Triple Feature: THE TERMINATOR, 1984, 108 min. "I’ll be back," growls metal-machine Arnold Schwarzenegger - and James Cameron’s career kicked into overdrive with this story of a cyborg killer from the future tracking down human prey Linda Hamilton. Shot on a very lean budget of $6.5 million, with excellent F/X by Stan Winston and Fantasy II, THE TERMINATOR is pulp sci-fi at its very best.
TERMINATOR 2: JUDGMENT DAY, 1991, 136 min. "A violent movie about world peace" is how James Cameron described this high-octane sequel to the original TERMINATOR. Terminator Arnold Schwarzenegger is an obsolete killer, sent back as guardian to Linda Hamilton and teenage son Edward Furlong.
TERMINATOR 3: RISE OF THE MACHINES, 2003, 109 min. Dir. Jonathan Mostow. Female terminator Kristanna Loken arrives from the future to try to kill young John Connor once and for all - but she's going to have to fight off Arnold Schwarzenegger's T-101 to get to him. Full synopsis
