Kim Jee-woon is one of South Korea’s most exciting directors, but as is too often the case with foreign filmmakers his Hollywood debut was a bit of a let down critically and commercially. There were bigger things at stake with The Last Stand than just Kim’s American career though as it was also the return of Arnold Schwarzenegger to the big screen in a leading role.
The film still has plenty of fun moments, and while many of them are in the action department it’s both interesting and entertaining to see Schwarzenegger playing a role that doesn’t try to hide his obvious age. Sheriff Ray Owens is undeniably old making him far more human than the characters he’s used to playing.
Check out this brief featurette below with Kim and others talking about what drew them towards working with the last action hero himself, Mr. Arnold Schwarzenegger.
