Action icon Arnold Schwarzenegger makes his much-anticipated return to the big screen in THE LAST STAND.

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 (Eduardo 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 (Peter 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 (Forest 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.

Arnie has been back more times than I can remember. This is supposed to be his big come back after taking time out from his polital career. But if memory serves be right his comeback was with Epxendables 2 as the he announced " I'm Back!". Anyhow on reflection his comeback was muted to poor box-office results for this old school actioner. The Last Stand is basically a western with sports cars and massive fire power. the plot is simple, nasty Mexican drug dealer escapes prison and makes a run for the border with the help of his personal army but hindered by Arnie being a small border town sheriff who's town is stuck in the middle. With the help of the good old towns folk and the police department they take up arms to stop him. The first forty minutes is a bit of a drag, but things do liven up afterwards with implausable stunts, implausable plot holes and implausable dialogue. In this world 50 cal rounds can shoot you in the arm with just leaving a hole and bullets from assault rifles cannot pass through cars and chairs and you can explode from being shot by a flair gun in the back! But in a funny kind of way it's so bad it's actually entertaining. The action is well staged, the film has it tongue in it's cheek as it knows how dumb it is. Some of the jokes are quite funny, but Jonny Knoxville does irritate and the whole fake hostage situation is pointless and some characters might have not been written in as they have nothing to do. By the final showdown of a race through a corn field leading to Arnie laying down the law with the bad guy. It's all predictable stuff but on the whole it's ok viewing if you're drunk.
It's not the come back we wanted, but when you take into account the last really good film Arnie made was Terminator 2 way back in 1991 this could have been a lot worse.
He's made his last stand now it's time for Arnie to retire with what respect he's got left before he becomes a parody of his former self.
