What is there to say about this film that has not been said before? It's a TRUE Action Classic from the 90s!

This is one of Schwartzenegger's best. With a decent cast and one powerful storyline this is definitely one to add to your collection. Bill Paxton's character is off the board and probably one of his most believable. Jamie Lee is terrific in her role as the befuddled wife and Tom Arnold tops it off like a good head on a cold glass of beer. A can't beat movie for a few laughs and lots of action. I give it a very solid 4 out of 5 stars.

Back before James Cameron declared himself "King of the World" and back when he still made kick-ass action films, 'True Lies' is a must see. Sadly, this was his last great movie. Once his 'Titanic' hit that iceberg and began sinking, so did our hopes of him ever returning to the genius of "T2" or "Aliens" (which easily surpassed their originals). I will not be surprised to one day see "T-2:Rise of the Titanic" directed by Cameron! Let's remember how awesome 'true lies' was. The clever story, the sense of humor, the FX...Simply a great film.
Yes, Cameron wasn't afraid to show how terrorists really are: Enraged, Islamic lunatics who
Are hell-bent on blowing up America. This film, if made today, would be rated PG13, have all funny scenes regarding Muslims edited out, and the interrogation of Harrys wife (Jaimie Lee Curtis) why was she not nominated? We hate the Academy! If you haven't seen this one yet buy it trade it or even Netflix or rent it. You have my vote! Hey, Arnold is given a chance to 'act' in this movie! That's a first!
Also watch for a very funny scene at the used car lot with Bill Paxton Who was also in 'The Terminator" and "Aliens"( 'game over!')

I loved the Used Car salesman

"True Lies DVD

True Lies is a movie about an U. S. spy (played by Arnold Swarzennegger) who tries to keep his true occupation a secret from his wife( played by Jamie Lee Curtis, the daughter of Tony Curtis, and her mother was Janet Leigh.
Anyhow this movie has some hilarious moments, I especially like the used car salesman, who reminds me of an ex-friend.

Highly recommended for fans of Arnold Swarzennegger and Jamie Lee Curtis. I didn't realize she could play a sexy role.

One of Arnie's and Cameron's best films!

"Meet Arnold Swarzennegar - amazing James Bond type spy who's absolutely clueless as a husband and father. He starts out as impeccable as 007, who he is obviously spoofing, but then loses it and goes crazy when he suspects his wife (Jamie Lee Curtis) is cheating on him. his best buddy, Tom Arnold from "Roseanne" fame, is the perfect comic foil. It's really Tom that makes this act/adv stand out from the crowd. The dialogue is fast, funny, and Tom takes it to the limit. Also up for a laugh is Bill Paxton, another Cameron regular (Aliens), who plays a seedy used-car salesman posing as a spy in order to seduce women. He really goes all the way, completely unafraid of playing a true idiot!It's just so great to watch an act/adv with great action that isn't limited to the usual, off-hand quips from stoneyfaced he-men. This movie is one of my favorites because it's a great popcorn movie that delivers on many levels. It's not just an excuse to blow things up and no one takes themselves too seriously. Everyone obviously had a great time making this film and it shows. I hope they make the sequel soon."
True Lies - An extremely entertaining action/drama film!

""True Lies" is quite simply, one of the most entertaining, fast paced and hilarious films that Arnold Schwarzenegger has ever starred in. From the very first time I saw this movie in the theater to several viewings both in VHS and DVD format, I've found that the superior script and exceptional acting in this film entertains every time. I've read of and heard many lament over some aspects of this film and the best I could say to those is that quite often the movies that Hollywood produces are a sensationalism of real life events and ultimately a movie such as this one is for entertainment not making statements about any one group or individual and as a medium for entertainment, this film succeeds completely!Performance wise, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jamie Lee Curtis, Tom Arnold, Bill Paxton, Tia Carrere and Art Malik all deserve great honors and the accolades they received for their respective parts in this film. "True Lies" was probably Arnold Schwarzenegger's best overall performance both in the action and the dramatic sense. Jamie Lee Curtis couldn't have been any better in this role and I can honestly say that I was impressed with Tom Arnold's performance in this movie whereas any other film or show I've seen him in I was not impressed. I believe the only other movie I've seen that Art Malik was in was "The Living Daylights" and in both that movie and this one his work has been exceptional.Say what you may like about director James Cameron but you would definitely have to admit that prior to the current but most likely "temporary" culmination of his career as a director with the movie "Titanic" and heading off to run the "Dark Angel" television series, few directors could come close to matching his accomplishments. "True Lies" was James Cameron's fifth highly successful hit in a row and with this movie and "Titanic" one could definitely say that during this run of box office hits, he had the pulse of the fans as he wrote screenplays and directed these extraordinary films.The Premise:Harry Tasker (Arnold Schwarzenegger) is a high speed "spook" working for a highly secretive government agency that is a watch dog/operator spook agency that identifies and handles terrorist threats to the United States. Along with his handler Albert Gibson (Tom Arnold), they uncover a major terrorist operation which is bent on using nuclear warheads against the US to accomplish its goals. As Harry, Albert and their organization are working to uncover the terrorists plot; his family becomes heavily involved in the story which is where Helen Tasker (Jamie Lee Curtis) comes in to play and some extremely hilarious scenes involving Simon (Bill Paxton). What follows from there is one of the most hilarious and exciting action/drama films to have come out of the nineties.I highly recommend this film to any and all who are interested in seeing a great, fast paced, highly intriguing and hilarious action/drama movie and aren't interested in reading too much into the plot or the characters in the plot that are used as plot devices. {ssintrepid}Special Features:-Original Theatrical Trailer"
