This is one of my favortie movies and is one of the most neglected releases. not even enhanced for 16x9 TV's on DVD. This title screams for a Blu-Ray Release. FOX? Please get this one out there. I will be 1st in line!

Meet Arnold Swarzennegar - amazing James Bond type spy who's absolutely clueless as a husband and father. He starts out as impeccable as 007, who he is obviously spoofing, but then loses it and goes crazy when he suspects his wife (Jamie Lee Curtis) is cheating on him.
his best buddy, Tom Arnold from "Roseanne" fame, is the perfect comic foil. It's really Tom that makes this act/adv stand out from the crowd. The dialogue is fast, funny, and Tom takes it to the limit. Also up for a laugh is Bill Paxton, another Cameron regular (Aliens), who plays a seedy used-car salesman posing as a spy in order to seduce women. He really goes all the way, completely unafraid of playing a true idiot!
It's just so great to watch an act/adv with great action that isn't limited to the usual, off-hand quips from stoneyfaced he-men. This movie is one of my favorites because it's a great popcorn movie that delivers on many levels. It's not just an excuse to blow things up and no one takes themselves too seriously. Everyone obviously had a great time making this film and it shows. I hope they make the sequel soon.

"True Lies" is one of my favorite action films, being at the same time one of the prototypical mid 1990's action films and a parody of the same genre. It strikes a perfect balance between humor and action throughout the course of the film. It's a must see if you like Arnold.

However, the DVD release presented here is brutal. Do not let the THX certification on the front of the DVD case fool you. The film is presented in 2.35:1 aspect ration, but is not anamorphic widescreen, a format optimized for widescreen televisions. It is presented in letterbox format instead, which means that the picture is much, much worse than its anamorphic equivalent because the black bars at the top and bottom are actually encoded into the video stream. This process leaves less room in the video encoding for the actual image, reducing its quality. Anamorphic widescreen leaves the black bars out of the video encoding, preserving more of the video stream for the actual image and allowing the DVD player and TV to add the black bars if necessary. Since a widescreen TV does not have need for these bars, they can be left off entirely, leaving only the high quality image.

Anamorphic widescreen has been a standard feature of DVDs for years now, so it's easy to forget that not all DVDs have it. Old DVDs are especially suspect on this front. If you have a nice television, the lack of anamorphic widescreen will be very noticeable and distracting throughout the film. Maybe it will be out on Blu-ray soon...

There are two ingredients for a great Arnold flick: tonue in cheek comeday and unbelievable action. This movie has enough of both of these for two movies.
When Arnold gets together with James Cameron, you know the action's going to be unbelievable. I can't wait for TRUE LIES 2. The chase scene in the snow, the bridge chase, and the Harrier scene...some of the best action I've seen in years.
Jamie Lee Curtis as Arnold's unsuspecting wife is just great. She can play both the vulnerable housewife and the hard as nails woman protecting herself...plus she can scream really well! The chemistry between her and Arnold onscreen is great.
The comedy in this movie is great. Tom Arnold plays Arnold's partner and just gets walked all over by him. Has to take all the abuse and cruddy jobs...just hilarious. Then there's Bill Paxton's bit role as a sleazy car salesman. He does an unbelievably funny job.
This is probably Arnold's best movie since TERMINATOR 2. Definitely a must see for any action junkie.

True Lies is a movie about an U. S. spy (played by Arnold Swarzennegger) who tries to keep his true occupation a secret from his wife( played by Jamie Lee Curtis, the daughter of Tony Curtis, and her mother was Janet Leigh.
Anyhow this movie has some hilarious moments, I especially like the used car salesman, who reminds me of an ex-friend.

Highly recommended for fans of Arnold Swarzennegger and Jamie Lee Curtis. I didn't realize she could play a sexy role.

I agree with the 2 reviews on True Lies. Fox should be ashamed because all it really tells us is A MARKETING PLOT to make fans wait to long for a great movie like this to be released on Blu Ray. Why is it that from all the big companies Fox has many titles that are not (Anamorphic: Enhanced for widescreen TV's)

Are they laughing at us? Come on get real. Take a look at many low budget or crappy titles out there that get released anamorphic or on blu ray faster than the big titles. We don't want to wait until we get grey hair to enjoy the new technology available. FOX you disappoint us big time!
IT'S TIME TO WAKE UP.

I bought the DVD before I got my 5.1 system and thought the sound was great with normal stereo but WHOA NELLY! Watch the volume levels, though as comfortable dialog quick becomes sonic booms in this one.
This has the best picture (via S-video) and audio quality I've seen so far on a DVD.
