The movie's strength is that, like The Matrix, it combines action with ideas.

Wittily written with a nice eye for sharp detail, it's hard sci-fi action all the way.

Netflix

The film that put James Cameron on the map and made Arnold Schwarzenegger an international star, The Terminator is a high-potency distillation of a bunch of sci-fi concepts into one package.

While many feel the sequel is superior, I'd contend that T2 was merely more expensive. If you're building a sci-fi collection, this one should be on your Top Ten list.

An efficient, cold-blooded sci-fi splatter movie that never makes the mistake of forgetting that on some level it is deeply ridiculous.

I remain perpetually amazed by how magnificently Cameron keeps the tension up... there is not a single moment that isn't operating at 100%.

A brilliant sci-fi film that cleverly combines strong storytelling with suspense and killer set-pieces.

Still one of the most harrowing science fiction films in James Cameron's repertoire...

Remains a surprisingly meditative work, its concentrated visceral bursts not unlike punctuation marks among something more brooding, even prayerful.

The Terminator is a blazing, cinematic comic book, full of virtuoso moviemaking, terrific momentum, solid performances and a compelling story.

More than enough violence to make it a profoundly moral film; and Arnold's a whizz.

...remains the quintessential Schwarzenegger movie...a high-octane, tech-noir adventure.

Shadows on the Wall

A surprisingly vicious little film, filled with indiscriminate, un-PC killings and a rough-edged feel that makes it utterly compelling.

Turner Classic Movies Online

Gritty, clever, breathlessly paced, and dynamic despite the dark shadow of doom cast over the story, this sci-fi thriller remains one of the defining American films of the 1980s.

It's a work of pulp art to see the future guv of California rip out someone's heart.

Top Critic IconTop Critic

As for Schwarzenegger, he nicely fleshes out the convention of a soulless gun for hire. With his choppy hair, cryptic shades and state-of-the-'80s leather ensemble, he looks like the Incredible Hulk gone punk.

Groucho Reviews

A cyberpunk picture that flirts with emotional resonance but mostly focuses on the gut...testosterone-fueled, estrogen-boosted action melodrama.

James Cameron's fast-paced, downright propulsive directorial sensibilities ensure that there are few lulls within the narrative.
