True Lies is one of those movies that you don't really have to believe in to enjoy.
And a good thing that is, since if belief were the criterion, True Lies would
fall flat on its smirking face. But since the movie is so much fun and quite honest
about being not-so-credible, we can, for once, overlook the fact that we are being
taken for a ride. It's a pretty good ride.
Though familiar, the story does have its moments, and we've learnt over the years that it's the handling that counts, haven't we? Well, Cameroon handles it well, if at times a little too flippantly....
