Plot: After leaving his LAPD narcotics post following a bungled operation that left him wracked with remorse and regret, Sheriff Ray Owens 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, the most notoriously wanted drug kingpin in the western hemisphere, makes a deadly yet spectacular escape from an FBI prisoner convoy.

It is easy to sum up a film like The Last stand in just three words, Chases, punches and fights. For there is nothing much in terms of story plotline or even a pretence of making a movie out there on the screen. Arnold's almost come back disappoints in parts, while managing to not bore to death in others.
Arnold plays a small town Shriff who is after the Mexican mafia crime lord who is too smart for the police and runs around in a wonder car. There are many neat chase sequences, enough gun shots and some decent hand to hand action sequences that keep one engaged, yet there is not one point in the film that would get you to jump out of the seat and take notice.
Arnold is old, and he looks tired. Though he is undeniably in his element in the action sequences, one does feel sad for him to have been part of such a mediocre enterprise in the first place. Sadly his presence is just not enough to raise the bar.
Watch this comfortably on the idiot box and you might not complain. Spend 250 bucks on this and you would definitely want to down a few bullets someone;s throat. Stay clear.
