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.

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). A human named Kyle Reese (Michael Biehn), a human resistance fighter, ensures that Connor is protected. Kyle divulges to Sarah that in the future an artificial intelligence network called Skynet will become self-aware and initiate a nuclear holocaust of mankind. Sarah's yet-unborn son John will save the survivors and lead a resistance movement against Skynet. Special effects were pleasing to the eye and screenplay was original. Only qualms this critic has was the lack of an interesting protagonist, lack of continuity of the film and its somewhat disappointing conclusion. The Terminator however is a sensational sci-fi action film t...

"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...

Ready for a sequel

This movie is the first of its kind, quite literally. Never before have we seen a movie where two entities are sent back in time with conflicting missions, one to protect a woman who's son (who is not yet even thought of) will be the leader of the future resistance against Skynet's machines. The other, who has more of a "cut and dry" type of assignment... To kill every woman he can find with the name of Sara Connor. The movie is pretty much a cat and mouse, catch me if you can type of plot, which is well done, but it seems too basic, or maybe only skin deep. You don't really even realize that until you watch the sequel (which I am sure most of you have) that there can be so much more depth to the plot and overall story line. Maybe because the T800 is the antagonist in the first one ...
