Poster for the movie "The Last Stand"

The Last Stand

Nice to see Arnie back in action mode, though the formula was nothing new – highly skilled and respected agent avoiding the action in the big city in favour of a sleepy life in a small town gets caught up in a ‘most-wanted’ escaped prisoner chase. Generally entertaining with some whimsical rural humour (the granny with the modified pistol taking umbrage to the trespassing mercenary among others).
