StorylineWhen John Connor (Jason Clarke), leader of the human resistance, sends Sgt.

Movie ReviewsTerminator Genisys is a stand-alone movie, which it has more relation with terminator 2 rather than the last terminator film (terminator salvation). The storyline that director used was rather a forth-back plot. Maybe it was somekind like "twelve monkeys". It keep the viewers guessing and exploring the ending of the movie. Those aspect were not bad at all, it gives more thrill to the film itself. My conclusion in the storyline is good, but unfortunately not original. The director rather forcing terminator genisys to becoming like the terminator 2, he gave an intense plot packed with action, but nothing new than T2.
In the other hand. Taylor using a nowadays movie formula. Giving a force drama or force sentimental scene in the middle of duration. I know people's taste nowadays like such as those formula. With force sentimental backsound, such thing like that. But it's not match for the movie itself. TG needs more than that, the storyline of the terminator franchise can be a lot more wider rather than easy predictable solution of the director and writer. I saw so many plot holes also, such as the helicopter scenes, truck scenes, etc. And the worst thing was the ending, it's like the director wants to keep arnold alive for the next franchise of terminator. If he has more courage to change those formula, i know terminator genisys will got better in critics.
From all those, i should say that this movie not bad at all. It have a good strength in it. A story which the director use to grow an emotion into arnold (robot) character were fresh and new. It's like i can feel the sadness and calamity of arnold when i saw the scene in the garage (where there are pictures drawn by arnold). That scene have a big impact to viewers. With that scene, it grows the likable- feelings into arnold character, it was a huge jump into character development. From that scene also i rate this movie better (7 or maybe higher than that if i watch twice) than most people in the world did. Because it develop a connection between characters and strengthen the storyline which arnold performed. i couldn't guess further, but i think TG have a chance to becoming the future classic (20-30 years later). Because it has a basic emotional character development in it which i seldomly see. It is about caring between human and machine.
