Consensus: There's nothing particularly distinguished about it, but for Schwarzenegger fans The Last Stand provides perfectly undemanding entertainment.

Wesley Morris

The weaponry is so ridiculously bountiful that the movie must be a defense against something. But it's just another lousy action movie. And for more than an hour, it's less than that.

The result is diverting enough for a low-expectations Friday night, but the ingredients were in place for something more.

Christmas morning. Tiny puppies licking my face. A plate of crispy bacon. The embrace of a loved one. The last forty-five minutes of The Last Stand.

The movie's tongue in cheek humor will buy off most of the target audience. And Arnie? He's indestructible.

Not the most iconic choice for Schwarzenegger to announce that he's back, but not one that's completely prefab, either.

Schwarzenegger can still hold the screen, but these days he grinds through his one-liners like a truck driver taking a steep hill ...

Director Jee-woon Kim (I Saw the Devil) handles the action sequences effectively if not spectacularly, though The Last Stand could have dispensed with the occasional attempts at sobriety and cut straight to the chase (or chases).

John Serba

A throwback action movie that invokes 1980s nostalgia in all the right ways.

Very much in the tradition of a 1980's Arnold action flick. Not great, but definitely enjoyable enough. Johnny Knoxville was a hoot! Don't watch this… More
