Movie Review: The Last Stand - R

Arnold is back as Sheriff Ray Owens, a former LAPD Narcotics cop, and the current Sheriff of quiet border town Sommerton Junction.  Not much happens there, until Ray gets a call from the FBI that Drug Kingpin Gabriel Cortez escaped during transport and is headed through Sommerton Junction, to the Mexican border.  Owens and his team must  stop Cortez from crossing the border.  

A good story with lots of action, and a number of entertaining moments. 

  It was good to see Arnold back,  and I think it was written and executed pretty realistically;  his role fit his age, and he didn't pretend to be  younger than he is.  Forest Whitaker is good as FBI Agent John Bannister

  Content warnings include violence, and some blood in scenes.  

A Very entertaining movie.
