He makes a cameo appearance, which
is meaningless. Doesn't matter, 2 was
the only good one. Great story and
great early CGI. Remember how amazed
we were at some of it? Kid stuff now..


Saw Terminator Dark Fate last night.

Arnold's role is definitely more than just a cameo. Movie is 2 hours 10 minutes, Arnold shows up 1 hour 10 minutes in and is there for the rest of the movie.

He is also appears briefly in the very first scene of the movie (it takes place shortly after T2 via some CGI de-aging on him, Linda Hamilton, and Edward Furlong).

I enjoyed it. It's an entertaining movie with some nice action sequences. If anyone goes in expecting some deep sci-fi film, they will be disappointed. This one is more focused on having the new characters interact with the old ones while occasionally getting chased by robots. Thankfully all the characters are likeable.

It's nowhere near as good as the first two Terminator movies, but definitely better than the last couple, which I thought were awful. Story-wise, this one just completely ignores all the other movies besides T1 and T2, which was a good idea.

The real reason to see it is to see Linda Hamilton reprise her Sarah Connor role, one of the all-time great female characters. And she does not disappoint.

I didn't realize (or probably forgot) Linda Hamilton was James Cameron's ex-wife.
