Movie Reviews: 'Terminator Genisys'

Terminator Genisys (Review)
By Dylan Brown


Terminator Genisys is the ultimate exploitation of one of the greatest movie franchises of all time and is the perfect example of studio greed!

Terminator Genisys stars Emilia Clarke, Jason Clarke, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jai Courtney, and J.K. Simmons in the sequel that nobody wanted.  First thing I'll say is don’t go see this movie, if you support these types of films, we will just get more of the same crap, but let's be positive for a minute. The acting is phenomenal and I never thought that Arnold Schwarzenegger would be the highlight of the movie but he is!  Jason Clarke and Emilia Clarke are also very good in their roles, I'm glad to see that Emilia Clarke is getting more films, I just wish it was better material.  The special effects are also quite good and the action is also very well choreographed. 

That is where the positives end, the script for this movie is worse than a script written for a high school play!  Most of the actors in this film do a very good job with what they are given, but there is one role in this film that was just terribly miss cast!  The role of Kyle Reese played by Jai Courtney is just so awful and it’s a shame because his acting drags down everyone else’s performances, he just takes you out of the movie.  How the actor the casting director looked at Jai Courtney and said yes!  “That is our new Kyle Reese” I will never understand!  The editing is also very poorly done some shots go on much longer than they should and at times it is quite distracting. 

Overall this movie was not nearly as bad as I thought it was going to be, I'm going to give Terminator Genisys a 2/5 Stars.  Please don't waste your money on this movie It’s just lazy and has the stink of being rushed.
