Terminator Genisys starts out well enough. It’s the future, and the war against the machines that we’ve been hearing about for the last four decades is on the verge of closure. We get to see a moment in the franchise that was often talked about, but until now, never shown on screen. In a last-ditch attempt, the machines send one of their own back in time to kill Sarah Connor in 1984. The humans respond by sending one of their own. Genisys then becomes a rehash for a little while of the original film before doing its own thing. For the sake of nostalgia, those few minutes and everything leading up to them are interesting and exciting to watch. Then, everything goes bottoms up in an ever-increasing uncontrollable chain reaction of stupidity.
