  1. 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.

  3. 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.

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

    For my money, still Cameron's best film.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. FISCHER's rating of the film The Terminator

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

  10. 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.

  16. 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.(...)

  17. letters never sent's rating of the film The Terminator

    When I was a kid, this was a horror movie to me. I was so terrified of it.

  18. James Mackin's rating of the film The Terminator

  19. Ethan's rating of the film The Terminator

    This is James Cameron trying to be Philip K. Dick and it works for him. Schwarzenegger gives the performance of his career and he barely speaks.
