Admit it, no matter how silly 'The Last Stand' looks, a little smile comes across your face when thinking about Arnold Schwarzenegger play hero in an action movie once again. Besides, it doesn't appear to be taking itself too seriously, and it wasn't directed by a hack but the exciting Korean talent Kim Jee-Woon.
To get you further pumped for the flick, opening in a few short weeks, the first clip has hit the airwaves, featuring features plenty of gunfire, running and an Arnold quip. It's like the '80s all over again!
In the footage, which debuted on MTV, Schwarzenegger's small-town sheriff Ray Owens is caught in a tight spot thanks to some trigger-happy bad guys. The only thing to escape his predicament is to outrun the bullets (thankfully they're not great shots) and burst through the door of a diner. Wisely, the movie makes it clear that Ray (and Arnold) is no Superman, but a fellow who just might be getting too old for this s---.
Opening on January 18th, 'The Last Stand' goes like this: 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.
At first reluctant to become involved, and then counted out because of the perceived ineptitude of his small-town force, Owens ultimately rallies his team and takes the matter into his own hands, setting the stage for a classic showdown.
