Storyline

Sheriff Owens is a man who has resigned himself to a life of fighting what little crime takes place in sleepy border town Sommerton Junction after leaving his LAPD post following a bungled operation that left him wracked with failure and defeat after his partner was crippled. After a spectacular escape from an FBI prisoner convoy, the most notorious, wanted drug kingpin in the hemisphere is hurtling toward the border at 200 mph in a specially outfitted car with a hostage and a fierce army of gang members. He is headed, it turns out, straight for Summerton Junction, where the whole of U.S. law enforcement will have their last opportunity to make a stand and intercept him before he slips across the border forever. At first reluctant to become involved, and then counted out because of the perceived ineptitude of his small town force, Owens ultimately accepts responsibility for the face off.

The Last Stand is Entertaining and A lot of Fun!
15 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Last Stand is a very fast paced movie. It's about a hour and forty minutes and it feels like twenty minutes shorter then that. For this plot it was the perfect pacing for this movie. Woon did a great job here, because this movie could have easily been ruined with a different director. Who could have gave this film a slower pace and made it more drawn out. Which in my opinion wouldn't have worked well with this script. Now do I think they could have done some things better? The critic in me says yes. Not to mention it has it's cliché moments(most movies these days do though) and the fast pacing can cause you to be like wait how did he get here or there and ask yourself what just happen. But I think you can come up with your own explanations on most of those things if you need to.

I didn't feel like Arnold was on his A game acting wise though. He wasn't bad, but I didn't feel he was as smooth with some of his lines as he normally is. Rust and working with a director who doesn't speak English probably had a lot to do with that. Arnold is showing his age bit in this movie as well. Especially in his face on the big screen. That said they never pretended that he was 30 years old in this movie, so that was fine. Overall The Last Stand has exciting shoot outs, fun car chase scenes, and does a great job of mixing in comedy. Those things with it's pacing make it a very entertaining and crowd pleasing movie that should be enjoyed in the theater. I give it a 7/10
