  • Peter Travers

    Terminator Genisys fires on all action cylinders when director Alan Taylor (Thor: The Dark World) follows the model James Cameron set in the first two films, still the glory of the series.

  • James Berardinelli

    The best one-liners, like the best fight scenes, are reserved for Schwarzenegger. It's too soon to tell whether Terminator Genisys will have a catch phrase like "I'll be back" or "Hasta la vista, baby" but there are several candidates. Much of the film's comedy results from The Terminator's failed attempts to emulate human behavior.

  • John Semley

    What’s remarkable is that this fifth Terminator is worthwhile precisely because of its franchise cash-in excessiveness. It’s at once an eminently satisfying actioner, jackknifing tractor-trailers and vertiginous helicopter chases and all, as it is a passably thought-provoking comment on memory – headily engaging with the very nostalgia it intends to evoke.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • A.A. Dowd

    This new Terminator, the first since the dreadfully dreary and Arnold-less "Salvation," is engineered to feel at once eerily familiar and raise-the-stakes fresh.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Michael O'Sullivan

    Genisys goes back to what made the franchise work in the first place: not the machine inside the man, but vice versa.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • James Mottram

    Fresh cast, fresh ideas and full-on action gives Taylor’s reboot momentum, even if an overloaded script threatens to topple it at times. Doesn’t touch Cameron’s two movies, of course.

    Total Film Full Review
  • Kerry Lengel

    Genisys is more entertaining than the last two installments, although it's not nearly as good as the first two.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Tim Grierson

    Terminator Genisys is a reasonably entertaining and niftily executed sci-fi action-thriller, and yet its ingenuity and craftsmanship are all in service of justifying its existence, resulting in a sequel that can be appreciated for its cleverness but otherwise regarded with a certain amount of ambivalence.

    Screen International Full Review
  • Marc Mohan

    Terminator: Genisys isn't so much a sequel or a reboot but a piece of fan fiction come to ludicrous, big-budget life. Even for an unnecessary entry in a series of movies about indestructible time-traveling robots and genocidal computer networks, it's pretty silly.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Andrew O'Hehir

    The ultra-tangled plotline of Terminator Genisys makes the rhythm of the action beats especially weird; we see the entire world nuked into rubble by the machine overlords really early in the movie, which makes it hard to get excited about a few buildings falling down later on. Full Review
  • Christy Lemire

    Schwarzenegger has turned into your elderly uncle, dancing like a goofball at your wedding after a couple glasses of champagne. He knows he’s being silly, and he knows that you know, and that alone is supposed to be good for a laugh. But it’s not. It’s just sad. He has essentially become McBain. Full Review
  • Joe Williams

    This mash-up movie is like a greatest-hits collection for obsessive collectors. On its own terms, Terminator Genisys makes virtually no sense.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    For all its weaknesses, Terminator Genisys is a "Terminator" movie that feels like a "Terminator" movie, more than did "Terminator 3," not to mention the ghastly "Terminator Salvation."

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Richard Roeper

    The best thing in the movie is Schwarzenegger, who delivers the Guardian’s lines with perfect timing and creates an empathetic character, because as we know, nearly all the best movie robots somehow become just a little bit human as time goes on.

  • Ty Burr

    "I'll be back," the man said, and he kept the promise, but I'm not sure we wanted him back like this.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Sara Stewart

    [JK Simmons] provides a little comic relief, and sums up my feelings on this whole outing: “Goddamn time-travelin’ robots!”

    New York Post Full Review
  • Rodrigo Perez

    The fifth installment of the Terminator series cannot overcome the weight of its convoluted time travel leaps, its strained attempts at injecting twists everywhere, a clunky opening, and a painfully clumsy finish.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    Someone describes the T-800 as "nothing but a relic from a deleted timeline." Too harsh to lay on Schwarzenegger yet, but certainly it applies to the Terminator franchise.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    Schwarzenegger, weathered and ironic, strides through the film with old-fashioned authority. Except for Clarke, who walks an ambiguous line between heroism and sinister monomania, only Big Arnie leaves the slightest impression after the credits roll.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • Chris Nashawaty

    The story isn’t just confusing, it’s a betrayal to anyone who’s invested brain cells in the Terminatorverse over the past 31 years.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • James Luxford

    Terminator Genisys' ambition overrides sense and depth in the pursuit of a new direction, and then unwittingly proves how little life there is left in this franchise.

