Christopher Webster [Celluloid 08.16.12] action adventure



Kim Jee-woon, the amazing Korean director who made I Saw the Devil and the action packed western, The Good, the Bad, the Weird makes his American debut with The Last Stand a small town shoot-em-up with Arnold Schwarzenegger cast as the aging sheriff that has to get back in the saddle and save everyone from drug dealers... or something.

Synopsis:
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.



Though the story seems standard, The Stand has a top notch supporting cast in Peter Stormare and Forest Whitaker and Jee-woon's direction looks characteristically slick.
