The Terminator

James Cameron’s classic ‘80s sci-fi flick starring Arnold Schwarzenegger as a cyborg sent from the future to kill an unsuspecting woman, Sarah Connor.

A war between man and machine commences in the near future. In a desperate last act, Skynet, the oppressive computer system that’s fighting a losing war, sends a Terminator (Schwarzenegger) back in time to prevent the leader of the human resistance, John Connor, from being born. The ruthless robot has only one objective: kill the mother, Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton).

In a unique moment of irony, they had once considered O.J. Simpson to play the Terminator, but feared he was “too nice” for the role of a cold-blooded killer.

The heavy-metal future hell Cameron cooks up still steams with potency and, for those coming to it for the first time, the film grips like a steel hand.

This is a monster movie, and the monster's role fits Mr. Schwarzenegger just fine.

As chillingly efficient in exacting thrills from its audience as its titular character is in executing its targets.
