TV show review: CONTINUUM season 4


Movie review by David Blackwell


107 minutes, rated R


STUDIO:  Lionsgate/ Di Bonventura Pictures

Theatrical RELEASE DATE:  1-18-2013


Sheriff Ray Owens and his deputies must stop an escaped drug lord from crossing the Mexican border and he must through the border town of Summerton in this modern action western.



THE LAST STAND is a good return to action for Arnold Schwarzenegger who has been missing from movies for years.  On the other hand, the first English language film directed by Kim Ji-woon is a disappointment compared to his previous film- the brilliant I SAW THE DEVIL.    THE LAST STAND only stands out for the good action and how the characters interact in the movie.   The big flaw of this movie is the script which has a few flaws including the one scene where the drug kingpin is rescued by his cartel and I’m scratching my head on why the FBI agents aren’t trying to find a way to stop the crane with the magnet instead of just shooting at the vehicle and the masked shooter on top of the magnet.  


This movie stands out as a high quality B action movie you will enjoy renting as it is a modern Western as Sheriff Ray Owens (Arnold Schwarzenegger) rounds up his deputies to stop the escaped drug kingpin making it over the border in a souped up Corvette (C6 ZR1).   It is enjoyable for one time viewing for the action filled with bullets and zany characters (I wonder how one of the deputies has to be so dumb in he doesn’t know how to run a license plate).   Just rent it instead of going to the theaters to see it.  Shut off part of your brain and enjoy the action.
