2029. The war between humans and machines is coming to an end. Resistance, led by John Connor (Jason Clarke) is preparing the final blow that will bring Skynet to its knees. The machines have not said their final word. They use a Time Displacement Equipment (TDE) to sent back in time, in 1984, a Terminator who will kill Sarah Connor (Emilia Clarke) before she even gives birth to the leader of Resistance. Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney) volunteers to travel back in time and stop the Terminator. When he is gone, John is attacked by a T-3000, the most advanced Terminator ever.

In 1984, Sarah is waiting for Kyle and saves his life from a T-1000 (Byung-Hun Lee). She bares no similarities with the fragile and weak girl he would have saved. Next to her stands the Guardian (Arnold Schwarzenegger), a T-800 Terminator model! Sarah and the Guardian, not only saved Kyle, but also destroyed the T-800 that was sent to kill her.

Terminator Genisys 2015History has changed. Skynet had sent a T-1000 in 1973, to kill Sarah and her parents. At the last moment, the Guardian appeared – a Terminator that was reprogrammed by the Resistance and sent back in time. Since then, Guardian takes care of Sarah and prepares her for the creation of the Resistance, and she calls him “Pops“.

Kyle is now in an unknown timeline. Yet, he has a very crucial information for Sarah: Judgement Day, the birthday of Skynet, is October 10, 2017. Of course, they are not going to stand idle for three decades. Guardian knows how to build a TDE, and with their own time machine they can travel to 2017 and destroy Skynet on its genesys. Genisys is also the name of the 2017 software, that will unite in a form of cloud computing over a billion computers, smart phones and other devices, creating this way the Skynet in this timeline. But the biggest problem they have to face is John Connor, who is now a T-3000!

Our impressions and movie review:
“Terminator Genisys” is a reboot of the famous film series and this is a great movie. Although “Genisys” is the fifth film, you will hear many people argue that this one is the true sequel to “Terminator” and “Terminator 2: Judgement Day” – you know that “T3: Rise of the Machines” and “T4: Salvation” were rather sloppy. The screenplay, written by Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier, is very good and it uses elements from the first two films. Some scenes have been shot almost the same, while other elements of the T1 and T2 are being revisited with a twist! Alan Taylor directs follows the footsteps of James Cameron, and he achieves really good results.

Jason Clarke embodies very well John Connor, both as a leader of the Resistance and – then – as the ultimate Terminator. Emilia Clarke, known as Daenerys in Game of Thrones, gives a great performance as the bold Sarah Connor. Jai Courtney is not bad, but we would prefer another actor in Kyle Reese’s shoes. J.K. Simmons is enjoyable as always. He plays a small comic part: a detective who saw the Terminators back in 1984, and everyone think he is crazy. Dr Who Matt Smith has a small part as well, but crucial to the story. We will not tell you what he does, because who ever reveals this before you see the movie, is not a good friend 😉 Byung-hun Lee is convincing as T-1000, yet we missed good old Robert Patrick. We left the best for last: Arnold Schwarzenegger is amazing!

“Terminator Genisys” will be released in USA theaters on July 1st. This is the only 2015 film that can compete Mad Max: Fury Road. You will enjoy Genisys whether you are a sci-fi fan or not. As James Cameron said: “if you like the (old) Terminator movies, you will love the new film“.
