Interesting featurette
16 April 2001 | by See all my reviews

This is a quite interesting behind-the-scenes look of one of the best sci-fi films of all time. We get some nice interviews with the cast and crew and some good behind-the-scenes footage. Particulary interesting is a segment which shows the filming of the scene where Sarah and Kyle are chased by the Terminator down an alleyway and Arnie's subsequent attack.

It reveals that the scene took two nights to film and also shows how they achieved the effect where the Terminator smashes his arm through the wind screen to try and get at Sarah. Overall, a good documentary which shows what film making is like. It's a bit of a shame that it was not included on the recent Region 2 release of the film but with the amount of extras and the excellent hour long documentary ' Other Voices', this is not such a great loss.
