Terminator: Dark Fates (2019)
Terminator: Dark Fate
action, adventure, fiction
Director: Tim Miller
Cast: Mackenzie Davis, Linda Hamilton, Edward Furlong, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Gabriel Luna
Premiere: October 31, 2019
The Mexican girl Dani Ramos (Natalia Reyes) lives herself and does not bother anyone until one day a new generation Terminator (Gabriel Luna) who wants to kill her is announced on the threshold of her parents’ house. The cyborg girl Grace (Mackenzie Davis), who came from the future, also helps to cope with Dani’s problem. She explains to Dani in the form of an educational program that there’s no need for anything, and an aggressive, elderly aunt who got out of nowhere, which, of course, turns out to be Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton). Together they run away from the Terminator and try to understand what to do – run or fight?

For almost thirty years, studio bosses have been trying to figure out what they can do with Terminator, a cult franchise that began with two outstanding films that, in general, did not mean any continuation. But they (in the sense of continuation) still come out and with enviable constancy nobody especially likes: “Terminator 3” was disliked because it destroyed all the meanings built by Cameron; “May the savior come” – because he lost history against the background of beautiful effects; “Genesis” – because it exists at all. For thirty years the studios have been spinning the franchise this way and that, but they haven’t really gotten anything: the most decent thing that has been broadcast on Terminator since 1991 is Frank Miller’s comic book Robocop vs. Terminator. Which, as it were, already says a lot.

Now, after so much time, franchise rights have returned to James Cameron, the man from whom it all began. True, he is now too busy with Avatars to be distracted by long-term franchises, and so he threw all the responsibility on Tim Miller, the director of Deadpool, and from behind the scenes he began to push motivational speeches, which we seem to already have they heard something. “This is a terrific sequel,” “the very sequel that we have been waiting for so long.” Somewhere at this point it was worth beingware: in the same way, five years ago, Cameron spoke about Genesis.

“Dark Fates”, designed to return “the very spirit” of the original dilogy, actually look like an ultimatum hodgepodge of paths and plot moves that unsuccessful sequels brought to the series. This, like Rise of the Machines, is a direct continuation of Terminator 2, aggravating the conflict between people and Skynet (in this case, the Skynet substitute, which is even explained by the funny moral that “people don’t learn anything” ) As in “May the Savior Come,” scenes in the post-apocalyptic future play a big role here. From Genesis to Dark Fates, comedic references and other postmodernist jokes migrated. It could be assumed that the team of scriptwriters (and that’s exactly what the team there, as many as 7 people, including Cameron and David S. Goyer himself) incorporated into the new part all the best that their predecessors came up with, and finally gathered everything into a digestible story. In fact, it rather threw everything into a heap, making such a “Terminator” in a vacuum, an absolute cybernetic simulacrum, incoherent, chaotic and giving a very superficial idea of ​​everything that happened in the franchise from the very beginning.

From Cameron’s original films, there is only a plot similarity – Dark Fates simultaneously copy the first and second parts, interfering with the problems of predetermining the future with the story of a quiet little woman confronted with a shocking fact of her importance. Only instead of Sarah Connor is a certain Dani Ramos, a heroine of a new order, in whose transformation the creators are trying to show how much the idea of ​​strong female characters in the cinema has changed over the course of three decades. The motive is good, the performance is not too much: somewhere in the middle of the film “Dark Fates” under the guise of a colossal twist they give out that Dani, you see, is not the mother of the Messiah and not the Virgin Mary, but the real Jesus is. And what exactly on her shoulders, and not on some abstract descendant, lies the future of mankind.

Everything would be alright if this idea were not presented with such an aplomb: the viewer, who is simply not given a chance to come into emotional contact with the heroine, for some reason should be amazed beyond measure that the role of a woman in society is not limited to motherhood. In addition, the film cannot fully determine what is more important to it: an innovative idea or a comfortable fan service. He often pushes new heroes behind the backs of colorful oldies and at the end gives the right to the “last blow” not to Dani and not even Cyborg Grace, but to gray-bearded Schwarzenegger (he also gets the best jokes, and almost all the airliners go to the aged Sarah Connor).
