Terminator Genisys

Factual error: During the opening narration Kyle Reese states that Skynet attacks humanity on August 12, 1997. In the shot of missiles decimating San Francisco, multiple 2005-present Toyota Priuses, Dodge Chargers and other late model cars are seen.

Continuity mistake: When the T-1000 walks past the deactivated T-800 just after being shot at by Kyle Reese, you can see that the T-800 has taken a lot of damage to the face and the nose is missing. Once the T-800 gets up after being reactivated you can see that the nose is back with a lot less damage to the face with a close up shot.

Continuity mistake: In the bus scene on the Golden Gate bridge, right after the bus flips end-over-end, we see it sliding broadside from Pops' point of view through the hole in the police car windshield, at most a few hundred feet ahead. At this point, the bus falls over the side of the bridge, breaks apart, then catches and hangs there. In the ensuing wide angle shot, even though Pops was a mere block away and racing at top speed, his car is nowhere in sight. What's taking him so long? Did he take the scenic route? Perhaps stop for beverages? Meanwhile, as Kyle and Sara snap out of it, exchange some dialogue, and begin scrambling upward to safety with John Connor again in hot pursuit, a full minute passes before Pops finally rolls in to save the day.

Trivia: It took 12 months to digitally alter bodybuilder Brett Azar into a young Arnold Schwarzenegger in 35 scenes, which accounts for less than 5 minutes of screen time.

More quotes from Terminator Genisys


Question: If John Connor and the resistance are so good at reprogramming Terminators (They have done it 3 times during the series), why don't they just use them to help fight the war? Continuously sending them back in time may have kept Connor alive, but has achieved little else.

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: As long as Skynet kept sending other Terminators into the past to kill John Connor before he became the leader of the human resistance, it was necessary to keep sending reprogrammed Terminators into the past as well so that the timeline would not be altered, thus resulting in a Skynet victory. While it is possible that John and the resistance may have used reprogrammed Terminators to help them in the future, this was never depicted or otherwise mentioned within the film series.

Question: Since the destruction of Cyberdyne in the end of the movie, even considering that "Pops" is from the original (now alternate) timeline, wouldn't that fact alone delete the existence of the Terminator?

Movie Nut

Chosen answer: If we accept the theory that alternate timelines even exist, branching off every time there is deliberate interference through time travel, then it becomes entirely possible for time travelers to continue existing in alternate timelines, even if they erased their own origins.
