      unpleasant character

      This is the first time I have seen Ma Chai motorcycle, the first time I have seen a fight under the flashing lights, the first time I have seen it swimming under a sea of ​​fire, and the first time I have used a fighter jet as a motorcycle. The action scenes are very well designed. It's also pretty, but the couple's interest in the middle-aged crisis in the film weakens the tension a bit, plus the male and female protagonists are unfortunate in their appearance and acting skills. Fire's funny...

      20 years of blockbuster special effects beyond China

      More than 20 years ago, the "blockbuster" that was absolutely 90 points, now watch 70 points, but it still surpasses domestic films in many places. Although the plot is far-fetched and full of loopholes, if you look at it with the mentality of a comedy entertainment film, it's okay to keep laughing. Cameron i's kung fu in handling big scenes is first-class. It's strange that no one mentions that Wendi Deng was still very charming when he was young, not less than the heroine. In the end, it...

      personal entertainment

      The humorous scene is a classic action movie.
      Of course, it may reflect the typical American-style individual heroism due to its earlier age.

      As a national agent, how could it be so ignorant of organizational discipline and casually change the combat plan. His wife was involved, and balabala
      was welcomed by everyone,
      and those terrorists who were killed by him did not cause national conflict?
      After all, it is a movie. Telling a story can only focus on humor and...

      classic

      The film was shot in 1994, uh, looking at it now, it will inevitably have different feelings due to different times.
         To be honest, if I had watched this movie back then, I would have worshipped this movie to death. However, the world is different now, and the pursuit of film quality is also different.
        
          In terms of action, its scenes are first-class, and both visual and auditory give people a shocking feeling. It's the pinnacle of this kind of film.
          The plot, from...

      9/11 Attacks and True Lies

      True lies have brought the stigma and insult to Muslim extremists to the extreme. This movie is so famous, and I believe bin Laden has seen it too. It must have shocked Muslims and bin Laden a lot, and gave birth to a revenge mentality after being humiliated. Personally, this movie may be one of the reasons for bin Laden to launch the 9/11 attack. The Sea Harrier's shuttle between buildings also inspired bin Laden's attack planning. If this is the case, Hollywood can play big. In any case, may...

    Behind the scenes gags

    The US government provided three Sea Harrier fighters for this film. The crew must pay the pilots more than 100,000 U.S. dollars, and their wages are 2,410 U.S. dollars per hour.
    In the film, Helen wears the underwear for the striptease, which belongs to Jamie Lee Curtis himself.
    During the striptease segment, Jamie Lee Curtis grabbed the bedpost and fell. This is not a plot designed by the script, but a real accident. If you look...
