A seemingly indestructible humanoid cyborg is sent from 2029 to 1984 to assassinate a waitress, whose unborn son will lead humanity in a war against the machines, while a soldier from that war is sent to protect her at all costs.
Kyle Reese tells Sarah Connor that he would die for John Connor. In Terminator Genisys (2015) he does the reverse; he tells John he would die for Sarah.
What the hell? Goddamn son of a bitch...
May 12 1984 fell on a Saturday and not a Thursday, like a police officer tells Reece near the start.
The opening credits run while large outlines of the two halves of THE TERMINATOR cross each other. After the last directorial credit is shown, the title THE TERMINATOR zooms backward, is filled by metallic blue, and reveals itself.
