Director Bio

James Cameron (b. 1954) is a Canadian director, producer and screenwriter. He first found major success with the science fiction action film The Terminator (1984). He later won the Academy Award for Best Director and the Golden Globes Award for Best Director for his work on Titanic (1997).

Body

James Cameron’s classic tale of a time-travelling cybernetic assassin sent back from the future to prevent a man from ever being born. With tremendous performances from Arnold Schwarzenegger, Linda Hamilton and Michael Biehn, Cameron’s action-packed science fiction thriller is truly one of the all-time greats. As with Videodrome, the integral special-effects, here created by the late Stan Winston, are still both impressive and effective, the iconic steel skeleton of The Terminator cleverly designed, much like the film itself, to retain its grim authenticity forever.
