The Last Stand Reviews

The weaponry is so ridiculously bountiful that the movie must be a defense against something. But it's just another lousy action movie. And for more than an hour, it's less than that.

The movie's tongue in cheek humor will buy off most of the target audience. And Arnie? He's indestructible.

Schwarzenegger can still hold the screen, but these days he grinds through his one-liners like a truck driver taking a steep hill ...

The result is diverting enough for a low-expectations Friday night, but the ingredients were in place for something more.

Not the most iconic choice for Schwarzenegger to announce that he's back, but not one that's completely prefab, either.

Director Jee-woon Kim (I Saw the Devil) handles the action sequences effectively if not spectacularly, though The Last Stand could have dispensed with the occasional attempts at sobriety and cut straight to the chase (or chases).

The script is a mess, built on lazy clichés, stilted jokes and easy payoffs. What the movie does have, though, is enthusiasm.

Slapdash in its character portraits, the movie is slambang in its action scenes; it springs to life whenever it promises death.

To call "The Last Stand" gratuitously violent is to pay the movie a compliment. It's sort of the whole point.

Dig just a shade beneath the surface, trade in the text for the subtext, and a more interesting picture emerges - a little richer, sadder, almost poignant.

[Kim] can't disguise the fact that Schwarzenegger, playing this seen-enough sheriff, doesn't so much look world-weary as simply tired.

For sure, The Last Stand is no Terminator, but it is a fun, if predictable, action-thriller.

"The Last Stand" is the movie equivalent of an idiot who, to avoid scorn, starts acting like an even bigger idiot, so as to get in on the joke, too.

"The Last Stand," Arnold Schwarzenegger's first star vehicle in more than a decade, is not a sci-fi film, though it does travel back in time.

To call this a good movie is really a stretch; it's more like 38 percent of a good movie. But it probably has just enough dumb fun and pointless violence and car chases to seem like a highly viable option for large numbers of people this weekend.

Arnie is, as he likes to say, "back." And he keeps lumbering onward - thrashing and bashing about in a movie with an itty-bitty dino-sized brain.

The film is cheerfully, irresistibly destructive -- an old-fashioned, Rio Bravo shoot-'em-up with the hicktown spirit of Tremors, though it isn't as good as either.
