It may not be the classic T2 ended up being, but the original Terminator is still a great sci-fi movie in its own right.

"I'll Be Back!" This was Arnold Schwarzenegger favourite phrase of the terminator movies. It had Awful Soundtrack but that's just the 80's. which is good because at least it's Exciting and worth a watch and you don't even have to waste your time.
This is the best 80's Arnold Schwarzenegger movie i have ever seen,
The Rating is 100% and i have to say, It really is that good!
One Last Thing: Arnold Schwarzenegger carries so many Guns to kill a lady named Sarah, And It's a purpose of the terminator becoming a Real Life Killing Machine!

Score: 10/10

For the rest of time, this movie will be known as one of the best films of all time. It was this film that sparked James Cameron to fame. Still the best of the whole series. Even if Terminator 2 was awesome, it can't beat this.

The Terminator is my favorite villain for many reasons, and all are clearly explained in this film. The future war is something that could actually happen, based on the amount of technology we have nowadays. Not to mention that a famous movie quote comes from this film, one which Arnold Schwarzenegger has used in many other films in his career after this one, parodying the tone of it.

I loved it! It had a lot of action in it! But all the naked scenes... yuck! I am 8, do think I like it? No!!!!! But do rate it 4 stars because it has some spooky parts. Like the part at the end, when there getting chased by the Terminator in the factory. The other reason I rated it 4 stars is because of the whole "Your Terminatated F*cker" thing. It is inappropriate for kids watching the movie! Well, it is already a inappropriate movie, I already established that there are naked scenes in this movie. But overall, I love it!!!

A classic tale of robot trying to do his job and a jerk human getting in the way. IT Support at its worst.

One of the most masterful pieces of casting ever recorded, with less than 100 words of dialogue for the primary character was all it took to create major stars out of the lead actor & director. Cameron's film has long since been copied & glossed over that people have almost forgotten what an innovative concept the original 'Terminator' was upon its initial release. Fast-paced, well-written, with a unique vibe that keeps you slightly off-balance from start-to-finish. Essential viewing!

Only outdated special effects hampers it.

Well shot and dramatically written. Unfortunately, there was the one unnecessary sex scene that ruined it for me.

Surprisingly very good action/science-fiction movie, has a really great story to back up the movie as well. My only complaint was the amount of violence and gore, I have no problem with gore, but in a few scenes it was just too difficult to keep on watching. Also, the movie feels tiresome at a few points, but it was never too big of a problem for me to stop watching the movie.

A great action film that mixes sci-fi\action with horror\thriller. If you can ignore the low-budget effects it's a must see for fans of the genre!

A timeless classic! :)

James Cameron, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Linda Hamilton, and everyone involved with this film at their finest. One of my favorite action/horror/thriller/sci-fi flicks ever! Everyone should see this film, great story, practical effects, characters, writing, etc. Even Bill Paxton's tire skid mark on his face was pleasant lol. In my opinion it is a perfect movie. 5/5

p.s. did u know O.J. Simpson was originally cast as the terminator? lmfao ??????

It's probably the best sci-fi movie of all time

The Terminator is the first of the epic science fiction terminator series. This movie is fantastic. This cyberpunk/noir film is close to if not perfect. The film has a fantastic cast who deliver excellent performances. Arnold is the perfect casting choice to play the now iconic and indestructible villain. The movie has great suspense, amazing action sequences and a fantastic sound track that perfectly matches the tone and feel of the film as well as has one of the most iconic theme songs ever created. The movie is not only a great film but delivers a great message about war and the consequences of it and how it could effect the future of mankind as well as shows us a glimpse of the bleak but possible post apocalyptic future. 5/5

"The Terminator" is a fabulous beginning to an incredibly influential science fiction saga. Taut, emotional, and impressive to this day, James Cameron's epic original remains a cut above the rest.
