Wait, this is actually R-rated? Marketing should have made a much bigger deal out of that. 

How many more times does it need to be said it's R-rated (including from filmmakers) untill you believe it?

Dark Fate was filmed with PG-13 and R scenes so that the decision could be made in post. As a result, I’m expecting this to be baseline R.

That's true to some extent. They did that for a while untill it became clear during production that they got the go ahead to go R-rated.

You know what really turned me off this movie ? Their choice to use “I’m going hunting” like this is a fast and furious spin off movie or something.

i mean seriously, if Cameron really was even 5% involved in this project that trailer would have been edited with a better music choice 

 

the music choice completely takes me out of getting excited for the trailer and thus the movie

can we stop this? We know pretty much exactly what he did and did not do, he was very explicit about it. He worked with a group of writers for a few months to map out the story and he did a few touch ups on script. He also was involved in casting. 

 

After that it's Tim Miller's movie. So no he probably didn't handpick the trailer music, but that doesn't mean he didn't play a significant role

 

Now if you don't want to watch the movie because of the trailer music... I don't know what to tell you... you do you

[Shrugs] I'm only vaguely following this film and genuinely had no idea. Not my fault the marketing's being coy about it, and I'm sure it'll come as a surprise to a lot of viewers too.

Roughly that's what it looks like as of now. I speak French so I've read them.

 

All in all definitely not the disaster some expected. The most negative ones all say it's still better than Genisys and they did like some of performances. The mixed ones are basically saying it's a fun action movie but not much else. The most positive ones say it's the first worthy success to T2 (although none will say it's better than T1 or T2 but who expected that?). Biggest complaint is probably that it's still sticking too close to the formula.

 

Worst reviews are 2/5 stars. There's actually a 5/5 review.

 

All in all pretty much what I expected from Miller and critic response. Excited to see it.

I think i'll make myself scarce for the next few days to be able to watch TDF without any preconceived notions. Always try to do that for movies i'm looking forward to, always fail lol.

So ALITA type critical reception, which is fine by me as I love that movie. 

in France that means better reviews than Black Panther and Endgame 😉

Early reactions are early reactions although the interesting thing is the Alamo special T2 + 20 minutes TDF screening was actually the full movie. I don't want to jump the gun but so far seeing nothing but praise
