Good start, but then it gets ruined
This is one of the best movies I’ve seen in a very long time. You have to go and see this on the big screen.
Arnold Schwarzenegger brings complete excitement to the big screen as the T-800, a cyborg who is assigned to kill Sarah Connor. Being pursued by the T-800, Sarah joins with her future husband, Kyle Reese who, in the year 1984, must evade from the evil T-800 from killing her and the unborn baby that will soon become the leader of the Resistance. The film brings to life an "edge of your seat" exploration that fulfills what is more to come, and brings intriguing new depth to the franchise. It DOES NOT show John Connor, but throughout the whole entire movie, it brings you exciting new depth into the franchise that soon ties in with the young hero in its future franchise.Everything in this movie is pure-adrenaline fun, a popcorn adventure that is completely "out of this world" and very remembering that no-one in this day and age would ever forget the 1984's much-anticipated.
The Terminator is a tour de force feature film by James Cameron-a story so good you can't help but be involved. It involves a dire future where machines rule and humans are worse off than rats. A man-a savior by the name of John Connor appears from the future into the present to save Sarah Connor- his mother. They are hunted by The Terminator- a vision of artificial intelligence which is lethal and methodical and incredibly well played by Arnold who was stepping into superstardom. This is one of the greatest thriller (horror?) drama films ever and a staple of science fiction. Watch The Terminator asap.
Before James Cameron's ego ran rampant, this was one of the great films (the other being Aliens) that he made. A simple story of time travel, with a soldier and a killing machine from the future, coming back to accomplish disparate tasks: the soldier to save, the machine to kill, the mother of the futures savior. A brilliant film, sparse and quick, it keeps the viewer glued to the screen and again, in the pre CGI days, the limited amount of effects are simply amazing. The movie that set Arnold on his career path, and made Cameron one to be noticed. Just great.
It's made in 1984 and has incredible effect and so much powerful imagination.
