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!

'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.

Arnold plays a small town sheriff after leaving an exciting life in the special forces, the LAPD, and as a cyborg. We get to meet the various characters in the town when suddenly a farmer is killed and his land is being prepared... Meanwhile...

In LA, a high level cartel prisoner is being transported, a man who also drives race cars. Before Arnold can say, "I know what's coming" we know what's coming too minus a few details.

Not since "Rocky V" has there been generated so much excitement about a comeback. Arnold plays Arnold, reminding me more of the "Ben Richards" Arnold. Perhaps it is because of his use of the word "negative." The characters and the over the top action make the film worth watching. Unfortunately the characters fell a little short on development and the action didn't go well with the script. The town confrontation scene was haphazardly done. Forest Whitaker plays an FBI man who should have been better developed and could have added some fun to the script. On the plus side, the script was "tight." It didn't give you any wasted scenes which didn't tie in later to the film. I like that aspect of writing.

The day is saved by a gun enthusiast who have fallen out of grace for the moment. A worth while edition to an Arnold collection.

Parental Guide: F-bombs (some with an accent). No sex or nudity.

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.
