Its quite weird how it has taken me over 3 weeks to coordinate my thoughts and come up with this review. You know the kind of movies where you watch for like 3 hours and then when its over, you don’t know want really happened. I really didn’t know what went on and how it transpired, but then you just have to see it to make your own judgment. I guess they didn’t just get it right for me, as some of the scenes dragged for too long. They could have been better.
This new sequel was directed by Tim Miller and written by David S. Goyer, Justin Rhodes, & Billy Ray. Quite a complicated storyline that was difficult to connect and understand. The movie had good production, cinematography and good cast, which made up a bit for the down sides. It was good to see Arnold Schwarzenegger again after a very long time. Arnold started this journey in 1984, 1991, 2003, 2009, 2015, and this new sequel in 2019, although most people liked it, I guess I didn’t get it clearly and couldn’t comprehend why human machines will run and fight for over 2 hours. I suspect we might have another sequel soon, which I sincerely don’t think is necessary, but then lets us watch and see.
If you have being following the story, you would know that’s it has being more than 2 decades since we last saw Sarah Connor ;lose her son and save the world from judgment day. Her heroism changed the fate of the world.
This story is centered around Natalia Reyes who is referred to as Dani Ramos and her brother Diego Boneta, who was living a simple life with their biological father in Mexico, a very busy and populated city. A few minutes into the movie a very dangerous terminator (a Rev 9) (Gabriel Luna) appears from out of space, kills her dad and starts to chase after her. The entire movie entailed Dani running from one point to the other all in the quest to save her life, for her to achieve that, she had to join forces with 2 warriors: Makenzie Davis who was referred to as Grace and an enhanced soldier from the future and the battle ready Sarah Connor who had to return again to save the world. The Rev 9 was hell bent on killing them all so they sought help from Arnold who seemed to be their last hope on earth.

To my verdict I would score this movie 6/10, I think the movie was just simple and too basic for an action movie, I felt the scenes dragged for too long and could have being shortened. The storyline for me was too plain, and deep down in my heart I felt they could have done better, with the end. Maybe I went in there expecting too much.
Anyway, for the action movie lovers out there, I am sure a lot of you would still enjoy the movie if you go in with an open heart and the fans of Arnold would always love him, no matter what he does, that shows a true legend in him.
