Story

Rev-9 (Gabriel Luna) a terminator was sent in the future by the machines to kill Dani Ramos (Reyes). For the counter-attack and to safeguard Dani Ramos the Human Resistance sends Grace (Davis), who is a trained enhanced soldier. But Rev-9 has more powers than expected to stop him and here comes the reunion of the first terminator Carl (Arnold Schwarzenegger) with Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton) after 28 years. Now Dani Ramos, Grace, Sarah Connor, Carl, Dani (Natalia Reyes) team up together to defeat Rev-9.

Performances

Linda Hamilton is bang on from her entry till the end and her performance enhanced the movie. Her action sequences, fight scenes and a bit of emotional side are also showcased on the mark by the director showcasing her best in the movie.  

Arnold Schwarzenegger brings a nostalgic feeling to the Terminator franchise movies. He is good as always in the action part but the forced comedy angle did not work out.

Mackenzie Davis has pulled her role effortlessly, the fight sequences, action part on her looked amazing and she has brought a lot of naturality with her performance. Natalia Reyes has done her work perfectly as required for the part and she shines at few action sequences.

Gabriel Luna gave an extraordinary performance for his role as Rev- 9, the most powerful terminator. A new special power, excellent visual effects, graphics have added more weight to his performance. His combat sequences with Arnold Schwarzenegger, other important cast and the way he bounces back gives all new high in the story proceedings.
