The Terminator Review


A human-looking indestructible cyborg is sent from 2029 to 1984 to assassinate a waitress, whose unborn son will lead humanity in a war against the machines, while a soldier from that war is sent to protect her at all costs.

The Terminator is one of the greatest and most influential movies of the eighties starring a young Arnold Schwarzenegger as the Terminator. The Terminator is a machine sent back in time from the future to terminate the life of the mother of the leader of the human rebellion in the war of man vs. machine. To protect his mother and namely himself from the Terminator, the leader of the rebellion sends a soldier back in time who them sleeps with his mother and becomes his father. I thought that was a great little time twist. The Terminator plows through a police precinct and kills every one in sight while taking a massive amount of fire power.
