In this fifth installment of the Terminator franchise, we revisit many events included or alluded to in the previous films. Namely, a scene from the original 1984 Terminator is re-interpreted and turned upside down with a surprising twist. In this version of the past, three robots, including a T-1000, battle for the fate of humanity. These moments are tense and big on special effects.
The visuals are photorealistic and extremely immersing. We meet a variety of robots. Most are overcome using creative tactics with stunning composited imagery. Various versions of Schwarzenegger’s cyborg prototype are presented to us; some young and some older. CG is brilliantly used to create this illusion. We learned that the T-800’s skin ages so we accept Schwarzenegger's various looks.
Expect good character chemistry, especially when considering the different timelines we travel in. The actors do an excellent job of giving life to extraordinary characters. Genisys ties loose ends left behind by the previous films and uses them to garnish its own plot. The action sequences are, as always, the main attraction. This movie will, without a doubt, get your heart pumping!
