Terminator Dark Fate - a hero with ME like profile (spoilers)


Senior Member
Just finished watching Terminator: Dark Fate, and apart from the rediculousneas of it all something really stood out to me: Grace the augmented human, sent back to protect Dani, crashes after exertion due to her “metabolic profile”. Yes of course she recovers faster than I could ever wish for but it made me realise that I am strong and I am a hero. I have to be to deal with this shit. I hope others can find enjoyment from feeling represented a little in this film. Oh and maybe have a little laugh when they all go round to Arnies for a beer. Peace and love to all of you coping with this life. Xx
