John Connor sends Kyle Reese back in time to protect Sarah Connor, but when he arrives in 1984, nothing is as he expected it to be.

I think the things I loved most about this film is that it’s not just another Terminator movie.

This movie deals a lot more with the notion of outcomes changing and affecting the timeline, which makes it a different movie from the previous four movies and although different, there are still a lot of scenes borrowed from the first movie – some big and some small but still recreating a lot of the scenes from the original 1984 film.

It’s always good to see Arnie but Emilia Clarke and Jai Courtney were pretty good additions as was J.K Simmons. The relationship between Sarah and Pops (Arnie) resembled the John Connor and The Terminator in T2.

This movie is a lot more special effects heavy but it does make for some awesome scenes and some awesome new Terminators. There was an awesome little scene in the movie that addresses Arnie’s age, which I thought was a nice little addition.

This movie isn’t as good as the first two but unquestionably a lot better than the last two.

The big bummer for me was the big reveal that was ruined in the trailer.

From the second you see John Connor, you know he is bad and after watching the movie; it would have made for such an awesome surprise!

So thanks for that Paramount!

Terminator Genisys is a fun, humorous and awesome action flick that is no doubt paving the way for more movies.

Would love to see it again in the cinemas but if I don’t get the chance, it will definitely be a day one addition to my collection.
