This is pretty much the peak espionage action movie. The movie veers between hilarity and intensity with great skill. All the acting is outstanding, the villains are examples of quality, the stunts are extreme and the whole thing comes together as just a perfect example of what a movie should be. One of Schwarzenegger's best.

"Your fired". Harry is actually part of an ultra-secret organization and when he finds out his wife is having an affair with a "spy" he uses his resources to keep tabs on her, but they both end up in the hands of terrorists. This movie has cool action and good visual effect's and some bad-ass lines.

A surprisingly enjoyable spy thriller that is almost a spoof on the genre. Schwarzenegger and Jamie Lee Curtis have fun with the silly script and the film also features some improbable, but insane action sequences.

Government spook and his wife. Humor, action, body count, atomic bomb in Florida. Lots of special effects. Watch this if you want diversion that will take you away for awhile.

"True Lies" by Yojimbo

Arnold Schwarzenegger plays a government super spy posing as a computer salesman whose secret identity is unknown even to his wife and family. James Cameron's spoof of Hollywood action blockbusters has all the ingredients of the summer hit; humour, romance and big budget special effects, all served with a healthy dose of irony. Arnie will never win any prizes for his thespian skills, but he is perfectly comfortable in the familiar surroundings of stereotypical terrorists, uzis, explosions and cheesy one-liners, with Art Malik slumming it as the usual Islamic nut job and an unrecognisable Eliza Dushku is the rebellious teen daughter. I must admit that the sight of Jamie Lee Curtis being "sexy" made me slightly queasy and the film drags in the middle because of a flabby sub plot involving a...
