Throwback to the old 90?s actioners which will serve Arnie fan well. It?s pleasantly watchable

Arnold should have retired before he made this sad excuse for a movie.

Arnold the burnout.

Should have stuck to Hollywood so you didn't utterly destroy our imaginary image of you.

It wasn't very good - some good action and bad humour. Must have been a post Governor Arnie role.

Familiar actors in familiar roles? You betcha. But whipsmart direction and editing keep the familiar fresh up until the last reel. Some fun.

...Occasionally funny, if a little silly;The Last Stand has a decent plot, is timed well with slick action scenes and plenty of light gore. This is a worthwhile watch if you're in the mood for it.

While Arnold's ability to do action has decreased over the years, his acting skills have improved at the same time. The Last Stand may not be Oscar-worthy, but its strong cast, smart directing, R-rating, intense action, and healthy dose of humor all add up to one of the most underrated action films of the 21st century.

saw it online, was a fun good movie.

Surprisingly more fun than I was expecting, it's just a pity that Arnold seems a little rusty in the acting department here. Not that he was ever a candidate for an academy award of course. Once the movie gets going it has good pace and certainly entertains. Forest Whitaker's part feels a little forced or contrived at times but he gets away with it. It's no classic but it's certainly worth a watch.

It's time to make a stand and dedicate this review to the unsung heroes of B-grade action movies. Often overlooked for their cartoon-esque violence, tongue-in-cheek humour, desperation for gore and wildly unrealistic stunts, classic action men and movies are a dying bread, or at least an aging one.

In his first post-gubernatorial leading role, the five-time Mr Universe and seven-time Mr Olympia and, nowadays sixty-five still larger-than-life superstar, Arnold Schwarzenegger manages to fill every inch of the screen.

Although his almost indecipherable one liners are less script, more career cannon, his face has been injected with enough Botox to qualify as an addition to Mount Rushmore. The "Austrian Oak" remains an immovable object and the very definition of an all- American action man.

Having seen enough "blood and death" on duty for the LAPD, Sheriff Ray Owens (Schwarzenegger)
resigns himself to the quiet life in the sleepy border town of Sommerton Junction.

He is called back into duty when notorious drug lord Gabriel Cortez (Eduardo Noriega) takes
sexy FBI agent (Genesis Rodriguez) hostage and hurtles them towards the Mexcian border.

Cortez's fierce weaponry laden army of minions are in the process of constructing a bridge across
the narrow ravine separating Arizona and Mexico for his illegal border jump.

As the last line of defense for the whole of U.S. law enforcement, Owens' summons a motley posse; eager but inept deputies Mike Figuerola (Luis Guzmán), Jerry Bailey (Zach Gilford) and Sarah
Torrance (Jaimie Alexander), Sarah's former boyfriend and current jail resident Frank Martinez
(Rodrigo Santoro), and a local gun nut come pseudo-museum owner Lewis Dinkum (Jackass's Johnny Knoxville) whose treasured possessions prove to be extremely useful.

Knoxville's interspersed humour is his usual brand of fun gross out and cringe-worthy, especially when bantering with Arnie, whilst eye-candy Santoro and everyone else serve their purpose by simply coasting along.

The Verdict: From Real-Life Governor to Small-Town Sheriff, this crunching collision between
law and order hits every expected note from an enjoyable old-fashioned tune-out shoot-out.

This is a far better film than this premise deserves. In the masterful hands of Kim Jee-woon, this goes from a schlocky Schwarzenegger action movie to a witty, tongue-in-cheek, shoot-'em-up popcorn flick that you're never bored watching.
