Earlier this afternoon, I have just seen “Terminator: Genisys” and here is my review…
Plot/Synopsis: When John Connor (Jason Clarke), leader of the human resistance, sends Sgt. Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney) back to 1984 to protect Sarah Connor (Emilia Clarke) and safeguard the future, an unexpected turn of events creates a fractured timeline. Now, Sgt. Reese finds himself in a new and unfamiliar version of the past, where he is faced with unlikely allies, including the Guardian (Arnold Schwarzenegger), dangerous new enemies, and an unexpected new mission: To reset the future…
As a huge Terminator fan, I would have to say this Terminator movie was very disappointing. Even Arnold coming back to the famous character couldn’t save it. The only good thing about it was the action and Emilia Clarke who is an actress who I like. The plot was kind of silly and I think it was loaded with plot holes all over. Plus I thought the movie was badly casted for the most part. This film is neither a reboot or a remake but instead, I look at it as a continuation of “T-2: Judgement Day”. It’s just a typical Terminator movie with lots of action and special effects.
The only reason they did the aging Terminator storyline was so they can give an excuse for an aging Arnold Schwarzenegger to return. The action was fun but like I said, it was the only good thing about the film. I just wish it would be better ’cause this film was kind of a let down, in my opinion. It’s hard to make a great Terminator movie without James Cameron helming, only he can make a great Terminator movie. They can make as many Terminator movies as they want to but nothing will be better than the first two. I thought Michael Biehn played the better Kyle Reese.
The movie was just okay. It wasn’t anything special. I wish James Cameron would come back and save the Terminator franchise but he vows not to come back to them. He wants nothing to do with the series anymore which is a shame.
I’ll give the movie a score of 2 out of 5 as in “okay”.
When I saw the first teaser of “Terminator: Genisys”, I wasn’t all that impressed with it but now that the second trailer is here, I think I’m pretty much sold to the movie now. I’m looking forward to it and can’t wait. I love Emilia Clarke, big fan of hers. After her role as Daenerys in “Game of Thrones”, she’s gonna be a huge movie star. Whenever she’s done with “G.O.T.”, she’ll probably move on to movies full time.
Okay, I’m thinking about crossing off “Terminator: Genisys” as one of those movies for 2015 and might wait for rental on this one. Instead of a re-boot like they promised, it turned out to be a remake of both “The Terminator” and “T-2: Judgement Day”. Why not create a whole new story with new characters and not having anything to do with the first two films???
On top of that, nobody can play the T-1000 liquid Terminator better than Robert Patrick can. I still prefer the originals, why ruin them???
The crew behind “Terminator: Genisys” (Terminator 5) released the living one sheet. Once you enter this site, it’ll give you the living one-sheet and then it’ll direct you to a count down. Which is probably the count-down to the trailer.
Arnold confirms that he is finished filming all of his scenes for “Terminator: Genisys”, the new Terminator film that will hit theaters in July of 2015.
This should be the big summer movie and I can’t wait! I’m a huge Terminator fan and so happy that Arnold is back in the role. I’m sure Arnold’s role will be more than just a cameo. I’m sure Arnold will have a few big fight scenes.
What do you think? Do you think Arnold has what it takes to play the Terminator at this age? I’d say yes. Arnold is still doing action films doing his own stunts so I’m sure he did fine. This is a new Terminator reboot so this film will have nothing to do with the past films. A new introduction and a new beginning.
I think Arnold is still on for one more Conan film so hopefully that happens soon!
