After so many years off the screen it's a shock to be reminded of just what a bad actor Arnie is. The Last Stand Is a curious vehicle for Arnholdt's return, a B action picture of the sort Eastwood used to knock off in he seventies between more substantial projects (think The Gauntlet). For a star of Arnie's (former) stature it feels a bit low key.
None of which would matter were the film successful, but the story is shambolic, overstuffed and badly paced. After a slow start that is far too focused on Forrest Whitaker and the FBI, the film eventually kicks into gear after some 40 minutes. There's some decent action towards the end, and Korean director Jee-woon Kim knows where to put a camera, but this is middling stuff for an undemanding beer and pizza night.
