I can’t believe I’m about to defend a Transformers film, but I disagree. I thought Terminator: Genisys (which this thread is about) was just terrible. Most of the action scenes I found to be really boring. There was no sense of humor, there was no sense of real danger, it was just rote exposition and action scenes. I never felt absorbed into the story except at the beginning when events were following the events of the first film pretty closely. The farther it got from those events, the more eye-roll inducing the movie got, and the more and more I kept losing interest. By the time they got to the school bus action scene, it really didn’t matter to me at all, so the whole bus scene was the opposite of exciting. It was just so boring.
On the other hand, the fourth Transformer movie, the one with TJ Miller and Stanley Tucci, was really funny in parts. The giant Magnet scene was a crazy action scene in which I actually cared about what was going on and I was fully absorbed. Terminator: Genisys has nothing like that.
