Sure, perhaps "Terminator 3: Rise of The Machines" and "Terminator Salvation" may have not lived up to expectations, but they were still good ....To me --- It's like Pizza and Sex, no such thing as bad pizza (even when it IS bad).....
For me "Terminator: Genisys", was a return to the FUN of the original "Terminator" and "Terminator 2: Judgement Day"!! ....HEY!, Arnie's Baaaaccckk! --- How can you go wrong??? I saw it in the theater, and just recently re-watched "Terminator" and "T2", and "Genisys", back-to-back......
They all held up, surprisingly well, and "Genisys" fit right in! The Timey-Wimey twists and reset of the Future are great - and what do you expect with a Time Lord (Matt Smith) in the cast! ...For the complainers, time travel and timey-wimey is what "Terminator" is about! They handled the "aging Arnie" very well .....and what a GREAT way to Re-Boot the Series, and breath new life into it! ...MUCH BETTER than just doing a remake-reboot (like we've seen too much of with "Spiderman", "Superman", etc.), more Clever, and more in keeping with the "theme" of "Terminator"!
At the time of this Review, "Terminator 6 and 7" are "on hold" and the continuation of the Series is "iffy" ....But I'd like to see the "questions" from "Genisys" answered, see Arnie again in this role, and I am ready for more "Terminator"......!!
She looked heavy. All she has to do is walk fast every day.
He looked like a boring-nobody with that haircut. Looked way better in Spartacus.
Arnold looked good.
That ridiculous title is just too much to appreciate any of the movie really.
Why should I be the one to educate you as to why that title is so wrong?
Whatever pretty much sums it up.
As a fan of subtlety, my favorite character was Alex (Doctor Who's Matt Smith), basically Lancelot to John Conner's (Jason Clarke) King Author. Taking the role of Galahad is Kyle Reese (Suicide Squad's Jai Courtney), whom is oft confused protagonist. Lee Byung-hun's terminator had a charisma unexpected, allowing him to serve both as Rabbit and Beast of Caerbannog (sadly there is no Holy Hand Grenade to help the knights this time).
Jokes aside, the way time travel works in this movie is quite simply that all time travel in the interceding years is valid, as is later time travel to deal with your success or failure... We get to see more or less a final iteration, which is a crazy hot mess, but a fun one!
There is a decent number of special features,too.
It's quite long enough for me.
And all the bonus features have subtitles available.

Top international reviews
The story isn't bad and while the laws of physics are there to be broken I think early in the film the police car taking a lot of fire ought to have at least slowed down let alone ground to a halt. Typical Hollywood is that no-one tries to shoot at its tyres - a terminator would have known that?
That police car incident aside the film moves along at a reasonable pace and has good surround sound with enough noise in the back speakers to make you sit up if you weren't already. Yes, the slugging it out fight sequences are slightly on the long side but not overdone like some action films of late.
Does the film make sense? Well no it doesn't because it's a time travel film and it's in a series of loops and paradoxes - sit back and enjoy the film and don't analyse the story line after watching it.
What I disliked the most - Jason Clarke/John Connor - a less appealing actor I can't imagine.
Much like the title, the story makes no sense. Kyle is first sent back to 1984 so that both ‘The Terminator’ and ‘T2’ can be recreated with modern lifeless special effects. Scenes, such as the liquid T-1000 hunting down the protagonists, are presented again with no real reason other than to leech off of nostalgia. Except the constant barrage of narration, characterless personalities and chaotic splurge of visuals unsurprisingly hold no levity in comparison to the originals. The entire first half of Genisys is filled with this requirement for nostalgia and remained utterly pointless throughout, reminding you to watch the earlier films instead.
Then over the halfway mark, Kyle and Sarah are sent forward in time to 2017, which commences Genisys’ own story arc for the franchise. Unfortunately though, too late. Attentive hold has dissipated, leaving you wondering “why the hell is JK Simmons in this?” instead of being invested in the plot. Frustrating really, as the last forty minutes were surprisingly enjoyable. The visual effects were implemented well, sublime integration of sound mixing and shockingly developed an emotional attachment to the “old” terminator. I know right! Arnie’s awkward smiling actually paid off!
In contrast though, Courtney and “J” Clarke, whom both are renowned for monotonous performances, were emotionless. More emotionless than a frickin’ cyborg nosediving through helicopters and stuff! Poignant moments such as Kyle discovering that John is his son, should’ve exhumed a palpable connection. Alas, no chemistry was present. The same can be said for Courtney and “E” Clarke. The latter gave everything she could to elevate the script and emotionality of any scene, cementing herself as a highlight. The former? Nothing. Dead on arrival. Looks like a beefcake, smells like one too.
Genisys is subjectively better than the bleak cloud of depression that is ‘Salvation’, but that’s like comparing a digital watch to an analogue watch. Both perform the same task, yet one will acquire a personal preference. And yes, I just used a watch analogy to sum up this review.
I wish they could have come up with something original for the story, but then why bother when it's guaranteed to make a buck at the cinema any way because its got Terminator in the title.
