Arnold Schwarzenegger on The Last Stand

Exclusive: “It’s kind of a film about the little guy”

Arnold Schwarzenegger talks about his action comeback in the new issue of Total Film magazine (out now, and available for just £1.99 on your iPad).

Inside the issue, we go in depth with Arnie, who’s back to reclaim his action-icon status after eight years in politics, and we also get the lowdown on the big man from Jaimie Alexander and director Kim Je-woon.

Here’s a sneak peek at what the Governator had to say about The Last Stand:

“It’s kind of a film about the little guy, though it’s funny for me to be called ‘little guy’, right?” he told us.

“He’s the guy that is about to retire and he has a few people in his station that are young kids, and the station is not equipped for big challenges. All of a sudden, a vicious gang of warriors hits the town. They are trying to usher one of the top drug criminals back to Mexico.

“I mean, it’s a bunch of trained military guys, 20 of them. This shit is happening and we have no idea how to get out of it.”

The Last Stand opens on 25 January 2013.

      Eh, sounds a little like an Assault on Precinct 13 rip off to me. Nothing original there for me.

      I wonder, when will 'past-their-sell-by-date' actors stop doing action films? It's embarrassing.

      Well I for one will not be going to see this. Too many other worthy movies in 2013 to see instead of this, I'll probably catch this on Sky movies if there is nowt else on.

      @ghostland, sorry but a tough guy is a tough guy at any age. Lee Marvin proved that in the 60's. And i've met a few in real life as well, you just don't mess with these people.

      @Porus But Lee Marvin could act. That should be the prerequisite for an actor - action hero or not.

      Schwarzenegger is a legend ...If you don't like the look of a film don't see it simple just cos he's not as young as he used to be doesn't mean he can't make a badass action film again
