  • Director James Cameron always works on a mega- canvas, yet he's brought off something unique here. show more

  • On the surface, True Lies is an affectionate homage to James Bond movies, ratcheted up to meet the action/adventure expectations of today's audiences. show more

    Aha ha ha ha this one's funny, ******** also disturbing, in that the 'small' nuclear explosion which occurs in the movie is sooo very unrealistic, and that's an understatement. In this movie, they say " You must be at least 12 miles away to be out of harms way." HUH!!! You'd really have to be on the other side of the continent, at least! Where was the tidal wave, and oh yeah, none of the windows in the buildings blew out, not to mention seeing the stars 'watch' the explosion! Noone goes blind, not even temporarily. Oh yeah, and then there's the radioactive fallout.... never even mentioned here. Yep, this is a comedy alright, but I'm not really laughing, as this gives young people the very false idea that one could survive a nuclear explosion at close range. FALSE

    I love this movie. The chemistry between Jamie Lee and Arnold is almost tangible. Every time it is on I try and watch it. I especially like the lines: Helen-"Have you ever killed anyone?" Harry-"Yes but they were all bad."
