Terminator Genisys Blu-ray Review | The Reel Roundup

TRR: When Arnold Schwarzenegger first uttered those three little words — "I'll be back" — in James Cameron's The Terminator, no one could've possibly imagined that the phrase would still be ringing true three decades later. Yet, here we are; it's 2015, and despite the diminishing returns provided by the last two sequels, the franchise is back for a fifth instalment. Terminator Genisys is a movie that rewrites the mythology of the entire Terminator franchise, one in which resistance leader John Connor (Jason Clarke) sends his top soldier, Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney), back in time to protect his mother, Sarah (Emilia Clarke). Only it's not the 1984 of James Cameron's tech-noir original that Kyle finds himself in, but an alternate timeline where Sarah and her guardian T-800 (Schwarzenegger) are already thirsting to take on Skynet. Delivering a decent amount of fun and serving up a ton of homages to the first two Terminator films, the movie also provides Schwarzenegger with ample opportunity to poke a little fun at his own aging action hero persona. The result is one of the more enjoyable Summer blockbusters of the year, and it's definitely worth seeing again on Blu-ray.
