Review: Terminator Genisys, 2015, dir. Alan Taylor

“‘Old, not obsolete.’ These three words are repeated often throughout Terminator Genisys, Alan Taylor’s contribution to the iconic ’80s/’90s action series, and they apply perfectly to the film’s biggest name: Arnold Schwarzenegger himself, reprising his role as an unstoppable cyborg for the umpteenth time in the Terminator saga’s lifespan. If any production in the latter day of Schwarzenegger’s storied career as a big screen tough guy validates his star power, it’s this one, though don’t take that as endorsement of Terminator Genisys’s better merits. Movies can do worse than be merely watchable. For example, they can be willfully obscure and smugly self-promotional.” (Via Paste Magazine.)
