Linda Hamilton is the main character of that movie and she is by no means a weak damsel in distress. She is emotional and even hysterical at first but that is more to do with the fact that her life is torn from underneath her by a killer robot assassin from the future. An event that Im sure would test every person bar the most paranoid of people.
Anyway, this whole video series is a bit laughable. Trying to apply feminist theory to a medium whose stories are usually well lower in priority than a lot of the other parts of its art is a bit much. If characters are one dimensional, than that just reflects poorly on the author of the story rather than any supposable bias they may have against women as a whole. A better look would be if you play a game as a female character and the gameplay is altered to reflect a supposed limitation of the female form.
