Storyline

In the future world of the year 2087, freedom of thought is illegal and the thoughts of the world's populations are controlled by the government. A small band of "free thinkers" send a cyborg back in time to the year 1966 to prevent a scientist from making the breakthrough that will eventually lead to the mass thought control of the future. Our time traveler soon discovers he is not alone when government agents from the future try to prevent him from carrying out his mission. Written by Kevin Steinhauer <K.Steinhauer@BoM.GOV.AU>

Goofs

Before Garth A7's (Michael Rennie) time capsule appears in 1966, the grass in the distance is in bright sunlight and the foreground is in the dark shadow of a tree. An "instant" later, when the capsule appears, the tree shadow is gone and the entire scene is clearly overcast, showing that a significant portion of the day has actually passed. See more »

Origin of The Terminator
14 February 2001 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

Let's see... Michael Rennie plays a cyborg. He is sent back in time by rebels to prevent a scientist from inventing a device that will have an impact upon the future by enslaving mankind. In turn, Rennie is being chased by agents from the future who are intent that he does not complete his mission. A woman in the present day begins to fall for Rennie. Sounds awful familiar to me. The music, as noted by the other comment, will have you rolling, it's from Saturday morning cartoons, you're almost expecting that Hanna-Barbera sound effect when someone starts running. Still, the movie has an above average cast for its low-budget, Michael Rennie, Karen Steele, Eduard Franz (the Jonathan Drake of "Four Skulls of Jonathan Drake"), Harry Carey, Jr., Warren Stevens (Forbidden Planet), Wendell Corey, and even future M*A*S*H star and Mrs. Chuck Woolery, Jo Ann Pflug can be glimpsed.
