I’ve watched True Lies a few times but it’s been a while. The other night it was on TV and even though it was edited all to hell I was still reminded what an awesome movie it is. It’s got good action, several laugh out loud moments, and Jamie Lee Curtis dancing in black sexy underwear. It doesn’t get much better than that.

With Hollywood’s love of sequels I wonder why this hasn’t gotten one? Is that something you’d be interested in? Reading more into it, it sounds like there was one in the works but no more.

4/5 stars
