My Experience: I had little interest in seeing this movie until a friend of mine convinced me to watch Terminator 2. Then I just had to watch the prequel. At first I was a little disappointed, used to the high energy of the sequel. But upon repeated viewings, I came to love the first movie as a horror flick. It’s darker, more subtle. Hamilton plays a pretty realistic heroine who uses only her desperation to try to survive and barely doing that given her limited acumen in cyborg killing. The soundtrack by Brad Fiedel is amazing, creepy while watching the movie, yet pleasant outside of it.
As a result of this movie I’m always a little nervous around a hydraulic press.
