Reminds me of Metallica in Some Kind of Monster, where they'd just kind of all play loud at the same time and occasionally stumble upon an okay-sounding bit that they'd then record. The Last Stand is kind of like the St. Anger of Arnold movies.
The film, though underdeveloped, is rife with big guns, flippant one-liners, improbable battles, high-octane car chases and way too much testosterone - all the hallmarks of a classic Schwarzenegger film.
As action movies go, it's okay. There are some good ideas underneath and an attempt develop them, but only an attempt. And though time has moved on, Schwarzenegger himself hasn't. As a hero's triumphal return goes, it's more of a whimper.
While it is entertaining and well-paced in that pre-Sandy Hook kind of way, it might be impossible to actually enjoy. And if you do enjoy the film, you might be ashamed to share this fact on your Facebook page.
