James Cameron’s 1984 science fiction classic The Terminator blended the perfect touches of comedy, action and characters to become one of the best offerings in the genre. It not only solidified Arnold Schwarzenegger as one of the top action film stars on the planet, but it also spawned sequels, a TV show, books and lines of toys.
It would seem like an act of insanity to attempt a reboot of the franchise with so many accolades going for it. Thank goodness director Alan Taylor (Thor: The Dark World) is a little bit crazy. His Terminator Genisys not only dares to reset the hugely popular film but manages to ramp it up multiple notches.
