"Not in his town. Not on his watch"


Film Synopsis:

After leaving his LAPD narcotics post following a bungled operation that left him wracked with remorse and regret, Sheriff Ray Owens (Schwarzenegger) moved out of Los Angeles and settled into a life fighting what little crime takes place in sleepy border town Sommerton Junction. But that peaceful existence is shattered when Gabriel Cortez (Noriega), the most notorious, wanted drug kingpin in the western hemisphere, makes a deadly yet spectacular escape from an FBI prisoner convoy.

With the help of a fierce band of lawless mercenaries led by the icy Burrell (Stormare), Cortez begins racing towards the US-Mexico border at 250 mph in a specially-outfitted Corvette ZR1 with a hostage in tow. Cortez’ path: straight through Summerton Junction, where the whole of the U.S. law enforcement, including Agent John Bannister (Whitaker) will have their final opportunity to intercept him before the violent fugitive slips across the border forever. At first reluctant to become involved, and then counted out because of the perceived ineptitude of his small town force, Owens ultimately rallies his team and takes the matter into his own hands, setting the stage for a classic showdown.


My Take:

There is little need for a more in-depth plot breakdown than what is provided by the synopsis above. As genre fans we pretty know what is coming, the question is, is it worth an hour and a half of our time? The answer is yes, especially if you’re a fan of Arnold Schwarzenegger and his particular brand of action hero. I mean don’t get me wrong, clichés abound and there is nothing we haven’t seen before however I appreciate the fact that the script doesn’t try too hard to be overly ambitious and keeps the noticeably silly humor to a minimum. There are a few eye rolling moments but predominantly speaking the action set pieces, gun play and physical encounters (even those involving the 66 year old Arnold) don’t extend far beyond the realm of action movie plausibility.

This is the first American film directed by Kim Jee-woon, one of the top names from contemporary South Korean cinema. He brings plenty of enthusiasm along with a stylish flair to the production. The characters are well defined within the construct of the simple narrative and the action adheres to the standard formula that we have all come to expect and appreciate from the genre. Arnold is Arnold and handles the lead role in assuredly typical fashion while capably supported by a decent cast that capably handles their respective roles. So, does The Last Stand live up to the “Arnold is back better than ever” build up? Not really, but it is an entertaining popcorn flick that is an appropriate vehicle for the iconic action star to return to the big screen.


Parental Guide:

The rating is for strong bloody violence throughout and language.



AUDIO/VIDEO - By The Numbers:
REFERENCE = 92-100 / EXCELLENT = 83-91 / GOOD = 74-82 / AVERAGE = 65-73 / BELOW AVERAGE = under 65

The last stand comes to Blu-ray Disc from Lionsgate HE featuring 1080p AVC encoded video that has an average bitrate of 36 Mbps and lossless DTS-HD 7.1 Master Audio sound that has an average bitrate of 6 Mbps.

This is a great looking video presentation that has a clean, filmic appearance that falls just shy of the definitive delineation offered by the best high definition available on Blu-ray Disc. Images onscreen exhibit plenty of fine rendering and crisp definition that on occasion rises to higher levels especially during close ups which can be very revealing. Long range shots appear resolute with good dimensional depth and notable object detail. The geographic locations and vista views featured in the film look magnificent in high definition. Bright exterior segments are punchy with crisp dynamic whites and appreciable texture. Colors aren’t overly engaging as the palette is limited to sepia tones and drab secondary hues that don’t offer much to catch the eye. Rendering is excellent though and the balance is kept in proper focus which mates well with the films overall visual perspective. Fleshtones are tonally divergent and appear lifelike in depiction. Blacks are rich/dynamic and shadow detail is quite good which reveals plenty of visible delineation in dark backgrounds and low lighting. I didn’t detect any deleterious artifacts or other video related anomalies.

The lossless DTS-HD Master Audio soundtrack makes frequent use of the entire surround platform and features a highly detailed presentation that has excellent dynamic range which enables it to be bombastic at one moment and intricately nuanced the next. Dialogue is definitive and appreciably lucid through the center channel as it mixed just slightly in front of the left/right channels within soundstage. I never had any trouble distinguishing even the slightest changes in the pitch or inflection of voices. Imaging and channel separation is excellent which draws out both large and small sound elements and allows their directional correlation based upon the onscreen events to be definable. Depth and dimension are strong as the front and rear soundstages combine to immerse the listening position in a seamless blend of ambient and discretely placed effects during the action based sequences. This is a great sounding lossless presentation that compliments the film quite nicely.

Bonus Features:

  • (HD) Not in my town: Making The last stand – 28 minute featurette

  • (HD) Cornfield chaos: Scene breakdown – 11 minute featurette

  • (HD) The Dinkum firearm & historic weaponry museum tour – 11 minute production featurette

  • (HD) Actor-cam anarchy: With Johnny Knoxville & Jaimie Alexander – 10 minutes

  • (HD) 6 Deleted scenes

  • (HD) 7 extended scenes

  • Digital Copy

  • Ultraviolet Digital Copy




Final Thoughts:

Arnold Schwarzenegger is back as a sleepy border town sheriff that stands between a dangerous cartel kingpin on the run and freedom over the Mexican border in The last stand. It doesn’t bring anything new to the genre table but I found it to be an entertaining popcorn flick that appropriately returns the iconic action star to the big screen. The last stand comes to Blu-ray from Lionsgate Home Entertainment featuring excellent high definition video quality engaging DTS-HD 7.1 Master Audio surround sound and a pedestrian assortment of bonus supplements that offer insights from the cast/crew while looking behind the scenes at the production. If you’re an Arnold Fan this one is worth checking out.

