ReviewSource Variety
Review "The Terminator is a blazing, cinematic comic book, full of virtuoso moviemaking, terrific momentum, solid performances and a compelling story...The clever script, cowritten by director James Cameron and producer Gale Anne Hurd, opens in a post-holocaust nightmare, A.D.2029, where brainy machines have crushed most of the human populace. From that point, Arnold Schwarzenegger as the cyborg Terminator is sent back to the present to assassinate a young woman named Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton) who is, in the context of a soon-to-be-born son and the nuclear war to come, the mother of mankind's salvation...A human survivor in that black future (Michael Biehn), also drops into 1984 to stop the Terminator and save the woman and the future...The shotgun-wielding Schwarzenegger is perfectly cast in a machine-like portrayal that requires only a few lines of dialog."
ReviewRating 9
Review "Not many movies can claim to have changed the face of film, but The Terminator is one of them. Although its title sounds like another D-grade early '80s vigilante flick (The Exterminator), it is a landmark in the science fiction genre, owing more to the thoughtful work of Rod Serling than the fluffy escapism of George Lucas. Its surprising success -- nearly $40 million, which was an impressive sum in 1984 -- launched the careers of both co-writer/producer Gale Anne Hurd and writer/director James Cameron and transformed Arnold Schwarzengger from an obscure Austrian bodybuilder into Hollywood's most renowned action icon...Ironically, The Terminator itself would be the inspiration for two of the 1990's best science fiction films: its sequel Terminator 2: Judgment Day and The Matrix, which also focused on humanity's battle against a race of evil robots."
