Far be it from me to say that True Lies isn't a fun lark of an action-comedy, but it could stand to be a lot more fun and a lot more larking.

James Cameron is able to present his usual high-impact action, pushing the film out of the realm of simple Bond spoofing.

If the Gulf War gave you an insatiable taste for burning oil and burning Arabs, this extravaganza will tide you over for at least a couple of days.

Though not as irksome and irritating as Schwarzenegger's Last Action Hero, this James Cameron actioner is more of a big technical machine than a story which is senseless.

Half the time, this hi-tech action movie delivers, in a mindless kind of way: it's fast, crude and has enough explosions and cartoon-style violence to satisfy our baser instincts.
March 4, 2006
One of the best mega-budgeted summer blockbusters of the modern era. A deft blend of thrilling action and edgy comedy.

Good action sequences marred by a mean-spirited, misanthropic tone.

As this comedy of manners unfolds, it is played for all-out action as well as satiric humor.

Cameron's otherwise enjoyable romp is ruined by the appalling treatment of its leading lady. I don't use the word 'misogynist' lightly, but...
