A minor entry in the Cameron/Arnie canon? Maybe, but it's still awesome, and with a genuinely good performance from Arnold. You're fired!
Holy shit... can't believe i haven't seen this until today.
Cameron had the the balls to do a movie that ran 140 minutes, cost 130 million and was rated R.
Breathtaking visuals and stuntwork top almost all movies after 20 years. Tia Carrere is insanely hot. As is Jamie Lee Curtis' body.
One of the best Arnie movies.
Uma paródia acima de tudo.
The wheels are starting to come off as Jim Cameron metamorphosizes from the master of action and VFX behind Aliens and Terminator 2 into that guy with a feeble grasp of the human condition who made Titanic and Avatar. Arnold is always fun though.
I love how this movie plays around with jumping the shark. It's just on the right level to not become too insane, but still permitting itself in doing it. The ending of the chase scene with the horse is a perfect example.
The story is to no surprise very basic and cliche with secret agents, terrorists, nuclear bombs and jadida, but the execution is great with its funny scenes and situations. Very entertaining action.
And Harry is a dirty man by letting his wife do all that nasty stuff.
Arnieeeeee! Oh God I really love Arnie movies. True lies isn't really an exception, but it might be a bit too long. Started watching this at 00.30 and stayed up waaaay over my nappy nappy bed time because of it.
I loved the double story that mangled up in the end. I guess people may find this stupid but I found it more than okay.
If you have your mind set to some mindless action mixed in with some Arnie Arghehgbnls then you are set for an entertaining night.
Delightful bouncy breast. Oh, and it there were so many great one-liners.
Aaawww, MAN! This was not the enjoyable rewatch I was hoping for! It was not as cool as I remembered...!
Wait a second...
I was 15 last time I saw this. That was the year it was released.
Yup, thought so; I was young and dumb back then...!
Back in 1994, $120m was considered A LOT of money.
I mean, fuck, to me $100 is considered a lot of money, but as of now the above sum is around average for a high end blockbuster budget, the bigger buggers sometimes knocking on the door of or north of $200m.
If it were made today and given the adjusted figure by its finances, True Lies would be budgeted at around $250m... and that's a truckload more green than most…
Watched as part of my campaign to watch every Arnie film.
1994 was a year of enormous change in cinema. The overblown action epics of the 1980s were becoming unfashionable. Replaced by Quentin Tarantino's jumbled, violent and movie obsessed Pulp Fiction. The Schwarzenegger's and Stallone's of this world were about to become dinosaurs. Arnie's farewell to superstardom was this action packed spy thriller from James Cameron. It has everything you'd expect from the tandem of a great action director and…
