Although T2 had much better effects, The first Terminator will always be my favorite! Action, horror, romance---you'll find it all in the first Terminator. Great movie!... Full review

One heck of a joyride. One of the best time travel stories too. It has solid action, and respectable visuals for its time. Some of the acting can be cheesey at times, however it actually works for this film. James Cameron's... Full review

this movie is amazing.....Perhaps Cameron's vision of an apocalyptic battle between machine and man wasn't as improbable as it seemed.....Almost 20 years later the film is just as good as it was on opening day.....this movie is just kind of fun.....Thanks to his keen eye for a successful story, Cameron's films break box-office records.... ...

Bale delivers Salvation for Terminator series....Perhaps with a few dud lines here and there and with some poor or hasty editing, Salvation is not without its flaws.....Danny Elfman's aggressive score is fitting for a stark, sepia-toned nightmarescape where the fight for human survival is paramount.....engaging descent into the would-be future of the human race, weighing in some spectacular fight scenes and jaw-dropping special effect sequences..... ...

most classic sci-fi films are in fact twists on old genres.....Movie lovers lamented the announcement....Yelchin further cements his 'future Edward Norton' status, adding a solid performance that's remarkably like Michael Beihn's portrayal.....Nonetheless, excitable Charlie's Angels director McG was put in the director's chair and an impressive cast assembled.... ...
