LAST ACTION HERO (Theatrical Release USA 1993)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.3|5.0 Starsìììì

Last Action Hero—likable, one of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s better performances—has a fresh, creative twist to its story that is welcome. This movie makes a good older child/adult share. Great job by Director John McTiernan.

Storyline

A young boy, while watching an action movie, finds himself in the actual movie rather than watching it from a theater seat.

Thank you to Director John McTiernan for directing effort. Thank you to Executive Producer Arnold Schwarzenegger for making the film possible. Additional characters/cast include: Jack Slater (Arnold Schwarzenegger), John Practice (F.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. The film has future potential for classic sci-fi status and is well worth time and money expenditure.
