Lionsgate Films has officially announced and detailed the Blu-ray release of The Last Stand. Director Kim Jee-Woon's action stars Arnold Schwarzenegger, Forest Whitaker, Johnny Knoxville, Eduardo Noriega and Peter Stormare, and streets on April 30th.
Synopsis: After leaving his LAPD narcotics post following a bungled operation that left him wracked with remorse and regret, Sheriff Ray Owens (Schwarzenegger) moved out of Los Angeles and settled into a life fighting what little crime takes place in the sleepy border town of Sommerton Junction. But that peaceful existence is shattered when Gabriel Cortez (Noriega), the most notorious, wanted drug kingpin in the western hemisphere, makes a deadly yet spectacular escape from an FBI prisoner convoy.
With the help of a fierce band of lawless mercenaries led by the icy Burrell (Stormare), Cortez begins racing towards the US-Mexico border at 250 mph in a specially-outfitted Corvette ZR1 with a hostage in tow. Cortez' path: straight through Summerton Junction, where the whole of the U.S. law enforcement, including Agent John Bannister (Whitaker) will have their final opportunity to intercept him before the violent fugitive slips across the border forever. At first reluctant to become involved, and then counted out because of the perceived ineptitude of his small town force, Owens ultimately rallies his team and takes the matter into his own hands, setting the stage for a classic showdown.
The Blu-ray edition of The Last Stand features a DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 surround track and numerous extras, including:
Not In My Town: Making The Last Stand
The Dinkum Firearm and Historic Weaponry Museum
Actor-Cam Anarchy: with Johnny Knoxville and Jaimie Alexander
Surprisingly good film. I enjoyed that Arnold embraced the idea that he can't be Commando anymore so he was tough, but not a one man army. He had a team. Great comeback film. The small audience I saw it with was laughing and clapping during the big shootout.
