Terminator Genisys Movie Review

Arnold Schwarzenegger stars in Terminator Genisys

Old and Obsolete

IMDb Plot: John Connor (Jason Clarke) sends Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney) back in time to protect Sarah Connor (Emilia Clarke) but when he arrives in 1984, nothing is as he expected it to be. Also stars Arnold Schwarzenegger.

"Theoretically," Terminator Genisys stinks. Even Arnold can't rescue this convoluted retread, directed by TV savant Alan Taylor. Problem is, there's been too many John and Sarah Connors (not to mention Terminators) to keep track of, since The Terminator. Nobody seems to really die; and the story is so confusing, it requires its characters to stop everything, and explain it to each other (ad nauseam.) Arnold's too old, Jason Clarke too dull and Emilia... well, perhaps she should go back to her dragons. "This is what happens when time traveling robots try to cover up their tracks." Eight five is enough.
