Terminator Genisys (2015)

US 126m, Colour
Director: Alan Taylor; Cast: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jason Clarke, Emilia Clarke, Jai Courtney, J.K. Simmons, Dayo Okeniyi, Matt Smith, Courtney B. Vance, Lee Byung-hun

T5As a mash-up of the previous Terminator films, Genisys employs Arnold in an alternate timeline as an aging Terminator who was reprogrammed to protect Sarah Conner. Playing with the plots from the previous films, particularly the original Terminator (1984) and T2 (1991), this fifth installment is a complete rewriting of the Terminator story. Less than the sum of its parts, Genisys is a confusing and unoriginal action film that was just good enough to hold my attention on board an economy class Air Canada flight (Klaus Ming October 2015).

    Well, I saw (most of) it this weekend on a flight from Beijing to Moscow. I missed the last 20 minutes of it, but really, I did not miss it.
