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

Producer David Ellison approached James Cameron with the idea of an installment that serves as a direct sequel, ignoring the past three installments after admitting that Terminator Genisys (2015) fell short of the expectations. "He [Ellison] was quite honest with me about this - [Genisys] fell short of the mark and didn't really do what he had wanted it to do. So he said, 'Let's start with a blank slate and take it back to T2.' And that idea was intriguing." After much thinking, Cameron had several ideas to began with in the story's premise including: a Terminator who has no mission or purpose that blended into human society and has learned a lot over two decades; a machine that ages over time on the exterior but performs the same functions it was designed to, and a lead female action hero (Sarah) at the age of 60s that has rarely been shown before on screen.

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 »
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.
