Release Date: July 1, 2015
Director: Alan Taylor
John Conner sends Kyle Reese back in time, to the year 1984, to protect Sarah Conner. He quickly finds out that her timeline has already been changed.
Terminator: Genisys is an entertaining movie. It’s a fine way to kill a couple of hours. It’s not, however, a good movie. But it does do a handful of things well. There’s plenty of action, explosions and robots! If that’s what you’re expecting from Teminator: Genisys, then you’ll be pleased. The movie delivers on those items very well.
It seems as though Terminator: Genisys changes the timeline so that everything from the first two Terminator movies never happened. Those are two great movies. This is not. If we can remove anything from the Terminator timeline, it should definitely be this movie’s existence.
My initial impression is that the actors portraying John Conner and Kyle Reese don’t fit in at all with who we know these characters to be. It’s off putting from the start. They may not be bad actors but they just don’t fit. Arnold Schwarzenegger, however, fits pretty well despite being so much older now.« « Trainwreck | Fantastic Four » »
