I have to agree with the other commentators: the cape is a major asset here. Yes, you could assume the cape was some improvised disguise on the terminator's part, but it looks so utterly cool. The vapor off the weapon's barrel suggests something serious just happened.
is it me or does the image kind of give that t-800 i'm assuming a sort of human-like feel. in my eyes it looks liek the terminator is self-aware, the cloak makes the machien just look like a complete utter badass aswell as the pose.
Ya Christian Bale did put on his stupid Batman voice for the entire Terminator film so this isn't too far wrong. I thought he was gonna say "if you're listening to this...you are the resistance. This is Batman!"
