Rating: 2.5/4 -- There is a lot of action in Last Action Hero, but the underlying story never ever quite works. Full Review

Last Action Hero loses control of itself. Full Review
Newsweek
Feb 9, 2018
Rating: 4.5/5 -- Driven less by mammoth ego and more by wild, unchecked id, "Last Action Hero" works as a riotous comedy and a rigorous case study of why we go to the movies. It's an inventive valentine made timeless by audacious shamelessness and shameless audacity. Full Review

Rating: 2/4 -- The pulse-pounding, sizzling pull of a Die Hard is absent. Full Review

Rating: 4/10 -- The divergent puzzle pieces do not often fit together terribly well, in spite of their potential. Full Review

The director has to boost the realism of his staging in a rather self-defeating manner. It begins to look, not that he's having it both ways, trading on what he mocks, but that he has painted himself into a corner. Full Review

Product Description:

Arnold Schwarzenegger and director John McTiernan join forces again in, THE LAST ACTION HERO, a heart racing thriller in which a young boy uses a magical ticket to infiltrate his favorite movie. Danny (Austin O'Brien) passes through the movie screen and into the whirlwind life of crusader Jack Slater (Arnold Schwarzenegger) becoming his sidekick. But when the villains learn that they too can travel back and forth between cinema and reality, it's up to Jack Slater to put a stop their havoc wreaking.

Once a character in the "Jack Slater 4" film, Danny takes on the role of Slater's sidekick, and together they combat Vivaldi (Anthony Quinn), Benedict (Charles Dance), and The Ripper (Tom Noonan), an infamous troika bent on global malice. Trouble really however, when Benedict gets a hold of Danny's magic ticket, and travels to the real world laying waste to Times Square. Jack Slater leaves his cinematic bubble and follows the villain into reality--a reality where heroes don't always win.

Like a prophet armed with fire, director John McTiernan uses explosive action and booming special effects to foretell of a time when hyper reality will be achieved with the ease of buying a ticket to a movie.

Production Notes:

  • The film debuted a new sound system from Sony called Sony Dynamic Digital Sound (SDDS). It consisted of eight different channels of digital audio that get printed on the film.
  • Richard Greenberg served as a visual effects consultant.
  • The film reunites John McTiernan and Arnold Schwarzenegger who first worked together on "Predator" (1987). They agreed to collaborate again when they found the right project and both felt "The Last Action Hero" was perfect for its blend of action and humor.
  • Shot in Los Angeles, California and in New York City. When they filmed in New York, city authorities closed Times Square to traffic to accommodate shooting. The production company also proudly erected a 100-foot balloon likeness of Schwarzenegger as his character Slater.
  • The film had an estimated budget between $60-85 million.
  • Rated BBFC 15 by the British Board of Film Classification.
