It starts out in the future with Kyle Reese going back to 1984, like in the first film, to protect Sarah Connor from the T-800 only to find the timeline's been altered (or in this case rebooted) to pave the way for an entirely different adventure with Arnie & Friends. Director Alan Taylor does a fine job at sticking to the tones of the James Cameron films while updating the feel for audiences of today. Arnie, Jason Clarke & Lee Byung-hun do a wonderful job as the three different Terminator models, however Emilia Clarke & Jai Courtney are painfully dull as the human characters and that's like shooting the whole heart of the film in the foot. As far as pointless reboots/sequels go, Genisys isn't a bad film but it still leaves much to be desired.
