9/10
Pretty epic movie. I am glad I waited for the HD version. The action scenes are epic, like on the level of The Matrix. The story takes place on alternate timeline, so you don't have to watch the older movies. I give this movie a 9 out of 10.

If you take out the political messaging which has the subtlety of a jack hammer, the female role stereotyping, which has the subtlety of a sledgehammer, you are left with the emperors new clothes I’m sorry yo say.
It was an attempt at rehashing T2 but a very poor one and I felt as bored watching it as ‘Linda Hamilton projected with her cynical dried up acting
I couldn’t help but compare her reprisal of a strong female icon with Jamie Lee Curtis in the last Halloween.
There was no competition really.
Please don’t come back Arnie, you’re way too good for this hotch potch.
2/10 from a Terminator And Arnie Fan

Why people are trashing this, I don't know. It's just as much cheesy fun as all the other Terminator movies. I can't wait for the next one!

Another sequel capitalizing on a previously successful franchise. It is watchable but as a continuation of the Terminator films it is disappointing. I found Linda Hamilton's acting so forced. She doesn't do senior kick-ass female well, nor does Arnold Schwarzenegger . In fact, all of the characters seem to have jumped on the action-super-hero band-wagon which only proved to water-down their respective performances. Of the five lead characters three were female - as if, having women be action super-heroes was more important than a decent story line. I know that good roles for women in films has become the catch-all these days but they didn't need to try and fit in three all in the same movie. Mackenzie Davis' (Grace)performance was great however. Her performance stood above the rest. I think Hollywood is getting too caught up in viewer-demand for female roles and cgi than in producing a damn fine film with an excellent story. Altering the Terminator story line gave way to new movies but I think it ruined the SkyNet premise that the franchise was built on in the first place. ...

This was a great movie, 2nd best only to T2 in the entire franchise. The acting was very good, both from Arnie (his acting is getting better with age) and Linda Hamilton but also from Mackenzie Davis who I think is great and Natalia Reyes. The movie follows T2 and I think the script was decent. CGI and action scenes was top notch (though it was a tad too much action for my taste, just as in T2).

And to those of you who say that Linda Hamilton hasn't aged well. Shame on you, she is frickin 63 years old and looks completely fine for that age.

My only complaint is that I think it was a little too little story and scenes from the future.

If you like the genre you will most probably like this, well worth a watch.

@PizzaSlice I agree with everything you said, especially about Linda. She looks amazing!

I thought the action was great and after the movie I found myself singing, Who runs the world? Girls. lol

Terminator A failure would have been a better title for this. Ok a few good scenes but i agree with @bigsteve on this and Arnie should stick to Directing now and please no more of these films, this was just another way to cash in on the name of the Terminator films.

Sad, dismal and this should be the last pic of this franchise - hard to imagine it being worse than this. I feel sorry for Arnold and Linda Hamilton - she has not aged well and this should be her swan song along with Arnold. But, at this late date - anyone reading this is probably aware

@BabyFacedAssassin 'ready for the next one?' - that's scarier than what the next one may actually be! You'd think they'd give it a rest? But I am afraid you may be right! Hope I don't have nightmares thinking about it....

@BabyFacedAssassin I know! I was trying to forget...Pretty bad year for franchises.. Churning them out like an assembly line with no quality control. Just imagine how may people had to ok the final cut / story line! So much for adding Cameron's name to it...

@bigsteve I agree with all you got to say on this apart from Arnie may be ok for directing and you are right about Linda she as not aged well (not her fault most of these celebs have loads of plastic surgery to keep looking younger). Good Comment @bigsteve

Good to see recognizable faces and storyline. Graphics are ok though too quick at times, possibly to tone down the gore. A couple new heroes certainly made watching more interesting. 7.5/10

Terminated
If you're going to bring back a character from a previous movie they must be consistent and possess all the personality traits that made them believable. The character Sarah Conner is nothing like she was in Judgement Day in which she was at the height of excellence in comparison to this movie where she came off as bored and crusty. She had no fire or passion for her calling as she did once before.
There was an overkill of sleek, smooth unrealistic CG effects that will destroy any possibility of immersion into the story, but in this case there's no story happening here that isn't just spelled out to you in big bold print so to speak.
The "protector" the humans sent back was disorganized, ill prepared, panicked and hostile. This gives the impression of lacking intelligence and common sense which I guess you can make up for it with strength, agility and some combat training, but these attributes can only get you so far. Personally I'd rather see someone who is smart as hell. For instance in the first three Terminator films the Terminators gathered everything they would need before starting their mission. This is a smart move. It isn't just about getting some clothes and jumping in with both feet.

