Trivia

(at around 1h 35 mins) When the Terminator/Guardian is looking over a new type of ammo, he mentions that he read about it on gunsandammo.com. In preparing for the first The Terminator (1984) movie, Arnold Schwarzenegger trained every day for weeks on weapons handling and, as a result, wound up garnering a compliment in Soldier of Fortune magazine for his realistic handling of the guns on camera.

Goofs

(at around 1h 28 mins) During the school bus sequence on the bridge, the police block off the bridge on one side and set up spike strips just a few yards in front of them. This is absolutely pointless as the tires would not have enough time to deflate before hitting the police cars and officers. If they were going to be deployed, it would have been safer to deploy them a few miles before the bridge or not setup a roadblock until the tires were deflated and the bus had slowed down a great deal.

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.

Old, but not obsolete
22 July 2015 | by harpenfluitSee all my reviews

The story starts a bit confusing, but after a short time it's back to business. It's a great addition to the series and it's nice to see Arnold back in this role. The special effects are not always the best, but most parts look great. The new type terminator is great, but the old T800 is still not obsolete. The story is convincing enough and can be the prelude of new additions to this series. I hope Arnold will be part of these. It's a pity 3D is still the norm in most cinemas. This movie is best viewed in normal 2D. It's dark en there are no special benefits in 3D. The movie gives also a good critical note about our dependency of our smart-phones, tablets and the Internet integration. Genisys might be more true that we realize ;)
