    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.

    Great fun story that spoofs action films, while playing a good action story. Some bits are a bit too depressing, but overall the tone is fun,and tight comic take with a some gentle and not-so-gentle ribbing of the genre. The casting is uniformly excellent in this.

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

    Last Action Hero is a colorful, fun romp through self-aware parody. There are a lot of funny in-jokes and riffing on action movie cliches to be had here. The film also features a highly memorable performance from Charles Dance as the main villain. Lat Action Hero is a much underrated movie.

    The film tries so very hard to be The Movie of Summer '93 that it almost makes you sick for what could have been, what should have been, and, in the end, what it is: soulless sound and fury -- action in a vacuum.

    For all of its sensational stunts and flashes of wit, however, Last Action Hero plays more like a bright idea than like a movie that was thought through. It doesn't evoke the mystery of the barrier between audience and screen the way Woody Allen did, and a lot of the time it simply seems to be standing around commenting on itself.

    Last Action Hero is sporadically entertaining, but it could have been a whole lot more. Trimmed down and better edited, this film might have been a top-notch satire. As it is, however, it gets caught someplace in between action and comedy, and never really comes across as a solid example of either.
