    True Lies is an action classic thanks to Arnold and James Cameron who were at their peak in this movie.

    One of Arnold's smartest action movies with an ingenious plot and action galore.

    One of my personal favorite movies. I love how James Cameron made the movie into an Action/Romantic/Comedy movie that is actually good for everyone (I loved it when I was 4 in 2002 and my Grandma loves it as well). I believe the movie has a great cast and very good writing (so what if it's not a Oscar movie). There was a lot of memorable moments in this movie that I quote often and I made all my friends watch it and they love it too. Anyhow, I don't use Netflix but if it is on there go check it out.

    The catch is, once you get past the stunning special effects and the mind-numbing stuntwork, there's not all that much there.

    The director, James Cameron, is a master of action (he worked with Schwarzenegger on "Terminator 2"), and when he's doing his thing, no one does it better.

    One of the best things about True Lies is that it's genuinely funny.
