Part man, part machine, the Terminator is sent back to present-day Earth to kill Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton), a young woman whose life will have great significance in the years to come.

The fate of the world lies with two humans who must defeat an unstoppable killing machine—the Terminator.
In 1984, writer/director James Cameron brought two warriors from a nuclear war-ravaged future to battle over the life of a young woman whose yet-unborn son will become the savior of mankind. Sarah Connor is the target of a killer cyborg from the year 2029 that has been sent to win a war against humanity by destroying her. All that stands between her and the Terminator is a young soldier sent back through time to protect her in this explosive action classic.HBO Video
