    The Last Stand [Blu-ray] [2013]

    This is pure guilty-pleasure cinema. You know you can't defend seeing lots of nameless guys in black suits and machine guns mowing down people and that there's only a bullet here or there that might get one of our good guys (and I mean, y'know, Luis Guzman, who is always fun to watch in that very familiar character-actor way by the way, same for Harry Dean Stanton's walk-on), and it hearkens back to that time in the 1980's and 90's when Arnold Schwarzenegger dominated cineplexes with this kind of action trash. But over time, as super glossy and hyper-kinetic and chaotically-shot cinema floods theaters, this almost comes as something of a refreshment. How do I simply say "I got thrilled by the action, laughed at the craziness in the set-pieces, and loved seeing Arnold tear it up and have one-line retorts: "How do you feel?" asks a towns-person - "OLD!")

    Predictable, but enough surprises to enjoy watchin

    The movie itself is about average, but in general I would say below average for a Schwarzenegger movie (I never miss one of his). After scanning initial reviews, I was going to pass on the movie, but after seeing a trailer I got interested in that it was different than I had expected. After watching it, it was again different than I expected, better than I expected after my initial review point of view, but not quite up to the trailer expectation. There was enough there to be worth picking up the movie if you haven't seen it. The 1000+ horse power car gives it an interesting twist. It wasn't theater worthy, but OK for discount Blu-ray. The HD video and audio are above average. Plenty of extras, but didn't take the 90+ min to watch all. While I have recommended it, it may be worth just renting, unless you're an Arnie fan.

    Poor Blu-ray quality

    My review is not about the performance because I really didn't get to enjoy it. That is because the Image quality is so poor that I couldn't watch it. There was excessive video noise that is unbearable. At first I thought it may have been that one particular disc, so I returned it for another one. The 2nd one revealed the same experience. I first tried it with my Oppo BDP-103 Blu-ray player on my 64" Samsung plasma TV. The noise was extremely annoying and quite large. I then took it to my 40" Sony LED with Panasonic Blu_ray player. Same results. Then to my 32" Samsung LED with Samsung BDP-5900 Blu-ray player, same results. I returned it. I've seen the DVD played at Magnolia on quite large screens and the problem doesn't exist in the DVD version. I think I'll just buy the DVD since Oppo players are great at upscaling to 1080p.

    THE LAST STAND

    Every scene is contrived; a character races across the desert at triple-digit speeds, in a 1000+ horsepower Corvette, without ever needing to stop to refuel. Characters in moving vehicles win a shootout against a barricaded opponent who knows they will be facing trouble. A character standing in the open defeats a squad of FBI HRT operators. A helicopter loses track of a car traveling on the only road for hundreds of miles. The antagonist drives in reverse at, what appears to be, double digit speeds, etc. This movie is one giant facepalm

    Not the best Arnold

    The Last Stand did not have the action, tone or pace that I thought it would. The trailers made it out to be a sort of throwback to action films of the 80s. What we get is a series of not-very-well-choreographed action sequences, much too much plot, shallowly written supporting characters with subplots that seem to go nowhere, and way too much time spent with the bad guys. I guess the film was entertaining enough for what it was, but it never once hit the bullseye for me. Arnold was in decent form, however. I just wish he had a cooler script to return with.

    Arnold

    This movie is Arnold Schwarzenneger proving he can still get after it well past his prime. It starts off with him as a police officer in a quiet town. If there's anything we know about Arnold, it's that he doesn't do quiet. He wasn't even quiet in Kindergarten Cop. He then proceeds to kick butt at an appropriate pace. Thankfully there's real no love interest in the movie, so we don't have to watch him butcher that. If you're looking for that type of thing, Pride and Prejudice is down another aisle. If you want a ridiculous action movie to add to your collection, pick this up.

    I should point out I've had a bit of a difficult time finding this movie on disc, so I was rather surprised to find it in my local store's bargain bin. that said..onto the review proper: some towns have a reputation for being quiet and sleepy, and some hide fierce defenders of the law. in this movie, Arnold and co hold the line against a real 'nice' guy seeking to elude the long arm of the law and escape into mexico. starts slow, ends with a BIG finish. the law's reach is LONG indeed. well worth the purchase.

