Early in the movie it is stated that only things covered in organic skin can travel back in time; yet the T-1000, which is entirely liquid metal, and John Connor, who is made of nanomachines, travel back in time with no problem. Although this is often cited in regards to Terminators like the T-1000, it may not be an actual continuity problem. It may instead indicate that poly- mimetic terminators clone actual living tissue on their bodies, also explaining why they have to go through naked like anyone else. See more »

An insult to the franchise
6 August 2015 | by (London) – See all my reviews

I'm a big Terminator 1 and 2 fan. They are 2 of my favourite sci-fi movies of all time. Terminator 3 and 4 were decent but both quite dull and not even comparable to their predecessors. Terminator 5 is one of the worst movies I've ever seen. There are no words to describe how awful this is. They couldn't have made it any worse even if they tried. Everything from the acting to the script to the special effects is absolutely laughable. And yes I did start laughing at some point, thinking 'what the hell is going on here?'. The people who wrote the script should be fired, the actors should go to acting classes and Arnie should apologise to the fans for this monstrosity. This should have never been made. What a joke of a movie.
