Terminator: Matt Smith's "Genisys" Role Explained


Spoilers obviously
"You see in the beginning [Matt Smith] grabs John. He's not from this timeline. He's from an alternate universe, in the multiverse. Another of the many universes that exist. That Skynet is not from that timeline... This Skynet has been to this universe, and this universe, and this universe. That's why he says, ‘I came a very long way to stop you.' He's not from here. So he's watched it. He's watched it happen a bunch of different times, and each time he's seen it there is a different result but the same result." --'Genisys' scribes Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier

So he's the evil robot Doctor.  No but really, he's not the Skynet from the first two films.  So....idk

For funsies: still more spoilers so be careful

The Last Sci-Fi Blog: 5 Things to Love (and 5 Things to Hate) About 'Terminator Genisys'

1. A Clever First Half
From the opening with the war starting to Kyle Reese meeting the T-1000 in 1984, there are a lot of fun twists to the first films we love so much.   Seeing Kyle and John's friendship and knowing what John has to do.  Kyle stealing the homeless man's clothes.  Those Nikes :3

1.5.  The Rocket Man speech <3
4. The Presence of J.K. Simmons
Basically, he's easily the funniest part of the film.  A conspiracy theorists who gets laughed at but ultimately gets the last laugh.  Simmons is signed on for the sequels so fingers crossed.

my god this is a spoilery preview clip o_O


2. The Wasting of Byung-hun Lee and Jason Clarke

So basically, Byung-hun Lee is basically just there to chase Kyle and say one line.  He was cool looking and pretty scary (and looked and moved like exactly like Robert Patrick.  It was freaky) but only in it for five minutes.  Hopefully there will be an explanation as to why a T-1000 was sent back to 1984.   Jason Clarke is one of the few strongest points of the film but outside of his scenes with Kyle and the garage scene, he's not given much to do aside from being menacing and unstoppable.  But we still don't know much about adult John.  Hopefully the sequel gives us more.

5. Set-Up For a Sequel That May Never Happen
Speaking of sequels:  there were way too many plot points left dangling for a franchise that may never get another chance.  I'm hoping it does because those plot points can be interesting and fun and different than what we are used to with the original franchise but idk.  With Jurassic world still dominating and Magic Mike getting the female audience and a kids film all out at the same time it's hard to tell :(

But you got Matt Smith's character who needs explanation, who sent back the Guardian to save bb Sarah, who sent back the liquid Terminator years earlier than T2, what happens to John, what's up with Skynet and it's ability to never ever die.  Danny Dyson shout outs <3.   Skynet still evolving.  That damn after credits scene.  Will John even be born?


the critics are way harsh with this film.  it's definitely way better than 3 and 4, a lot of fun, and the actors fit the roles well. yes, even Jai.

the only thing I didn't like was them not even trying to save John Connor.  I didn't spend 4 movies and a tv show to have him be ~evil and not try to be saved by Sarah.

sorry mods. my bad.
lmao okay third time's the charm?
