Dedicated fans of the Terminator are sure to have watched the movie many times since it was originally released. Even those who eat, sleep, and breath the franchise may not know everything. Here are some cool Terminator facts that you can use to impress your friends.
Sarah Connor is nineteen years of age in the first Terminator movie. However, we don’t really know this for sure until the sequel, and even then only in a very obscure way. In Terminator 2: Judgment Day, which was released in 1991, Dr. Silberman reveals that Sarah Connor is twenty nine years old and her son is currently ten years old, which means that she must have been 19 when the action of the first movie took place.
It seems that many people have trouble deciding whether the Terminator character is actually a hero or a villain. In the list created by the American Film Institute of the one hundred Heroes and Villains, the Terminator is listed as both a hero and villain.
Laser Products Corporation specially created the now iconic laser sight that can be seen on the .45 Longslide for the Terminator movie. This was actually one of the first laser aimed weapons to appear on the big screen and the assembly was incomplete so that the wires that ran into the relatively huge battery pack was hidden under the sleeve of Arnold Schwarzenegger.
One of the cool things about the movie is that the audience is treated to views through the Terminator’s vision. This allows us to see the world in his way to some extend and gives the character more depth. Many people may not be aware of it, but the code that is displayed is actually for the Apple II operating system and people who own an Apple II can enjoy Terminator vision any time they want simply by entering call -151 * p at the basic prompt.
In the first Terminator movie, Arnold Schwarzenegger was only given fourteen lines, which was even less than in his previous movie Conan the Barbarian where he was given twenty four lines in the whole movie.
