    There's only so much even Hamilton and Davis can do with such one-note characters (though Hamilton, at least, seems like she's having a ton of fun), and Dark Fate doesn't seem especially interested in seeing them as anything more.

    I did appreciate the power of women in this film, but even more enjoyable was the Terminator's evolution and role.
