    Kevin Stanley

    Arnold Schwarzenegger is back as the Terminator, but this time, he's old. In a storyline that has been written, in part, to allow the 68 year old star to return in the lead role, Terminator Genisys boasts a new timeline that riffs on, and pays homage to, all of the best elements of the previous instalments of this long running franchise.

    Kyle Reese is sent back in time to rescue Sarah Connor, but when he arrives in 1984 instead of finding a poodle-haired, waitress in the form of Linda Hamilton, he finds tough-as-nails Emilia Clarke - straight from Game of Thrones! Instead of being hunted by a T-800 sent from the future in the timeline that we know, history has been changed and Sarah has been protected by the T-800 instead - now known as Guardian or affectionally as 'Pops'. It's the first of many plot twists that keep this film ticking and keeps the audience guessing. Because whilst the plot mirrors those of the 1984 and 1991 instalments brought to us from the mind of James Cameron, it also twists the reality we once knew and changes the timelines.

    Jai Courtney takes on the role of Kyle Reese but lacks the acting ability of his predecessor Michael Biehn who added delicate nuances to the character of Reese. Emilia Clarke however as Sarah Connor is every bit as strong as Linda Hamilton and bears a genuine resemblance. She's perfect for the role and impresses greatly. Jason Clarke steps in as John Connor and does his best with a difficult role - far from being the leader of the resistance and saviour of humankind in a strange twist of the story Connor is now part of Skynet. It's the only massive mis-step in a script that is otherwise enjoyable and cleverly envisaged. The biggest plus for this movie of course was always going to be seeing Schwarzenegger back as the Terminator. His performance is impressive. He adds layers to the character that perhaps audiences would not have expected. Schwarzenegger is an actor that many people have frequently under appreciated his performance here will be something of a revelation.

    Several scenes from the 1984 original movie are lovingly recreated and tweaked in order to fit the changing timeline - Kyle Reese being chased by the police through the department store and the T-800's interactions with the punks at the viewpoint are both standout scenes.

    Terminator Genisys is far from perfect but it's an honest attempt to re-invigorate a franchise that after a low budget, sleeper-hit classic in 1984, and a CGI-stunner in 1991, had stumbled wildly with a misconceived stab at comedy in 2003 and then almost died completely without its main star in the 2009 reboot. It's certainly better than similar, recent reboots such as the utterly forgettable Total Recall and the only marginally better rehash of Robocop.

    In a world filled with cash-in sequels, irrelevant remakes and desperate reboots, Terminator Genisys is the best movie for which fans of the series could have hoped.
