The script is ambitious with some cool ideas, but it is also sometimes confusing, doesn't explain things adequately, and has a twist that sours the film. Time travel films by their nature can be confusing, but they should still explain the events that change timelines. Terminator Genisys fails to do this.
Two roles were miscast: Kyle Reese and John Conner. Jai Courtney (Reese) and Jason Clarke (Conner) just don't seem like soldiers. They come across more like buddies that like to hang out in bars. Courtney's Reese would never have defeated the terminator in the first film. Worse, Courtney and Emilia Clarke (Sarah Conner) have absolutely no chemistry. I enjoyed Clarke's energetic and lively performance, but it did lack a toughness and severity I would've expected from this version of Sarah Conner. Schwarzenegger delivers an enjoyable performance.
Finally, something was off with the pacing or editing that caused me to never be on the edge of my seat. I never got very involved in the film.
The film is certainly better than the third and fourth installments in the series, and I hope to see another sequel, but it does not measure up to T2 or even to the original Terminator, which are two of the best written, directed, and edited action films ever made. Still, if you're a fan of the series, or if you just want to enjoy some good action and special effects, Terminator Genisys is worth seeing.
But the biggest news from WWDC wasn't announced in the keynote: You no longer need a developer account to install apps on your devices!
Biggest disappointment: no new Apple TV nor third-party apps for Apple TV. I'd love to see Apple TV turned into a game console for iOS. And why did they spend so much time on Apple Music? There's nothing there for developers.
