Terminator: Genisys

It was an interesting idea to twist the events of the first two movies. Too bad hardly any of it was understandable as the movie piled on one twist after another.

Premise and Plot

– Arnold Schwarzenegger as the original Terminator (T-800) befriended Sarah Connor when she was a little girl. That wasn’t a twist, but a whole new addition to the mythology that was treated as an afterthought.

– The movie bothered to replicate a young Ahnold as he looked in the 1984 original, but did not bother to replicate Robert Patrick as the T-1000 and instead used an Asian actor who looked nothing like Patrick.

– Too many dates made it hard to follow them- 1973, 1984, ’83, ’97, 2017, 2029…

– Emilia Clarke as Sarah Connor in 1984 looked like a teenager and Linda Hamilton in the original looked like she was in her late 20s.

Now I’m tired of writing about this and probably didn’t even mention the key problems. Basically, the movie was too damn confusing and I didn’t even know who was doing what and why.
