The Terminator

The Terminator ★★★★½

With a production budget of twenty-eight dollars, James Cameron managed to create one of the most enduring sci-fi films of all time. In addition to the brilliant premise, there's a seductively hardcore brutality enveloping all of the action. Schwarzenegger murders a lot of motherfuckers in this and at no point does any of the violence feel gratuitous. As a result, this unstoppable killer robot from the future always feels like an unstoppable killer robot from the future.
