The Terminator Reviews

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.

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

As a souvenir of a kind of B-grade action cinema that has all but vanished, The Terminator should find a small place in the heart of every movie addict.

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

This is a monster movie, and the monster's role fits Mr. Schwarzenegger just fine.

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

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