@BabyFacedAssassin What do u think was it worth a one time watch

@Chicago_fan I think many don't get it. If you've seen the Back To The Future trilogy, it taught us about time line tangents. Keep that in mind when watching this and if you've forgotten a lot of details about the time line from the last one or two, watch them again before watching this.

Yes, I do recommend it.....for true fans.

@Chicago_fan I didn't say time travel, I said time line tangents. The Terminators are the only characters who travel through time, only one way, they can't go back.

What I'm alluding to is, what the characters do in the movies to change the future. That's very prevalent in this episode.

Like I said though, it might be an idea to watch the last one.

Enjoy.

garbage. these films should have ended with Judgement Day. yet another obvious money grab, otherwise it's so pointless if they keep having to explain everything in the beginning of each sequel. for f*cks sake - come up with something new, if you're that concerned with an audience that never saw the original films over 25 years ago. they deserve better than this dirty old gravy stain and frankly so do the original fans. just look at what they did with Rocky, Rambo, Indiana Jones and - some might argue, Star Wars.

i may try watching this again when a good digital copy becomes available, though i doubt it will impress me any more beyond simply getting a better look at the visual effects. even those looked weak - but hey, maybe if they polished that turd just a little more... you think?

Now that's what I call a proper sequel! Everything about it was top notch, from the script, to the acting, effects, soundtrack, etc. This movie has a great blending of action, heart, and dare I say wit. I damn near squirted a few, several times.
I wasn't sure what to think going into this. On the one hand I'm a big fan of Terminator: Genisys. On the other, it's a great fscking movie! I can live with it :)

This was an awesome new adaption to the terminator saga. They brought back Linda Hamilton and yeah, Arnold Schwarzenegger. It brought this saga to a full fold of types to have her end one outcome to start another outcome. Nice adaption I thought, as one was prevented only to start anew, and what's to become of young Dani, and how many more movies can we squeeze into her before they run out of ideas, or, stop the future only to make...…..another version of what's to come.

it is a shame that it does not run with the other terminator films as terminator 3 rise of the machines john connor is grown up and sarah connor dead but in this she is alive and he is dead but it is a very good action film all the way though it I give 100%

Tim Miller never would let you down. He could make a Dingelberry (let's see if that word gets censored) look onerous over your eminent doom. Seriously, he could make a film where a Roomba was about to sweep you up and process you into Chicken feed and you would believe it and it would be scary as hell. Once again, he amazes us.

I love the fact that the artisans involved in the making of this film and particularly the dialogue, blatantly make a hard swing into making the film extremely Spanish, in a period where xenophobia rocks the right wing's sense of security. What's even better is, on the version I saw, the subtitles were in French, so nearly all my linguistic pallets are getting a pickled ginger scrub between doses of visual wasabi.

The fact that they produced a film where the youth aren't glorified for the sake of market share is also nice. Oh, and the women are playing some lead decisive roles here, yet no one is wiping unnecessary coined statements like abrasive metoo sandpaper in your face. ...

Finally Terminator is back to its classical roots! strong women of different age as heroines and one of them is mexican - the jibe in Trumps direction is conspicuous.
cool killing machines, lotsa runaway action, differing timelines... anything you would expect of a total action classic. A worth it good bye to one of Arnies best characters.
cool quotation: " a mexican woman without papers on US territory? you wanna be Nr.1 on the most wanted list?"
Thank you Arnie! you will never get an Oscar nor a Nobel price-- but you are alright!!!
Thx to Mackenzie Davis and especially Linda Hamilton: she really proves: you can be really sexy and cool over 50!! and to all others of course
8/10

With impressive action set-pieces, elaborate car chases and more big guns than you can shake a stick at Linda Hamilton is hands down incredible as a grey-haired, muscle-hardened, gun-crazed alcoholic who's seen the future and wants to shoot it in the face. However It's fun, smart and action-packed and retains the heart at its non-mechanical core.
it reminds me of T2. smiley💕

I’m rating this movie 5 stars! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
