Looks like some of the reviews are 10/10, others don't like it.

Script writers can't find any new lines "I'll not be going back" #hollyweird

I trust this reviewer.

He destroys this film, and what he says makes PERFECT sense. I refuse to see it.

T1: 10/10
T2: 8/10 (weakness being actor chosen for young John Conner, and some corny lines by Arnold)
T3: 3/10. Unmemorable, some big plot holes, and some nonsense that cannot be ignored.
t4: 1/10. Atrocious and unmemorable with horrible cast, plot, acting, action.

Looks like it's going to be The Force Awakens of the Terminator franchise - i.e., all girl power and no substance.

When I saw the first one a few years back, it was difficult to recognize Arnold because he was so freakin' Massive. He was one of the most ominous characters I've ever seen in a movie. The plot line about how someone was killing every person named "Sarah Connor," was a genius element.
In the other ones, he turned human and the bad guys got wimpy.

Yeah, from the reviews, it sounds like they couldn't have screwed up the movie more if they had tried.

Killing off John Conner, Destroying the concept that Sarah can make her own fate, inconsistency as to the abilities of the terminator to suit the weak crappy plot and writing.
Sarah going from an interesting character dealing with the asylum and everything else and trying to protect her kid from a super dangerous terminator to a 1 dimensional old hag that says she eats terminators for lunch. barf.
Saying "she'll be back". What rot.
New characters with paper thin character development that you don't care about.

It's like hollywood forgot how to make an interesting movie.
You need to see the back story development of characters, get to like them, see them threatened, see each character arc,
Have a coherent story that is consistent. If a character has some super ability, they can't not use it when needed just to make up for weak writing.

In fairness, T1 is a flawless perfect film, and arguably the best of the sci-fi action types and certainly in the top say 10 without question or debate. And all done on a shoestring budget. So it is hard to meet it or beat it.

T2 was pretty good, but they spent 10x the amount of money so one would think it should be. Not as good nor as creative, and it had some major weaknesses (mainly the actor playing John Connor), but it was a solid entry for a sequel.

The rest are forgettable garbage and a disgrace to the franchise.
