Terminator Genisys

Critics 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.

When John Connor (Jason Clarke), leader of the human resistance against Skynet, sends Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney) back to 1984 to protect his mother, Sarah (Emilia Clarke), from a Terminator assassin, an unexpected turn of events creates an altered timeline. Instead of a scared waitress, Sarah is a skilled fighter and has a Terminator guardian (Arnold Schwarzenegger) by her side. Faced with unlikely allies and dangerous new enemies, Reese sets out on an unexpected new mission: reset the future.

Audience Reviews for Terminator Genisys

  • Aug 27, 2016
    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.

    Not quite as bad as i thought it would be, Terminator: Genisys brings back the nostalgia of the first two films. It even has the same old-school vibe to it. But when you get to its core, Genisys is simply a rehash of the first two masterpieces, which are so good there was no point in revisiting them.
