James Cameron's much-imitated sci-fi classic. A humanoid cyborg from a future dominated by machines (Arnold Schwarzenegger) is sent back in time to kill the mother (Linda Hamilton) of the as-yet-unborn rebel leader John Connor. Meanwhile, the rebels also select an agent (Michael Biehn) to travel back in time and stop the Terminator, thereby ensuring that events follow their pre-ordained course.
The Terminator was the film that cemented Arnold Schwarzenegger's place in the action-brawn firmament, and both his and the movie's subsequent iconic status are well deserved. He's chilling as the futuristic cyborg that kills without fear, without love, without mercy. James Cameron's story and direction are pared to the bone and are all the more chillingly effective for it. But don't overlook the contribution of Linda Hamilton, who more than holds her own as the Terminator's would-be victim, Sarah Connor, thus creating--along with Sigourney Weaver in Alien--a new generation of rugged, clear-thinking female action stars. The film's minimalist, malevolent violence is actually scarier than that of its far more expensive, more effects-laden sequel. --Anne Hurley, Amazon.com

Perhaps the best film Arnie has done. He makes the perfect robotic villain.
I was unsure as to the benefits of getting the Blu-ray version but glad I did. The picture quality is great, a little bit of grain at times but mostly sharp and very clear which was a surprise for a film made in 1984, and only made the film better.
The film transfer to blu ray is magnificent. Detail levels are sky high and the 16.9 aspect ratio is great. Sound is also fantastic with the metallic sound of the robots and the explosions have real impact and depth.
This Arnie at his brutal best, just buy it!
