Harry Tasker (get it?) is America's top secret agent with the Omega Force -- so secret his wife Helen thinks he's a dull computer salesman. Harry's on the trail of nuclear weapons taken from Russia by terrorists at the same time as he discovers his wife has been having an affair to put some adventure in her life. He uses much of his high-tech expertise to spy on his wife and get her to confess and repent -- not to mention strip -- for him (as well as saving the world). James Cameron did this 1994 remake of an obscure 1991 French thriller called "La Totale!" and set up an interesting marital conflict but pissed it away in a lot of gunplay, explosions, and Arab stereotyping. There are good action sequences, and a thrilling climax that required the rental of three U.S. Marine Harriers and their pilots for $100,735 (Schwarzenegger taught himself to take off and land one). Arnold is hilarious, Paxton wonderfully sleazy, and Heston does a cute cameo as the Omega Force boss. But Cameron's action directing is preferable to his writing skills.

The review of this Movie prepared by David Loftus
Arnold Schwarzenegger is a special agent and his wife is a boring housewife. She doesn't know he is a spy. When their two lives collide and they find themselves captured by international terrorists, the fun begins. They have to save themselves and the U.S.. This movie has a lot of special effects and non-stop action with some romantic comedy thrown in.
