The Last Stand

He’s back!  And, I have to say, politics has improved his line reading.  I’m speaking of Arnold Schwarzenegger in Director Jee-woon Kim’s The Last Stand.

Oddly enough, this film turned out to be the best of this weekend’s trio and, certainly, the most enjoyable. 

 Backed by Johnny Knoxville, Luis Guzmán, Jaime Alexander (TV’s Kyle XY)  and bad-guy Peter Stormare, Sheriff Arnold takes on the leader of Mexico’s top cartel, who has been sprung from the convoy transporting him to the prison and is making a break for the border. 

Exciting chases, spectacular fights and comic interludes make this film a charming and fun comeback for the “governator” that drew audience applaud at the end.

I give The Last Stand a 4 out of 5 for action genre fans.
