Podcast Review: ‘Terminator Genisys’
Blockbuster season continues with the surprisingly solid and enjoyable Terminator Genisys. Playing out in an almost Star Trek revitalization of the action/sci-fi classics, Genisys introduces us to a world where Sarah Connor (Emilia Clarke) is prepared and aware of her future, where John Connor (Jason Clarke) has a new destiny, and SkyNet is once again the evil mechanical catalyst for the whole story. With some impressive special effects, and regardless of lingering doubts leading into seeing it, Genisys manages to surprise with how enjoyable it actually is, even with the lack of character dimension and sequel set up only seen after the fact. Check out our review of the film in our latest podcast.
Terminator Genisys stars Arnold Schwarzenegger, Emilia Clarke, Jason Clarke, Jai Courtney, J.K. Simmons, and Matt Smith, and is directed by Alan Taylor.(2.5 / 5)
