Terminator Genisys 2015
So here we are with the 5th Terminator-movie. Once again without James Cameron behing the wheel as director. This time it’s Alan Taylor, known for one of the worst Marvel-movies Thor: The Dark World (2013). This movie creates a completely new timeline for the franschise and basically erases the first two original movies. I’m not to happy for that, since the first two are considered movie-classics. What we get is a bland Jai Courtney a descent Sarah Connor role from Emilie Clarke, a bad-guy John Connor which they managed to spoil in the trailers and finally after the absence from one movie; Arnold Schwarzenegger. Arnold manages to save this movie with some funny new one liners and his everlasting charisma. He is definitely the best part of the movie! The effects are ok but I feel that the movie depended a little too much on the effects to be entertaining. Still it’s far better than Terminator Salvation (2009) and Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines (2003). Most of the Action-scenes are quite entertaining but some manages to seem a little boring. A really entertaining fight between old-Arnold and young-Arnold at the beginnning. Overall a descent Terminator-sequel.
When Cameron gets the rights for “Terminator” back in 2019, maybe then we will get a really good Terminator sequel on pair with the classic T2.
