The Last Stand Trailer: Ahnuld Is Back To The Choppa
After Arnold Schwarzenegger walked away for his longest continuous roles as the Governor of Kahleefornja and as Maria Shriver's philandering husband, he finally returns to regular movie appearances and to the type of lead role he's most associated with while he still has some gas left in the old Daimler; action hero.
In The Last Stand, Schwarzenegger plays a disgraced LAPD narcotics officer turned sleepy border town sheriff named Ray Owens. SIDEBAR: The man has always sounded like he just took a header off the schnitzel cart and yet 90 percent of his characters' have names that would have no business sporting an accent like that. I mean people immigrate all the time, right? Would it have killed anyone to change at least the character's last name to fit the actor? *SIGH. Sorry folks. Moving onward. Nothing much happens in Sommerton Junction, New Mexico, until one day when a nearby passing FBI convoy carrying a drug cartel kingpin prisoner is ambushed. The attackers are a gang of comic bookishly well-armed and equipped gunmen determined to rescue their leader and make a high speed Taco Bell run for the border. They cut to pieces any police and federal forces they come across with alarming ease. Unfortunately for them, a relentless Austrian with a chip on his shoulder patrols the only road that leads them to their undeserving freedom. The premise sounds simple enough for the inevitable shoot-'em-up showdown.
Korean director Kim Jee-Woon who is making his American movie debut helms the neo-western. Some of you may remember his name from his Sergio Leone send-up The Good, The Bad and the Weird. The Last Stand also stars Luis Guzman, Johnny Knoxville, Peter Stormare and Forest Whitaker. It is due out in theaters on January 18, 2013 by Lionsgate Pictures.
