Action icon Arnold Schwarzenegger makes his much-anticipated return to the big screen in director Kim Jee-woon's hard-hitting U.S. directorial debut, The Last Stand. 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 the sleepy border town of Sommerton Junction. But that peaceful existence is shattered when Gabriel Cortez (Eduardo Noriega), the most notorious, wanted drug kingpin in the western hemisphere, makes a deadly escape from an FBI prisoner convoy. With the help of a fierce band of lawless mercenaries, Cortez races towards the US-Mexico border at 250 mph with a hostage in tow. Cortez' path: straight through Summerton Junction, where the whole of the U.S. law enforcement, including Agent John Bannister (Forest Whitaker) will have their final opportunity to intercept him.
