Best of the Terminator movies. In my opinion, they should have stopped right here and not bothered with the sequels. Arnold at his best....minimal dialog and lots of action. "I'll be back."
What I like about this movie:
Sarah Connor changes from a wimpy, insecure girl to a powerful, determined woman.
The concept of time travel and the weird logic of Sarah and Reese's relationship.
The scene where the cops think Reese is a paranoid schizophrenic as he tells them his story. Yeah, it does sound crazy.
Great chase scenes...just when you start to take a breath, the action picks back up. Edge of your seat the whole time.
The burning truck scene where the Terminator rises from the flames as a metalic skeleton and keeps on coming after her.
The scene where Sarah terminates the Terminator. The red eye powers down. Finally!
The photograph scene with the Mexican boy at the end of the movie...perfect full-circle twist.
