This April Schwarzenegger is Back and Better Than Ever In ‘The Last Stand’ On Blu-ray

So this past winter has seen the release of action films from a lot of the action starts, old and new.  I did not expect The Last Stand to be the best of the bunch, but given that A Good Day to Die Hard was a huge bust and Stallone couldn’t quite land a Bullet to the Head, Schwarzenegger actually ended up coming out on top.  The Last Stand was an enjoyable, old fashioned action flick, with plenty of style given the direction by Kim Jee-Woon (Review HERE).  Now, everyone who missed it in theaters will get the chance to take home this old, Austrian cowboy in his latest action romp.  The Blu-ray arrives on April 30th and appears to be loaded with some pretty cool extras.  Read on to find out more about this upcoming release.

The Last Stand

When the leader of a drug cartel escapes from the FBI and attempts to make his way to Mexico, it’s up to Arnold Schwarzenegger to stop him in his tracks in The Last Stand arriving on Blu-ray Disc (plus Digital Copy and Ultraviolet), DVD (plus Digital Copy and Ultraviolet), Video on Demand and Pay-Per-View on May 21from Lionsgate Home Entertainment. The Last Stand will also be available for Digital Download on April 30, three weeks prior to the Blu-ray, DVD and Video on Demand release.

In addition to Arnold Schwarzenegger, The Last Stand features an all-star cast including Forest Whitaker (The Last King of Scotland), Johnny Knoxville (Jackass: The Movie), Rodrigo Santoro (What To Expect When You’re Expecting), Jaimie Alexander (Thor), Luis Guzmán (Arthur), Eduardo Noriega (Vantage Point), Peter Stormare (TV’s “Prison Break”), Zach Gilford (TV’s “Friday Night Lights”) and Genesis Rodriguez (Man on a Ledge).

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 (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 (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 (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.

The Blu-ray Disc and DVD are filled with action-packed bonus materials including, deleted/extended and alternate scenes, a “making of” featurette which follows the movie from story development to action-film realization, a look at the director’s innovative stunts, car scenes and techniques as well as Arnold’s camaraderie with his cast and crew.  The Last Stand Blu-ray Disc and DVD will be available for the suggested retail price of $39.99 and $29.95, respectively.
