The first reactions to Terminator: Dark Fate have arrived online with critics praising Arnold Schwarzenegger’s latest sequel in the Terminator series.
It’s been four years since Terminator: Genisys arrived in theaters, disappointing many longtime fans of the series starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. However, it seems like the latest sequel might just repair the damage. The first wave of reactions to Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Terminator: Dark Fate imply that it’s the best sequel since Terminator 2: Judgement Day. While many critics are praising the entire cast, Mackenzie Davis seems to be receiving the most love for her role as Grace.
Take a look at the reactions to the latest Terminator film on social media below.
#TerminatorDarkFate is easily the best Terminator movie since T2. Has some fantastic action and loved how the film features 3 female protagonists that all kick-ass. So awesome seeing Linda Hamilton back as Sarah Connor. pic.twitter.com/15Yb6cC18W

#TerminatorDarkFate is a blast. Came for the return of Linda Hamilton (amazing) & reprisal of Schwarzenegger (badass) but was surprised and happy to come out caring most about Natalia Reyes’ Dani & Mackenzie Davis’ Grace. It gave me a lot of hope for where Terminator will go next pic.twitter.com/vfWPFwMnzS

#TerminatorDarkFate is better than you think it’s going to be. Its trying hard to be the Force Awakens of Terminator movies, and mostly succeeds. But it’s lacking Cameron’s innovation, evolution and directing. Arnold is fantastic, the best of his post T2 Terminator appearances.

Is #TerminatorDarkFate the best since T2? Yup. Linda Hamilton’s return makes a BIG difference, Mackenzie Davis kicks all the ass, & Natalia Reyes is an excellent anchor. Gabriel Luna’s Rev-9 is a winner too. Physicality, VFX, fights – all spot on! Glad they gave this another go. pic.twitter.com/4Q1FNN49Hw

Excited to report Terminator: Dark Fate is the best sequel in the franchise since T2. It's a "return to basics" movie — reminiscent of Star Wars: The Force Awakens in that way — but the new heroes are fantastic, it's great to see the legends kicking ass, and the action is great. pic.twitter.com/aAHSXhFyA4

Terminator: Dark Fate is basically Terminator: The Force Awakens. A satisfying, exciting reboot that’s essentially the best parts of T1 & T2 in a blender. Davis, Reyes & Hamilton are excellent, the action wows & while it’s familiar, it’s easily the best T3 yet. Terminator is back pic.twitter.com/W1emrXIq5C

I was skeptical of TERMINATOR: DARK FATE. Thought the trailers were not great. But I would up enjoying it quite a bit, and the difference maker (vs the other post T2 sequels) is Linda Hamilton. It’s always been HER story and Hamilton adds the needed weight here.

#TerminatorDarkFate succeeds as both a suitable closing chapter for the original two James Cameron films and a possible gateway to exciting new chapters ahead. While the threshold may be low thanks to the last three would-be franchise resets, Dark Fate is the best one since T2. pic.twitter.com/bI9eOuEUEB
