Any Terminator movie with James Cameron’s name on it needs to live up to certain expectations:
- Spectacular & inventive action set pieces
- Great one-liners including genuine laugh-breaks
- Groundbreaking special effects
Let’s see if this extended feature entitled “Dani’s Mission” lives up to them:
No, No, & No
The C-130 finale was something we saw in Spider-Man: Homecoming.
I guess “I kill terminators” might qualify as some kind of attempt at an applause line.
But that’s it.
What the hell is with the focus Hispanic audience with the title and the dialogue in the trailer? Is Mexico and South America a huge, make-or-break market now?
This is just unnecessary and rote.
How rote? Just read the logline:
Linda Hamilton (“Sarah Connor”) and Arnold Schwarzenegger (“T-800”) return in their iconic roles in Terminator: Dark Fate, directed by Tim Miller (Deadpool) and produced by visionary filmmaker James Cameron and David Ellison. Following the events of Terminator 2: Judgment Day, Terminator: Dark Fate also stars Mackenzie Davis, Natalia Reyes, Gabriel Luna, and Diego Boneta.
They aren’t even telling you what the movie is about because they don’t need to — it’s the same fucking movie as Terminator 2: Judgement Day!
If You Are Still Interested…
This Friday, you can get an “exclusive look” at Terminator: Dark Fate in IMAX theatres that are playing Joker.
Otherwise, you can wait until it self-terminates the franchise on November 1, 2019.
