Reviewed here this masterpiece. Not going to repeat the hundreds of laudatory comments and focus on the main, although it is certainly many times wrote. As the Matrix, Terminator is not just a cool action movie. It is a philosophical story, imbued with deep mystical symbolism. There is a supercomputer-Satan, suffering a death that embodies a destiny, and an invincible, all-powerful evil. But if the Matrix, the Central theme is the spiritual transformation of the human person, it here — the theme of fate and choice. In Christianity is a paradoxical combination of divine Providence and freedom of choice. The film brilliantly renders the paradox — the future is predetermined, but it is the result of free will Reese.

Yes, our world world of suffering. But it has something more. Subtle energy of time, which is the basis of existence. And higher understanding of the nature of being and of consciousness and is love. To overcome all the horror of destiny to fulfill their purpose in the Grand tragedy of the Universe, and go to the world of absolute freedom, light and happiness. Our world's door, no door can not pass, as hard as it was not. And go to the picks up the inconceivable spirit of fate time, guided by the heart and the internal part of the absolute.

I can not to celebrate the industrial aesthetic of the film. All these factories, machines, trucks, motorcycles, servos. The artists paintings have surpassed themselves.

Although the second part of the Terminator is also great, yet it is inferior to the first, not mention the rest of the sequels (although they told me like, except for the Genesis). The terminator is a unique work of art, because true art is is a mystical experience. The terminator gives us the tragic existential nature of existence. But most importantly, it is encouraging. Because all has a beginning has and end.

No wonder I called the title of my review, as a cult film, because cult movies, cult filmmakers and cult actors never forget they will forever go down in the history of cinema. So this happened with the creation of legendary James Cameron Terminator. This film really can truly be considered legendary, so as date film on the very idea of the film still speak.

According to the legend the idea for the film and for writing the script came to Cameron at the time of his dream no matter how truthful this information, it is important that we got an amazing creature, unseen world in the first half of the eighties, Yes. besides with a very modest budget, also, James Cameron has made a considerable step forward the direction of innovation and technology, because many of the ideas it the period of time not able to implement, so as the special effects were not dostigli proper level.

Speaking of the main villain in the face of the cyborg assassin T-800 Arnold Schwarzenegger now it is impossible to imagine another actor for him, but after all, if Cameron was going to shoot in the role of the terminator absolutely another actor who would neither spoke, but this role is established Arnold true stardom, even taking into account the what he acted in the role of a negative character (by 1991 it will bring in his role as a cyborg killer to perfection). In this film cool gaze, its gestures, movements and mannerisms that are characteristic of the cyborg was brought to fear horror how it will inevitably and severely dealt with their victims, and his reticence gave it character an even greater effect.

Linda Hamilton in the role of Sarah Connor, the main goal of the terminator and mother of the future Savior of all mankind, her son John Connor. This innocent and weak girl to the end of the movie showed his character and showed that she is ready to fight and destroy the terminator.

Michael biehn in the role of Kyle Reese — the Savior of the future, sent by John Connor to protect his mother from the terminator.

All three actors embodied on the screen of these characters, and as Sarah Kyle — ordinary people, T-800 — not a person, but cybernetic organism, the combination the interaction of human and machine has been well demonstrated, from and the movie is a unique idea that terminator outwardly looks like a simple man.

The makeup, effects and decorations that time is really impressive (the scene in the hotel room, in which the terminator himself itself operates, proof).

Music in the film is atmospheric, the more main theme music is alive and to date.

Terminator — stunning sci-Fi Thriller-Thriller a truly talented and unique Director James Cameron.

So, I decided to reconsider the entire "Terminator" and started out as usual normal people, with the first part of that unknown reasons, many consider worse than the rest of the parts, with what I categorically not agree.

First, it is far the impression is difficult to convey in words. I remember the boyish delight and it was called any other special effects, is it and it flashed iron, the effect of bulletproofing all of this was a novelty, to deny the genius of the idea is simply impossible. I remember very well that as the inevitability, the terminator — is ideal for the murders, it is almost impossible to destroy, it will bring the matter to the this doubt is not necessary, it seemed that the courage is too small, overcoming this barrier, no one iron muscle does not falter, that not surprisingly, on it and terminator...

Watched the movie just yesterday, fresh, modern, and rather snickering eye. Yes, the special effects are weak, the acting is a bit chilled, some of the scenes action raises questions and confusion your sovetami mishaps, all that catches eyes. "The terminator" — the undisputed masterpiece of its time and a classic of the genre on all times — the weakness of the special effects can not be called a minus, just affected by the lack of any development of computer graphics, Cameron will prove it in the next part of that for the game of actors, here I have enough dashing from my beef is if is, only Schwarzenegger, but it to learn from their mistakes and he will also, prove, and here is the staging of action scenes, here, Yes, the impact of a scarcity of experience or skills, it as you wish, modern cinema in this plan got the hang of it, yeah and to be honest, there are films and that time is stronger in this incarnation.

But if you take not only the technical side, but and spiritual, that there are atmospheric, rarely any modern blockbuster is able to compete at this "the Terminator", to make you think all sorts of iron men and so forth, in comparison I understand that special effects, this is not it is only the income from rental, the main thing is soul and the desire to shoot for viewer, that's what makes the film a classic masterpiece, no no more less.

The main difference from which film wins this part from other, the terminator confronts the man, let a trained soldier, but he blood of the flesh, the force is clearly not equal, from this empathy is only strengthened. For all the oppositions of man and iron is very interesting to see, from the beginning of the film, the appearance of the characters and through.

If there are those people who some reason not seen this film, you know you missed a lot, but the main thread of events, so take a look and enjoy!

I wish you all a pleasant viewing!!!
