Director: Alan Tayor
Stars: Emillia Clarke, Jason Clarke, Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Synopsis: The leader of the human resistance, John Connor sends Sgt. Kyle Reese back to the year 1984 to protect Sarah Connor and safeguard the future. On his journey, an unexpected turn of events creates a fractured timeline.
Review: John Connor ( Jason Clarke ) knows the future of his time line thanks to his mother Sarah Connor ( Emillia Clarke ). John tells Kyle Reese ( Jai Courtney ) about the true plan of the machines, time travel. The two set about to destroy the enemy time machine in order to save the future.
Emillia Clarke does well as an imitation of Sarah Connor. She could keep playing this character if the Studio continues with the Genisys story lines. I have heard that the studio have canceled future movies and I have heard that it has been reinstated with another film on the way. I really don’t know which one is true until they release a new one. We get to see CGI Arnold Schwarzenegger. The lighting on that 3d model does not match the rest of the movie at all. Arnold Schwarzenegger himself is not the guy he use to be. His character seems too human so the character development is just not there. We don’t see him learn how to become more human. I can see how a lot a people wont like his character in this film.
This film is completely unnecessary, but so are so many of these Terminator films after Judgment Day. So I guess this is supposed to be some kind of alternate time line time loop of some sort where deferent possibilities can happen in each new branch of reality, I guess? That or the studio wont let this franchise die because they have nothing else to produce worth while? Honestly I don’t know why they keep making these films. I can understand the Star Wars franchise finishing off the numbered movies from episode one to nine since George Lucas said that was how the whole story was supposed to happen but why make these films? They ruin the impact of the first two Terminator films.
The cinematography is alright. The CGI is a bit weird in some scenes. The lighting is somewhat inconsistent because there is an over reliance on the CGI lighting. The backgrounds are strange since a lot of them are not real. The wardrobe is OK. The set dressing, when its actually there in real life and not GCI, is alright. I feels like this is really nothing more than a rehash of a tired franchise that would be better off left alone. This is not a space opera like Star Wars, Star Trek, or Star Gate where you can expand the universe and visit places the main characters have never been before and uncover new threats to the galaxy. We are watching literally the same story told over and over again intentionally. I was entertained by the new Terminators, their cybernetic abilities, and the action, but this film is nothing compared to the first two movies. That being said, this film in today’s world is middle of the road. The film is an alright watch.
