view all

Futuristic cyborg (Schwarzenegger, suitably robotic and menacing) is sent to present-day Earth. His job: kill the woman, Sarah Connor (Hamilton), who will conceive the child destined to become the great liberator and arch-enemy of the Earth's future rulers. The cyborg is also pursued by another futuristic visitor, Kyle Reese (Biehn), who falls in love with the intended victim. Cameron's pacing is just right in this exhilarating, explosive thriller which displays Arnie as one cold-blooded villain who utters a now famous line: "I'll be back." Followed by "Terminator 2: Judgment Day."

The Terminator
Star_onStar_onStar_onStar_on 4.0 4.0

The Terminator is a great movie. It's full of action, which I like. The Terminator is about a robot sent to kill a woman, Sarah Connor, who's future son will be an enemy to the robots in the future. Basically, the movie is of the Terminator chasing Sarah and of her trying to escape. This is probably one of my mother's favorite movies, as well as mine.
