Intriguing trip into humanity
By Hessiar on Nov, 10 2015 | See all reviews by Hessiar
Terminator movie is a still a hit. The story of time travel is fascinating. It has become a typical atopia scenario, that the machines take control of man. But this film was is certainly one of the best there is. Schwarzenegger's performance is great and the tension is high. Terminator seems so indestructible, but in the end is finally destroyed.
The story where Sarah Connor finds out, that she will have a son, who will be a crucial person in the fight against the machines, is ingenious. She becomes a fighter herself and finds a courage, she did not know existed inside her. Time travel is a mystery and makes the imagination fly. The viewer stops to wonder, what does it mean to be human. If you have not seen the movie, watch it.
