'The Last Stand', Review By Chesterfield College Student Sarah Wilmot


Friday 8th February 2013
Review by Sarah Wilmot


"I'll just do this once, OK? Now, pay attention"... this fantastic, jam-packed movie takes action to a whole new level, leaving the audience enticed and thriving for more.

Andrew Knauer almost gave action a new meaning when he wrote this storyline as there was not a moment during the film that I was left feeling unsatisfied!

The Last Stand - Review By Chesterfield Colleges Sarah Wilmot

The Last Stand
brings Arnold Schwarzenegger back into recognition and makes the movie as good as it can get.

The film is based on the escape of a very determined, wanted, drug baron who's held in FBI custody and is going to be transported. He manages to escape and makes his way to the border at Arizona. Many agents are on the mission to make sure that the drug baron does not leave the border, but are they successful?

The film ends with a standoff between the drug baron and the Sheriff (Arnold Schwarzenegger), but who wins?

The events which occur on his journey are intriguing and exciting, leaving you fulfilled and thirsty for more, such as the car chase for example. "It should be a quiet weekend" Arnie suggests, yet his intolerance of the foreshadowing is yet to be undiscovered…

I genuinely think that this incredibly well written movie is one that I would watch many times again in the future. Its fast paced, eventful story line is dramatic yet humorous, leaving you on edge with chills down your spine at the graphic effects. I would recommend that you watch The Last Stand so that you can endure the action only for yourself.

"Now go, before I change my mind" but "First, clean that chunk of beef off your hat."

VERDICT:

4 out of 5

4 spires out of 5.
A very successful movie which is well written and acted. Extremely hard to lose concentration from!
