Last Action Hero ★★★½

I had a feeling my wife would really like this, and she did!

I probably enjoy this movie more than most people. Ironically, I mostly think it suffers from rather weak action -- it's an especially big surprise coming from John Mctiernan (who directed the original Die Hard and Predator). Perhaps it needed less generic locations? Perhaps concept trumped execution? Any which way, it's still good fun.

Little known fact: the co-writer of this movie is responsible for one of my favorite things on the planet: the Puzzle Hunt at BGGCon. Where he finds the time and energy is beyond me, but he is truly the "Last Board Game Hero" in my book.
