Hamilton hated that part of the ending, BTW. Schwarzenegger, meanwhile, is once again the Good Terminator, but is more or less stuck reenacting T2 as a comedy, down to the individual beats of his find a biker bar and steal some clothes arrival.
This time he unwittingly steals clothes from a male stripper, see. This time his sunglasses are Elton John joke sunglasses, see. If you ever wanted to watch Arnold Schwarzenegger clock a lady with a urinal, here you go ; as for the plot, which involves the further prevention and possible inevitability of Judgment Day, the movie-to-movie narrative is now perilously frayed, this chapter at least less a continued narrative at all than a downer-ending remix.
T2: The Future War
The elements are all there: time travel, nuclear holocaust, murder robots, human resilience, dope car chases, and another blockbuster budget increasingly devoted to Schwarzenegger himself. See if you can guess. Salvation has, to its credit, the slickest and shall we say badassest action sequences outside of T2 itself; the bigger the murder robot the better, man. Her biggest worry is making rent and tuition. It is merely a matter of tracking possible futures using an exponential growth-and-decay algorithm. Oh, shut up. But the bonkers box office notwithstanding, this timeline, also, has since been mercifully deleted.

The Future War (T2, book 3) by S M Stirling
It is waiting until it is put in charge of the U. But in , Skynet — which had held a third of its missiles in reserve — unleashes a second Judgement Day p. We also see Skynet strategically deploy its nuclear missiles in the Now Comics , although in that case it was because Skynet desired to toy around with humanity. John plays chess against Ninel p.

And the resistance-versus-Skynet war is, of course, a metaphorical chess match. Many previous incarnations of the story painted the war against the machines — for all its horror — as being a clear case of good versus evil, with almost all humans on the side of the resistance. With Hamilton back, Terminator: Dark Fate serves as a direct follow-up to T2 , ignoring everything in the series since.
By all accounts, the new Terminator succeeds at recapturing the formula that once worked so well.

The film served as a capable, albeit underwhelming, end to a trilogy. After Salvation , some fans speculated that the reason Terminator Salvation fell flat was the absence of Arnold Schwarzenegger.
But Terminator Genisys proved that theory wrong, nearly killing the franchise for good with its convoluted story and wooden performances. Terminators once hunted her.
