Here are review links for this film submitted by our members:

  • [New] | Marco Albanese @ Stanze di Cinema [Italian]
  • Andrea Chase @ KillerMovieReviews.com
    • Excerpt: A dull and incoherent effort with soupy flashbacks, interludes of pretentious metaphysics, and astonishingly inert action.
  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: Linda Hamilton will make you realize how much she’s been missed, her delivery wrapped in deadpan sarcasm that cuts like a samurai blade.
  • Herman Dhaliwal @ Cinema Sanctum
    • Excerpt: Dark Fate can be frustratingly repetitive for the franchise, but it does bring certain thrills that haven’t been felt in this series since 1991.
  • Rob DiCristino @ F This Movie
  • James Jay Edwards @ FilmFracture
  • Roderick Heath @ This Island Rod
    • Excerpt: Despite the familiarity of the situation, Dark Fate gets off to a surprisingly good start, in large part thanks to Davis, who expertly depicts the bruised and wilted gamine within a tech-jacked frame crowned with a curt thatch of blonde hair…
  • Mark Hobin @ Fast Film Reviews
    • Excerpt: Thanks to a foolish $185 million budget, this was a colossal flop at the box office, but guess what? It’s really not that bad.
  • MaryAnn Johanson @ FlickFilosopher.com
    • Excerpt: Fight the future. Change the future. Watch the future reset itself so that everything ends up much the same way anyway. Repeat. This time-travelling franchise is, ironically, stuck in the past.
  • Charlie Juhl @ Citizen Charlie
    • Excerpt: Erasing history should only be accomplished by qualified DeLorean-driving teenagers, not re-make sequels pretending three other films never happened.
  • Brent McKnight @ The Last Thing I See
    • Excerpt: Sarah Connor is back and brought at bazooka this time.
  • Aaron Neuwirth @ We Live Entertainment
    • Excerpt: It’s a bumpy road, but this latest machine rises to the challenge.
  • Matt Oakes @
    • Excerpt: A head and shoulders improvement over ‘Genisys’ and easily the best ‘Terminator’ since the 90s, ‘Dark Fate’ celebrates the reunion of Linda Hamilton, Arnold Schwarzenegger and producer James Cameron in style, its bonkers and bombastic go-for-broke approach to retooling the formula both familiar and fun, if excessively noodle-brained at times.
  • Paulo Peralta @ CinEuphoria [Portuguese]
  • Kevin Ranson @ MovieCrypt.com
    • Excerpt: … past its posted 1997 expiration date, Dark Fate relaunches the original Terminator franchise in a meaningful way, embracing the violent spectacle of late 20th century action films using modern effects infused with characters worth caring about.