    CineVue Full Review
  • Dan Jolin

    Director Alan Taylor handles the big action adeptly as he did in Thor The Dark World, but the script is an ever-decreasing cycle of tool-ups, chase sequences and daft monologues.

    Empire Full Review
  • Robbie Collin

    In practice, the interplay between events old and new is equal parts tedious and indecipherable, with the characters talking about parallel timelines like studio executives thrashing out a franchise in a boardroom.

    The Telegraph Full Review
  • Henry Barnes

    Salvation was boring, but Genisys makes you sad. Risk-averse Hollywood has made a crash-test dummy of a once great franchise, simply throwing everything at it to see what it stands.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Joshua Rothkopf

    Fans hoping to watch Schwarzenegger growl his catchphrases with a slight edge of shtick are underestimating the patience involved in sitting through a two-hour slog. As for those who want a little apocalyptic tension or (dare to dream) romance, this new model is not for you. It’s the Skynet cut.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Keith Phipps

    The setpieces, in addition to mostly rehashing better scenes from earlier films, feel thrown together to serve the effects, and the effects look far less astonishing than anything in Cameron’s first two films.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • James Rocchi

    The stunts and CGI and attendant action scenes are all simply fine; there’s nothing here with the stark simple power of “The Terminator” or the strong-but-strange brilliant inventions of “Terminator 2.” Instead, it’s all less-than-spectacular “spectacle” and plot convolutions twisting around themselves at the whim of the summer’s least interesting killer artificial intelligence.

    TheWrap Full Review
  • Justin Chang

    For all its initial playfulness, the script never rises to the level of surreal, cortex-tickling pleasure it seems to be aiming for, and for all its self-awareness it’s weirdly devoid of humor.

    Variety Full Review
  • Jake Cole

    Terminator Genisys feels like being trapped in a conversation with a child breathlessly recounting the highlights of the preceding movies.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Brian Truitt

    Terminator used to be a sci-fi franchise defined by its cool time-travel concept and even better special effects. Unfortunately, it's "Hasta la vista, baby," to those good old days.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    Everything's at stake yet nothing comes to much in Terminator Genisys.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    It doesn’t jell, though, and the movie’s philosophical message is especially grating.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    Terminator: Genisys is a catastrophic misfire on nearly all counts. It’s only saving grace? 2015 Oscar winner J.K. Simmons (Whiplash) as a Mulder-gone-to-pot-esque cop who believes in these “goddamn time-traveling robots.”

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Mark Olsen

    Terminator Genisys could be Exhibit A in why the current line of thinking in Hollywood regarding sequels/reboots/remakes often leads to terrible decisions and worse films.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Manohla Dargis

    It’s amusing to see identical Arnolds clash like titans, but nobody here seems to have fully grasped that they had another heavyweight in Mr. Clarke.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Amy Nicholson

    Genisys is all bullets and bombs, action without pause, as though if the ride stops the whole thing will collapse under its own weight.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    Action scenes are accumulated as if mandated by a stop-watch and almost invariably seem like warmed-over versions of stuff we've seen before, in Terminator entries and elsewhere.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Drew McWeeny

    There is nothing about Terminator: Genisys that suggests that this film was a compelling, urgent, essential dream for anyone involved. This is all about squeezing cash out of people who are fond of the original films, calculated and without any of the soul of Cameron's films.

    Hitfix Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    One achievement of James Cameron’s “Terminator” is that it overcame its low-rent, B-movie trappings. The great sin of “Genisys” is that it costs millions and yet isn’t worth a dime.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    What could anyone have said of the finished film except that it was finished? Terminator Genisys plays like the worst of all outcomes.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    When you’ve already put two sequels to this atrocity into the pre-production pipeline… Maybe you should stop. Or maybe the rest of us, the movie-going, sci-fi loving, “Terminator” adoring public have to be the ones to say it. “This ends here.”
