Dusty town Sheriff makes a stand in his border town against an escaped Cartel bigshot who has a small army of men planning his escape into Mexico. Great to see Arnold back on screen even if the movie isn't anything too special. It is at least better then his later 90's faire.

I just saw this and I have to say I liked it. But I agree that it wasn't anything special, but really fun to watch.

I can't believe I forgot The Sixth Day. That was one of my favorite movies of his, and that was 2000 if I'm not mistaken. I don't think this was better then that, but compared to End of Days, Jingle All The Way and Collateral Damage, oh yeah.

Kindergarten Cop has a little charm. "Joonyah" eats.

Korean Director Kim Ji-Woon and Ar-Nuld Creates A Throwback to 80's Action Flicks!
I know many of you would be thinking that I went to see “The Last Stand” because it marks the return of action superstar Arnold Schwarzenegger to the big screen (in the lead role) since “Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines“. That would only be partially true. I went to see this film because it marked the debut of Korean director Kim Ji-Woon as a director in an American production. Most Asian directors often don’t really make it that big in Hollywood; aside from action …

Arnold Schwarzenegger.  Love his joyfully entertaining movies, think he's a talentless slug, consider him a legend of action movie cinema or hate him for his personal life turmoil and politics-the man deserved better then to have his return to the silver screen shelved till the January dead hours and then have it turn in a loss.  Especially when it's not half bad.      Arnold now officially in his twilight years of acting wasn't going to come back roaring …

   I know I can’t be the first person to associate Kim Jee-Woon’s amazingly tepid THE LAST STAND with late 80’s / early 90’s action cinema, can I?  This flick feels like it must’ve gathered dust for at least three decades without anyone so much as picking it up and offering a simple rewrite.  Why Arnold Schwarzenegger would choose this project as his ‘comeback from retirement’ picture is a complete loss to me unless he wanted to remind …
