Last Action Hero (1993)
Critic Consensus: Last Action Hero has most of the right ingredients for a big-budget action spoof, but its scattershot tone and uneven structure only add up to a confused, chaotic mess.

News & Interviews for Last Action Hero
Critic Reviews for Last Action Hero
The director has to boost the realism of his staging in a rather self-defeating manner. It begins to look, not that he's having it both ways, trading on what he mocks, but that he has painted himself into a corner.
There is a lot of action in Last Action Hero, but the underlying story never ever quite works.
The pulse-pounding, sizzling pull of a Die Hard is absent.
Audience Reviews for Last Action Hero
I thought that this film could've been handled a little better than it could've with Schwarzenneggers standards, but its very entertaining. The main character does a good job as being a kid with a disfunctional life, a mom who's never hardly around, no dad and the closest father figure being a theater custodian played by Robert Prosky, and has been skipping school, and the idea of being sucked into a film, I thought was a very interesting concept, I know the concept has been done before, like with Bugs Bunny going into Elmer Fudd's dreams, or Timmy Turner getting into different books interacting with the characters (I Just realized this is in cartoons a lot,) but a kid getting sucked into an action movie is pretty interesting. And as a Schwarzennegger action comedy, it was done very well, also I like the film how it makes fun of all the different action movie cliches at the time, the puns, the explosions, the car chases, the slow-mo, the celebrity cameos, its just crazy, and the fact that a magical ticket can give you the power to travel into different films and out into the real world, its pretty cool, and when the villain gets a hold of the ticket, it becomes very interesting. Overall out of all the 90s action Schwarzennegger movies, its not the best, but as a comedy and an action movie its very well constructed and put together.
A somewhat cheesy kids movie, but it's very funny. I really liked Schwarzenegger in this movie, he's very cool. I enjoyed this movie, it's good.
I really don't understand why this movie gets so much flack, it's really a great idea and fun critique of Hollywood movies. Maybe it was too ahead of its time and maybe it still is, but I enjoyed it a lot. Arnold Schwarzenegger was extremely brave and humble to joke about himself and the movies he tends to be in, just a testament to someone who appreciates all they have. All the cameos and film references are some great touches and I love the cheesy over the top sequences and dialogue. I think the overall message is good; while Hollywood isn't an accurate representation of the world, it's still an important part of our culture and a way for us to see life as we wish it was.
