Tim Miller (Deadpool) directs this next installment into the Terminator franchise. This time around, Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton) and a “retired” T-800 Terminator going by the name Carl (Arnold Schwarzenegger) join forces with enhanced soldier, Grace (Mackenzie Davis), who’s been sent from the future to protect Daniella “Dani” Ramos (Natalia Reyes). If Dani lives she’ll give birth to a Resistance leader who will stop an A.I. called Legion, who like Skynet hopes to destroy humankind. They’re being pursued by Rev-9 (Gabriel Luna), an advanced terminator that’s able to split in two.

If it all sounds a little familiar, it’s because it is, but it’s also nice to see Hamilton and Schwarzenegger from the original 1984 film and the equally good sequel, Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991) back together again. Yes, it’s essentially the same plot about time travelers battling to either kill or save a future mother who will give birth to the leader who will save humanity, but it’s a lot better than, say, Terminator Salvation (2009) and Terminator Genisys (2015). (128 min.)
