Paramount Pictures released their new action/thriller flick, “Terminator Genisys,” into theaters this past Wednesday, July 1st, and all the reviews are in from the top movie critics in the business.

The movie stars: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Byung-hun Lee, Courtney B. Vance, Dayo Okeniyi, Emilia Clarke, J.K. Simmons, Jai Courtney, Jason Clarke and Matt Smith. We’ve added blurbs from a couple of the critics,below.
Peter Travers at Rolling Stone, gave it a 75 score, saying: “Terminator Genisys fires on all action cylinders when director Alan Taylor (Thor: The Dark World) follows the model James Cameron set in the first two films, still the glory of the series.”
Michael O’Sullivan at the Washington Post, gave it a 63 score. He said: “Genisys goes back to what made the franchise work in the first place: not the machine inside the man, but vice versa.”
Christy Lemire at the RogerEbert.com, gave it a 50 grade, stating: “Schwarzenegger has turned into your elderly uncle, dancing like a goofball at your wedding after a couple glasses of champagne. He knows he’s being silly, and he knows that you know, and that alone is supposed to be good for a laugh. But it’s not. It’s just sad. He has essentially become McBain.”
Mick LaSalle from the San Francisco Chronicle, gave it a 50 score. He said: “For all its weaknesses, Terminator Genisys is a “Terminator” movie that feels like a “Terminator” movie, more than did “Terminator 3,” not to mention the ghastly “Terminator Salvation.”
Richard Roeper over at the Chicago Sun-Times, gave it a 50 grade. He stated: “The best thing in the movie is Schwarzenegger, who delivers the Guardian’s lines with perfect timing and creates an empathetic character, because as we know, nearly all the best movie robots somehow become just a little bit human as time goes on.”
Ty Burr from the Boston Globe, gave it a 50 score, saying: “”I’ll be back,” the man said, and he kept the promise, but I’m not sure we wanted him back like this.”Read More..>>
