Entertainment Weekly
Kineticism and suspense, combined with strongly conceived characters....Made Cameron a talent to watch. [13 Jan 1995, p. 67] Full Review
Jay Scott
The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
An efficient, cold-blooded sci-fi splatter movie that never makes the mistake of forgetting that on some level it is deeply ridiculous. Full Review
Luke Y. Thompson
Dallas Observer
The movie's scares are intense, but the notion that the Terminator would move on to politics is even more frightening. Full Review
