The invincible cyborg-assassin known as the “Terminator” is sent back from a dismal 2029–where the cold machines have controlled the whole world—to 1984 Los Angeles to begin his lethal mission to assassinate humanity’s most important woman: the unsuspecting Sarah Connor. However, from the same war-torn post-apocalyptic future emerges a battle-scarred defender—Kyle Reese, a valiant member of the human Resistance Army—who is determined to stop the cybernetic killer from murdering the world’s final chance. But the Terminator has no sympathies, he doesn’t sleep, and most importantly, he won’t stop until he completes his dreadful duty. Is our future rooted in our past?
