How Terminator Defined Action Movies (subtitled How Terminator defined ACTION!) is the 5th episode of Frame by Frame and its one-off episode on Terminator on The Film Theorists.

Description Edit

We all know that The Terminator and Terminator 2 are icons in the 80's and 90's action movie canon, but are we sure they're actually ACTION movies? Believe it or not, there's a pretty strict set of criteria that a film needs to meet to qualify in the action genre based on the way it's filmed, how very specific scenes are set up, and basically how big the explosions are! This Frame by Frame takes a look up close and personal with the Terminator scenes we love to see how they stack up against the high bar that's set for the best action films! Hasta la vista, baby!
