"Terminator Genisys" In Trouble? Early Script Reviews are Extremely Negative, Film Adds Last-Minute Reshoots to CGI Schwarzenegger
This could be a big setback for "Terminator Genisys." Apparently, the script for the upcoming Arnold Schwarzenegger sci-fi action film may have leaked online. And worse yet, it's receiving really awful, poor reviews. Doesn't sound good for Sarah Connor and the future of the "Terminator" franchise, does it?
Now, io9 admits that this script review might not be 100% truthful. And, just as importantly, if it is truthful, a negative review from one scriptreader doesn't mean that the film is necessarily a dud in the making. It's just that this one person didn't like it at all.
But that one person? Really doesn't like "Terminator Genisys." Not even a little bit. The reviewer, at Manly Movie, says the film is so bad (or will be so bad) that "This movie is going to be the end of Arnold Schwarzenegger." Sounds pretty awful, right? Well, the review begins with what we already know about the movie- Kyle Reese is sent back to the year 1985 to protect the always-important Sarah Connor. And so are another Terminator and a liquid metal one as well; all who're intercepted by Arnold Schwarzenegger's aged Terminator character.
But apparently, the fifth "Terminator" film makes a massive shift to the classic "Terminator" lore, a twist so off-the-wall that it sent the reviewer into a fit of rage, and a twist so big the reviewer wasn't comfortable reading in the review. Sounds insane, right?
There's another big change coming to "Terminator Genisys." Apparently, one of the film's major fight scenes is being reshot. The scene, where Schwarzenegger's older Terminator character (who's been reprogrammed into a good guy) fights the evil Terminator from the original 1984 film. And the reshoots have been added in to make the fight "more brutal," according to blastr. There hasn't been a great "Terminator" film in more than two decades. Hopefully, "Terminator Genisys" can overcome all this adversity to create a great film.
