Synopsis: A cyborg is sent back in time to kill the mother of a rebel leader.
The effects, although cutting edge at the time, haven't aged well. The '80s thing is just plain scary. The Sarah Connor in this movie is nothing like the Sarah Connor in T2. And the whole premise is just wrong, dammit.
However, despite all that, it's a pretty good movie and worth watching. And hey, on the DVD, there's full frontal male nudity, Arnie-style.
Arnie was big, buff and bad. And despite the questionable plot twist it's a great movie that spawned an even better sequel. It was a cutting edge story with ground breaking effects but that distinctly 80's look made it age poorly. T2 is definitely better, but you'll still need this one for your collection.
Keep an eye out for Bill Paxton.Added 17 November 2003 at 8:15 PM
