James Cameron raised the bar on what audiences could expect from their action movies with this riproaringly entertaining yarn.
Arnold Schwarzenegger plays Harry Tasker, a globetrotting super-spy. The problems he faces abroad, however, are nothing compared to those at home – his wife of many years still believes he is a representative for a computer company. But before long his two worlds collide.
A witty script and stunningly realised and exciting set-pieces make this an exhilarating experience. And to top it off, the late, much-lamented Charlton Heston puts in a perfectly-realised performance as Spencer Trilby, Harry’s deadly serious, one-eyed boss.
