True Love

In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.

Movie Review: Terminator Genisys

Starring: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jason Clarke, Emilia Clarke

Directed by: Alan Taylor

BLURB: When John Connor sends Kyle Reese back to 1984 to protect Sarah Connor and safeguard the future, an unexpected turn of events alters the timeline. Now Reese must face dangerous new enemies, unlikely allies, and a new mission: To reset the future.

REVIEW:  Terminator Genisys is the 5th installment in the Terminator series and it actually is what the 3rd and 4th movies should have been. I wasn’t sure how I would like a look back at a younger Sarah Conner and Kyle Reese but I was pleasantly surprised by this one! It was hands…and actually skyscrapers better than T3 was and I liked it much better than Terminator Salvation as well. 

Emilia Clarke plays Sarah in this one and she did a pretty good job in the role. My personal favorite as the character will always be Lena Headey from The Sarah Connor Chronicles I thought she was nothing short of magnificent as Sarah. A close second but still soundly second is Linda Hamilton but Emilia did herself proud in the role which isn’t an easy one at all to fill. She also actually favors Linda Hamilton, I thought, which does make her seem rather seamless as Sarah here as well. Jason Clarke (who btw is NOT related to Emilia despite the same last names) plays Kyle Reese and he did a great job too I thought in recreating Kyle from the first movie pretty seamlessly. The highlight of this one though of course is the return of Arnold as yet another T-800 who is this time was sent to protect Sarah herself. He has actually already been with Sarah for several years by the time Kyle shows up in the movie this time. Pop’s as Sarah has lovingly nicknamed him is kind of a father figure for Sarah and the comradery between her and her Terminator protector is enduring and echos John’s relationship with the Terminator who was his protector in T2. Very well done in this one too and the image of the AI and the humans blurs for the audience once again here. 

Though Genisys does cover some ground that has been covered in the first film already...some practically scene for is not just a rehash of the first movie by a long shot either. There are several BIG developments that take place which I won’t go into what they are because to do so is a huge spoiler for many (although if you have read or seen much about the movie before hand you probably already know the biggest spoiler but I will not let it out just in case). Let’s just say there is a BIG game changer as part of the main plot to this one that has never been seen before in the Terminator world. It's a doozy and turns everything on it's ear to say the least. 

There is tons of action, adventure, yes violence…this is a Terminator movie, but there is also laughter and romance too! It’s a pretty well rounded movie all the way around and my son and I both thoroughly enjoyed it, and will be adding this one to our movie collection as soon as it’s out. Shoot the scene with Pop's trying to smile is worth the whole price of the movie by itself ROFL!!!!!!!!! Trust me awesome is the only word for it. And if anyone is a big Doctor Who fan like my son they will probably enjoy seeing Matt Smith in this one as well though he is character here is vastly different from the way we are use to seeing him! Not saying more on that either you will just have to watch it for yourself and see. I actually am looking forward to seeing it again already.

So final verdict Terminator Genisys is WELL worth the watch and actually to almost any Terminator fan should be an outright buy one for the collection too. Great addition to the franchise in my humble opinion.

 Rated PG - 13 for intense sequences of sci-fi violence and gunplay throughout, partial nudity and brief strong language 

 One naked embrace as they go through the time travel sequence but beyond that nothing but kissing. PG-13 this time around for sure.
