Trivia

This is one of the few films in the series that does not mention the term "cybernetic organism" in reference to the Terminators. Instead, the protagonists mainly refer to them as "cyborgs". See more »

Goofs

(at around 1h 16 mins) At the point in the movie where Dyson is addressing the crowd, the timer reads 21 hrs, 5 minutes until activation. As the time that Genisys was supposed to go active was supposed to be midnight, that would have meant that the press conference would have been held at almost 3 am, yet the time of day is obviously late morning.

Quotes

Kyle Reese: [narrating] Before they died, my parents told me stories about how the world once was; what it was like long before I was born; before the war with the machines. They remembered a green world, vast and beautiful, filled with laughter and hope for the future. It's a world I never knew. By the time I was born, all this was gone.

How to Destroy the Past with the Mediocrity of the Present
3 October 2015 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

In 1984, fans of sci-fi with action were surprised by "Terminator", one of the best films of this genre in the cinema industry. Followed by the excellent sequel "Terminator 2: Judgment Day" (1991), the franchise apparently ended in 2003 with "Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines". However, in 2008, it was released the series "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles" that also worked well showing how Sarah and John Connor survived along the years. In 2009, the exhausted franchise was revived by Hollywood with "Terminator Salvation".

Unfortunately "Terminator Genisys" is a typical example of the present days of Hollywood that insists in destroying great films from the past with the mediocrity of the present writers. This time, the studio does not only destroy the franchise but also the character John Connor and the initial vulnerability of Sarah Connor. The number of inconsistencies and paradoxes in the "butterfly effect" of the story is amazing. The best part of this movie is the smile of Pops. My vote is four.

Title (Brazil): "O Exterminador do Futuro: Gênesis" ("The Terminator from the Future: Genisys")
