Terminator Genisys (2015)
Critic Consensus: Mired in its muddled mythology, Terminator: Genisys is a lurching retread that lacks the thematic depth, conceptual intelligence, or visual thrills that launched this once-mighty franchise.

Critic Reviews for Terminator Genisys
Part of what makes Terminator Genisys so pitiful as an evening out is that all the actors do over and over again is tell us why they're in a particular scene and why the movie exists.
Of course the special effects are more impressive than ever. But nearly every curveball offered up in this new parallel-universe version of the Terminator world isn't as interesting or as original as the timeline we loved in the first place.
Terminator: Genisys, however, has none of the stakes, and none of the moral preoccupations, of its predecessors.
"Terminator Genisys" is the first fully worthy successor to Cameron's original films and it shows Arnold may be old, but he's not obsolete.
Screenwriters Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier pile on so many pulpy sci-fi conceits -- involving time travel, alternate realities, and the end of civilization -- that you might be carried along by the batty excess.
Audience Reviews for Terminator Genisys
The beginning is actually quite strong and promising. You can blame the film for trying to check as many boxes for the fans as possible and to get lost in the complexity of the time travel paradoxes. But the action is great, there a few hilarious moments and the result is thoroughly entertaining. Sure, some decisions do not seem to be in favor of the franchise history (and were spoiled in trailers and posters at that), but it's certainly not worse a stain on it than anything that came after the masterpiece that was T2. I expected much worse.
This dreadful sequel has an ambitious premise but tries so hard to be intricate and surprising that it only grows more and more stupid with a horrible dialogue full of exposition, laughable plot incoherencies, awful attempts at humor and brainless action scenes that never seem to end.
While it's good to see Schwarzenegger back in his signature role, "Genisys" is senseless. There's really no compelling reason to rewrite the Terminator history and "Genisys" does little to convince you that there is. This reboot feels a bit disparate and is quite unnecessary.
