The Terminator is a classic sci-fi movie. It remains one of my favorite. I often use this movie to start off my friends who don't think they like sci-fi. Its hard not to be drawn into the story. Linda Hamilton has one of the best all time story arcs going between Terminator and Terminator II. There Terminator is now a classic sci-fi and a must see for all lovers of sci-fi and those trying it out. I adore Michael Biehn too.
