I dont mind it. Linda H looks pretty badass and ready to go. Don't know enough about the other 2 to be bothered about them one way the other yet.
There's probably only you and me around with this opinion...was mildly entertained by Genisys (in spite of the new Reese trying to ruin it in every single scene).
Genisys is one of those films that doesnt make a whole lot of sense. It has everything going for it but just doesnt quite make it.There's probably only you and me around with this opinion...
I think Genisys could have been a pretty good flick had Reese been played by an actor instead of a wooden log and the tone had been a bit darker.
Yeah he'd of been a fantastic choice. Wilson Bethel was on the short list as well, and I think it may have been a star making role for him had he played it. But anybody would have been better than Jai Courtney.I will never not bring up the stupidity of making Jai Courtney play Kyle Reese while Sebastian Stan exists.
I didn't mind his look, as much as his attitude. He was constantly astounded by everything, taken completely by surprise and dumbfounded at every turn. He's supposed to be a soldier. Not just that, but an experienced veteran. Not some wide eyed recruit who has never experienced anything.Genisys is one of those films that doesnt make a whole lot of sense.

Part of what maked Reese so good in the original is that he looked war ravaged and desperate. Jai courtney looked like he'd just come from the gym. Too big, well fed and healthy looking to have grown up underground fighting for his life everyday. Beihn really sold that.
Agreed. Not to mention that kiss at the end of the movie that came out of nowhere, cuz there was zero chemistry or even a romance subplot to set it all up...Also it was Genisys when I really faced the ugly side of this franchise-building crap. Instead of making ONE movie that's properly made and see how it does before thinking about sequels they wanted to make a trilogy, so they only sold half a story. There were plot lines like who sent the old Arnie deliberately thrown in (but not actually worked or mapped out where they would lead) and when the movie underperformed they were just like "ah well, tough for those who were actually interested", so Genisys has basically no right to exist any more. It's a half-baked cake that never will be finished. Same with the Warcraft movie, although I wasn't that much invested in that one or Deus Ex: Mankind Divided (which I'm still holding out for).I didn't mind his look, as much as his attitude.

That's what overshadowed his "too fit" appearance.
Beihn was great because he could improvise his plan, take charge, kick butt. He was also a broken, desperate man, on the verge of losing it. I think his love for Sarah was the only reason he didn't swallow a bullet. He took on a suicide mission, he knew it. He did it anyway because that's what was needed.
Jai Courtney acted like he was on a middle school field trip.
So the studios first official look at thier exciting new action franchise reboot is 3 people standing next to each other?
