The Terminator (1984)
Review by Bradley Frohloff

8 / 10
Arnold Schwarzenegger finds the perfect role as a cyborg with his impressive bodybuilding physique and limited range of vocal expression. The plot is detailed enough to make you think but still easy enough for the layman's to follow. The 80's scenery, music and hair-doos do provide the movie with a certain retro charm although it does result in the movie looking a bit dated more now than some other movies from the 80's. The ending sequences in the factory are still quite intimidating, even with the outdated stop motion effects.

The Terminator is a great action film for its time although the sequel trumps it in pretty much every single aspect.
