Arnie's Back!

While expectations for the once world's most famous and popular actor return are not high, it helps make this movie better. Since the action stars have aged and took a hiatus till The Expendables reunited everyone, I feel that movies aren't made that way they once where, and that's where Arnold reigns supreme. Nothing you haven't seen before, you still find yourself grinning from ear to ear throughout The Last Stand's total run time. Arnold is a bad-a all over again and hasn't lost much of his comedic timing either. Luis Guzman is still funny, Johnny Knoxville is, well, still a jack-a, and Genesis Rodriguez is soon to be typecast if she doesn't get herself a role where she's more than just eye candy. (She's great in Casa de mi Padre, though.) The violence is fun, the cast works well together, and director Kim Ji-Woon puts it all together so well I'm going to need to see some of his other work. Well worth a trip to the theaters and DEFINITELY worth picking up on DVD if you wait.

This movie was great. Full of fast car chases big explosions killer guns. And let us not forget some of Arnalds greatest one-liners. Johnny Knoxville was funny as hell. All in all if you like a good action movie go see this

Arnold does a good job with his acting in a roll other than being a bad-***terminator. Took my 12 year old son and he really liked it.

The movie started sl-o-ow, had a good middle and an ending that was predictable and a little stereotypical. The story line itself was interesting. Arnold didn't have any known actors that I recognized. I'm glad there wasn't much money put into this movie, because it wasn't worth much. I spent too much money on it myself between my ticket and popcorn. The upcoming previews were good.

The Last Stand: What Did You Expect, Tea and Biscuits and I-messages?

This movie is more interesting when considered in juxtaposition to the nation going bug nut crazy about guns. Not because of the obvious violence inherent in any Schwarzenegger movie, but because of the character Lewis Dinkham (Johnny Knoxville). Dinkham is the person gun control advocates are afraid of: the small down gun nut who is hiding an arsenal. Well, it’s not really the guns he’s hiding, as it is all the ammo. Dinkham has his guns right out in the open, literally on display, in his gun “museum” (open every third Thursday of the month from noon to 3 p.m.). Dinkham’s collection saves the day. After he adds the condition the government need not know about his stash, of course. I thought Hollywood was run by liberal Jews? If so, something’s all screwy here. Dinkham saving the day doesn’t sound like the message the left is espousing. I suppose a gun fetish is ok when one is crazy in the lovable buffoon way and not the Ted Nugent way.
