"Terminator" Movie Review Essay & Film Analysis

"-And revolted Machines from the ashes of nuclear fire, and went to war to destroy mankind ..." (c)
So 31 years ago was the beginning of one of the greatest franchises in the history of world cinema. The truth 1984th this one does not even know, probably even the James Cameron did not suspect that his fiction thriller about the indestructibility of cyborg - killer from the future, not much is not enough - to make history shooter genre, leaving the reserve for the creation of countless sequels and spin-offs of his, doomed soon to become iconic creations ... For most moviegoers the most favorite is the recognized classics of the genre, "Judgment Day" - the second, released after 7 years after the original tape, and forever changed the Hollywood Entertain flax cinema film about the confrontation between people and machines. It is possible to recognize the best in the whole film - series, although certainly there are those Puritans would prefer superblokbastera 1991st - small, compact evil thriller in neon shades. And to understand these audiences as possible - in the first "Terminator" concentrated incredible, almost electrified energy all movie 80th. This playful installation, and synthetic music, and technical visual effects, as well as the theme of a military confrontation between the superpowers during the Cold War. In addition, there are clear references to George Orwell with his "1984". A kind of "chip" of the film is the story and its looped - the future is impossible without the past, while being past present itself creates the possibility of a future. Plus the bright, catchy songs disco era - along with intense and accurate game actors involved in the project and outstanding directing unsurpassed luminary commercial American cinema James Cameron, all these components create one of the most memorable films in history. Personally in my opinion, "Terminator 2" surpasses the first part of almost all indicators, especially the main - visual effects. Continuing along with advanced technical special effects, the creators have used high-quality computer graphics, which at that time only - has just appeared, and began to seep into the Hollywood movie ...
Today, it is almost impossible to believe, but shot "Terminator" was susche for pennies, even at the time - it was worth the entire film which is $ 6.5 million! He assembled a team of professionals in burning this project: the writers hives Uisher-ml. and Gale Anne Hurd with self-perfectionist director James Cameron (just starting their glorious path) - wrote a compelling, dramatic and chilling story, based on a bad dream, narrated by Cameron. Little known at the time the actors Michael Biehn, Linda Hamilton and awake after the real star of the action genre, Arnold Schwarzenegger (previously known in the US mainly due to its outstanding achievement in sports, as well as the role of Conon - the barbarian in the eponymous film) - have played their roles very convincingly . This is especially true incredibly organically blended into the image of the unconscious cyborg T-800 Model 101 Schwarzenegger, who entered the history of cinema as an indestructible killing machine - a powerful bully punk jacket in dark glasses with automatic pistols at the ready. Despite the reticence and the negative role of this charismatic character was his brutal directness, and remember the audience even more than the main goodies. It is true then James Cameron "cheated" by dragging the T-800 "on the bright side," making of the sequel to the legendary quarterback of the future is already the leader of mankind in the war machines of people John Connor. However it stands for loyalty still be noted that in the second half it was a completely different robot - just the same model, and a major film star - Arnold Schwarzenegger to the already firmly entrenched in the rank of a steep hero - alone and could no longer play a negative role in a similar pattern. And, honestly admit - to be the savior of the world "steel Arnie" Yet there is a more than to be its destroyer ...
just curious where the franchise will move on, after the newly released "Genesis" is actually copied this, has become for many years for the universe of "Terminator" canonical history. However, while the "aged" T-800 has not yet figured out with his "young" version, and arrived in the cold - neon th 1984 from a distant, post-apocalyptic 2029th cyborg tearing a page from the phone book goes in search of Sarah Connor; and sent into the past of her son John Resistance soldier Kyle Reese - in turn, tries to save her ... But is there not people Saw this famous painting, what would I retell this classic story ?! I am sure that there are none. Therefore, from the description of the plot to proceed directly to the creation of the film.
first "Terminator" is more than a hybrid of science fiction, thriller and "paranoid" thriller, in contrast to the subsequent parts of the saga of the war against the machines of people. And the emphasis Cameron did not on the action component of the picture (we have to admit, it made for its time, just brilliant, especially in the great sequel), and the story itself; giving it some philosophical tuning forks, and is closer to the open final turning into a kind of parable about something gloomy, what's coming in the future, and that can not be changed ... In the second film, Cameron has changed the plot of the film - the characters are now able to change the frightening future and prevent war. But along with this story virtually disappeared from the horror element, which was the original tape. Starting from the "Rise of the Machines," the authors developed the concept of possible sequels made in the first place a bet on the spectacular engineering design capabilities, thus making intelligent science fiction film in purely entertainment, to keep on the cutting-edge special effects action movie. Because the second plan was pushed as a scenario problem of paintings and cast casting for the lead roles. In fact, Arnold Schwarzenegger is the only one who has appeared in all five scenes, and that if you count his "painted on" for a spectacular episode - Comeau on a computer person for "Savior" - the only film series, the plot of which takes place entirely in the future, during this the most wars of men and machines. All other doers always varied from batch to batch, thereby making it difficult to take the saga as a whole. The fifth film in an attempt to break this harmful tradition decided to focus on a scenario that resulted in little to restart the franchise. And though it happened only in name only, so to speak throughout the film - TV series, after "Genesis" "Terminator" has gone on a new, unknown path "variability" of universes. There were many questions, chief among which is the same - when at last falls "Skynet". Meanwhile, in anticipation of the continuation of a good reason to review the entire series.
