More than two decades have passed since Sarah Connor prevented Judgment Day, changed the future, and re-wrote the fate of the human race. Dani Ramos (Natalia Reyes) is living a simple life in Mexico City with her brother (Diego Boneta) and father when a highly advanced and deadly new Terminator — a Rev-9 (Gabriel Luna) — travels back through time to hunt and kill her. Dani’s survival depends on her joining forces with two warriors: Grace (Mackenzie Davis), an enhanced super-soldier from the future, and a battle-hardened Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton). As the Rev-9 ruthlessly destroys everything and everyone in its path on the hunt for Dani, the three are led to a T-800 (Arnold Schwarzenegger) from Sarah’s past that may be their last best hope.

A new evil in an alternate timeline was a clever idea, but it was never executed correctly. It seemed Legion was just Skynet with a new Terminator, I was hoping to see more background into this new timeline. Maybe what happens to the ongoing war in the future and how this war is different to Skynet’s.
A repeat of the original films, but with no time to bond with characters or have any context. It was filled with action and explosions, and nothing else. I thought it was going to add something new to the franchise or take it in a new direction.
Great backdrops and entertaining action sequences, it didn’t lack the thrill factor, but you can’t just focus CGI, thats not what makes a great film. If you want nothing but fighting and explosions, this is the film for you. I did see some questionable looking figures that just looked out of place, some REV-9 moments looked odd compared to the others.
A strong and cool performance from Linda Hamilton, with good chemistry with Arnold Schwarzenegger. They both made the most rememberable scenes in the film, most of the other actors didn’t compare to them. Gabriel Luna did well to make the REV-9 a formidable foe, but the character seemed unstoppable at points, making it repetitive and bland. The rest of the cast were out of place and had no impact on the story or the entertainment to me.
