Review

A star rating of 4 out of 5.

Reuniting with his Terminator director James Cameron, Arnold Schwarzenegger stars as an unshaken, unstirred secret agent, always saving the world in time to get home for dinner with his wife and kids, who are blissfully unaware of his dangerous job. Aside from the truly spectacular action, there's exceptional comedy support from Tom Arnold and a winning performance from Jamie Lee Curtis, who transforms from timid housewife into confident hero. It may be wildly implausible and uncomfortably sexist, but, on a pure excitement level, Cameron's blockbuster is unbeatable entertainment.
