The Last Stand should be first on your must-see list! (by fisherbee1-1)
One of the top names in action again brings us a top notch action movie! Arnold delivers the great performance you expect from such a seasoned star, and the supporting cast really sells the characters they play. The small town set is believable, and portrayed so that you can actually care about them. The bad guys are just the sort that you want to see brought down as they should be. The scenes flow smoothly, the locations are realistic, and the action is outstanding. Add in the rest of the ingredients - chase scenes, shooting, stunts, a dash of humor - and you have all you need for a fun <more>
evening at the movies. 80's action fans will love this one. Even the soundtrack was great; not one single thing that made me say, "Now why did they have to use that song?" See it on the big screen, and bring it home when it hits disc. Did the first, and plan to do the second. A must for any action collection.
Arnold Schwarzenegger still packs a punch!!! (by RogerCampbell)
Arnold Schwarzenegger returns to the big screen in his first feature film since leaving the governorship in California. At 64 years old Arnold is clearly starting to show his age and does not possess the muscular physique that he once had, but make no mistake about it he still packs a punch when it comes to making action movies. The Last Stand is a very good action packed thriller in which Arnold plays an aging Sheriff who is the only thing stopping escaped federal convict Gabriel Cortez played by Eduardo Noriega and his 200 mph+ Corvette from crossing the United States border into Mexico <more>
to gain his freedom. There is never a dull moment in this movie that combines action with occasional comedy and features a cast of bad guys that you just love to hate. It also shows that Schwarzenegger still has that on-screen charisma that made him a mega-star in the 80's and 90's. Johnny Knoxville co-stars in this movie that is very entertaining and well worth your money to go see.
Great Fun dont listen to want to be critics (by pattonfever)
This film is a fantastic return for our lost action hero. i guess people were expecting citizen cane as an action movie. if you read the bad reviews here by people who think they know how to critique a film you may miss a great time. you can pick apart any movie if you want. some reviewers say the couldn't suspend disbelief, yet those same reviewers believe in giant talking robots from outer space. oh that can fly and transform into certain objects. and i like iron man, but why don't they pick that apart? they just want to hate. or to get a rise out of people. simple as that. so <more>
listen to the real critics if you don't believe me. believe roger ebert. he knows what hes talking about. unlike the others. and no its not a 10 star movie. just balancing out the haters.
Arnold is BACK ! ...in Jee-Woon Kim's fast paced, action packed popcorn film... (by bcbell79)
I grew up watching Arnold, I own every film of his, I am what you would call a serious Schwarzenegger fan. I have waited a decade for his return to the cinema, and I wasn't disappointed. The Last Stand isn't perfect, but Arnold fans can rejoice, for he truly is back!!The premise for those that haven't watched the trailer a dozen times like me is a Mexican cartel boss Eduardo Noriega has escaped custody during transport and is heading to the Mexican border, and he is going to get there by going through the sleepy town of Sommerton, Arizona. Arnold is the Sheriff in this sleepy <more>
little town, and he is the FBI's last hope at stopping the ruthless gangster. This movie is full of intense, bloody action, exciting car chases thanks to a supped up Corvette ZR1 with over one thousand horsepower! and funny one liner's. The film never takes itself too serious which is good thing and is surprisingly funny throughout. Arnold's acting is a little rusty, but he more than made up for it in the action scenes. And the many action sequences were exciting and bloody, the theater kept cheering out loud. The pacing was perfect, the film flew by.The cast was great...Luis Guzman is hilarious as Arnold's Deputy, Forest Whitaker as the lead FBI agent, Peter Stormare as the maniacal "right hand man" villain, Johnny Knoxville as the town clown, Harry Dean Stanton as the crotchety old farmer, the list goes on...The film was everything I wanted from an Arnold movie, it's fun ! , full of fast paced action and lots of funny one liner's. The non-Arnold fan probably won't get much from this, but this movie was made for Arnold fans, and it delivers.
