  1. Last Action Hero makes such a strenuous show of winking at the audience (and itself) that it seems to be celebrating nothing so much as its own awfulness. In a sense, the movie's incipient commercial failure completes it aesthetically.
  2. It's not a bomb at all. A dud is more like it - Last Action Hero isn't interesting enough to be explosively bad. For all the inflated pyrotechnics on the screen, the picture seems consistently grey and almost pitiably small. [18 Jun 1993, p.D1]
  3. The script is weak and unrelenting. The stunts are unspectacular. The special effects are nothing you haven't seen before. But worst of all, there's the spectacle of Schwarzenegger glorying in the wonder of Schwarzenegger. [18 Jun 1993, p.C1]

    First Arnie movie I ever saw. This movie is good, but definitely not the best movie that stars Arnold Schwarzenegger.

    Love this movie, Benedict is the best villain ever. Ripper is the second best villain ever (well, it's a tie between him and the wet bandits). This movie is so much fun, "Who Framed Roger Rabbit" and Last Action Hero and "Hook" are my magical childhood movies. Full Review »
