The return of James Cameron as producer and responsible for the story and that of Linda Hamilton (A town called Dante’s Peak) in front of the cameras is the first indication that the great objective of Terminator: Dark Destination is to recover the original foundations of This saga, one of the most profitable science fiction movies, which seemed to have been lost in their latest installments (Terminator 3, Terminator: Salvation and Terminator: Genesis).
