There is a lot of action in Last Action Hero, but the underlying story never ever quite works.

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

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

A good idea that is too overblown and poorly executed.

A poorly executed in-joke where everyone in the audience -- Arnold Schwarzenegger fans included -- feels left out.

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