When he said I do, he never said what he did.
Harry Tasker is a secret agent for the United States Government. For years, he has kept his job from his wife, but is forced to reveal his identity and try to stop nuclear terrorists when he and his wife are kidnapped by them.
After making a stunning breakthrough with The Terminator, further expanding the immensely captivating universe of a timeless classic with Aliens, beautifully exploring the deep secrets of the ocean with The Abyss and completely redefining action & setting a new benchmark for sequels in cinema with Terminator 2: Judgment Day, visionary filmmaker James Cameron brings his sweeping cinematic vision to an action comedy this time & does a splendid job yet again.
A loose remake of the 1991 French comedy, La Totale!, the story of True Lies follows Harry Tasker; a secret agent who performs covert operations for the US government but pretends to be a computer salesman to his family. When his latest trail reveals intel about a terrorist group in possession…
"DA BRIDGE IS AAUUUT!"
the best (and the most) American action film of the last 20 or so years.
mushroom cloud kiss is *the* image of Cameron's career.
I've seen this at least five or six times and I fall in love with Jamie Lee Curtis all over again every time. The way she wets her hair with the water from the flowers. The way she strips for Arnold while he sits in the dark. Oh yeah, the rest of the film is pretty good, too, but it's that damn hotel room scene .... whew!
In fact, I was in Taipei several years ago and met a certain lady who came back to my own hotel room. The movie happened to be on the pay-per-view channel and after we watched it, I asked her if she was up for a little role play. The way she reenacted that scene ... whoa! Unforgettable.
Okay, so now everyone in the world knows why I rate this movie so highly. So sue me. But really ... it's a great film!!!
Loads of fun! Tom Arnold was absolutely perfect. Bill Paxton was awesome. Looking for the perfect popcorn afternoon flick? Look no further. Did I say it was loads of fun? Enjoy! Highly recommended!
You can't deny that James Cameron's True Lies is an entertaining slice of nineties nostalgia for fans of excess and Arnold Schwarzenegger. It has the pre-9/11 Hollywood version of an Islamic terrorist and action galore, as well as Jamie Lee Curtis gyrating in her undercrackers. It's ludicrously outrageous, racist, sexist, and at the time the most expensive film ever made. It had violence, laughs, and devastation even Roland Emmerich would have been proud of. Cameron's penchant for special effects came in handy too as this has some rather impressive set pieces that set the standard for the time. This must have been pretty good, as even Tom Arnold isn't as much of a knob as he usually is.
Anyone with any desire to make an action film should be made to watch this first.
This is proof that sometimes, throwing everything at the camera can create a visual extravaganza.
True Lies is nearly 20 YEARS OLD, and the action set pieces still stand up to anything that I have seen since. Like THAT scene on the bridge. Unbelievable.
Shwarzenegger is brilliant in this. This is must be his 3RD best film.
Uma das melhores comédias de ação dos últimos anos, True Lies é um ótimo exemplo desse gênero que consegue ter humor e cenas de ação sem que um interfira no outro negativamente.
Vemos aqui um agente secreto lutando contra uma facção terrorista e ao mesmo tempo tentando envolver sua esposa normal em uma trama para tirá-la da monotonia da vida comum, sem saber que isso causará um grande perigo para ambos. Segue-se ótimas sequências de perseguição, explosões, lutas mano a mano, tiroteios; que são entremeados por uma divertida trama secundária de adultério, com boas piadas e momentos bem divertidos.
Arnold Schwarzenegger está ótimo como o superespião cheio de talentos, numa possível crise matrimonial, conseguindo balancear bem entre o herói de…

Perfect for mindless entertainment if it were 45 minutes shorter.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
the first half is fucking insane and crazy and awesome and the second half is just stupid and boring and dumb
the best things about the movie are Arnold being a complete psychopath, the dude who pretends to be a spy and Tom Arnold. The first two things are just completely dropped and forgotten when the real terrorists come into play. Literally the moment the real terrorists kidnap Arnie and Jamie Lee Curtis is when the movie goes to fuck.

Everyone is at the top of their game: Arnold, Jamie Lee, James Cameron. But somehow Tom Arnold steals the movie. That's how good it is. Even the worst part turns out to be the best. Funny and exciting. Sexy and a little bit sweet. Perfect movie.
Cop in jet!
No one would dispute the statement that James Cameron is one of the premier event filmmakers working today, and because of that, "True Lies" should have been a home run. And the action scenes are indeed amazing. The last half hour is especially impressive with an amazing car/helicopter chase over a bridge and the breathtaking finale involving a skyscraper and a fighter jet.
Cameron's action sequences always have a thrilling, go-for-broke quality to them that I love and you'll walk out of this film on a thrill-ride high. Unfortunately, it can't make up for the giant derailment that occurs throughout the film's middle section. The subplot involving Bill Paxton as a wannabe spy and Arnold's suspicions that his wife is…
Casual orientalism aside, True Lies sits too awkwardly between being a full-blooded parody of '80s and '90s action films (which, incidentally, Last Action Hero  did better) and being a legitimate Arnie vehicle... but that's obviously not to say it ain't, for the most part, fun.
