A classic that holds up well
I consider this a classic. Even though it's dated, it's still a terrific movie. The plot and script are pretty good. The whole time parodox thing makes my head spin if I think about it too long . (John Conner sends his future father back in time to save him and....well....become his father!!) The special effects seem old fashioned now, but were quite effective when the movie first came out. The dramatic music amuses me a bit. Arnold is effective in his role as the terminator. With just a handful of lines to say, he is a menacing killer from the future. The movie is full of tense moments and just enough action to accent the story, not overwhelm it. I've seen it tons of times and reccomend it if someone out there hasn't seen it.
