'Terminator Genisys' Early Reviews: We Find Out If The Film Is Any Good?

By Matt O'Bryant

What's up guys and gals,

Ok, so we have some early reviews popping up online for the highly anticipated 5th installment in the Terminater franchise!

Official Synopsis:

When John Connor (Jason Clarke), leader of the human resistance, sends Sgt. Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney) back to 1984 to protect Sarah Connor (Emilia Clarke) and safeguard the future, an unexpected turn of events creates a fractured timeline. Now, Sgt. Reese finds himself in a new and unfamiliar version of the past, where he is faced with unlikely allies, including the Guardian (Arnold Schwarzenegger), dangerous new enemies, and an unexpected new mission: To reset the future.


Below I've listed some little snip-bits from some of the Nations Top Critics who have seen the film:


The stunts and CGI and attendant action scenes are all simply fine; there’s nothing here with the stark simple power of “The Terminator” or the strong-but-strange brilliant inventions of “Terminator 2.” Instead, it’s all less-than-spectacular “spectacle” and plot convolutions twisting around themselves at the whim of the summer’s least interesting killer artificial intelligence… The least inspiring thing about “Terminator Genisys” is how it’s a fifth film that doesn’t improve or expand on the prior four so much as it’s meant to clearly set up Part Six, Part Seven and possibly even more.
— The Wrap- James Rocchi
[Terminator Genisys] will serve as a good litmus of how keen the public is to see basically the same old thing in a new (but very similar) bottle… The film just lumbers along, often tediously; there’s no sense that the scenario has been carefully kneaded, structured and shaped by attentive dramatists. Visually, we’ve seen these images, or many like them, so many times before, and the score accentuates the retread feel with its monotonous thudding.
— THR-Todd McCarthy
[Termiantor Genisys is a] nervy, silly, almost admirably misguided attempt to give the 31-year-old franchise a massive cybernetic facelift… [And] while online fans have already voiced their displeasure, the movie’s willingness to veer crazily off-course feels less objectionable than the monotony and sense of self-parody that kick in long before the whimper of a finish.
— Variety-Justin Chang
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.
— Screen Daily-Tim Grierson
Easily the 3rd best in franchise” and it “feels like it’s in the Cameron universe
— Collider's Steve 'Frosty' Weintraub
