So, a high-budget action movie these days STILL has super-high-tech machines and weapons that miss their target when shooting. Gee, get your money back guys. This one also has an AWFUL time-travel "plot". At least it doesn't have people with leotards and masks punching each other. I mean, it does have punching, but no leotards. Whew.
Like most reboots it suffers from Callbackitis but they were at least creative with the retcon work-around. It was convoluted, time-wimey action schlock and it suffered from a few too many Deus Ex Machina moments but it was entertaining enough one time through. Jason Clarke was a... less than inspired choice though. And seriously, how are you gonna bring back Arnie but not Robert Patrick and Joe Morton!?
Schwarzenegger's back! I actually like Terminator 3, but I don't begrudge Genisys for going ahead and ignoring its implications. My issue is that unlike T1, T2, and T3, while I enjoyed Genisys, I probably won't bother to ever rewatch it - for what's essentially the third time Hollywood has tried to make a sequel equal to Cameron's films, it's a (slightly) messy retread that doesn't stand up well enough on its own.
Film très décevant. Le jeu des acteurs n'est pas intéressant (surtout Jai Courtney jouant un Kyle Reese peu efficace...) ; effets spéciaux exagérés et parfois plutôt ratés ; histoire (surtout le voyage dans le temps) beaucoup trop compliquée, avec des éléments de scénario n'étant pas du tout expliqué (et comme il n'y aura sûrement pas de suite, on ne le saura jamais!) ; etc. Un peu meilleur que T3, mais sans plus.
Se una cosa si può dire in difesa del film di Alan Taylor, è che la scelta di puntare sull'azione e sulla caciara risulta quantomeno rispettosa nei confronti dei capitoli classici della serie. Tanto quelli erano cupi, quanto questo è fracassone e - a suo modo - divertente. Per il resto rimane un pasticcio di prima categoria (complice anche uno script a base di linee temporali e paradossi davvero frastornante).
5/10 - Looks like grandpa-bot is better at defending Khaleesi than her dragons. Unfortunately, this movie is 50% nostalgia (not all bad), and 50% CGI-heavy fight scenes (eeeehh...). Not without its moments, and certainly not boring, it was just...unnecessary, redundant, and rather lacking in personality. Emilia Clarke's lips are charming though.
Not without decent ideas, but fuck, if eight brain damaged, psychotic, paranoid schizophrenics sat down and actually tried their damndest to write the most convoluted and ridiculous plot of all time, it still wouldn't come close to this. The exposition is laid on so brutally thick Nolan would be shaking his head, and the whole thing becomes a tepid chore. Waste of potential, waste of time.
"Terminator: Genisys" suffers from an overload of ideas, but one of them - which sees the son of Miles Dyson inadvertently creating Skynet by repurposing CyberDyne as a hip, San Francisco tech start-up - is actually pretty great. The film also moves along at a steady clip and boasts a number of well-staged action sequences, meaning "Genisys" is about as inoffensive as "Terminator" sequels get these days.
