Judging by this weekend’s box office it looks like the Terminator won’t be back and that’s a shame. Because Terminator: Genisys was actually an excellent attempt to reboot this franchise while staying within the confines of the universe it created. It is certainly better than the third and fourth films in the series even though it has the lowest Rotten Tomatoes score of the entire franchise.
I have a reputation for geek-raging on movies for no reason–naturally I believe my reasons to be appropriate. I hated Jurassic World because it was the same story as the original and they didn’t try to do anything new. So I was less inclined to forgive the silly mistakes because they weren’t even trying. I loved Genisys because it tried to be a new story and take a familiar property in new directions–that’s bold for a franchise, especially one involving time travel. Unfortunately, even Terminator Genisys can’t avoid some time travel problems. So after the break we’ve got the top 6 mistakes made by an otherwise entertaining summer flick.
SPOILER WARNING: THE REST OF THE POST CONTAINS SPOILERS FOR TERMINATOR: GENISYS.
