The full trailer for The Last Stand is chock full of Schwarzenegger goodness

Nov. 7, 2012by: Alex Maidy

Arnold Schwarzenegger's first full movie since becoming governor of California looked like generic action tripe in the initial teaser trailer. It made me question why Korean wunderkind Kim Ji-woon would make such an ordinary movie his Hollywood debut.

This full length trailer answers that question. While the story may still be pretty generic, the action looks absolutely stunning. I don't think I have been this intrigued since John Woo came to the States with HARD TARGET. Schwarzenegger looks every bit his age, but that seems to be worked into the storyline and to great effect.

Plot: 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. Cortez path: straight through Summerton Junction, where the whole of the U.S. law enforcement, including Agent John Bannister (Forest Whitaker) will have their final opportunity to intercept him before the violent fugitive 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 rallies his team and takes the matter into his own hands, setting the stage for a classic showdown.

THE LAST STAND also stars Forest Whitaker, Johnny Knoxville, Jaimie Alexander, Luis Guzman, Peter Stormare and Genesis Rodriguez, I am always wary when I see Johnny Knoxville in a movie that is not JACKASS. The guy is very likeable but usually does not evoke a standard of quality one would hope for from a serious action movie.

THE LAST STAND will cross the border on January 18, 2013.

Everything looks great except Knoxville. I hope he doesn't have a lot of screen time because he looks completly wrong and miscast.

Looks like a nice modern western, and if this trailer is any indication, maybe more in line with the light-hearted antics of The Good The Bad The Weird than some of Kim's other movies.

Luis Guzman was holding the Conan sword in one shot. That scores it some points.

Honestly, the fact that Jee-woon Kim is directing only makes me more interested. The man has a penchant for action, as demonstrated by The Good, The Bad, and The Weird. I can only hope that he retains his talent in his first Hollywood feature and wasn't reigned in by Hollywood in order to deliver the kind of film they want. He's a talented guy, and his talent could go a long ways in helping this movie be less generic than it seems to be. Either way, however, this looks like a lot of fun and

Knoxville needs to stay with his Jackass crew. I didn't expect this type of trailer. It looks like a decent comeback movie for Arnold, but it will probably end up being forgotten, kind of like a few of his movies before he became governor. It will be fun to see him headlining again.

Not as good as the first trailer. The music set a completely different tone.

Not bad

Pretty good though i thought the more serious tone of the earlier trailer worked better.
