I was tepid about seeing this, but the story was great, the action was great, comic relief was ok, but overall Arnold put in a classic performance.
Must see for action fans!

I thought that this movie was not going to be all that great, but I went because it is Arnold was in it. I was really surprised!! I love seeing Arnold back. It was a great film and I did not think it was going to be funny, but it was from the beginning. The story was pretty good too. I recommend this for any action fans, but this movie is not for kids because of the strong langauge and strong violence. The story was pretty good and had good symetry.

Like him, love, or hate him, you HAVE TO RESPECT Arnold! Here is a guy who decides he wants to be a movie star in the 70's. Problem; he is sometimes/ often hard to understand and had literally a Mr Universe body at a time when there were few roles for that look. Again, he has a problem speaking and did not possess a marketable look... or so we thought! I mean it's only a audio/ video business so why should his accent and appearance be a problem, right? Then he jumps into the business with both feet and turns out a list of blockbusters that even some of the biggest names in Hollywood had to envy! I'd say something foolish like a man like that could become governor of the state of California if he wanted to, but then that would put me severely behind the curve! I REALLY RESPECT HIM and love his ability to get it done! He has done many films/DVD's I own and some will always be amongst my favorites like "True Lies" but I'm running out of characters. Buy this or rent it- IT DOES ENTERTAIN!!

After watching the idiotic "Broken City" yesterday (in case you'er not sure, that was a clue - don't see Broken City) The Last Stand was a breath of fresh air! It depends on what type of movie you want to see. If you're looking for an Academy Award for best picture, then see Lincoln or Les Miserables. But if you want to see a good ol' fashioned action movie, put together pretty well and with comedy mixed in then The Last Stand is your movie. For being over 60 years old Arnold Schwarzenegger surprisingly does a good job. I had my doubts going into this movie, and even the first 15 minutes my first thought was "ut-oh, he's too old." But as the film progressed Schwarzenegger nails it. There are a few goofy things, like towards the end if the movie Arnold acknowledges he's an immigrant and with the heavy Austrian accent its an easy guess but in the movie his name is "Sheriff Owens?" - not very European. Also, the movie is a tad bit gory receiving an "R" but worth the 7 bucks!!!

This is really good movie. With Arnold Schwarzenner, rather old, but still impressive. Unfortunately political moment was not for such movie, which is showing how small group (4-5) of american people using their right to collect and wear guns managed to stop international gang on the boundary of USA. It shows FBI and federal authorities corrupted and helping new generation of Mexican drug dealers commit unbelievable crimes and factually rule the world. But small group of americans don't want this happen and opened real war on the Arizona state boundary against international gangsters. Real heroes and Arnold is fantastically good, but now not exactly the right moment in american history to popularize 2nd amendment. That's why not many people coming.
