Terminator Genisys, directed by Alan Taylor, is the fifth installment in the Terminator series. The movie marks Arnold Schwarzenegger's much awaited return to the movie franchise that over the years has become synonymous with him.Terminator Genisys serves as a retroactive continuity to the previous films in the series. In other words, the characters are more or less the same, only they exist in an alternate reality. While Schwarzenegger reprises his iconic role, that of a Terminator T-800 (Model 101), the parts of Sarah Connor, John Connor and Kyle Resse are played by Emilia Clarke, Jason Clarke and Jai Courtney, respectively.
Terminator Genisys begins in the year 2029 with John Connor, the messianic leader of mankind's war against Skynet, preparing for one last decisive attack at the enemy's main defense grid in Los Angeles with the aim of destroying its hidden weapon stored in a remote facility. But, before John and men can reach the weapon, Skynet plays a masterstroke forcing John to send Kyle Reese, his most trusted friend, back in time to protect Sarah Connor. When Kyle arrives in 1984 Los Angeles, much to his dismay, he soon learns that nothing is as he expected it to be. With his back against the wall, he must quickly come to terms with the reality and do whatever it takes to fulfill his mission.
