Independent Cinema - The Last Stand Review

Independent Cinema writes: Returning to film after a hiatus can feel a little off for both parties involved, but interesting nonetheless. Not to mention bringing an Asian director to American soil for the first time, to direct the star’s debut film after this long break. Hesitations were aplenty but it’s clear when watching The Last Stand that Kim Jee-woon knows what he’s doing, and able to both parallel Arnold Schwarzenegger’s career and provide a fun film that feels like nothing has changed since Arnold left for the political life. What Jee-woon delivers is an action film, with a long set-up but one hell of a payoff. You may walk in wondering why Schwarzenegger isn’t getting that much screen time in the first hour of the film, but you won’t be displeased with the many attempts at getting a story going because everyone is in on the joke, and ideally you’ll be in on it too by the time the film ends. (Cinema, The Last Stand) -
