This review is a little bit delayed. Normally I review a film a day or so after watching it for review purposes. I watched the original Terminator film way over a week ago, literally right before seeing Terminator Genisys. So yeah, I took my time getting this done. I hadn’t seen the film for a couple of years. Terminator is one of those films I grew up with back in the days when parents gave zero shits what their kids watched. Oh the 80s was a grand time. So, how does James Cameron’s (second) first film hold up today? Really fucking well actually. Click below for wordstuffs.

The good thing about a franchise compromising of two universally praised films and two universally panned films is that a director, in this case Alan Taylor, only has to aim for mediocre in order to be regarded as the third best. Of course, it helps if the film is more on the side of good though. In that regard Alan Taylor has pretty much managed to hit a home run. In as much as Terminator Genisys is pretty decent and enough above mediocre to be on the right side of enjoyable. But lets go into more detail shall we? A semi spoilery review coming up. Although none more spoilery than the trailers have been really.
