One of the best films of the 80's.,
This review is from: The Terminator (Special Edition) [DVD]  (DVD)
This is a groundbreaking science fiction film that won the first prize in the Festival of Avoriaz that specializes in this genre. It is also a defining moment for Arnie in the first film whee he really does make an impression. The Conan films easily become forgotten entities once the film enters the interval stage. Arnie is impressive as the cyborg who makes Steve Austin appear as a friendly teletubby. His chilling portrayal as a herald of doom and his constant albeit obsessive search for the mother of the future saviour John Connor; played by Linda Hamilton is memorable. The climax is a frequently rewound experience. Even when limbless, the relentless obsession to kill Sarah Connor knows no bounds. One of the best films of the 80's.
