The Last Stand (2013) Movie Review

Arnold Schwarzenegger may be past his prime years, but he's back again starring in another movie named The Last Stand.

The Last Stand has a simple storyline of a top ruthless criminal named Gabriel Cortez escaped from the FBI's clutches while transporting him to his death sentence. Gabriel's men planned everything perfectly to had his escape route to be seamless. With him escaped, he journeys his way towards Mexico in a fast car so that he can live a free life while the FBIs scurry to catch up with him and stop him before he makes it across the border.

Arnold Schwarzenegger plays Sheriff Ray Owens, a person who used to be a decorated LAPD law enforcer but after the much bloodshed and violence with his team decimated, he decided to call it quits and opted for a much quieter life in the town of Sommerton. Nothing much happens in the town but now with the escaped convict on the loose, Gabriel Cortez had planned with his team executing to cross the Mexico border through Sommerton.

When the Feds figured out Cortez' plan, they alerted Sheriff Owens and that's when he springs into action to fulfill his duty and tries to stop Cortez from crossing the border when he arrives even though Owens is outnumbered. With his merry band of deputies who's never seen much action ever, much less ready for it, they prepare for war against the number 1 most wanted man.

The movie is hilarious and most of the action scenes are merely gunfights (though there is the last boss fight where Arnold shows he still got it in him), other than that, this may be a decent enough movie to watch. I rate this movie 3 stars out of 5
