Arnold Schwarzenegger's comeback vehicle, "The Last Stand," is an R-rated action movie with fast cars, big guns, bloody shootouts, attractive women, good guys, bad guys, and just enough of the former governor's squinty-eyed tough guy shtick to keep nostalgic fans satisfied.
He's back, all right. But will movie audiences be glad to see him?
"The Last Stand" is also rife with interesting echoes -- for those attuned to such things -- of the former governor's experience in politics: Sheriff Ray is the de facto leader of what looks like an utterly desolate and bankrupt town (read: California), with neither his deputies, nor citizens paying attention to anything he has to say (again: California).
