Carlos M (us) wrote: This is certainly not a comedy (the sense of humor doesn't work that well), and I found it sad and depressing, contrary to those who thought it was sweet and optimistic. Besides, the characters seem too shallow in their artificial indie quirkiness and the dialogue is very annoying.
Stefan G (mx) wrote: When I first heard of this film, it represented Sylvester Stallone's comeback as an action star. I can't exactly say I didn't get what the film promised, but what I got was a rather empty action film that desperately needed more substance. Frankly, this is one of those films where the title was infinitely more appealing than the actual film. Though I commend the film for its attempt at a more personal narrative, but it doesn't do this very well, with essentially the same writing clichs that plague most action films. The characters are nothing special, and they're all basically stock personalities. They aren't terrible, but they clearly deserve more personality, and the script doesn't help much. The film looks like it could have been a hard-hitting action film, but looks only go so far in action films, and this film's style of presentation is very typical. At the very least, the action scenes still pack a bit of the punch that Stallone's action films were known for, but it's ultimately quite tame. It's not bad, but it's the kind of film that doesn't really aim for anything above its station, and with no ambitions of being anything other than an action film that relies on nostalgia. I guess, however, that's the price we're expected to pay when it comes to actors who are now past their prime.

Jed Y (ca) wrote: While not a very good movie, it's very funny and had lots of 90's cheese. Not to mention it's like the best karate kid rip off ever. I would still have to contend that the late great Jonathan Brandis still has good acting skill even though it's not that good. So I would watch this just to laugh at it.
Kevin M W (it) wrote: 1960s-style fun as a normal family (back then people really believed there was such a thing, a normal family, maybe in Kansas somewhere, or maybe L.A.!) moves into a haunted house armed with only a pair of special glasses with which you can see ghosts! Yeah, so hokey it's cool. But back when I was a wee youngun I was sufficiently terrorized too.

Jay B (kr) wrote: Note: Don't watch this film in Full Screen, the pan and scan is nauseatingly bad.Last Action Hero is a dose of adult elements stuffed into the framing of a children's story... which at least keeps you guessing. It's nothing special, but the "meta" movie-in-a-movie / actors-playing-themselves stuff is done fairly well and packs some whimsy.
David S (de) wrote: Jonathan Demme's slick and stylish homage to Alfred Hitchcock. The entire narrative itself is only a MacGuffin (to use a term Hitchcock used) to allow Demme to create set pieces that mimic those of the Master of Suspense - we get a shower sequence (ala Psycho), a pair of scissors (ala Dial M for Murder), a bell tower (ala Vertigo), a near fall in front of a train (ala Shadow of Doubt), the slow tearing of clothes (ala Saboteur), and even a climatic finish at a famous locale (here Niagara Falls).This film was made with the Hitchock fan in mind and not as a standalone thriller, thus those expecting a cleverly original thriller will be disappointed. However, those that embrace the film's self-referential sensibilities will have a lot of fun noticing all the references, homages, puns, and inside jokes that the film offers. But you don't need to know Hitchcock to still enjoy the values of this film - it is still an entertaining, stylish, and suspenseful thriller that will surely please most viewers.
Torion O (mx) wrote: I went to the theater hoping to see another movie, but it was sold out. I chose to watch this instead, and I honestly forgot what the other movie was. That's another story, never mind. This movie is really weird as in it takes scenes to a ridiculous level, which kind of makes it funny.
