Terminator Genisys

Action Sci-Fi


 

John Connor sends Kyle Reese back in time to protect his mother Sarah Connor.

"Terminator Genisys" is a sequel/reboot/redux, which inspires you to track down and watch the far superior original films. Made primarily to serve the faithful fans, all the winks and nods to the previous instalments cannot overcome the lacklustre and somewhat confusing plot. While it's a thrill to see a classic cast member return as a T-800, the subdued action sequences, which rely heavily on CGI, deliver little threat when these remarkably durable robots fight one another. A franchise close to obsolete.
