Terminator: Dark Fate, 2019 - ★★½

Nothing really new here... Another middling Terminator sequel where the future is decided and we get to see two new terminators battle. Is all been done before and I found myself not caring about any of the new characters. Thankfully Arnold is brought in mid-movie for some much needed comic relief.

There were a few nice touches like the bonus scene at the start featuring a young (de-aged?) Edward Furlong and some good lines by the forever bad ass Linda Hamilton. Arnold is the big draw though. He's not on screen much but when he is it's impossible to take your eyes off him.

I don't think we need any more Terminator films unless the narrative gets changed up significantly. Don't waste your money seeing this in a theater to witness a drab story and cartoony cut-rate special effects.
