Terminator Genisys seeks a revisionist tone while slapping its hardcore fans in the face.
Review by Matt CummingsThere's a new trend in Hollywood these days: the expand-quel, either telling stories around the main plot (300: Rise of an Empire), forgetting huge chunks of its filmography (Jurassic World), or establishing their universe in an alternate reality (2009's Star Trek). The results have been less than consistent, dividing fans in an effort to pack in audiences hungry for nostalgia. And while Terminator Genisys has plenty of that, it still utterly fails to do anything new, different, or even moderately interesting. Facebook.
