    Classic cheesy action movie, but with a strong female co-lead and a great family dynamic. This is one I come back to over and over again because of the humour, the strong character played by Jamie Lee Curtis, and the amusing interplay between her character and that of Arnold Schwarzenegger. This is the story of a secret agent, his wife's discovery of his role, and the clash when his work life and his home life collide. Arnold's character is solid, but doesn't really change much throughout the movie. However, it is a joy to watch Jamie Lee Curtis' character blossom from a woman flirting with danger because she is bored with her home life and her work life, to a strong asset in her own right. She stands up for herself throughout, and I always love watching her character.

    I've been waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting for this movie to come out on blu ray. Finally, I got sick of waiting and just bought it on DVD. I remember watching this as a kid and had it on VHS. This is a James Cameron/Arnold Schwarzenegger movie that I feel like a lot of people have forgotten and don't give enough credit to. Great action, great characters, and hysterical dialogue. This is definitely a gem in Arnold's career. Unfortunately, the DVD is pretty bare-bones. Not much in the way of special features. But I would say that if you're a fan of this film, then you'll enjoy this none the less. I'm still holding out hope that this movie will one day be given the blu ray treatment!!

    True Lies was my first action movie I'd ever seen as a kid. Now, granted, why a kid saw this movie at my age, God knows why. The movie is great, Lots of action and comedy with Arnold, Jamie, and Tom. The only problem with the DVD is the format! It's not full or wide screen. It looks odd. I don't know the technical term for it but it's pan pasted or something like that. It maintains the full quality of the film, but looks like a box in the middle of screen. I can't enjoy the movie that way. It was a great price, but until they release a better format, I wouldn't buy the DVD.

    As big a fan as I am of the Terminators (1 & 2, that is), I like this film just as much. It has the perfect blend of action & humor, and the casting is perfect. My only gripe is that Cameron hasn't released this film on blu-ray yet, a restored edition of this on BR would be superb. Other than that, great quality picture & sound for a DVD, very well balanced. Makes a good addition to the collection.

    I wanted this movie for my Arnold collection. I’ve been waiting for a blu-ray copy for some time now. It’s out of print and had to settle for dvd. The movie is great, though. Arnold’s best action comedy, without a doubt.

    One of James Cameron's best. Just a good action movie with a good story. A lot of good stunt work. This is before they green screened everything. This movie is also funny. Has some great comic relief. And the striptease by Jamie Lee Curtis is superb. Love this movie!

    Love the crisp night shots in Cameron's movies. Arnold is great as always and True Lies is worth watching again and again. Great storyline combined with consistent cinematography. I'm waiting for the blu-ray version or even more advanced release to come out!

    This is an old movie for sure, but one of my favorites. Arnold, Jamie Lee are at their best in this movie. I have always wished they teamed up for a sequel. Comedy, suspense. Tom Arnold is a wonderful addition to this cast. I love this move!

    I liked this movie when it came out and I think I love it more now. It has held up over time because it doesn't take itself too seriously. Schwarzenegger and Jamie Lee Curtis are perfect in their roles.

    I enjoyed this movie starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jamie Lee Curtis who kept me intrigue and the late Bill Paxton was comical. Lots of action and suspense yet funny. A must see.

    Loved it when it released, still love it. Story has become a bit painful since 9.11, but the movie has great pace, classic lines & scenes and is plain old fun action. Characters are big, and played with skill by all.

    Awesome movie. Jamie Lee Curtis doing the striptease was awesome to watch. Tom Arnold's presence in the movie doesnt make me wanna kill myself, so thats a plus. Also, the governator shoots an RPG through a building!

    True Lies is the best Arnold movie to date. Hilarious and fun. Everyone named Arnold shows well, even Tom Arnold. If you have not seen it and love action flicks... Why have you not seen it?
