  • The movie equivalent of an idiot who, to avoid scorn, starts acting like an even bigger idiot, so as to get in on the joke, too...It takes everything and nothing seriously, depending on what the filmmakers think they can get away with at any given moment, and the result, while not painful to watch, is ridiculous. show more

  • The movie comes up with a couple of tender moments that could pass for human, and a mano-a-mano climax in which the superhero of yore, the glint in his eye dulled but not extinguished, functions as a weirdly touching tyrannosaurus. show more

  • Almost certainly, The Last Stand will not be Schwarzenegger's last. For better or for worse (and this is somewhere right in the middle), he is back. show more

    ************ this film and laughed throughout the movie; Arnold was funny and his acting wasn\'t too bad. The bad guys were just mean; like they are supposed to be and the townspeople are hilarious. Good film; I\'d give it a 7.5 out of 10.

    The critics are nuts as usual. Nine of us watched this and we all loved it! It has everything you want in an action flick. Great acting, storyline and stunts, with just the right touch of humor. We\'ll watch it again!
