Nice to see an old action star do what he does best: say one liners, look seriously into the camera, kill a ton of people and blow stuff up. That is all.

I rarely say "don't go" to a movie. I usually say, "it depends on what you like"...most movies are attractive to someone.
Not this movie. There are really no redeeming qualities. The persistant reeving of the engine on the "special corvette" as it accelerates down the road is very tiring. There are about 100 of those shots in this movie.
It's not a movie for gun lovers, its not a movie for crime scene lovers, it's not even a movie for fans of arnold and knoxville...of which, I am both.
The story is so elementary though, if you have a 3 year old, they may understand it.

If you like Arnold movies then you with like this! Most of his movies are good or were good at the time. Being too old! . Its just a movie. if 5'1 tom cruise can pull off a tough guy then so can a 70 year old man.. This is nothing new with hollywood. remember the last James bond movie where Roger moore did acrobats when he was old. Saun Connery same thing.. We dont want them to go! They garentee a good time every time. I will watch Arold in his 90's if I can. Putting an age limit on fun mean that we all loose out. Im also glad the music business decided to bring back old farts too. ACDC,. Rolling stones, U2, not sure about VanHalens comback though lol
Feel like a kid again and go see arnold for the fun of it! How many people were inspired forever by Stalones old inspirational movies? these are the movies that effect out lives and who we are! I still get chills when I here the rocky theme at those motovational siminars. LOL How did you feel after watching the English patiant? lol

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!!!

If you're a fan of the Terminator you have to check this out. A bit different from what you would be used to coming from Arnie but still a good action movie with a lot of substance.
