10 Movies That Subverted Expectations (And Fans Hated It)
10. Terminator: Genisys
A new Terminator movie – Terminator: Dark Fate – is on the
way this October, but many people like to think of the Terminator franchise as
having ended with 1991’s Judgment Day. If you remember, Rise of the Machines totally
soured fans, but Salvation went even further in being a complete and utter
stinker. And then, well then there was Terminator: Genisys.
Going into the movie, we were all expecting to see John
Connor heading a resistance force against the no-good, nefarious machines that
were looking to wipe out mankind; that being what we'd been taught to expect since the franchise began way back in 1984. Only, that was far from what we ultimately
Terminator: Genisys took the foundations of what we knew
about the franchise – that John Connor was set to lead the human fightback and
save our future – and spun it totally on its head by revealing that *shock
horror* John Connor was actually a T-3000.
It came as no surprise to hear that, post-Genisys, the Terminator
series was again having a shake-up; Terminator: Dark Fate being a reboot of
sorts that will ignore all three films since Judgment Day.
