Director Tim Miller helmed the sixth installment in the Terminator franchise, which reunites Linda Hamilton and Arnold Schwarzenegger in a timeline that unfolds two decades after the events of the first movie. An aging Sarah Connor joins forces with a cybernetically-enhanced female soldier from 2042—and her former nemesis—to protect a young girl from an advanced Terminator model from the dystopian future.

Terminator: Dark Fate [SteelBook] [Includes Digital Copy] [4K Ultra HD Blu-ray/Blu-ray] 
I loved this movie! I thought they did a great job of staying true to what made Terminator special. T1 and T2 are classics but Dark Fate is easily the best Terminator since then. It stays true to form and retains that feel and tone of the first two. From the beginning you’re in for an exhilarating ride. Terminator is once again a thriller/action movie with just the right amount of comedy to provide you with a breather. I loved the new cast such as Grace and the Rev-9 and Arnold is a living legend that finds himself in a new and interesting role. The return of Sarah Connor is great. She was there from the beginning and her absence was felt in previous installments. Overall this is a great movie and one that I hope can launch Terminator into a new renaissance be it through feature length films or streaming series’. Terminator: Dark Fate is a worthy successor to Terminator 2: Judgement Day.
I would recommend this to a friend
Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Great action, very enjoyable
Owned for less than 1 week when reviewed.
This turned out better than some would have you believe. I enjoyed it and thought it had some great action sequences. Looks and sounds awesome in 4K.
A good movie to watch, but doesn’t bring anything!

Is this a good movie? Yes, especially if you’ve never seen a Terminator movie before. But that’s the problem; it’s been 30+ years since the first one came out, not to mention the sequels that came after it, so the likelihood of that being the case is small to none. And in that sense, while it’s a good and entertaining movie, like the recent Star Wars trilogy, it doesn’t offer anything new, or nothing we haven’t already seen before. There’s maybe one surprising thing in the very beginning of the movie, but after that, it’s just a compilation of greatest hits and thematic beats from all of the previous James Cameron Terminator movies.
The problem with the Terminator movies that came after T2 as I see it, is that the first 2 movies used special effects to enhance the stories being told, while the ones that followed tried to tell the story with SPX. The first Terminator movie was a love story with sci-fi elements, and the second was a ground breaking sci-fi action movie about a mother doing whatever it took to protect her child from death. T2 was ground breaking for its infusion of a strong “leading lady” role during a time when such roles were few and far between (if they existed at all), along with SPX that had not only never been seen before but also revolutionized the way movies would be filmed/shot going forward, with an original story concept that continued to build upon the foundation of the Terminator world that had been established in the first one.
None of the subsequently following movies did this, although I will make an allowance for Terminator Salvation, because as bad as that movie became after Sam Worthington’s character is revealed to be a Terminator, it at least took a chance to advance the story by taking us directly into the horrific future the first 2 films merely hinted at. And while I’m on the subject, this is where I think all/any new Terminator movie should be focused on exploring going forward, because if nothing else, Terminator Dark Fate only reinforces the realization that there’s really nothing new to mine from stories within this franchise that take place in the present timeframe.
Dark Fate seems to simply take the special effects from T2 and apply them to the plot of the original, but with different actors, which again, doesn’t move the needle regarding the Terminator world itself, and thus we end up with a movie that is really just a good action movie but not groundbreaking in any way, nor significant in any way other than the stunt casting of the original stars themselves.
I enjoyed it and recommend it, but I only enjoyed it because I hadn’t seen it yet, and I was able to watch it in the comfort of my own home with my surround sound turned up, and I only recommend it because I like action movies and this one was decent enough to spend the time watching it. I gave it 4 stars because it was better than I expected, but I wasn’t impressed by the movie itself considering it was touted as James Cameron coming back to the helm along with Linda Hamilton and Arnold.
I'm glad that I didn't listen to reviews on this. Mind you, I am someone who has enjoyed every installment of the Terminator franchise, however I can see and acknowledge the faults. I think any movie with time travel is faulty. Anyway, this entry, a direct sequel to T2: Judgment Day is entertaining. In standard modern Blockbuster fanfare, there's a lot of fast moving, explosive set pieces, but there's some quiet moments. I think Linda Hamilton was great and she portrayed the anger and sadness of Sarah perfectly. PQ and AQ is great, so for fans of the film, I recommend it.
My purchase of Terminator Dark Fate came complete with slipcover. As for the discs, the video and audio quality are excellent. Especially the Dolby ATMOS audio, it will rock your socks off of you have a sound system. This is how you do it. Excellent 4K UHD release with plenty of bonus features as well. If you're a fan of Terminator, this is a good buy. And if you have a 4K system with surround sound, expect nothing short of awesomeness in terms of recreating the theatrical experience at home. I'm happy with this purchase.
So the idea behind this is a total remake of what the original Terminator was all about. Someone from the future comes back to the present, and... you get the idea. The focus on Dark Fate is more on 3 women and not Arnold this time. The plot was ok but it missed the excitement of what the original Terminator was all about. All in all - Story to me is 3 stars.
Video Quality - I watch this with HDR10 turned on (no Dolby Vision in my HT) in my BENQ 4K Projector. The dark scenes were clear with HDR, but some dim areas came out more gray than black (for example - scenes inside the C17 plane), The day scenes were WARM in color (bit on the reddish side). I think it under utilized the 2160p - film could be sharper. 4 stars.
Audio Quality - Dedicated HT was setup with 5.1.2 Dolby Atmos overhead speakers. LFE did not hold back. Speaker separations on scene were clear (like the drone attacks.) Sound level heights on my overhead speakers were amazing. All in All - this is where the 4K disc excel. All in all 5 stars filling the soundstage in my HT.
