Cameron and Schwarzenegger team up again for a riot of an action movie.
True Lies sees Arnold Schwarzenegger play Harry Tasker, to his wife Helen (Jaimie Lee Curtis) and daughter Dana (Eliza Dushku) he’s a safe husband and father working as a computer salesman. Away from the family home he’s a top spy for one of America’s highest secret services. When Harry is prompted to believe that Helen is having an affair, it signals the start of a sequence of events that will out Harry and lead them both to a confrontation with a deadly terrorist.
To hell with misogyny and stereotypical Arab terrorist (Art Malik so OTT he’s off the chain man), Cameron’s True Lies really isn’t concerned for political correctness. His aim, aided by his on form cast, is to chase, caress and explode stuff whilst having a laugh at every turn. True Lies, if anyone was in doubt prior to its release, shows Cameron to be supremely gifted at action set pieces. No expense spared of course, but you still gotta utilise those Harrier Jets, helicopters and horse carrying elevators to great effect. And so it proves. Throw in a tremendously funny script that gives Tom Arnold & Bill Paxton comedy gold roles to revel in; and what you get is a Worldwide box office profit of nearly $264 million.
It knows it’s nonsense, but it’s the good kind of nonsense that Hollywood has to offer. Ever re-watchable, True Lies is undeniably great fun. 7.5/10
I seem to like **True Lies** a significant amount less than most people do. And it’s not because it isn’t my type of movie either, Schwarzeneggar as a secret agent in an explosive 90s action movie is absolutely my jam. But I don’t love _True Lies_, maybe I saw it too late in life (I was 25 the first time I saw the whole movie) and either I aged out of it or the movie aged out of society, but whatever the case, I just can’t really understand why it’s so beloved. I would never take it away from anyone, and there’s absolutely stuff I like, but I can’t really recommend it based on personal taste.
_Final rating:★★½ – Had a lot that appealed to me, didn’t quite work as a whole._
This is how an action movie should be like!
Biggest problem with most action movies is that they take themselves way too serious. “True Lies” is mainly fun and entertaining and on top of that, the action is top class!
Finally a movie of which I can say: “Budget well spend!” The action really jumps off the screen but it never feels overdone or forced, which is thanks to action-director veteran James Cameron. He should stick to directing action movies like this, the Terminator movies and “Aliens”. Please no more movies like “Titanic”! (not that it was a VERY bad movie) Stick to were your talent lies.
The movie can be described as an American James Bond, meaning that everything is bigger and I’m not just talking about Arnie’s chest. Just like the James Bond movies, it doesn’t take itself seriously without making itself ridiculous.
Many people seem to have problems with the whole “wife side track, story-line” I guess I’m one of the few that doesn’t mind it at all and actually find it an extra addition to the story.
The movie has everything a good action movie need: A believable action hero, explosions, chases, gun fights, a stereotype villain and a high entertainment value.
I wish more action movies like this would be made.
That one scene is worth watching the whole movie for. Art Malik’s performance is brilliant and its no wonder he plays so many bad guy roles. Most of the guys playing Arab terrorists within movies, like him, are’nt even Arabs themselves. True Lies is a completely kick ass and non-stop blast fest. This is how movies should be. People use derogatory terms like “popcorn flicks” but at the same time, would they ever admit that they don’t see movies or go to the cinema for the sheer fun and excitement of it? Too many people are pretending to be wannabe film critics that think that action-comedy flicks are too unsophisticated for their taste. This is one of the best movies ever made. Arnie is perfect for the role and James Cameron is King.
