    Big Mistake

    Posted
    4thHorseman

    One of my most favorite movies. It's such a jab at Hollywood and it comes off so great. You have a kid (who I can't stand) who gets transported into a movie with his favorite fictional character. However, in the movie, everything is real and they don't know it. So the kid tries his best to show them that it's just a movie. You have a cartoon cat who everyone thinks is just normal, movies Arnold was in is now by Stallone, the cop from T2 walking into the police precinct, just so many small things that make the movie so enjoyable. The villain, played by Dance, is one of my favorite villains. His remarks at people leave me cracking up, and the best thing is when he's in the real world and he shoots someone. HIL-AR-I-OUS. This movie is enjoyable on many levels, both action and humor, and should definately be seen by everyone.

    Great movie/Horrible DVD

    Posted

    I grew up watching this movie! It's fantastic! I feel sorry for anyone who watches this and doesn't get that it's a parody. The one liners are great, and the over the top action is even better. The problem is this terrible DVD. There are no special features, and it's in unwatchable pan-and-scan, full screen! If you've never seen a movie in this format, consider yourself lucky. It looks horribly altered when they digitally move the camera around to show the parts of the picture that the full screen format cuts off. It's very distracting. Do yourself a favor and look for this movie in widescreen. It's totally worth it!

    Bad, But Never Boring

    No extras on Blu Ray? Boo! But this movie is truly Arnold money wise running amuck. As you watch it you can see on paper what a cool idea it was (boy gets pulled into an action movie with his hero? Genius!) I’m guessing the editor feel asleep at the controls because it needed to be trimmed down a lot, a leaner movie would’ve made it incredibly more watchable. But for pure 90’s over the top in every way this can’t be beat

    Too many people miss out on the escapism of movies, the humor and lack of seriousness that can lighten a day. This movie is as campy as it gets -Arnold outdid himself spoofing himself... and that is what so many people miss. This movie is Arnold poking fun at Arnold, and letting us in on the joke. No, there isn't a huge message here, but who needs it???!!! This movie is an action adventure, and if you simply don't take it seriously (and see the campiness as the joke it is meant to be), you'll have a blast.

    Excellent Movie, CHEAP Packaging

    One of my favorite Arnold movies by far! If the newer generation asked about Arnold, this would be one of the 5 movies I would suggest. But if you are expecting a 'stranger things' type retro VHS packaging like Target carries, think again. This is a very cheap ploy of just a slipcover!

    This movie is pure fun and pretty much an inside joke. Arnold still in top form. It certainly bombed in the box office bc a lot of people misunderstood this film when released and still do. It is a parody, plain and simple. Arnold had a lot of guts to do this movie in which it pretty much makes fun of himself and the action genre in general. Great budget title. Pretty good PQ & AQ. Only flaw is a lack of extras.

    If you like Arnold movies, there is a good chance that you'll still enjoy this one. It's definitely not as bad as critics claimed it to be. It's a movie and like all movies, you need to be able to suspend your disbelief a little. Get over yourselves people. It's a fun movie with the typical Arnold action and one liners. What more do you want?

    Arnold past his prime

    This is just a bad movie; there just isn't a gentler way to say this. It doesn't have even close to the quality of humor as Kindergarten Cop (a must-own movie in my opinion# nor the action quality of True Lies #also a must-own movie#. Stick with these along with the Terminator trilogy #T2 of course the best of the three) and you've got the best of Arnold.

    I randomly came across this movie while wandering the aisles, and did not hesitate about the purchase. I loved this movie as a kid, and had to have it. I still haven't opened it yet, but I know that it will hold up to what I remember from years ago. Make this purchase you will not regret it. Enjoy!

    As a fan of Arnold Schwarzenegger, I had to add this to my collection not just based on the movie itself, but also the retro VHS slipcover. I think the studio should have given this movie a 4K upgrade release instead, but this will do for now.

    This is a typical Arnold movie with one-liners and jokes poking fun at Stallone. Not many critics like it but if you love Arnold and his brand of one-liners and humor then it's your kinda movie. It's not violent like some of his films but it's still classic Arnold.

    As a long-time Arnold fan, I was waiting to upgrade my old dvd to blu-ray. This release fits the bill, although I'm a bit let down by not having any extras to watch. That would gave made this disc perfect. Wonderful and clever film. Sorely underrated action movie.

    An Underappreciated Gem

    I've always love this game, it's an obvious parody of the 80s and 90s tropes I grew up with. Never understood why it didn't get more love, but it's a fun and humorous little gem, and worth watching every once in a while.

    If you're a fan of most Arnold movies you'll probably still enjoy this one too. Yeah, this isn't True Lies or Kindergarten Cop, but it's still funny...still has action and still has Arnold. Sit back, relax, and enjoy...And don't forget some popcorn.

    Last Action Hero is an underrated and under apprreciated movie that is both a spoof of and a straight forward 80's style actioner. If you grew up as a kid who loved going to the movies as an escape you will appreciate the message here.

    Okay, it isn't the best movie ever made, but the concept id fantastic, the story is actually pretty good, the acting is what you'd expect. But for an 80's action flick, this one is hard to top for the fun factor.

    This is such a fun movie, it's silly and cheesy at times, but self aware and great at parodying 80s and 90s action flicks. One of the most underrated action movies.

    Bad Movie and Dvd

    'Last Action Hero' really marked the beginning of the end for Arnold Schwarzenegger's film career in my opinion, and for whatever it's worth, this dvd reflects that. Full-screen only with no bonus features.
