What? Arnold used to be the bad guy?
Sadly Terminator I seems to have been largely forgotten and replaced by the more action-packed and special effects-laded Terminator II. I consider both movies to be of a very high caliber, but for different reasons. Terminator I is much more of a true science fiction film. The human element is better established, which in turn makes the stark contrast of the soulless terminator even more sinister. Don't let the dated special effects of the terminator at the end of the movie fool you, this movie set the standard for science fiction films for the next 20 years.
