  • Terminator Genisys fires on all action cylinders when director Alan Taylor (Thor: The Dark World) follows the model James Cameron set in the first two films, still the glory of the series. show more

  • What could anyone have said of the finished film except that it was finished? Terminator Genisys plays like the worst of all outcomes. show more

  • Terminator Genisys is a reasonably entertaining and niftily executed sci-fi action-thriller, and yet its ingenuity and craftsmanship are all in service of justifying its existence, resulting in a sequel that can be appreciated for its cleverness but otherwise regarded with a certain amount of ambivalence. show more

    A must see for all Terminator fans of the first three. Complex and well written script. Great recreations of parts of 1984 Terminator scenes. Baddass action and Arnold was at the top of his game. Go and enjoy!
