The Last Movie Star strikes a note of banality in its first sequence from which it rarely deviates.April 2, 2018 | Full Review…
In a threadbare movie that doesn't deserve him, Burt Reynolds-playing a fictional version of himself- reminds us what a great actor he can be.March 31, 2018 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
As a commentary on Reynolds' career trajectory, The Last Movie Star is hit-or-miss. What is undeniable, though, is the space Rifkin has created where Reynolds can do what Reynolds does best.March 30, 2018 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
Another example of Reynolds accepting the wrong invitation and winding up in a role unworthy of his stature.
Thanks to its star's all-in commitment, the overtly maudlin film works better than it should ...
The director Adam Rifkin wrote this showcase for Mr. Reynolds, who, like Vic, was a college football player. "The Last Movie Star" effectively allows the ever-assured actor to score a touchdown on an empty field.
Audience Reviews for Dog Years
Dec 16, 2019There are moments in this movie that are cringeworthy; scenes that feel amateurish and lacking any chemistry between the cast. But, by the end of the Last Movie Star I was emotionally overwhelmed by its pathos. Burt Reynolds was always an outstanding actor. Even when he was starring in formulaic movies made with one purpose in mind: open strong because word of mouth was surely not gong to help grosses by week two. Here, Reynolds summons up his ability to connect with the camera like only movie stars can. By the time the movie is over it's difficult not to appreciate this under-budgeted tribute to a real movie star.Aldo G Super Reviewer
