True Lies (1994)
Genre: Action,Comedy, Thriller
Director: James Cameron
Starring: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jamie Lee Curtis, Tom Arnold, Bill Paxton, Charlton Heston
A tough and fearless US secret agent fears that his wife is having an affair with a used car salesman. Things get out of hand quickly and he must go on another mission to save his marriage and then some.
Ah, this is classic 1990’s fare, a somewhat silly action-comedy starring big names like Schwarzenegger and Curtis. The directing talents of Cameron behind the camera.
This movie has a little bit of everything that you want in a film of this caliber. You have some star power, one-liners, great action scenes, some sex appeal (Jamie Lee Curtis in ways you may never have seen her before.) It’s not a clever movie, but it also isn’t stupid. Just good action flick fun.
I will say for people who like something beyond the damsel in distress kinda deal. This movie will let you down. Although Curtis is a fiery version of this, I’d much rather her be a Furiosa from Mad Max kind of woman.
