Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Even if this intermixing of kid fantasy and adult shoot'em-up, Hollywood insider jokes and cheap Arnold puns, doesn't completely bowl you over, it's clever and intriguing.
Rotten: Feels like a farewell, of sorts, to Arnold.
Rotten: There is a lot of action in Last Action Hero, but the underlying story never ever quite works.
Rotten: The pulse-pounding, sizzling pull of a Die Hard is absent.
Great play on bad 1980s action movies
This movie really took a beating with critics, but it was hillarious in how it parodied the ridiculus movie schinanagans of 1980s action. The heros are never hurt, never run out of bullets, and get get away with incredibly unbelievable stunts. My interest dropped near the end when the movie turns more serious.
Great movie!!! I loved Arnold Schwarzeneggers performance!!
great movie, not so great dvd release.
the only dvd in circulation now of this fine movie is one full screen pan-n-scan. can anyone confirm that this is actually widescreen? the trailer is not.
