Last Action Hero loses control of itself.
December 6, 2017
It's turned out to be a beef- chicken-anchovy-and-jam sandwich: the ingredients cancel each other out, and become indigestible. By offering us everything, they've given us next to nothing.

The director has to boost the realism of his staging in a rather self-defeating manner. It begins to look, not that he's having it both ways, trading on what he mocks, but that he has painted himself into a corner.

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]

January 11, 2010
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!

The action film goes postmodern, with results that satisfy nobody.

A good idea that is too overblown and poorly executed.

Austin O'Brien, the child actor equivalent of fingernails on a chalkboard.

Schwarzenegger merely goes through the familiar motions in this toothless send-up of cliched' action flicks
