Arnold Schwarzenegger: the roles that have marked his career from Conan to Terminator

There is someone who deserves special treatment today and that we remember his most outstanding roles in the world of cinema, an actor (although more than an actor, he is a legend), premieres with the series on Netflix. We talk about Arnold Schwarzenegger who stars in ‘FUBAR’, the new fiction that has just landed at the streaming giant and is already available.

In his role, Arnold reappears on the small screen becoming a spy where adventures and comedy are more than guaranteed.

But the premiere of ‘FUBAR’ is just the excuse to talk, as it deserves, about the brilliant trail that he has left in the world of cinema and the most outstanding films where he has played a leading role. From ‘Conar the barbarian’ until the invincible ‘Terminator’, These are the films that have marked the career of one of the most important stars in the history of Hollywood.

‘Conan the Barbarian’ (1982)

‘Conan the Barbarian’ is more than just an American sword and sorcery movie. Arnold debuted in the cinema with a main role getting into the skin of a barbarian named Conan who seeks revenge for the death of his parents at the hands of Thulsa Doom, the leader of a cult that worships snakes. The protagonist has witnessed how his enemy, after ending the life of his loved ones, threw his dogs at his father and decapitated his mother. He will do the impossible to do justice and end Thulsa and his army so powerful of him.

‘Terminator’ (1984)

How could it be otherwise, the first part of the ‘Terminator’ saga cannot be missing from Schwarzenegger’s most outstanding films. James Cameron he bet on the actor to play this invincible and muscular beast in a futuristic environment. Terminator was a character in part human and part machine that comes from the future in which machines dominate humanity. Her journey through time has a clear objective: to kill Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton), a young woman whose destiny has great relevance in the future.

Beyond the, ahem, 'creative loans' (to Philip K. Dick, and to a Harlan Ellison who took the Canadian to court), Cameron's first film as an author is one of the best 'actioners' in history, and also a document on the Cold War and the terror of the military-industrial complex.  With 17 lines of dialogue, Schwarzenegger became our favorite personification of the Apocalypse.

‘Terminator 2: Judgment Day’ (1991)

One of the highest grossing films in history and one of the most associated with Schwarzenegger. In this second part, James Cameron follows the story line as a sequel to the first installment. The Last Judgment follows the story of Sarah Connor and his ten-year-old son John as they are chased by a T-1000, a more advanced Terminator than the one in the previous film; made of liquid metal and able to mold himself to his liking, he is sent back in time to kill John Connor and prevent him from becoming a leader of ‘human resistance’.

But fiction could not miss a second Terminator not so developed, (Schwarzenegger) who is also sent to save the life of this child.
