natalia Reyes). Hamilton returns as Sarah Connor, with Mackenzie Davis playing Grace, a cybernetically enhanced soldier who must protect Dani. And of course, Schwarzenegger is back as the T-800, the Terminator from the original movies. Check out the trailer here, plus the first clip.

Terminator: Dark Fate has now now been screened for critics ahead of its November 1 release. There were also a series of surprise fan screenings at Alamo theaters across the US. Fans attended thinking they were about to watch T2 and some new footage from Dark Fate, but in fact got to enjoy the new movie, with a specially-recorded introduction by Schwarzenegger and Hamilton.

Opinion so far is positive, with many critics stating that the movie is easily the best in the series since T2. Admittedly, none of the previous three films were particularly well received, but comparisons to Star Wars: The Force Awakens and praise for both the action and the performances will get fans excited. Check back soon for GameSpot’s review of the film, and in the meantime, here’s what the critics are saying about Terminator: Dark Fate on Twitter:
