  • 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

  • For all its weaknesses, Terminator Genisys is a "Terminator" movie that feels like a "Terminator" movie, more than did "Terminator 3," not to mention the ghastly "Terminator Salvation." 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

    They should not make another one. The last one was way too dk. This one seemed to wander with the script and just never reached out and grabbed my attention. However Arnold seemed to do very well. I will not go see the next one there ever is a next one.
