  1. Andre Flickatina's rating of the film The Terminator

    nice and lean, no fat. just like arnold

  2. Daniel Roque's rating of the film The Terminator

    Schwarzenegger fits perfectly as a monosyllabic cyborg.

  3. ig_____or's rating of the film The Terminator

    Reese is the unsung hero of the film... but the physicality, charisma and one-liners of the Terminator inevitably made Schwarzenegger the big star of the film (and whole franchise, eventually). 34 years later this is still enjoyable to watch, a straightforward action flick that doesn't take itself too seriously.

  4. VincentVendetta's rating of the film The Terminator

    It's incredible how James Cameron films 1984 Los Angeles with a more futuristic eye than most sci-fi flicks that followed.

  5. DenoResandono's rating of the film The Terminator

    Many people considered it as an excellent action/sci-fi movie. But I always think THE TERMINATOR is an excellent horror movie. The main bad guy kinda reminds me to Michael Myers or Jason Voorhees. It bears a striking resemblance in its characterization: A cold-blooded and unstoppable killer who hunts an innocent girl. When you think it's gonna end, it's not over yet. Arnold Schwarzenegger's performance is chilling!

  6. ceknklsn's rating of the film The Terminator

    60/100 (SPOİLER. Çok fazla mantık hatası var o bu şu diye yazamıyorum bile. Ayrıca film bir yerden sonra monotonlaşıyor çünkü yapay zekanın hiç yada çok zor öleceği net belli oluyor. Sevdiğim özellikleri ise kesinlikle atmosferi, izlenebilme zevki ve güzel sonu. Onun dışında bu kadar abartmaya gerek yok.)

  7. msmichel's rating of the film The Terminator

    Box office smash that launched the careers of both Cameron and Schwarzenegger. Working from a B-movie template Cameron's well written film flipped the sci-fi genre making the villain the character the audience enjoyed more ('I'll be back'). The mythology was sound and expanded in the much bigger sequel that would come 7 years later.

  8. Malt Frisky's rating of the film The Terminator

    In a sense you could classify the film as a horror. Schwarzenegger get's a lot of flack for his acting but his zero emotion as a literal killing machine as we witness the police station massacre is a more memorable moment than anything from the sequel. Even the stop motion and animatronics still have a believability, just to how much atmosphere the setting and cast have put into the stakes of saving humanity.

  10. Dan Kenneth Gigernes's rating of the film The Terminator

    Impressive futuristic landscape kick-start this low-budget action movie that never lets go. It is also dirtier, darker and more depressing compared to the later overblown sequels. One of the reasons why the original is great was that Schwarzenegger played the villain - a cold gazed assassin cyborg out to change the past so that the robots can destroy humanity. Old story in new wrapping perhaps - but it is a good one.

  12. petit astronaute's rating of the film The Terminator

  13. Ben Nash's rating of the film The Terminator

    For my money, still Cameron's best film.

  14. Wee Hunk's rating of the film The Terminator

    This movie seems fine now. It's a decent little film, with roughly 1/17th of the budget for the sequel. They just should have stopped after the 2nd one.

  15. NUGA's rating of the film The Terminator

    "The Terminator" is for all intents or purposes a B cult movie, even though it lack the cheesyness of a cult movie or the polish of an Hollywood blockbuster, but it still managed to dish out fantastic effects. I never expected this but i believe that Tarkovsky's view on this movie is flawed. Sure penicillin and all that but this movie didn't intent in advancing cinema as art more than it does showing Linda's tits.

  16. FISCHER's rating of the film The Terminator

    Excellent travail mené de main de maître, efficace et quelquefois époustouflant... www.cinefiches.com

  17. MS1915's rating of the film The Terminator

    The film boasted a number of technological feats, ahead of its time. Also a great (great) platform for Arnold; little talking and more reliant on a physical presence (something he knows well). Story can jump back and forth a few times in an almost confusing manner, but all around a good film.

    The ultimate blend of Orwell and action

  23. Aditya Watts's rating of the film The Terminator

  24. cinegeek.de's rating of the film The Terminator

    (...) James Camerons düsteres Meisterwerk entstand mit wenig Budget und spielte sein Geld schnell wieder ein. Im Grunde funktionierte The Terminator wie ein "Midnight Movie", denn das Publikum machte ihn gross - nicht eine kalkulierte Promotion.(...)
