    True Lies Review
    True Lies in a tongue firmly in cheek action yarn that manages to defy believability yet is an absolute action fest from the start to the end. Director James Cameron never does any thing by halves and the action set pieces are breathtaking in scope even by today's standard. I am sure that most Home Cinema fans have experienced this movie more than once before but for those who may have missed it (shame on you).

    Arnold Schwarzenegger is an international spy Harry Tasker who is tracking Islamic terrorists who plan to set off nuclear bombs on mainland USA. Harry's wife (Jamie Lee Curtis) is completely unaware of Harry's line of work, she thinks he is a computer salesman. As Harry investigates and follows the bad guys, his wife is picked up by a used car salesman posing as a spy. Once Harry discovers she is having an affair he does his best to try and follow his wife at the same time as tracking the Terrorists, but things are about to come to a head and both Harry and his wife are about to both get the shock of their lives.

    True Lies is a must have action movie and this Japanese edition is one of only a handful from around the globe to include a DTS soundtrack.
