The Terminator

In Films

A human soldier is sent from 2029 to 1984 to stop an almost indestructible cyborg killing machine, sent from the same year, which has been programmed to execute a young woman whose unborn son is the key to humanity’s future salvation.

After 31 years, James Cameron’s sensational sci-fi thriller stands up tremendously well with outrageous verve, blistering excitement.
