What a hoot! This might be Arnie's best, even though Jamie Lee almost steals the show.

I had forgotten how funny this film is. From the very start it begins to laugh at itself and the entire genre, with great audacity. Every single scene is worth watching and I am still giggling about many of them. (Well, ok, the camera angle on the scene with terrorist-as-missile is a teensy bit overdone.)

I delayed renting it again because I remembered the Jamie-Lee-as-prostitute scene was difficult to sit through--her predicament is just so embarrassing. But this time I discovered it is probably my favorite scene. She is just a scream (and surprisingly erotic), while her underplayed klutziness throughout is hysterical, right down to the tango at the end. Especially in contrast to her husband's ridiculously effortless physical skills and unruffled cool. The only time he loses it, and hilariously so, is with Bill Paxton. (And I love that she gets her own back for Arnie's sleazy trick. A woman who packs a punch.)

Even the excellent special effects are pure humor. They are just huge enough to be ridiculous, and yet never seem overblown--and this with a nuclear explosion and a Harrier on an urban rampage. This film is a work of genius. How an action/espionage/romance spoof could deliver such outrageous tongue-in-cheek and yet never feel like corn, slap or déjà vu is a mystery to me.

I give this 8/10 for being relentlessly entertaining, at a very high level. And the acting is top notch all around.

I'm married to Rambo / You're fired :D

Although Arnold isn't much of an actor and action comedies are not highly appreciated genre, this movie is awesome. It's full of twists and surprises, Arnold's trademark shame-transfer-oneliners and it's extremely entertaining. Story is uncommonly complicated for Schwarzenegger movie, if we excuse Arnold, acting is pretty good, and directing in combination with special effects will keep you at the edge of your seat almost whole movie. I say "almost" because occasionally you may fall from laughter. During first hour I thought it will be mediocre action 6/10, but then madness starts and last for hour and a half more. I thought that Jamie's "I'm married to Rambo" exceeds all Arnold's retarded oneliners, but soon he took the throne back with "You're fired," oneliner that, in my eyes, exceeds even legendary "I'll be back."

8/10 (I barely refrain from rating it even higher)

This is a fine example of classic American action.

True Lies (1994)

This is a straight up 90s action flick directed by James Cameron and starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. The supporting cast includes Jamie Lee Curtis, Tom Arnold, Tia Carrere, Bill Paxton, Eliza Dushku, and Charlton Heston. The film follows a U.S. government agent, who balances his life as a spy with his familial obligations. This is Schwarzenegger in his prime. With Cameron at the director's chair, you get all the action and cinematic glory you would expect. This is a fine example of classic American action.
