True Lies | 1994 | R | - 4.7.7

Another action juggernaut from director James Cameron, with Arnold Schwarzenegger playing a secret agent so secret his wife thinks he's boring.

SEX/NUDITY 4 - While there is no frontal nudity, apart from cleavage, there is a scene which depicts a woman doing a very arousing striptease where she fondles herself a lot. Also, one character spends all of his time trying to sleazily seduce a woman and winds up between her clothed legs.

VIOLENCE/GORE 7 - In all, approximately 75-100 bad guys are killed in various ways throughout the movie: People are stabbed, necks are broken, Arabs run about ablaze with flames upon their backs, women have cat fights, one woman is slapped hard across the face twice by a villain, and there are threats of extreme torture. A man is chased by machine gunners on skis and snowmobiles, and he picks off each one of them. Two men are killed in a shopping mall restroom; there's plenty of blood. A man in a jet chases down and kills a couple dozen more bad guys.

LANGUAGE 7 - F-words, scatological and anatomical references, as well as sexual innuendos are used. Many misogynistic comments.

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Honesty, infidelity, trust between loved ones, negative Arab stereotypes.

MESSAGE - Honesty is the best policy.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
