Not in his town. Not on his watch./
Retirement is for sissies.
Unfortunately for Owens, Gabriel Cortez (Noriega), the most notorious, good-looking and wanted drug lord in the hemisphere has escaped from jail and is making a beeline for Sheriff's little town (using a powerful modified Chevrolet Corvette C6 ZR1). Sheriff Owens is forced to rejoin his team in order to capture the runaway before he crosses the border of Mexico and is lost forever.
- Arnold Schwarzenegger who in my opinion was so much better here than back in The Terminator days. The 65-year-old action star still has the coolest German accent but in The Last Stand he was very down-to-earth, likable and witty - really a pleasure to watch! And how brilliant was the spicy yet respectably humorous fight scene between Sheriff Ray Owens and criminal Gabriel Cortez!
- As said before I also loved Johnny Knoxville's character Lewis Dinkum who even (or obviously) reminded me of Knoxville's Jackass days. Lewis was totally peculiar, such an amusing and crazy guy with all his historical war material and funny outfits.
- Additionally I enjoyed Peter Stormare's, Luis Guzmán's and Eduardo Noriega's acting because they all were utterly believable and carelessly talented. But you have to see them to completely understand what I'm so rapturously babbling here.
- The Last Stand pretty much made me jump, it was so gripping and intense! But it also made me laugh and smile, a few cruel scenes brought some sorrow too. It really offered everything.
