Terminator POV

Random thought that keeps bugging me. Am I right in thinking that out of all the terminator films we have never seen a POV of the T1000?


  • Hang on I'll just sit through the films and let you now... wait... know not got the time... sorry.

  • We never saw a T-1000 POV shot because the T-1000, according to James Cameron,  doesn't actually see. 


    "The deleted scene of T-1000 searching John's room was specifically shot to show the audience that T-1000 doesn't see but that he senses, like an insect or Alien. He carefully touches and massages everything with the tips of his fingers. "Touch" is a key word here - it's the same way T-1000 samples objects."

  • @Triem23 bet your good at quiz shows too!! :)

  • @Andy001z I do ok at Trivia quiz. Usually 4th or 5th if about 15 teams, but I'm playing alone against 4-to-6 person teams. 

    But I Googled this one. Another user in another forum had this link and quote posted already.

    Thanks for the  reply @Triem23, the deleted John's bedroom scene would've made it clearer I guess, or some exposition from the T800. 

  • The POWER of GOOGLE!!!

  • GodofThunder I'm not certain if that's a detail that needs to be clarified, actually. I never thought about a T-1000 HUD before, really, and I think it's, overall, not terribly important. 

    But one shouldn't put much thought into Terminator tech. Otherwise, well, Kyle Reese comes back nekkid because onmy organic material can be sent through a time travel bortex, but... Well, I guess cotton, hemp and leather (all organic) don't exist, or something? And a T-800 is wrapped in fkesh because only organic material can time travel, unless the mineral bits are, um, wrapped in organics or something? But a T-1000 can time travel because, um... It grows organic skin or something? 

    Or we can just ignore that it doesn't actually make any sense at all and enjoy the story.

    I've enjoyed all the terminators films good and bad. It was just a thought that was bugging me, and like Andy said I couldn't be bothered to watch through them to find out. :-)

    As for the rest of the details as Andy said I've got from google, the POV was the only one thing I couldn't find anything about.
