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.

I felt like it was trying too hard to be a B movie rip off. It was just too painful to watch in one sitting. I had to go have a glass of wine then come back to it. The acting was bad, the plot was worse and the loop holes were gigantic.

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.