Just got back from seeing the last stand, overall a great action movie that action fans as well as schwarzenegger fans will like. Those of you expecting to see academy award winning performances or great story telling should probably avoid this. This is a straight up action movie filled with unapologetic violence, the way it should be. The movie starts off a little slow but once the action picks up it never lets go. Arnold may be looking his age a little bit but that doesn't slow him down at all. Johnny knoxville is also good as the comedy sidekick and he has his moments to shine, him and <more>
arnold are definitely an odd couple. Welcome back arnold, here's to more great action movies from an action legend! Looking forward to seeing the tomb next! Schwarzenegger and stallone EPIC!!!
NFS:Most Wanted---the official film. (by interquam)
Arnie's back!! The best bad guy since demolition man: wesley snipes----Eduardo Noriega takes over. A man made for next gen action and scifi movies... An actor as method as vin diesel in pitch black and peter weller in screamers without any idiotic invincibility quotient. What john mclane bruce willis is to a good guy, Eduardo Noriega is to a bad guy.This film makes the Fast and Furious franchise look like a skit at a Kindergarten school.Earth's 2 best vehicles of this early millennium and first century are in this film with all their glory being exhibited.Jee-Woon Kim and team have <more>
clearly done it.A solid screenplay with action without making it look like a hoax and attention to detail without monotony is remarkable. Maybe Ridley Scott should pass the alien franchise over to him and his team. A strong contender for even the Next Terminator.Arnie has outdone himself, as does every single actor/actress in this film. Characterisation of every actor is worth an applaud, with no redundancies.Luis Guzman's best role thus far. An actor compared to none.Forest Whitaker's most worthy role in a film thus far. You see his 'real' side.Thor The trashiest film of the Millennium actress Jamie Alexander is highly subtle and not loud.Sonny Landham!!!! couldn't recognize!!-- Arnie's co-star from predator.Stormare gets well exploited and tested as an actor.Knoxville is still the best flippant comedian.Harry Dean Stanton!!! gets his brains splattered out. At 80+ a nice welcome and looking good. Welcome Sir!! nice to see you Never Forgotten . The last time he got his skull punctured was when the Alien Balaji Badejo projectile tongue went berserk.All in all the best one could ask for. Better than prometheus and dredd and makes dark knight returns look like fungi at the bottom of the trash bin.Wont say much....Watch it!!
Great movie, pity it isn't doing well at the Box Office. (by briangcb)
Let me start by saying this is a straight-up good guys vs. bad guys, shoot 'em up action movie. Would you expect anything less from Ahhnold? I'll say that I was happy to hear Arnold was returning to the big screen for starring roles once his Governorship was over. I've been a die hard Arnold fan since I was 6. Sure he's a senior citizen now...but he's ARNOLD! The trailers for this movie don't really hide anything, it's presented exactly how it is. It's an action movie that doesn't take itself too seriously. The movie does try and have these heartfelt <more>
moments which come off more as cheesy than anything else. But I will give the movie props for actually trying to develop its characters to the point they're not just cardboard cut outs. They have personality and emotions so you actually care if they live or die. Which is more than I can say for most movies of this type. Unfortunately the movie seemed to be relying heavily on Arnold's return to the big screen to put butts in the theatre seats. The movie only made $6 million on its opening weekend. Making it the bottom of the barrel at the box office. However I went and saw it on a Tuesday night at 7pm and the theatre was packed. So perhaps word is travelling that it's a fun movie and it'll be able to make some money back. Not that I'm crying for Arnold's bank account but it's a shame when a good movie doesn't do well.
As a fan of both star Arnold Scwarzenegger and director Kim Jee Woon I am satisfied with this film. The Last Stand is the US director debut of Kim Jee Woon as well as the first Scwarzenegger non cameo role since T3. The film is real good actually as it looks great, fast paced with a good amount of bloody action . The tone is serious enough but still has a good amount of tongue in cheek humor and the usual Arnie one liners. Arnold plays a sheriff in a small southwestern town and defends said town against an army of drug runners looking to escort their escaped drug kingpin back to <more>
Mexico.Good support cast with Forest Whitaker and Luis Guzman.Johnny Knoxville's screen time is minimal thankfully and doesn't ruin the film . I found The Last Stand to be a very enjoyable action flick as well as the best movie Arnold made in a long time. I hope the film does well as it is a good film and strong comeback for Arnie as well as great US debut for Kim Jee Woon.
