Ok, so I was not expecting much on this. Yes, I do admit I like some of Arnold's older movies. I thought what the heck and decided to watch it. The supporting cast was actually pretty interesting. Did not expect it to work the way it did but it really worked on ok. The did the right thing by making some of the over the top scenes actually funny yet still had you engaged to in the story without making it cheesy. I was thinking that Arnold would look like my granpa trying to kick ***but he actually did fit the roll of the butt kicking sheriff decently. There is a scene that gets pretty physical and it I was sold. The overall story is part feasible and part semi plausible but it stayed together. It did not follow the same cadence of the last few action movies Arnold did last so it felt more refreshing and interesting to watch. Aside from any of the negatives it was overall fun and funny to watch. Good experience all around. I say check it out!

I think the movie was quite great, had it's tears of sadness, to just plain out laughter, to OMG moments of explosions!! This movie was a roller coaster ride! Loved it !

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.

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.
