The Last Stand
Arnie is very much back as a small town sheriff with a mission.
We got all nostalgic over the poster for the Last Stand this week, so it's good news to see the trailer pop up online. Arnie is very much back as a conspicuously Austrian accented small-town US sheriff, facing a solid if not revolutionary action movie set up. There's some decent action in here, and plenty of the Austrian Oak, so we're hopeful for some good fun from this one when it is released on January 25th next year.
Action icon Arnold Schwarzenegger makes his much-anticipated return to the big screen in Korean director Kim Jee-woon’s hard-hitting US directorial debut, THE LAST STAND. After leaving his LAPD narcotics post following a bungled operation that left him wracked with remorse and regret, Sheriff Ray Owens (Schwarzenegger) moved out of Los Angeles and settled into a life fighting what little crime takes place in sleepy border town Sommerton Junction. But that peaceful existence is shattered when Gabriel Cortez (Eduardo Noriega), the most notorious, wanted drug kingpin in the western hemisphere, makes a deadly yet spectacular escape from an FBI prisoner convoy. With the help of a fierce band of lawless mercenaries led by the icy Burrell (Peter Stormare), Cortez begins racing towards the US-Mexico border at 250 mph in a specially-outfitted Corvette ZR1 with a hostage in tow.
