Terminator Genisys Movie Review


The soul reason why I keep watching this movie is because I want to see the series end.

Overall there has been five entries into the series, with two more on the way, and one terrible TV show in my opinion. Honestly it could have ended with the the third one, but you know how Hollywood gets when they get a hold of a good concept. 

The time that lapses between the first two films is seven years, that's a long time to make a sequel to a hit movie that you know was going to make a sequel to. If they would have made the third one around 1998, and convinced James Cameron to come in to end the series the way it should have ended, then we would probably be talking about a reboot with better CGI & special effects. But instead we're talking about yet another movie that confuses the masses in terms of story line continuity and development, and just making this stale and cheesy. We are now subjugated to yet another movie where Arnold is reduced to a role where he has definitely outgrown, Emilia's blank big eyed blank stares, and Jai Courtney's lack luster acting. All of these actors are better than this movie, it's not there fault that it should've never been made, it's time to put it to rest.

For the record I was a fan of Terminator Salvation for the most part. It was in line for the more grittier versions of our beloved movies that were being made in the sense that it's suppose to be a rated R movie, (ahem, RoboCop), and it was teetering that for awhile before leveling out. People didn't like the re-imagining of the movie of sorts and wanted the more family friendly version, well folks you got what you wanted, and it sucked more than Rise of The Machines.

I hope you're happy.

But the funny thing is that I'm going to continue to waste my time on the next two installments simply because I want to see how it ends. That's what most die hard fans of the series and people with variations of ADHD like me want to see. But for the most part, if you're someone coming here to see whether or not to check out this movie, then I'll tell you straight up, please don't. You can wait til this movie comes out to the dollar theater or even Netflix where you don't really have to pay any kind of money or use your gas to go see it.

I know I'm being harsh, but cheesy movies are now a non factor, or never was really a factor, but point being is that this is a bonafide waste of money and it could've done way better given the proper motivation and cast. I just hope when they put this series to out to pasture that it will at least go out with some kind of dignity, or Skynet just kills everyone, that would be cool too.

Did you go see this movie reluctantly as I did? If so, what were your thoughts on it? Leave it in the comments below. 

Until next time guys.
