While this Terminator is percent dead, Schwarzenegger returns in Dark Fate as another robot of the same make and model.

All The Terminator Movies Ranked, Including Dark Fate

The result is a classic Arnie sci-fi flick called The Running Man. Arnold, of course, has been falsely accused.

Loosely based on Philip K. But, wait, his wife Sharon Stone! There are only a few sequels that are arguably as good — if not better — than their predecessors. Terminator 2: Judgement Day , however, is one of those movies. An action-packed science-fiction adventure that contains James Cameron's trademark talents for spectacle and intelligence in equal measures, this sequel raises the stakes a gigantic way and changes enough elements while still staying true to the foundations of this sci-fi franchise.

By changing Arnold Schwarzenegger from the menace to the father figure, it was a risk that paid off handsomely, giving Arnold a chance to prove his charisma even more than before while also benefitting the expanding story in a major way. The result is a brilliant switch-up with a big payoff to boot.

Indeed, it's rare to find a sequel that lives up to the original, and this is one of the very few exceptions. Not even the other Terminator sequels can say they do the same. In most people's views, there is only one good Terminator sequel, and this is it. Hopefully, maybe Terminator: Dark Fate can finally provide moviegoers with the respectful follow-up they've been craving after all this time. Whether or not that's true, at least we have this sequel. It's hard to pick between Terminator 1 and Terminator 2 , but since the first Terminator movie is the one that truly turned Arnold Schwarzenegger into a major movie star, I think it gets the slight edge this time around.

Though, this matter is certainly up for debate, since they're both really strong action films that excel in their own ways. Yet, when it comes to Arnold Schwarzenegger's incredible run as an action hero, this is where his big legacy truly started. After several years of trying to establish himself as a movie star after his years as a bodybuilder, it took young filmmaker James Cameron and his low-budget sci-fi horror movie to truly capitalize on Arnold Schwarzenegger's charisma and on-screen presence and turn it into an incredible asset, one that is both highly memorable and, in the right scenes here, completely menacing.

Arnold Schwarzenegger is a silent-but-lethal opposition, one with a critical desire to kill or be killed when it comes to murdering Sarah Conner. It is a premise that could've been hokey and corny, but Arnold's looming presence sells the magnitude of the situation, giving this larger-than-life figure a real flesh-and-blood demeanor that hides the character's mechanical emptiness. It is with this movie that we first heard the quote "I'll be back.

Now, we would be remiss if we didn't bring up a few titles that didn't make the cut. For instance, The Expendables movies are notable, but none were included here because they really are more ensemble pieces than Arnold Schwarzenegger movies. At least, in my opinion. Arnold only has a single scene in the first movie, and he mostly works as glorified cameos in the sequels as well.

Similar logic goes for another cameo appearances in The Long Goodbye which is easily one of his best movies, but not really his movie , Dave , The Rundown , and several other titles. They might feature Arnold Schwarzenegger, but they are not his movies, per se.

I don't consider either of them to be the actor's finest hour, but there is enjoyable value to be found in their oversized performances. It should also be noted that Arnold Schwarzenegger has given two strong dramatic performances in two recent indie films: Maggie and Aftermath. Unfortunately, I consider the actor miscast in both roles, though I do applaud Arnold for trying to work outside his usual comfort zone, hoping to challenge himself with new, stirring performances — even if they do not quite work. Also, Killing Gunther , Arnold Schwarzenegger's latest film, isn't necessarily a winner, but it does feature one of Arnold Schwarzengger's most enjoyable performances in years.

He only appears in the movie's final few moments, even though he plays the title character, but he's an absolute hoot in the film. While I'd be hard-pressed to recommend the film in full, his hilariously ridiculous performance confirms that Arnold still has great comedy chops.

These are just one person's picks, and we would love to hear what you have to say about Arnold Schwarzenegger's work.
