Arnold and The Last Stand Trailer Revs Online

Johnny Knoxville and Arnold Schwarzenegger in The Last Stand (2013) Movie Image

Arnold Schwarzenegger and South Korean director Kim Jee-Woon team up for “The Last Stand” — the first film for Arnold as the undisputed leading man since his “retirement”, and the first English-language film for the very accomplished Kim Jee-Woon. I like the fact that the movie doesn’t pretend the hero is way over the hill, with some nice jabs at his age. The whole thing actually looks a lot better than I thought it would be. Honestly, given the premise, I thought this might be a bit silly, but turns out, it might be pretty enjoyable as an action spectacle. But hey, judge for yourself by viewing the trailer below, judge for yourselfers.

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.

Starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Forest Whitaker, Eduardo Noriega, Rodrigo Santoro, Johnny Knoxville, Jaimie Alexander, Peter Stormare, Zach Gilford, Genesis Rodriguez, and directed by Kim Jee-Woon.

    I couldn’t be more hyped for this! That was a well-cut trailer. Doesn’t give away the movie, but sufficiently communicates the premise and builds excitement for its release.

    Does look pretty good, but I think the character Johnny Knoxville is portraying is going to grate on my nerves a little.

    Arnold, big guns, this makes me feel like a kid again.

  • Sojourner

    Forget Arnold…the reason why this film should stand out is that it is the American directorial debut of Kim Jee-Woon! I Saw The Devil was an absolutely incredible film.

  • Monkeyhavingfun

    Kim Jee-Woon has done some great films and this looks fun. Does anyone else think Johnny Knoxville in the trailer kind of like Kang-ho Song in another Kim Jee-Woon film “The Good, the Bad, the Weird” or I could be going mental
