I own this on VHS.
One of my childhood favorites. I watched this movie so many times as a kid, and it still holds up to this day.
This film gets a bad rep unfairly. This is one of those tragic cases of Box office slaughter, as this film had the misfortune to be released in theaters the week after the first Jurassic Park was released. And the film suffered BIG time.
This movie is largely responsible for my tastes in film and music to this day. I remember the emotions it would cause me as a kid popping in my old VHS for the 50th time and seeing that credit sequence for Jack Slater IV with MegaDeth, or the car chase scene playing AC/DC's Big Gun. To this day those are still two of my favorite songs of all time thanks to this movie. Other than Star Wars, I can't think of another film that has had more influence in my life.
Last Action Hero holds a very special place in my heart and it's truly a fantastic film. Grossly overlooked, whoafully underrated, and a cigar smoking dessert eagle totting Schwarzenegger one liner load of fun.
Mistake Status: I plan to buy the DVD at some point and go through it extensively.
A smart and hilarious meta action movie that was far ahead of its time, with an overlooked performance from Charles Dance.Phaneron
Question: Does anyone know the name of the song played in the very beginning of the movie (intro with the police cars)?
