Movie Review


The Terminator (1984)


Directed by: James Cameron

Starring: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Michael Biehn, and Linda Hamilton

In 2029, mankind and machines engage in endless battle.  Mankind has been on the losing side of this battle for years, and the machines are trying to finish them off.  The only thing in their way is the resistance movement led by a man named John Connor.  They send a Terminator (Arnold Schwarzenegger) back to Los Angeles in 1984 to find and kill Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton), the mother of John.  Meanwhile, the resistance sends Kyle Reese (Michael Biehn) back in time to protect Sarah and the unborn leader of the resistance from this heartless and relentless machine.  The Terminator is definitely one of the most successful and influential independent films of all time.  You’ve got a badass robot, a great storyline, and a new direction for sci-fi and action flicks.  This is the movie that accelerated the careers of James Cameron and Arnold Schwarzenegger.  It’s a movie that is years ahead of its time and is something that every movie aficionado must see at some point in life.
