Memorable Movie Scenes: Part 29

Movie: The Terminator

The Terminator is one of my favorite movies of all time, and my review reflects that. As far as science fiction action movies it’s up there with the sequel T2, Aliens, The Thing and both Blade Runner movies.

This great film is filled to the brim with action and unforgettable one-liners, but there is one that immortalized Arnold Schwarzenegger forever. Yes, this is the memorable scene at the police station where Sarah Connor is guaranteed to be “safe”.

“I’ll Be Back”

Arnold rarely made promises that he could not fulfill, and a routine visit to a police station quickly turned into the most violent and deadly assault on the Men in Blue in cinema history. In his relentless mission to eliminate Sarah Connor, The Terminator crashed his auto through the front desk at the police station and methodically mowed down at least 17 of the 30 police officers present.

Somehow Sarah Connor escapes with the help of Kyle Reese, who had been sent from the future to try to neutralize The Terminator. Good luck with that. The carnage at the police station was just a harbinger of things to come as the assassin machine of the future would always “Be Back” for the hunted.
