In the 1980's James Cameron made a rather successful movie about a killer robot that came back in time in order to assassinate the leader of the human resistance before he was even born.
The whole thing made no sense since it set up an obvious paradox but we didn't mind at the time because the whole thing was lovingly crafted and we did not yet realise that Sky-net was going to repeat the same plan over and over in a desperate attempt to keep a franchise based on a wafer-thin premise alive so far beyond it's natural lifespan that even Emperor Palpatinate would blush. 
Which is all well and good for fans of the Terminator but what about Hands of Steel I hear you ask?
Well, It's just a shit knock off. 
I mean, just look at it.
