Product Description

Amazon.ca

This is the film that cemented Schwarzenegger's spot in the action-brawn firmament, and it was well deserved. He's chilling as the futuristic cyborg who kills without fear, without love, without mercy. James Cameron's story and direction are pared to the bone and all the more creepy. But don't overlook the contributions of Linda Hamilton, who more than holds her own as the Terminator's would-be victim, Sarah Connor--thus creating, along with Sigourney Weaver in Alien, a new generation of rugged, clear-thinking female action stars. It's surprising how well this film holds up, and how its minimalist, malevolent violence is actually way scarier than that of its far more expensive, more effects-laden sequel. --Anne Hurley

1.0 out of 5 stars Blu RAY Rip OFF May 13 2009
Format:Blu-ray
Don't be deceived by the new cover. This "new release" with a new cover is THE SAME terrible blu-ray disc previously released by MGM. The video quality is awful. Shame on those who practice the art of deception and get away with it. Now you have been warned.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Idea - Superbly Executed! Feb. 3 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
If you haven't seen this I definitely recommend the film to any science-fiction fan.

As for the Blu Ray release in question here, everything is well-updated from earlier DVD releases.

Sharp, clear and an overall great effort on the transfer.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Movie is a Must-Have Nov. 6 2011
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
There have been so many iterations and "editions" of this and the second movie, it's actually hard to keep track. . of which edition has what OR the amount of money left in your pocket after you buy every single edition known to man. What I can say about this particular installment is; if you don't own this first movie on blu-ray yet, this version is definitely worth it. I'm a big fan of the "plus book" edition's. The quality of the information inside can vary from awesome-for-just-a-movie-keepsake, to yeah-I-knew-that-already if you're already a fan of the movie. I would have to say this one here lacks any real trivia or lesser-known facts about the movie, but does include a nice, short essay about sci-fi movies and where the Terminator ranks and how it "changed Hollywood forever".
I won't bother reviewing the movie. If you haven't seen, why in the hell would you be reading this when you could be watching a classic movie you've never seen before?!?
But I will touch on the transfer of this movie. I only own one version of this movie on DVD (as opposed to the four I have of the sequel) that came out years upon years ago when DVD was a relatively new thing, and MGM still a big company and had the rights of movies to sell them. It was better than the used VHS copy i had, but not by much. The 5.1 surround was "awesome" for the time, but listening to it now is almost painful.
This blu-ray is absolutely fantastic! The movie does not look as old as it is, but does not suffer from any real edge enhancement that is so popular today for some reason. The soundtrack is now uncompressed 5.1, and although some of the special effects might sound just a tad "dated", there's depth and feel to the music/speech/effects that were not there in the DVD from over a decade ago.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ah-nold's success assured Nov. 18 2012
By Robert Badgley TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
The Terminator(released Oct/84)was Schwarzenegger's cementing of his acting career to the highest heights of the action genre.It was a fast paced,thrill ride and he played his part of a cyborg killing machine,right down the middle.Starring along with him was Linda Hamilton as Sarah Connor,Michael Biehn as Kyle Reese,Paul Winfield as Ed Traxler,Lance Henriksen as Hal Vukovich,and others.Henriksen would go onto star in director Cameron's Alien 2,along with Cameron`s friend Bill Paxton,who can be seen as the punk with the spiked hair outside the Griffith Observatory near the beginning.
The world of the future on 2029 Earth has machines battling humans.A defense system created by Cyberdine systems for the U.S.Government,became more powerful than anyone could have imagined.The system eventually turned on humans in general,and thus began mankind`s battle back to reclaim the earth from machines.When all seemed lost for the humans,one John Connor inspired the people to never give up and the resistance spread far and wide,and much stronger than before.The machines decided in order to completely wipe out the resistance movement,they would send one of their own back in time to kill John's mother,Sarah.And so they sent a cyborg(Schwarzenegger),who suddenly appears naked on the street,amidst bolts of static electricity.The resistance learns of their plans and sends one of their own back to protect her,Kyle Reese(Biehn).
In 1984 Sarah is not married and lives with a roommate.Suddenly other Sarah Connors in the L.A. area start getting killed one by one.When she is the only one left she gets worried and calls the police for protection.However the cyborg sent to kill her is hot on her trail and is now stalking her in the very club she awaits for a police escort in.

3.0 out of 5 stars He'll be back... June 7 2009
Format:DVD
I had seen numbers 2 and 3 of the series but not this one and so was interested in going back to the origins after watching the latest installment: Terminator Salvation. I understand now why it was critically praised and strong enough to launch a franchise. It also helped very much into understanding some aspects of the last film. Actually, the first Terminator struck me at how internally logical it was in its fictional concept which is not an easy thing to do considering the inherent pratfalls whenever time travel is involved. It just consistently made sense compared to the plot holes of Salvation.

The action was obviously much lower-budget but it felt right and it looked good. The director James Cameron filmed some very effective stunts that still hold up today. You could always tell what was going on and follow the action. The terminator was an imposing menacing presence. Arnold Schwarzenegger in the title role played it without showing any emotion (which makes sense) while his massive physique, ponderous movements and plastic looks (he does look artificial sometimes!) sell the character. You could nitpick that the head of Arnold was obviously replaced by a fake head sometimes (mirror scene) but weirdly it kinda worked anyway into making him more creepy. The other main roles, Sarah Connor and Reese, were played just right showing enough emotion without going into overexagerated melodrama. They were believable and likable.

Since I already knew most of the twists, from having seen the later movies, it is difficult for me to comment on them. However, I must say they were well implemented and must surely have been effective back then. The story was quite interesting and the glimpses of the future were particularly engrossing.
