The Last Stand - Movie Synopsis & Plot

Arnold Schwarzenegger stars as Sheriff Owens, a man who has resigned himself to a life of fighting what little crime takes place in sleepy border town Sommerton Junction after leaving his LAPD post following a bungled operation that left him wracked with failure and defeat after his partner was crippled. After a spectacular escape from an FBI prisoner convoy, the most notorious, wanted drug kingpin in the hemisphere is hurtling toward the border at 200 mph in a specially outfitted car with a hostage and a fierce army of gang members. He is headed, it turns out, straight for Summerton Junction, where the whole of the U.S. law enforcement will have their last opportunity to make a stand and intercept him before he slips across the border forever. At first reluctant to become involved, and then counted out because of the perceived ineptitude of his small town force, Owens ultimately accepts responsibility for one of the most daring face offs in cinema history.

MOVIE REVIEW

In his first starring role since he became the Governator, Arnold is undeniably back in The Last Stand, a deliciously silly action movie that works in all the right ways. Though the perfect Austrian is older and creakier than ever, he hasn't lost his charm or physical presence - and most importantly, his ability to entertain.
