Terminator 2: Judgment Day is one of the greatest action films ever made. Maybe the best. The 1991 blockbuster set new standards in computer effects with the iconic liquid T-1000 while still hitting audiences with gritty, explosive practical effects. Unfortunately, Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines and Terminator: Salvation both failed to recapture fans' hearts thanks to a combination of cheesy jokes, mishandled story twists, and poor casting decisions. Terminator: Genisys carries on the series' tradition of disappointing sequels, bringing us to a point in time where there are arguably more bad Terminator films than good ones. Brief sprints of gleeful fan service are suffocated by trite dialogue, jarring tone shifts, and more.
