In the distance, you can hear the rumble…Schwarzenegger is coming. You can’t stop him and why would you want too? He returns to cinema not for himself, but for the betterment of all mankind. Bask in the wonderment that is his brush cut! BASK!
And the best way to bask in said brush cut is through this new poster for THE LAST STAND that debuted over at IGN. So get to it!
And how about an official synopsis? Sure, why not!
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 sleepy border town Sommerton Junction. But that peaceful existence is shattered when Gabriel Cortez (Eduardo 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 (Peter 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 (Forest 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.
This movie is going to be awesome. You know it, I know it, Zorak know it. I mean, that synopsis right there is just the perfect recipe for Action Tartare. Aging badass behemoth being thrust into battle again because of circumstances while also gaining a little redemption. It’s simple and straightforward, just like an action movie should be.
