What the hell? Goddamn son of a bitch...
Obvious stunt double for the Terminator when he pulls a sharp u-turn in the police car.
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.
