  • Terminator: Genisys

    Terminator: Genisys (2015)

    Rated PG-13, 126 min. Directed by Alan Taylor. Starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Emilia Clarke, Jai Courtney, Jason Clarke, J.K. Simmons, Byung-hun Lee, Matt Smith and Dayo Okeniyi.

    Oh, Michael Biehn, where art thou? Suffice it so say that Terminator: Genisys’ Kyle Reese (Courtney) is laughably miscast in this fifth iteration of James Cameron’s original apocalyptic robot wars. Equally miscast is Jason Clarke, as the by now superheroic John Connor, the man fated to lead humanity to victory in the war against the machines. And there’s the return of Schwarzenegger in his career-defining role as the hulking Terminator. This being a highly convoluted, temporally scrambled time-travel action film, the storyline is all over the place – and it pretty much reboots the whole franchise’s history – but, what the hell, it’s quantum, baby. Chock-full of various sorts of Terminators, thuddingly dull explosions, and one of the most downright boring helicopter chases ever, Terminator: Genisys is a catastrophic misfire on nearly all counts. All I can do is paraphrase Biehn’s Kyle Reese: “Come with me if you want to yawn.” Read a full review of Terminator: Genisys.
