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.

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

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!

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.

The more I watch this film, the more I like it. And I loved it at the cinema. I really don't know why it was not received that well. Are people snobs now and think that old school action is past it's day. Are people constantly comparing all Arnie films like T2 etc. That would be unfair as his early films were action classics and you can't beat them.

The Last Stand is basically a western with Arnie as the sheriff of a small town called Summerton. A drug dealer wants to pass through this sleepy little place to avoid the FBI. However Arnie gets wind of this and makes his stand. The action scenes are good, apart from one where a Corvette made of fibre glass! manages to knock a big **** off 4x4 SUV out of it's way and only sustains a tyre mark across the bonnet, or hood if you are American. I am all for a bit a movie bull, but even I had to look away.

Schwarzenegger is on good form considering he had not made a film for 10 years. He dips his toe back into the movie world and manages to pull it off well, with some funny one liners and violent action sequences. It's take a bit of time to get going but it pays off when Arnie bursts onto the screen, runs over a baddie and saves his stranded police officers. The co stars are pretty good, and even amusing. Oh but the main baddie is weak. He is not threatening in any way and looks like he has just walked off the bloody cat walk. S*** I'm afraid to say. He reminds me of the rubbish baddies we had in Die Hard 4 and 5. Where have our Hans Gruber's gone. You know, the really good baddies that are proper b*******s, but we root for them. Not the ones we have nowadays, when they are trying to be charming but comes across as boring.
