A young female Mexican worker, Dani Ramos, is hunted down by a virtually indestructible terminator from the future called a REV-9. However, she is protected by an enhanced human named Grace who is also from the future. They flee from the unstoppable terminator and out of the blue Sarah Connor helps them on the road. All three head to Laredo, Texas, where Grace has the coordinates of a possible support and where they meet a T-800 who is living in an isolated location with his family. The group teams up to try to destroy the REV-9.Written by

In the early phase of the development, director Tim Miller invited a group of sci-fi writers to brainstorm about ideas for the movie. The group included Greg Bear, Neal Stephenson, Neil Asher, Warren Ellis and Joe Abercrombie. Abercrombie came up the idea of a human soldier who is surgically enhanced to be stronger, but requires a lot of medication to deal with these enhancements, which would later develop into Grace (Mackenzie Davis).

In one scene, the T800 is seen with a dog cuddling up next to him. In the first two Terminator films it is established that dogs bark incessantly and become agitated when a Terminator is present, hence the reason why they are used to help humans in detecting them. However, in this movie the scene is used to suggest that the T800 has changed and is no longer the same machine it once was. In addition, if the dog was raised around a terminator there is no reason it would not be used to being around one. See more »
It's like a giant strobe light burning right through my eyes. Somehow I can still see. Children look like burnt paper... black... not moving. And then the blast wave hits them. And then they fly apart like leaves.
Dreams of the end of the world are very common.

The opening logos have VHS fuzz over them. In addition, the Paramount Pictures and 20th Century Fox logos briefly flash their versions from 1995. See more »
In India, the film received a U/A (equivalent to the PG-13 rating) after some nudity was cut. A disclaimer requesting viewer discretion during the violent scenes that "can be disturbing to watch" was also added. See more »

Confusing with a dolop of nothing new to the plot
The guns, the explosions and the fast paced fight scenes are all fine but considering that this one a direct sequel to the judgement day doesn't give me the food for thoughts I was looking for which I got from Terminator 1 & 2.
This is almost like Terminator salvation with a slightly different plot twist with the Rev 9 popping up now and then. This is especially disappointing for the fact that James Cameron is at the helm of it. Terminator series is officially terminated after this one.