Overall, I really liked this film. I cheered, I winced, I threw popcorn in excitement! (by madrex2001)
This is it Arnold Fans our long wait is finally over. Our favorite action hero is BACK! But after being out of the spotlight in a leading role for over a decade, as fun as Expendables 2 was, it doesn't count is Arnold really returning to the silver screen with the same flair for action and entertainment that he used to? Read on to find out!Schwarzenegger plays Ray Owens, a former LAPD Narcotics Agent who left the big city excitement after a bad incident to become the sheriff of the sleepy New Mexico border town of Summerton Junction. Summerton is a town where nothing exciting happens, <more>
except for the occasional drunk and disorderly, or petty theft arrest, but this sleepy town is about to get a rude awakening. A notorious drug lord Gabriel Cortez, portrayed by Eduardo Noriega, escapes from FBI custody and starts making his way towards the Mexican border at 250 mph in a stolen, custom Corvette ZR1. Its faster then any chopper. Cortez also has an FBI agent hostage in tow as he dodges police barricades and evades helicopters, usually with very bloody aftermath.The FBI task force leader Agent Bannister, played by Forest Whitaker, thinks it's a slim chance that Cortez will pass through Summerton, but Arnold's character knows something isn't right. Immediately suspicious of some visitors one being played by the amazing Peter Stormare , the Sheriff knows they clearly don't belong there.In his recent autobiography, our favorite action hero describes his part in Last Stand as "a great, great role." "The sheriff knows if he succeeds," he writes, "it will mean everything to the town. His reputation is on the line. Is he really over the hill or can he do it?"With 'Last Stand,' Arnold has his own reputation to re-solidify as leading man. Again, the Megastar and Governor of California hasn't anchored a movie since 2003′s 'Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines', and at 65, some worried that he's past his prime as an action hero. Is Arnold over the hill or can he still do it?From this Arnold fans perspective, the answer is, "Hell Yes!" The action looks great; the acting gets better and better as the film runs, and there are a few gruesome kills that will make any gore fan happy!The screenplay by Andrew Knauer doesn't give Arnold as many of his signature one- liners. Many of them, such as "How are you, Sheriff?" to which he replies "Old!", was already given away in the trailer. But don't worry, there are a few more hidden gems.Arnold and his team, who consist of the moody veteran played by Luis Guzman, the rookie cop played by Zach Gilford, the beautiful but skilled deputy played by Jaimie Alexander, her screw-up ex boyfriend who is stuck in the towns single jail cell played by Rodrigo Santoro, and of course, the crazy, eccentric goof-ball, who happens to own a small museum of artillery, played by Johnny Knoxville, ban together to become the 'Last Stand' between Cortez and freedom.The shootouts are all high tension, and there is plenty of high octane car chases for you Fast and Furious fans, plus there are some amazing visuals as well. Kim Ji-Woons entry into US theaters keeps his edgy style engraved within the heart of the picture, and is just as much fun as 'The Good, The Bad, and the Weird', yet still manages to capture traditional Hollywood flair.There is one thing about this picture that I want to warn you about, it takes a little while to really get going. It's a large cast, so each one needs a bit of an introduction and story to make you care, so I understand. But the great juicy Arnold action starts little more then half way in. And at times, I felt myself wishing there was just a LITTLE more Arnold. But all in all it's not a huge deal. Our Hero still steals the show here, as he should.Overall, I really liked this film. I cheered, I winced, I threw popcorn in excitement! Is it as good as, say... Terminator? Of course not, but it's on par with, if not better then, the likes of Eraser or Collateral Damage! And I really liked Eraser.Arnold is Back! With this being his first entry into cinemas in a long while, and it turning out so well, I'm now very excited for his next pictures 'The Tomb', 'TEN', and of course 'Legend of Conan'! Get your ass to the Theaters!8 out of 10 stogieswww.thearnoldfans.com
