A's Review of Last Action Hero
Last Action Hero(1993)
It seems as time goes by, this movie has gotten better than how it was initially perceived. I remember seeing it in the Theater. I was everything I thought it would be. Action, corny jokes, and an unbelievable story to tie it all together. There are certain movies that you go to with certain expectations. I never expected this to be a serious picture that would contend with the artistic expectations of the Oscar committee. The movie poster said it all, Action flick with a cop and a kid side kick. The movie is a play on the actor Arnold Schwarzenegger and the characters he has played in movies prior to this one. The movie shifts from the over the top unrealistic movie perception of how the real world is; to being thrown in to the real world with movie like expectations. They are two different worlds. Overall its a fun movie that does not take itself too seriously.
