Last Action Hero

A young boy, Danny, prefers to live in a dreamworld of movies and adventure, much to the distress of his mother. He idolizes the character of Jack Slater, an action hero played by Arnold Schwarzeneggar, and when his friend who runs the projection box at the theatre gives Danny a magic ticket, he gets sucked into the movie and becomes part of the action.

Spending half the time trying to convince Jack that it's all make believe and the other half enjoying himself, things get a bit too real for Danny when Benedict, the bad guy of the piece, finds the ticket and returns to wreak havoc in a world where evil can win. Danny and Jack must go back to the real world and return Benedict to where he belongs before he unleashes the villains of every movie running.

Visible crew/equipment: When Charles Dance shoots his boss in the swimming pool, he starts talking to the camera about moving into the real world like Danny. Look at the glass mirror and windows behind him - you can see the film crew and cameras following him.

Trivia: When they go into the police station, just before Robert Patrick walks out Sharon Stone walks out in her Basic Instinct outfit. Another nod to the "movie within a movie" concept.
