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.

It's preposterous and brutal but shamelessly mirthful, stylish and audacious. And Ah-nold? He's still got it.

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.

The Last Stand is not a character study. It's not a dramatic masterpiece. It's a slam-bang action flick-and a good one.

Amy Nicholson

Just bold enough, brutal enough, and dumb enough to feel like a return to form.

J. Olson

It's a film of mythic incompetence, the most uproariously ill-conceived studio picture since Nicolas Cage's "Wicker Man" remake.

Familiar actors in familiar roles? You betcha. But whipsmart direction and editing keep the familiar fresh up until the last reel. Some fun.

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
