I am a big fan of the original Terminator movies starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, so I am always on the lookout for more material. Terminator Genisys was released in 2015 as a soft reboot of the Terminator franchise and I was so excited to watch it, especially because of the renown cast. Featuring Emilia Clarke from Game of Thrones and Jai Courtney from the Divergent Series, this movie was packed with action and violence, decent visual thrills, and a unique direction in story. It's a great watch every now and again.
The description of Terminator Genisys, as stated on iTunes, is:
"NEW MISSION, NEW THREAT, NEW FATE. "Arnold is back and better than ever" (Shawn Edwards, FOX-TV) in this explosive new chapter of the blockbuster Terminator franchise. In the war of man against machine, Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney, The Divergent Series) is sent back to 1984 by resistance leader John Connor (Jason Clarke, Everest) to protect his young mother, Sarah Connor (Emilia Clarke, Game of Thrones). However, this time unexpected events have altered the past and threaten the future for all mankind. Now Reese must join forces with Sarah and her "Guardian" (Arnold Schwarzenegger) to save the world and stop the next evolution of Terminators in "one of the best action movies of the year." (Rick Bentley, The Fresno Bee)"
