Any movie that heralds the return of Arnold Schwarzenegger to movie star action hero-dom after his foray into politics was going to bear the dubious honor of being auspicious. For better or worse, The Last Stand takes that honor right down the middle of the road, being neither overly ambitious nor groaningly silly in letting this 66-year-old man mug, grunt, punch, and shoot his way back into our hearts and minds as the Ah-nold screen character for which we had such affection.

Schwarzenegger plays Ray Owens, the sheriff of a tiny Arizona border burg who likes the peace and calm of his job and his townsfolk friends. When the FBI informs him that an escaped Mexican drug kingpin is barreling straight toward all that calm in a supercharged custom car, he sighs and saddles up, locking and loading with his wacky friends and deputies by his side for the inevitable stand. In fact, one might well call it a last stand.

There are very few surprises in how it's all going to play out, right down to the bone-crunching mano a mano fistfight between Ray and the kingpin (Eduardo Noriega) on a makeshift bridge over the border. Ray has a history as a savvy big city cop, and he smells and foresees all the trouble coming his way, even though no one expects him to do much in the way of making any kind of last stand. That includes Forest Whitaker as the flummoxed FBI agent whose screwup sets the stage for the bloody showdown. Others who are surprised at Ray's chutzpah and ingenuity are Peter Stormare (sporting cowboy boots and a weirdly drawling accent) as the kingpin's sadistic lieutenant, and Luis Guzmán as Ray's bumbling sidekick, who unexpectedly pulls out all his stops at just the right moment. Also on hand is Johnny Knoxville as another town weirdo who happens to own an arsenal of antiquated weaponry that's drafted into action for the fiery climax. Like most of the cast--Schwarzenegger included--these guys are pretty much playing it for laughs even though the body count is exceedingly high among the gangs of henchmen and lawmen alike. The violence is also exceptionally gruesome, whether caused by vehicles, firearms, knives, explosions, or fisticuffs, with loving, lingering shots of spouting blood and severed body parts that were clearly designed to prompt cheerfully vocal responses from the audience.

This is the first American film directed by Kim Jee-woon, one of the top names from a booming contemporary South Korean cinema machine, and he has brought an outsider's sensibility and stylistic flourish along with the gory details. People who care about such things might have hoped for a little more auspiciousness from him than Ah-nold's comeback (if it turns out to be that). Otherwise The Last Stand is pretty much exactly what most people would expect from such a thing, and there's certainly nothing wrong with that. --Ted Fry

4.0 out of 5 stars How are you sheriff? Old. 28 Feb 2014
By Simon
Sheriff Owens is a man who has resigned himself to a life of fighting what little crime takes place in sleepy border town Sommerton Junction after leaving his LAPD post following a bungled operation that left him wracked with failure and defeat after his partner was crippled. After a spectacular escape from an FBI prisoner convoy, the most notorious, wanted drug kingpin in the hemisphere is hurtling toward the border at 200 mph in a specially outfitted car with a hostage and a fierce army of gang members. He is headed, it turns out, straight for Summerton Junction, where the whole of U.S. law enforcement will have their last opportunity to make a stand and intercept him before he slips across the border forever. At first reluctant to become involved, and then counted out because of the perceived ineptitude of his small town force, Owens ultimately accepts responsibility for the face off.

Arnold Schwarzenegger makes his much-anticipated return to the big screen in Korean director Kim Jee-woon's hard-hitting U.S. directorial debut.

I enjoyed this film as i'm a fan of Arnie and enjoy his films since Conan the Barbarian.

This movie is full of intense, bloody action, exciting car chases and funny one liner's. The film never takes itself too serious (which is good thing) and is surprisingly funny throughout.

Very well directed by Kim Jee-woon, good acting all round. Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars He is BACK! 12 Jan 2014
By Peter Miller VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is great Arnie action! IT may be a little far fetched in the basic story but who cares. The Sherrif of a small town is an ex drug enforcement officer who has seen too much blood. The town is almost empty because the residents have gone off for the week end.
A vicious drug baron has escaped for custody and is racing for the Mexican border with only Arnie and a couple of deputies and a couple of towns people to help him. Even the FBI cannot stop the criminal.
From there on in it is all blood and thunder with the usual short sharp humour thrown in.
Think of the early Arnie film Commando. Add a lot more experience and action. Who could ask for more on a saturday evening when all the TV stations are poumping the usual rubbish for the brain dead to watch.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great to see Arnie back!! 13 April 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Pretty far fetched but who cares! Great Film, typical Arnold style like back in the old days.
Full of Action with some comedy and "sad bits" The whole cast seems to work together.
Didn't really any boring moments.
"I'm the Sheriff" Great Line as well as when he says "Old" referring that he's getting on a bit.
After such a while away, he's still got it.
If you like his movies, and want an action packed fun film, then watch this!

By the way, very impressive to see a super fast sports car, driving hours and hours and not stopping once to fill up petrol. Very economical and clever driving LOL
