I can’t explain why, but I’m absolutely pumped for Kim Jee-woon‘s The Last Stand. The story is generic and it stars an old and tired Arnold Schwarzenegger, but something about it looks like there’s going to be a lot of fun associated with it.
The first trailer didn’t leave us with much, but it does remind me that Jee-woon directed The Good, The Bad, The Weird and I Saw the Devil.
Both of those foreign-language films will more-than-likely be much better than his first American feature, but his visual style and kinetic energy is certainly on display in this first clip from the film.
It doesn’t reveal much and it ends on a sour note, making mention of Schwarzenegger’s age, but it gets the message across.
The Last Stand could be the action movie that we desperately need to kick off the new year or it could be a failed effort by a promising director.
Where do you think it will land?
The Last Stand opens on January 18th, 2013.
