The divergent puzzle pieces do not often fit together terribly well, in spite of their potential.

Really would work if it ever really let audiences in what it was trying to accomplish.

Driven less by mammoth ego and more by wild, unchecked id, "Last Action Hero" works as a riotous comedy and a rigorous case study of why we go to the movies. It's an inventive valentine made timeless by audacious shamelessness and shameless audacity.

Considered a dunderheaded big-budget flop in its day, Last Action Hero looks considerably better now in its creative self-parody. [Blu-ray]

It makes more than its share of missteps, yet the core of this action lampoon delivers a decent portion of laughs and mischief, giving Schwarzenegger and McTiernan an occasion to make fun of themselves while raising a little hell.

Joyless, tastelss, and soulless, Last Action Hero can't decide if it's an actioner, a comedy or a spoof.

A loud, overproduced, chaotic and incredibly stupid action-comedy that's neither thrilling nor funny.

Yeah, it's bad ... but it's not the infernal stinkbomb we've labeled it. Heck, Ahnold himself has done worse than this!
