THE LAST STAND Review.Welcome Back Arnold

THE LAST STAND Review
By: RAMA


Let see if RAMA thought the film was worth the wait.


Let us all say welcome back to Arnold and his cheesy one liners. How we missed them! THE LAST STAND reminds us that even though Arnold Schwarzenegger may have failed as both a governor and a husband, .. he’s still got it as an action star. Yes, THE LAST STAND is hilariously bad and at the end it would make you wonder ‘who wrote this piece of crap’ but let’s face it, this is basically, more or less, the same type of action films that we grew up watching Arnold in, where he’d always have the last word after he kills the baddies. So again, welcome back, Arnold!..


After leaving his LAPD narcotics post following a bungled operation that left him wracked with remorse and regret, Sheriff Ray Owens (Schwarzenegger) moved out of Los Angeles and settled into a life fighting what little crime takes place in sleepy border town Sommerton Junction. But that peaceful existence is shattered when Gabriel Cortez (Eduardo Noriega), the most notorious, wanted drug kingpin in the western hemisphere, makes a deadly yet spectacular escape from an FBI prisoner convoy.


I laughed so hard through the entire film. Some of the humor were intentional, thanks to comic relief Johnny Knoxville, and some were because the script and the directing were just awful, but some because after so many years of not having Arnold be a lead action star on the big screen, we’re going through that phase of trying to get used to his image and his heavy accented speech all over again, after so many years, they’ve become foreign (no pun intended), and so seeing his many exaggerated intense facial expressions and hearing him mispronounce words again, serve for a big laugh. This time he plays an old Sheriff wanting to get away from the violent old days but violence is coming to his town and he and his few, bumbling, incompetent posse would have to defend it.

They even throw one cheesy quick romance between Jaimie Alexander and Rodrigo Santoro and it comes across as unnecessary, so that’s another reason for laughter. But this movie offers a lot of elements for us fans of old school action flicks while catering to today’s generation. Firepower, machine gun, good guys outnumbered by the bad guys, even fast car chases. Even Arnold got to fight MMA style with the lead villain, something that I don’t remember Arnold has ever done in his movie in the past, so that’s refreshing.

When you see Arnold on the screen, you’d see how old he’s gotten, even his character doesn’t shy away from that, which is probably one of the reasons he signed on to this job. Arnold knows he’s old, his character knows his better days are behind him, but it ain’t over til the last bullet drop.

So once again, I invite you to join me and say: Welcome back, Arnold!

GRADE: 3 out of 5
