    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    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

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    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

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    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

    The script is a mess, built on lazy clichés, stilted jokes and easy payoffs. What the movie does have, though, is enthusiasm. show more

    Todd McCarthy The Hollywood Reporter

    Not the worst but is very far from the best film the star has made in his career. show more

    The director does pull off a pretty magnificent cornfield car chase - two sleek vehicles cut through a thick, shaggy carpet of maize like souped-up harvesters, the movie's way of saying that the simple country life needn't be devoid of thrills. But Jee-woon takes too long to wrap things up, fumbling repeatedly on his way to an ending. show more

    Is it a coincidence that classic action is making its comeback at the same time Schwarzenegger is making his own? Hey, he warned us he'd be back. show more

    One of its most refreshing aspects is its acceptance of both western and action-film conventions on their own terms, refusing to regard itself as operating outside of or superior to the genre. show more

    The Last Stand marks the American debut of the Korean director Jee-woon Kim, who delivers a half-dozen quality kills that will leave audiences squirming and then laughing at the sheer audacity of it all. show more

    Rick Groen The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

    Dig just a shade beneath the surface, trade in the text for the subtext, and a more interesting picture emerges – a little richer, sadder, almost poignant. Arnie is back again, yet now, as a storied immigrant nearing the end of his tale, he's become an odd sight to behold. 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!

    Arnold has made some very entertaining movies...this isn\'t one of them. Bad acting, hokie lines, and lame story line doomed this film to \"Rotten Tomatoes\" status. If you\'re also an Arnold fan save yourself the heart ache of seeing Arnold at his worst.

    i don\'******* this movie yet, but maybe, Arnold must be Terminator in \"The last standing\". Absolutely classic lol.

    This was an EXCELLENT movie. It did what it was supposed to do--ENTERTAIN. Good story line, great characters, action and plot. Loved Forest, Arnold and Johnny, too. IGNORE THE CRITICS!!

    Arnold is back. He plays his age and plays it good. As usual great action and a cool story. Comedic relief that fits well. I really liked this movie. Highly recommended.

    Arnold\'s new movie (another shoot-\'em-up) is funny. I laughed a lot and was particularly amused by Johnny Knoxville. Is he really nuts? The story is simple: a dangerous prisoner escapes in a very creative way and heads for the Mexican border. Arnold plays the sheriff in a border town, hoping to keep the prisoner this side of the border. Is this a great movie? No. It was just a pleasant way for two retirees to spend a cold January afternoon.

    its an Ok popcorn flick, I do have to say he is way better here than in \'The Expendables\' 1 & 2. Its a good solid cast and they are holding thie own except Forrester, he seems to just be goofing off but I guess that was a character choice
