The first social media reactions are in for Terminator: Dark Fate and they largely praise the film, with many calling it the best sequel since Terminator 2: Judgement Day.
Paramount has screened Terminator: Dark Fate for select members of the press and the first reactions have started popping up online. As more reactions continue to surface, it appears one thing is accurate — Dark Fate is a true return to form for the Terminator franchise. Most critics are praising stars Linda Hamilton and Mackenzie Davis while pumping the movie up as the equivalency of The Force Awakens for the Terminator franchise.
Unsurprisingly, it is Hamilton’s return to the Terminator series that is getting a lot of the praise from those critics who’ve had the opportunity to see Terminator: Dark Fate during secret screenings at the Alamo Drafthouse. Check out a sampling of their reactions, below:
“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.”
