Notebook Reviews: THE TERMINATOR
James Cameron – 1984
The Terminator is tight, taut and tense. James Cameron‘s low budget actioner is near perfect.
The 1984 scf-fi thriller marked the first collaboration between the director and Arnold Schwarzenegger and the duo have never been better. The tension is great and all of the set pieces are wonderful – especially the police station shootout. Praise must also go to Linda Hamilton and Michael Biehn – they both add humanity to Cameron’s film.
One of the all-time great action movies.
