Team FC

The Terminator (1984)

Arnold Schwarzenegger plays a cybernetic assassin, the Terminator, from 2029, who is sent back in time to kill Sarah Connor and protect Skynet, the AI, that takes over the world in the future in this action-packed film.

The Terminator 2: Judgement Day (1991)

One of the few sequels that are better than the original. Schwarzenegger plays the reprogrammed T-800 who is sent back in time to protect John Conner, the leader of the human resistance, from the T-1000 sent by Skynet. A true display of Hollywood's use of spectacle and anxieties around the development of technology.

Commando (1985)

Schwarzenegger is great as United States Army Special Forces Colonel John Matrix. The film has fantastic action sequences filled with machine guns and grenades balanced with emotional and humorous scenes.

Predator (1987)

In this Science fiction action thriller, Schwarzenegger plays the leader of a paramilitary rescue team who fights the predator, an alien creature, in the Central American rain forests.

Total Recall (1987)

One of the many Science Fiction films that Schwarzenegger has done. He plays a Martian double agent who is slowly recovering his memories of the past life on Mars while hostile agents try to prevent him from remembering his life.

Conan The Barbarian (1982)

Schwarzenegger is funny, charming and effective in this cult epic fantasy action film. He plays a barbarian warrior on a quest to take revenge for the death of his parents.

Last Action Hero (1993)

While not his best film or even a great film, the Last Action Hero is a meta action comedy which has a certain charm to it. Schwarzenegger plays a common man who gets transported into his favourite action film.
