The Terminator

A cyborg is sent from the future to present-day Los Angeles on a deadly mission. He's got to kill a young woman whose life will have great significance in decades to come. Also sent back in time is a young but hardened guerilla fighter who must protect this unsuspecting victim. Superior action picture never lets up for a minute - a model for others to follow. Arnold Schwarzenegger is perfectly cast as the violence-prone robot that cannot be stopped.
