Quotes

[first lines]
Angel - Tallis' Rifle: 'It has become appallingly obvious that our technology has exceeded our humanity.' Albert Einstein made that statement when the steam powered locomotive was still a wonder of technology. I wonder what theory he would have had for the mess mankind has made of things now. Humankind did the best that it could most of the time, but complacency cost them. The first wave of the Drone assualt destroyed them. They never had a chance to regroup after that first devastating attack. They had ...

A very decent entry from a genre over populated with lesser films
24 March 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Phew! After reading some of the heavy handed 'reviews' here I thought i'd drop by and add my two cents.

Whilst i feel that "The Last Sentinel" fails to live up to the standard set by director Jesse Johnson in his previous film i still think that it ranks as a top notch low budget action film. What turned me onto Johnson was his previous film "Pit Fighter" which i thoroughly enjoyed due to the intensity and rawness of the fight scenes. With Don Wilson on board for this i was expected some more of the same but in hindsight as a newish director i prefer the fact that he's not trying to rest on his laurels and is trying new things as far as he himself is concerned.

So what's so great about "The Last Sentinel"? Well for a low budget film it looks great. Admittedly the majority of the film is quite clearly set in the back lot of some film studio, but what it succeeds in doing is creating a gritty atmosphere that matches the imagery used within the film. I actually feel that "The Last Sentinel" manages to successfully convey an epic feel to proceedings and would go so far as to say that this alone raises this film above many similar entries within the genre.

What else works in favour of the film? Well i have to say that i never thought i'd be able to see Katee Sackhoff as anything other than Starbuck, and with this film being a sci-fi actioner i thought it'd be even harder to see a distinction, but in "The Last Sentinel" Sackhoff delivers a performance that manages to separate her character in every respect from the cigar smoking, hot-headed viper pilot from the Galactica. Fans of Katee might not be happy with her acting in a low budget action flick for fear of this holding her back from a more mainstream audience and to this i have 2 things to say; first of all you have to start somewhere and, as great an actress as Katee is, you can't really expect someone whose first break through role is in a science fiction television series (regardless of the critical acclaim its been receiving) to land Oscar worthy material; secondly Katee delivers a quality performance here and if you are a Katee fan then you'll not be disappointed.

Just to wrap this up i'd like to mention Wilson's performance in this. Let's face it the biggest draw for this flick will be to fans of 'The Dragon' so it's only fair the man gets some mention considering so many people have focused on Katee Sackhoff. It's disappointing that Wilson doesn't get to unleash a barrage of kick ass kick-boxing moves but in every other respect he delivers. Don't get me wrong, his performance in the film is on an even standing with the standards set by himself throughout his career however here he has never looked so good! He's a rough, tough battle hardened veteran and he looks it!

So in conclusion people let's not forget what we have here, a low budget action film starring Don 'The Dragon' Wilson and Katee Sackhoff, directed by a man fresh in his (directing) career where the intention is to deliver a fun trip for all involved. Sure it might not be the most original of films but in a genre defined by such things how can you mark this against it? I've watched loads of similar films in my time and this is one of the few times where i find myself genuinely happy when the credits rolled. Sure it could have done with some decent martial arts fights but that's my personal opinion and i'll not hold that against it. Fans of the genre should check this out and rest assured you're gonna be getting one of the better offerings that the market has to offer.
