Immediate reaction when he end credit rolls
Since TERMINATOR 2: JUDGMENT DAY the magnificent James Cameron gets involved and the audience especially the loyal fans of the series are guaranteed a speedy action packed ride.

The Story of TERMINATOR: DARK FATE
More than two decades have passed since Sarah Connor ((Linda Hamilton). prevented Judgment Day, changed the future, and re-wrote the fate of the human race. Dani Ramos (Natalia Reyes) is living a simple life in Mexico City with her brother (Diego Boneta) and father when a highly advanced and deadly new Terminator — a Rev-9 (Gabriel Luna) — travels back through time to hunt and kill her.

Dani’s survival depends on her joining forces with two warriors: Grace (Mackenzie Davis), an enhanced super-soldier from the future, and a battle-hardened Sarah Connor. As the Rev-9 ruthlessly destroys everything and everyone in its path on the hunt for Dani, the three are led to a T-800 (Arnold Schwarzenegger) from Sarah’s past that may be their last best hope.

TERMINATOR 2: JUDGMENT DAY movie review
The return of the maverick James Cameron with the legendary T-800 (Arnold Schwarzenegger) and the iconic Sarah Connor ((Linda Hamilton) wins in both action and emotion. A most vital ‘Terminator’ follow up since ‘T2’, this human v/s machine war by Tim Miller impresses with its scale, visual effects and pulse rising action in this nicely packaged crowd pleasing action thriller that is nothing short of a pleasant ‘kick’ for the loyal enthusiast.

The smarter approach where the nostalgia of the first two parts of TERMINATOR series is maintained. The decision to keep the three women at front (James Cameron idea in my opinion) does the decisive kill. Linda Hamilton as the fierce Sarah Connor is fantastic. Her moments with Arnold along with Mackenzie Davis and Natalia Reyes are the major highlights after the action. Arnold Schwarzenegger is entertaining; he plays to the galley and pleases his fans.

Flaws
In the all the pulse rising, action packed razzmatazz, a thoroughly convincing purpose behind Rev-9 (Gabriel Luna) pledge to kill Dani Ramos (Natalia Reyes) and destroy the future is missing.

The villain lacks the much required deadly menace. Resulting in TERMINATOR 2: JUDGMENT DAY ending up as a high octane action packed tale of redemption that lacks the sweeping hope.

Final words
TERMINATOR: DARK FATE is the best after TERMINATOR 2: JUDGMENT DAY and this is the best reason for anyone to enjoy this escapist action packed fun.