    A great story for an old terminator

    Arnold is getting older but no less entertaining at destroying the plans of crazy villains and taking care of the good guys. His character is an aging border sheriff whose calm country life goes to heck when a bad guy attempts to cross the border to escape prison. As usual, Arnie is underestimated and spends the next hour or so battling the bad guy and saving the day. Somewhat predictable but well worth the watch, especially if you are an Arnie fan. Of course, the extra features always make owning the DVD an excellent choice.

    Some comical parts and a good bit of action

    This movie was amusing but not overly funny. Takes place in a little southern town by the Mexico border. Arnold is a sheriff and doesn't take 'squat' from anyone. He cares deeply for the citizens of the town he has sworn to protect. The believable'ness of the plot is a little far fetched and there are too many coincidences and conveniences to make this a re-watch, but if you can find this on blu ray for less than $6 I would say pick it up

    Solid Action Fare

    "The Last Stand" doesn't offer anything new to the action genre but that's not necessarily a bad thing. The film does an excellent job or providing a high octane thrilling experience. It relies heavily on the tried and true formula of the action films of yesteryear and that is where its strength lies. It's a fun homage to the heyday of the action genre, the 1980's and 90's. That's all it strives to be and it succeeds immensely in this.

    A good "catch the bad guy" show

    Though the professional critics did not really care for this movie, I thought it was fun. A good mix of action, humor and law enforcement was seen here. Needless to say the story line shows the contempt the Feds always seem to have when they interact with local law enforcement. Big government is not always better. Local people know better their needs. I enjoyed the funny lighter moments this film had.

    Classic Arnold

    This movie is great. Lots of action, some quirky one-liners. Very classic Arnold Schwarzenegger. I could have done without Johnny Knoxville, but even his inane sense of lunacy couldn't detract too much from the film. There are definite times when Knoxville would do something and you think "there is no way, he is that dumb." And yet he keeps doing it. All-in-all, though, the film did not disappoint.

    Arnold up to his "old" tricks

    Welcome back Arnold! It's great to see him back on the horse. I had a sinking feeling when he delivered his opening line (it was really bad execution on his part) but it was all uphill from there. This movie has some great comedic scenes and lines without taking away from the action and the supporting cast was spot on. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Excellent choice for the hardcore Arnold fan.

    Good Action

    If you like action with a lot of gun fire, then this is your film. Arnold brings in action while Johnny Knoxville brings the humor. The story fulfills all the requirements for an action film: a bad guy that needs to be stopped, a hero to stop said bad guy, sidekicks to pick up the stray bad guys and most importantly things blow up. If that is your type of movie this is a good one.

    This type of movie is the only kind I go see at the movies. And if I like it, I will buy it when it comes out on DVD. They don't make many movies I enjoy anymore. This kept my attention at the very start, but I don't understand why they arrested the lady FBI agent at the end. I have watched it several times and still enjoy seeing Arnold and the other cast.

    Ahnold is back in a clever, surprisingly fun good-vs-really nasty guys- actioner. It has a collection of unique characters -- for the genre-- and an imaginative story line that keeps you guessing and smiling at how cleverly fun it is. Directed by a non-English speaking Korean yet! By far Ahnold's best move since leaving Maria. Get it!

    From Korean director Kim Jee-Woon, the director of one of my all time favorite action films, "The Good, The Bad, and The Weird." Once the movie gets rolling it's pretty non-stop with pretty outrageous action and just enough blood. Arnold makes a comeback and even pokes fun at his age a few times. May be Johnny Knoxville's best role to date.

    Much like both Expendables films I went for the nostalgia of the days when I couldn't wait for the next Arnie flick or Stallone, etc. Sure, this is the last gasp, but I'm there for it. Just for fun. If you are going to see The Last Stand may I recommend low expectations and look forward for a fun, if cliche' d, ride.
