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!

Released from his gubernatorial duties, Arnie is back, doing what he does best: delivering sardonic one liners, firing implausibly large guns, and powering through a deeply flawed storyline with the entertaining sub-text that he's in on the joke, and it's ok for us to laugh too.

The Last Stand is a (mostly) non-stop action film on a familiar theme: an escaped outlaw has to run the gauntlet to get over the border, with just one man standing in his way. Small town sheriff Schwarzenegger is that one man. In his heyday he would have done it all on his own without even breaking sweat. But Schwarzenegger is now older and somewhat wiser, and he's added the repertoire of pain and exhaustion to his big guns and big muscles staples. It does no harm to the one-liners, but it lends a new realism to the fights.

Lest you should think that Schwarzenegger has sold out to realism, the oldness and tiredness is the only thing about this film that remotely connects with our world. Road duels between ultimate performance sports cars which, paradoxically, are as tough as jeeps, handguns whose recoil knocks an ordinary man over, but which Arnie shoots with a bent arm, a car explosion which utterly destroys the vehicle, but leaves the man sheltering right behind it merely winded, and the inevitable dozens of rounds of ammunition required to kill anyone who is actually significant in the plot.

That's not a criticism: this is a high energy action romp, and we're not looking for realism any more than we are in Bugs Bunny.

This probably won't be regarded as an Arnie classic, but it's a pumping and hugely entertaining evening's watch, especially if you turn a big stereo up loud to assist it.

'The Last Stand' is an action film and Arnold Schwarzenegger's come back vehicle that released in 2013. The reception upon release from critics was deservedly mostly positive. The box-office performance was moderate and below expectations.

The story follows an aging quiet town sheriff and his deputies who must apprehend a dangerous criminal that has escaped from Police Custody.

I am a massive fan of Arnie's who for me defined the action movies in the 80's and early 90's with the classic groundbreaking, Terminator 2: Judgement Day. I was mega excited to hear the announcement of his return to films. Even more exciting was that he was teaming up with cult Korean director, Kim Jee-woon who has made crackers like A Tale of Two Sisters, A Bittersweet Life and I Saw the Devil.

The outcome exceeded my expectations with solid entertaining non-stop action, enjoyable R-rated violence, stylish shoot out scenes, loud explosions and funny one liners throughout. The ending is great as well with Arnie being involved in an engaging gritty fist-fight that gave me the goosebumps.

Schwarzenegger means business as the Sheriff and his charismatic return as an action hero is a fantastic watch. Yes, he is old and even he acknowledges it, but he still kicks serious crap out of bad guys. Apart from Arnie, my pick of the lot are Johnny Knoxville and Luis Guzmán who provide the comic relief. Guzmán actually owns a few scenes with his overall likeable performance.

The direction by Kim Jee-woon on his American debut is first rate and that's with toned down violence compared to his Korean flicks. He couldn't have done any better. I thoroughly enjoyed his action-fest.

'The Last Stand' is a hair-raising guilty pleasure for Arnie fans. He is back as promised.

Positive.
1)Arnold Schwarzenegger as Ray Owen's just about holds this movie together & delivers a more realistic action film his first movie since Terminator 3.
2)The very beautiful Jaimie Alexander as policewoman Sarah Torrance.
3)Arnies quote "I'm the sheriff",Great line.

Negative.
1)This has a slow build up & takes around 40 minutes before Arnie shoots someone & kicks some ass.
2)Action scenes needed a bit more zip to them.

Dvd info.

2)Keep a eye out when Luis Guzmans character Mike when he finds a sword in Lewis garage it is the same sword Arnie used in his 2 Conan movies.
3)Rumours of Sonny Landham (Billy in Predator) has an appearance in this movie although i never seen him throughout this film.

Review.
A drug cartel Gabriel Cortez escapes a prisoner convoy during his transfer to a courthouse & then evades capture by the FBI.

He drives in his specifically modified car driving 200mph to get to the Mexican boarder with an army of gang members & a hostage in tow.

The only thing standing in Cortez way is a sleepytown named Sommerton Junction run by former FBI agent & now the town's sheriff Ray Owen's & his very small inexperienced police unit they are the last line of defence between Cortez & freedom crossing the boarder to Mexico.

Who will be victorious in the face off as sheriff Owen's decides to make one last stand against Cortez.
