This movie is like a car crash on the side of the highway that you can't help but stare at. I humorously recommend this movie to friends as an example of how to thoroughly, and undoubtedly, stop a franchise dead in its tracks - If you thought T3, and Salvation, were doing their darnedest to kill the franchise, you haven't seen anything yet.
I have not a clue what they were thinking by concocting a double time travel rigamarole that basically erases every meaningful thing that happened in the first two movies (you know, the two movies that gave anyone a reason to care about Terminator in the first place). The casting was also largely a head scratcher. It is just way too difficult to watch James Cameron's version of the leads in the first two movies only to watch them get replaced so putridly in Genisys.
For real, what a bizarre way to try to reboot the series. It actually does feel like an early 90s straight to video sci-fi experiment, but with a substantially larger budget attached to it. I can imagine the train of thought going around in the studio when they were dreaming up this turd: How do we make a Terminator movie with a 70 year-old Arnold that would kinda sorta make sense? To think that this was supposed to be the first entry in a trilogy. I don't think I'm fanboy enough to have cared about what was supposed to happen in the two movies we aren't going to get.Loading …
What a bunch of fucking nonsense this film is. I know I should temper my expectations when it comes to something like this but fuck doing that, after sitting though two hours of this movies time travel bullshit it doesn't deserve it; seriously, I have an easier time understanding the time continuity of Doctor Who then I do the stupid shit this crap spews out. Like seriously, how anyone can read the plot points of this movie out loud and not be concerned in the slightest scares me to no end, how the fuck did this get the "James Cameron seal of approval" - oh right he's too busy making Avatar 10 & and not giving a fuck about Terminator, as he swims in his pool full of money. If you haven't gotten the gist yet I didn't really like any of this, really It's better to say that I hated every fucking minute of it. This is really - and I say this without doubt in my mind - a bunch of fucking nonsense that is set to the back drop of uninspired, bland, action set pieces - in other words: typical summer blockbuster trash. I mean I feel bad for Arnold as he really tries his hardest to make this movie seem cool, when really it has the opposite effect. The movie reeks of desperation as it tries to capture anything that made the first two terminators good, with every time the movie makes, essentially, a callback coming off as "OH LOOK GUIES WE KNOW YOU LIKE THAT LINE FROM TERMINATOR 2 SO WE USED IT AGAIN, WE'RE JUST AS COOL SO PLZ LIKE US". The movie just feels so incredibly pathetic in its attempts to appeal to the audiences nostalgia and I fucking hate it. I really didn't expect much at all here, but the stupid time-travel shit really set me over the edge. Was the goal of this movie to bury the Terminator franchise even further down the hole it dug for itself after Salvation? Because it damn well succeeded as far as I'm concerned. Just let the franchise die already.Loading …
This video is freaking hilarious xDLoading …
I'm glad this movie exists. It sucks shit when you think about it, but after Salvation this is like the new Terminator 2!
I went to see this movie for two reasons, first was that i'm a huge Terminator fan and second was that i'm a huge Arnie fan. I didn't went into this movie expecting a good plot with good characters, I went in just to watch Arnie kicking ass! That was the only redeemable part of the movie, unfortunately. It starts out pretty promisingly though, the interaction between John Connor and Kyle Reese felt genuine and the world during the war looked really cool. But I knew once they started to time travel, that this horsehit of a story would go down faster than you can say "What?!".
Effects looked fake for the most part, but surprisingly I thought the set design and make up effects were decent. The performances were pretty boring, I liked Arnie and the guy who played John Connor but that's about it.
Go in wih the right expectations, and you might survive...Loading …
Few initial reviews are coming out and guess what? They aren't that very good - boy am I surprised!
17% Rotten Tomatoes
38 Metacritic score
Obviously what's out there isn't much so this isn't an indicative of what the critical reception of the film will be when it's all said and done. On the other hand, however, you don't tend to see film go from a 17% on Rotten Tomatoes to an 80% - nor do you see one go from a 38 to a 70 on Metacritic. With this knowledge in hand my guess for where the chips will fall on July 1 is around a 20%-50% for Rotten Tomato & a 30-50 Metacritic score. So really this film has the chance, in my eyes, to be either utter shit or boring summer blockbuster trash. Oh boyLoading …
