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.

James Cameron's worst film is still solid

Probably James Cameron's weakest film (I'm not counting "Piranha Part Two: The Spawning"), but considering his other films are "Terminator 1 & 2," "Aliens," "The Abyss" "Titanic," and "Avatar" that's a fairly high bar (the JC best to worst (or least- best) rank order goes Terminator, Aliens, T2, Abyss, Avatar, Titanic, True Lies). Arnold plays a super spy, but his family, wife Jamie Lee Curtis and daughter Eliza Dushku, have no idea and think he's a dull salesman (never mind how Arnold could ever be considered ordinary). Curtis is left a neglected and bored wife who begins seeing lecherous used car salesmen Bill Paxton, pretending to be a spy in order to seduce Curtis, and from there Arnold's life as a spy trying to stop a group of international terrorists from getting a nuclear warhead begins to cross over with his family life. I remember liking this film when it first came out and enjoyed the mix of comedy and action, but watching it as a married 45-year old adult, I realized this film at it's core is about keeping the romance and excitement alive in a marriage after kids and career start to take hold during middle age. The action is good, but is done with a comedic lighter touch and is nowhere as good or as suspenseful as Cameron's best films, which is a bit disappointing. The humor is okay, but not all that funny. However, the cast is extremely likable, led by Arnold and Curtis, but Tom Arnold is also excellent as Arnold's spy partner (Arnold is an underrated comic actor who deserves more respect), as is Bill Paxton. I remember there being some controversy and accusations of misogyny over Arnold's manipulation of wife when he locks her up and makes her do her infamous striptease. There is still an unpleasant creep factor to those scenes, but it's not enough to ruin the overall film. "True Lies" is not a boundary pushing of film like most all of Cameron's other films. This could just as easily have been an Ivan Reitman comedy, but Cameron is a solid filmmaker and delivers a solid film. On a side note, Charlton Heston shows up for a couple scenes as Spencer Trilby, the head of Arnold's super secret spy agency, sporting an eye patch that makes him look exactly like the comic book version of Nick Fury. He totally should have played the cinematic version of Fury if there was still alive today!
