That film carefully overlays the relationship with the spectacle throughout, whereas True Lies pivots rather awkwardly from one to the other, with a middle stretch that shunts the terrorist plot off to the sidelines and, worse, gets off-puttingly mean-spirited at times (though Bill Paxton's magnificent sliminess largely redeems it). Still, on the whole, it's rarely less than engaging, and I'm.

True Lies is a 1994 American action comedy film written, directed and co-produced by James Cameron and executive produced by Lawrence Kasanoff. It stars Arno.There had been speculation that the movie would thus get a fresh disc release at the end of last year, to mark its 30 th birthday (interviews were reportedly conducted for a 20 year anniversary release of the film a decade ago, but that disc never came to fruition). 2019 also marked the 25 th birthday of True Lies. Not a further whiff of either film finally getting that fresh release followed.True Lies. Yet another action movie with Arnold Schwarzenegger. James Cameron is back again with another explosive film and beautiful cinematography. I sat in the 10th row surrounded by digital sound and this huge screen---it was an amazing experience from the start. Schwarzennegger is Harry Tasker, a secret agent, who has a tendency to be a bit reckless. Things go out of hand when he.
True Lies the movie was awesome, the DVD itself.meh. Picture transfer might look great on an old tube TV but on an HDTV it's horrible. Gonna have to wait until Cameron decides to put this and The Abyss on Blu-Ray. C'mon Jimmy, get off your butt and get cracking, people want to have this with a crystal clear picture to show off those great effects.Read More

True Lies Review. Posted on September 21, 2010 By John Gilpatrick 1990s, Movie Reviews. RATING: (3 STARS)If James Cameron ever got his hands on the 007 franchise, the result would almost certainly look and feel a lot like True Lies.It’s a very solid action film that never takes itself too seriously, but there were some elements that didn’t totally work.Read More
True Lies might not be what many expect from James Cameron (given that it’s not thought-provoking or full of copious amounts of water) but it’s undoubtedly entertaining. Though occasionally bordering on silly (the attempted horse roof-jump springs to mind) the movie never takes itself completely seriously and will have viewers grinning all the way from start to finish. That it’s as funny.Read More
Movie Review: True Lies (1994) A tongue-in-cheek spy thriller with a big dose of domestic intrigue, True Lies combines a big budget action spectacle with the travails of a married couple keeping secrets from each other. Harry Tasker (Arnold Schwarzenegger) lives a double life. He works as a globe-trotting spy for Omega Sector, a national security counterterrorism agency, but back in Washington.Read More
CULT MOVIE REVIEW: True Lies (1994) An elaborate and expensively-mounted remake of the French farce, La Totale! (1991), James Cameron's blockbuster True Lies reveals once more the director's absolute panache in staging and directing spectacular action sequences.Read More
True Lies is one of the good action-comedies. It’s a film that has some inventive action scenes, as well as a generally light tone mixed in with cartoon levels of violence. It’s action-packed, funny, and there isn’t a dull moment even though its running time is almost two and a half hours. Its plot is enjoyable, the screenplay has more than half a brain, and it’s a movie that is fun.Read More

The movie shows no particular respect for government institutions that preserve national security by being snoops. Honesty is the watchword, despite the film's title. True Lies, it turns out, is less about explosions and stunts than about a marriage that has sagged into vague boredom and low communication. When Harry assumes that Helen is.Read More
