The Terminator (1984)

The Terminator

The director James Cameron’s first big movie is The Terminator which is released in 1984. This is the movie that really showed people how Arnold Schwarzenegger if used correctly could become the next big movie star. This role was perfect for Arnold because his size fits in perfectly with his character. He never has to talk he just looks like he is ready to kill at any point. Also, who has a better body then Arnold and that good looking body was definitely needed for the opening nude scene. Arnold turns out to look like one hell of a bad guy or shall I say Machine.

The movie is based in California ( what a story to go from a serial killer to a governor all in the same state, talk about living the American Dream) where Arnold has come back from the future and is a killing machine and won’t stop for anything or anyone. He has no morals, or feelings. Arnold is on a mission and no one is going to get in his way.

You can definitely tell this movie was made in the 80’s by the style of punk music and the crazy haircuts. I loved how almost all the phone calls in the movie came from Phone Booths. Not many cell phones during this era!

In this movie there is action from the very beginning and it doesn’t stop until the movie is over. I haven’t seen this many people die in a movie in a very long time.

If you like ACTION then this movie will have you strapped to your seat during the entire show. If you liked this one then don’t worry because as Arnold say’s he “will be back”!!!
