In Mexico City, a newly modified liquid Terminator -- the Rev-9 model -- arrives from the future to kill a young factory worker named Dani Ramos. Also sent back in time is Grace, a hybrid cyborg human who must protect Ramos from the seemingly indestructible robotic assassin.

“Terminator: Dark Fate” is a movie designed to impress you with its scale and visual effects, but it’s also a film that returns, in good and gratifying ways, to the smartly packaged low-down genre-thriller classicism that gave the original “Terminator” its kick. The new movie earns its lavish action (and its emotions, too), because no matter how violently baroque its end-of-days vision, its storytelling remains tethered to the earth. […] “Dark Fate” is a lean, tough, and absorbing sequel that taps back into the enthralling surface of the “Terminator” series’ comic-book kinetics as well as the sinister sweet spot of its grandiose pulp mythology.
Director Tim Miller (“Deadpool”) has hit a reset button, and he finds just the right mix of action, suspense and, when needed, old-school comic relief. ... [L]ike sinking into your favorite chair, “Dark Fate” soon settles into its most pleasurable and familiar groove, with the arrival of two pivotal characters from the first two films: Sarah, even more badass than her appearance in 1991’s “T2,” and a new, surprisingly domesticated version of Schwarzenegger’s T-800 model Terminator, who is calling himself Carl.

It’s not a stretch to say that Linda Hamilton is the main reason you should rush out to see Terminator: Dark Fate posthaste. … [T]he thrill over seeing an OG action-movie heroine step back into those combat boots is still very much present. The scowl, the screen presence, the hard stares, her hardboiled patter alternating with pleading line readings, the sense that a pulse matters more than pixels — Hamilton reminds you exactly what’s been missing from these films. Who knows whether she’ll be back. She’s here now, and what a glorious difference it makes.

Dark Fate feels like a real Terminator movie at last, from the breakneck, deeply terrifying chase that opens it to its moving finale. This was never just Arnold Schwarzenegger’s series; it’s Linda Hamilton that’s the key ingredient. […] For the first time in a long time, we can look to the future of Terminator with hope.
