‘Terminator: Dark Fate’ 4K UHD Blu-Ray: The Horror News Network Review

Terminator: Dark Fate is available now on digital, and Paramount Pictures will release a 4K UHD and Blu-Ray combo pack for home video on January 28th. The package contains two excellent transfers of the film and a series of special features which offer an interesting glimpse into the production of a movie that carries on the storied tradition of the Terminator franchise.

Terminator: Dark Fate is a direct sequel to the 1991 masterpiece, Terminator 2: Judgment Day. To achieve this feat, James Cameron returned to the franchise as a creative executive producer, and both Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton appear in lead roles. While it’s always a great pleasure, it isn’t much of a surprise to see Schwarzenegger appear in a new Terminator movie (he’s returned to his iconic role on several occasions). However, it’s downright thrilling to see Hamilton back as Sarah Connor, looking like she hasn’t missed a beat since Terminator 2. Several recent films have attempted to bring back the great series leads of yesteryear with mixed results, but the return of Linda Hamilton as Sarah Connor is the absolute best of them. Between her legendary screen presence, her quick-witted one liners, and her downright badass action moments, it is clear that Hamilton and the filmmakers have nailed how to bring back an iconic character to the silver screen. While he isn’t in the film as often, Schwarzenegger glows as usual in Dark Fate, mixing his trademark deadpan humor with a more reflective approach to deliver a T-800 we haven’t seen before. Director Tim Miller clearly understands what made the interactions between Schwarzenegger and Hamilton so interesting in Terminator 2, and he captures and advances their complicated relationship in some key scenes. The other big ode to Terminator 2 lies in the pacing and early action sequences of Dark Fate. A clear effort was put into capturing as much of the road chases in camera as possible, and the pacing of the film (including its moments of downtime) hearken back to the blockbusters of the 90s. read more
