A human and a cyborg are sent from the future, one to protect the mother of a boy who will someday be needed to save the world, and one to kill her. This movie was okay and I know a lot of people like this film and I can say the movie as good score and CGI.

Düster

Our Daily Free Stream: The Terminator. Zum Geburtstag von Arnold Schwarzenegger! - Das ist das Jahr 2009 nach der Apokalypse. Die Welt liegt in Trümmern, so düster wie in den grossen SciFi Meisterwerken der 80er. Es herrschen intelligente Maschinen, um die letzten Reste der Menschheit zu vernichten.

The Terminator review

Th year 2029, machines eliminate human existence. Back in 1984, a Terminator (Arnold Schwarzenegger), is programmed to kill Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton).

"The Terminator" by Yojimbo

In a post apocalyptic future where humanity has been made all but extinct by rebellious technology, a relentless killing machine is sent back in time to assassinate the mother of the human resistance leader who represents their only hope of salvation. The original Terminator film is an exercise in sheer cinematic economy as James Cameron's breakthrough film is as ruthlessly efficient as the murderous cyborg itself. There's none of the schmaltz and sentimentality that went on to mar his later films and the taut direction and thrilling, bullet riddled action sequences make for one of the most tense and brutal sci-fi action films ever made. The cynical may point out that Arnold's robotic acting skills made him perfect for the part, but I think his performance is cruelly under-rated; as those...
