A much better tie in to the original two
Mackenzie Davis is a supremely watchable lead and the entire cast is strong
Creative action sequences backed up with surprisingly strong thematic through lines

A little less focus on jokes would have made this one stand out

After the mediocre performances of Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, Terminator Salvation and *shudder* Terminator: Genisys (and also Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles – which we really liked, by the way) they’re getting rid of all that pesky mess with the old “alternate timeline” explanation, and picking up after the events of Terminator 2: Judgement Day.

Join Quinny, Dion, Peta and Jill as they pick apart this latest offering of murder robots from the future!
