There is a kind of cheap thrill one gets reading the title of the latest film with Arnold Schwarzenegger in the cast. After a life that has seen him go from Mr. Universe to Mr. Governor but a film career that hasn’t offered him any kind of hope since the early ’90s, Schwarzenegger now takes the lead in a mediocre film with lots of guns called The Last Stand.
As we saw with his brief appearance in the worst film released here in 2012, The Expendables 2, he is often best cast when he doesn’t take himself too seriously. Since Last Action Hero, in which he appeared as himself and played the role of a character based on the ones he often plays and was very clearly defined as fictional, the star of a film inside a film, he has not been in anything of note and frankly ought to stay away from “serious” roles
