I have no idea what is wrong with critics, this movie was magnificent and I enjoyed it immensely. The warmth in having the T-800 (Model 101) back in action and taking the lead after them Christian Bale woeful attempt to make a terminator movie without The Terminator we know.
The movie had it all for me, the emotion that developed in the bond between human and machine, and the action and fight scenes are more fluid here than in Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991) and the choreography was captivating.

It is arguable that the TX in Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines (2003) seemed like a more formidable foe for the T-800, than the T-3000 in this movie, but that is my view.

Wow!!! There is no stopping Skynet and the eventual manifestation of Judgment Day. Every time we see a Terminatormovie, Judgment Day gets postponed and the earth is safe for some years to come.

Thanks to scenes after the credit, yeap there is going to be a Terminator part six and a seventh as long as this and six makes the required cash that will cause the studio to finish the trilogy.

Here is how the movie went, John Connor (Jason Clarke) sends Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney) back in time to save his mother Sarah Connor (Emilia Clarke) and be his father in 1984. Which is how the Terminatorstory goes, but things changed.

During the time travel, Kyle sees John killed by a terminator (T-5000 played by Martin Smith) and when he gets to 1984, there is another terminator waiting to kill him, a T-1000.

Kyle runs and is saved by Sarah Connor and meets T-800 (Model 101) played by Arnold Schwarzenegger. The past is all messed up, and in this 1984, we have more than one terminator running around.

Kyle soon discovers that when Sarah was nine years old, she and her family were attacked by a terminator killing her entire family and she was saved by a T-800 whom she now calls Pops, as the T-800 raised her and taught her how to defend herself and prepare her for 1984 where she will meet Kyle Reese.

The mystery in this plot is, who sent the T-800 back in time to save Sarah when she was nine?

The plot continues to thicken and our three heroes (Sarah, Kyle and T-800) must stop Skynet before it takes over the world.

In the end of the movie there is an upgrade done in favor of our old T-800 (Model 101), as he is upgraded to a T-1000 with a mimetic poly-alloy (liquid metal). I can’t wait to see the next installment of this movie.

As I start my Terminator collection I had to rank these movies (do note I will be skipping Terminator 4, Terminator Salvation, never saw the movie, didn’t bother to as Arnold wasn’t in it).
For me the best Terminator in order of greatness are:

4) Terminator 5: Genisys (2015)

Hopefully this list will change the moment we see Terminator 6 and 7.
