Connor is the man responsible for the creation of the human resistance and credited with rescuing mankind from extinction by rallying survivors to combat Skynet’s forces.

But the final battle will not be fought in the future.
The Terminator 1984 Plot:-
In 1984 Los Angeles, a cyborg assassin known as a Terminator arrives from 2029 and steals clothes and guns. Kyle Reese, a human soldier sent back in time from the same year, arrives shortly afterward. He steals clothes and weapons and evades the police. The Terminator begins systematically killing women named Sarah Connor, whose addresses it finds in the telephone directory.
It tracks the last Sarah Connor to a nightclub, but Kyle rescues her. The pair steal a car and escape with the Terminator pursuing them in a police car. As they hide in a parking lot, Kyle explains to Sarah that an artificial intelligence defense network, known as Skynet, will become self-aware in the near future and initiate a nuclear holocaust. Sarah’s future son John will rally the survivors and lead a resistance movement against Skynet and its army of machines.
With the Resistance on the verge of victory, Skynet sent a Terminator back in time to kill Sarah before John is born, to prevent the formation of the Resistance. The Terminator, a Cyberdyne Systems Model 101, is an efficient killing machine with a powerful metal endoskeleton and an external layer of living tissue that makes it appear human. Kyle and Sarah are apprehended by police after another encounter with the Terminator.
Criminal psychologist Dr. Silberman concludes that Kyle is paranoid and delusional. The Terminator repairs its body and attacks the police station, killing seventeen police officers in its attempt to locate Sarah. Kyle and Sarah escape, steal another car and take refuge in a motel, where they assemble pipe bombs and plan their next move. Kyle admits that he has been in love with Sarah since John gave him a photograph of her; she reciprocates his feelings and they have sex. Please See More Information…..

The Terminator 1984 Music:-
The Terminator soundtrack was composed and performed on a synthesizer by Brad Fiedel. Fiedel described the film’s music as being about “a mechanical man and his heartbeat”. Almost all the music in the film was performed live. The Terminator theme is played over the opening credits and is played in various points in the film in sped-up versions: a slowed-down version when Reese dies, and a piano version during the love scene.
It has been described as having a “deceptively simple melody” line and “haunting synthesizer music”. It is in a time signature of which came about as Fiedel experimented with the rhythm track on his music equipment (namely Prophet-10 synthesizer); it was initially an accident, but Fiedel found that he liked the “herky-jerky” “propulsiveness”. Fiedel created music for when Reese and Connor escape from the police station that would be appropriate for a “heroic moment”. Cameron turned down this theme, as he believed it would lose the audience’s excitement.