Went in to the theater looking for a goofy, Arnold thriller, came out with exactly what I expected! If you don't have high expectations, you will be happily surprised!

I've always liked Johnny Knoxville in the jackass movies and his other movies, but when I saw the trailer for this, doing his same ol schtick but even more so in this 1 it looks like, it made me for some reason think, I think I'm getting kinda tired of the guy. In this he just looks like he's more annoying than anything in it.

Hopefully that's not the case.

I'll watch it for Arnold though. Glad this got good AV scores too.

Thanks Ralph. smile.gif

Watched this film twice within 2 weeks. The video was superb. My friends absolutely loved the clarity which was not simply due to my Sammy ES6300 but he video quality itself. The sound was really good too especially with the car scenes. Well recommended

This movie is made for the JVC's, there are many low APL scenes that look fantastic on the RS55.

It was a fun action movie to watch, definitely worth checking out.

My blu-ray copy of The Last Stand arrived today and I just finished watching it. The acting and script were quite weak in my opinion, and most of the humor wasn't all that funny. The audio and video were good, though.

If I had to do over again, this would be a rental only for me.

Saw it last night. Strictly a B movie and it wouldn't even be worth watching without Arnold, but I have to admit I enjoyed seeing him back in something other than a walk-on part. The PQ and AQ were great on my system. Now if only he had picked up the big gun during the long street battle. That would have brought back memories. Still, I put it in my watch again section.

*SPOILER ALERT*

Corvette ZR1 , but they don't drive it fast. They just speed the camera up. Lame.

They also use the slanted nose of the car as a ramp to flip an SUV over at highway speeds. The Carbon Fiber bodies Corvette receives scuffed paint.

This movie SUUUUCKED. If you were hoping for a cool car chase movie with a badass sportscar, sort of a modern day vanishing point or something similar, you won't be impressed.

Want an example of how to do a GOOD car chase ? Go watch Jack Reacher again. It gets everything correct, and puts movies like Fast n Furious and Transporter to shame.

My review is bitter because this movie had a decent premise and a lot of potential to be a good movie. Instead it just nails every bad cliche and even does those poorly. We need a movie that takes a neat car and showcases it in a way that keeps action movie fans and car-guy-gearheads happy at the same time.

You know things are in a sad state when Ken Block, a glorified shoe salesman can make a 4 minute youtube video of him dancing a car about in a big Monster energy vinyl wrap in San Francisco and have it be more interesting than an entire 90 minute big budget film.

Is the 7.1 track a true 7.1 or an upconverted 5.1? I just rented this and noticed that the audio is only a 5.1 DTS Master Audio. If I like the movie enough, I may make get the retail version just to have the real 7.1 track.

I purchased this film on Blu-ray based on this review. However, I was very much disappointed with the move. The audio and video were great. But the action scenes were completely unbelievable--even for someone like me who goes into films like this with my suspension of disbelief knob turned all the way up. The shooting was either unbelievably accurate or unbelievably inaccurate--all the time, every time. And what bad guy decides to use an antique pistol as his primary weapon? The car chase special effects were just downright silly. And Arnold delivered his most wooden performance since ... well ... since anything I can remember. I think he did a better job in Conan if that puts it in perspective for you. If you're considering this purchase you should simply wait to see it on HBO first. But, with that being said, you'll still be wasting 90 minutes of your life--life that might be better spent having sex or pulling weeds in your garden.

Oh, it wasn't that bad. Now those FAST & FURIOUS movies...those are far greater wastes...in every conceivable way.

For those that dislike shaky, handheld camera work, this movie has a fair amount of it. Watched all the way through because we are Arnie fans but this movie does not warrant a repeat view and definitely not a purchase.

I watched this the other night and had a good time with it (after sitting through Dark Skies any movie becomes an Oscar nominee). I wouldn't buy it but it's a decent enough rental just to test out your system. A lot of the spoken dialogue sounded a bit strange to me. Was this Kim Jee-Woon's first American movie? That could possibly explain some of the dialogue awkwardness if English isn't his first language. Not that I'm trying to sound offensive.

Also, I have a confession to make: The Fast & Furious movies are guilty pleasures of mine. biggrin.gif

Hi Ralph ! you summed up this one perfectly and while yes there where the very predictable moments you knew where coming it still had enough momentum to keep me entertained. The audio and video where good as well with some great moments and overall complimented the movie well, I can walk away from this one with more than I expected and to be honest I kinda liked it wink.gif

Rented this movie from Red Box a few weeks ago knowing nothing about it other than it was an Arnold movie. I wasn't expecting much therefor I thoroughly enjoyed it. I'm a car guy but I was able to look past the ZR1 driving for hours on end over 100mph without stopping for gas, or the fact that the fake ZL1 could keep up with the ZR1.

Anyway, great rental movie.
