Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: This is a monster movie, and the monster's role fits Mr. Schwarzenegger just fine. – Janet Maslin, New York Times, Apr 1, 2014

Fresh: As for Schwarzenegger, he nicely fleshes out the convention of a soulless gun for hire. With his choppy hair, cryptic shades and state-of-the-'80s leather ensemble, he looks like the Incredible Hulk gone punk. – Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: The Terminator is a blazing, cinematic comic book, full of virtuoso moviemaking, terrific momentum, solid performances and a compelling story. – Variety Staff, Variety, Apr 1, 2014

Fresh: The havoc makes for a genuine steel metal trap of a movie that may very well be the best picture of its kind since The Road Warrior. – Kirk Ellis, Hollywood Reporter, Oct 3, 2015
