  1. jajabornixa's rating of the film Last Action Hero

    What a brilliant ode to the magic of cinema! A very intelligent and playful discourse on the action film genre and its tropes. The film doesn't decompose into just the aforesaid, though, as it transcends into a broader discourse of real and fiction/imaginary; a corollary, the film is an exposition on the very magic of cinema- as Ruiz put it, Cinema is another life. Makes me want to read Borges and watch Ruiz now.

  3. Ethan's rating of the film Last Action Hero

    This is basically what The Purple Rose of Cairo would look like as an action film.

  4. A. Felix's rating of the film Last Action Hero

  5. Chihao Tsang's rating of the film Last Action Hero

    Still fun to watch after over 20 years, not as good as Arnie's classics. Soundtrack is really quite good, never noticed it before now

  6. HKFanatic's rating of the film Last Action Hero

    Exempting the spare instances of bathroom humor, Shane Black's fingerprints are all over this, and - in the midst of John McTiernan cutting loose with some exquisite 'John Woo by way of Looney Tunes' setpieces - Black pens a moment of guileless action hero Jack Slater confronting the vapid, Hollywood showboat Arnold Schwarzenegger ("You've brought me nothing but pain") that I can't help but find genuinely affecting.

  7. smndvdcl's rating of the film Last Action Hero

    McTiernan revels in the campy, referential quality of this Schwarzenegger-starring 90s action flick. It's possibly underrated. At the very least, it is an immersive spectacle; at another level, it is a fascinating treatise of the American Dream, and at the most hagiographic, it deftly employs meta-narrative tropes in order to enhance its conceptual clout.

  8. CinemaDead's rating of the film Last Action Hero

    Funny parody/deconstruction of the genre, plus Arnold best performance in his whole career (ok, best after T2)

  9. Landen Celano's rating of the film Last Action Hero

    I un-apologetically love this movie.

  10. Bernardo_Rodrigues's rating of the film Last Action Hero

    I loved this film. I should re-watch it sometime.

  11. Jorge Morello's rating of the film Last Action Hero

    Meta Hollywood plus Charles Dance

  12. Mark O. Stack's rating of the film Last Action Hero

    One rewrite shy of nailing it.

  13. MarcusArcus's rating of the film Last Action Hero

  14. ry h's rating of the film Last Action Hero

    a fun, sentimental half-parody in line with say the princess bride or time bandits. notable for how thoroughly it breaks the fourth wall, and funniest when it does. about 30 minutes too long. oh, & bonus points for the reminder at the end that no matter how bad our world is, ingmar bergman's is worse.

  15. Christopher M. Jones's rating of the film Last Action Hero

    an uneven masterpiece that will be far more respected in the decades to come

  16. Ghostman's rating of the film Last Action Hero

    Better than Cinema Paradiso. Arnold is the biggest hipster, he did meta before meta was cool.

  17. THE APOLL0's rating of the film Last Action Hero

    McTiernan's examination of cinema itself

  18. Tom Cottey's rating of the film Last Action Hero

    Alongside The Terminator and T2 (and Commando for laughs), this is Schwarzenegger's finest moment.

  19. anarresti's rating of the film Last Action Hero

    It was at the time an original way to reinvent the same old thing. The action pic looking at itself. Making fun of its clichés, realizing that the paradigm was at a standstill, in terms of creativity. Mass entertainment movies, 20 years ago, were far from reaching the download crisis, needing to reinvent themselves, with 3D and other gimmicks, to keep atracting fans to theatres. This is an interesting turning point.

  20. Øyvind Rype's rating of the film Last Action Hero

  21. film_lies101's rating of the film Last Action Hero

    Just rewatched, yep it's a classic

  22. Adam Moody's rating of the film Last Action Hero

    Self-reflexive action flick with a great sense of humor. One of Arnold Schwarzenegger's most entertaining performances.

  23. H. K. ‡'s rating of the film Last Action Hero

    McTiernan exposes the fraudulence of movie magic in order to adore the true magic it conceals and in doing so brings the celebrations of life and art into one. A wonderful love letter to action cinema and Hollywood at large.

  24. Polyglot's rating of the film Last Action Hero

    ''To be or not to be. To be.''
