John Connor sends Kyle Reese back in time to protect Sarah Connor, but when he arrives in 1984, nothing is as he expected it to be. (IMDB)

I enjoyed TERMINATOR GENYSIS. Sure, it’s not as good as the original and some of its sequels. And, yes, it’s a bit confusing as it tries to represent the complexities of time travel. And, yes, the acting is no better than what you’d expect in something like this. But,  the special effects are great. There’s some humour. It doesn’t take itself too seriously. And the production design is great. It moves along at a frantic pace.  There’s lots of violence but it is all obviously staged and unrealistic. And the action is incredible. The whole thing is just good fun. And there is actually some quite interesting ideas about memory. My rating is for enjoyment!
