This is one hell of a ruthless chase movie, I mean it's entirely unrelenting and it's really an intense ride. We meet a timid waitress named Sarah Connor who learns that someone is shooting down people with her name from the phone book. Of course we learn it's actually an evil Terminator sent from the future to take her out so the machines will win a future battle. There isn't just one Terminator though as Arnold was sent back from the future also to protect John (Sarah's son) so expect lots of machine dueling! The effects are amazing, it's truly action packed and exciting from the moment it begins until the last battle. It really sets up the series perfectly, and well It's my personal favorite of the series even though the effects and action are maybe better in the 2nd one, it just doesn't have the spirit of this.

Availability:  On DVD & Blu-Ray
