      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Last Man Standing's brooding atmosphere and bursts of artfully arranged action prove intriguing yet ultimately insufficient substitutes for a consistently compelling story.

      Globe and Mail Rated: 2/4 Apr 12, 2002 Full Review Susan Stark Detroit News Rated: 1/4 Apr 11, 2002 Full Review Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times Last Man Standing is such a desperately cheerless film, so dry and laconic and wrung out, that you wonder if the filmmakers ever thought that in any way it could be... fun. Rated: 1/4 Jan 1, 2000 Full Review Mitchell Beaupre Paste Magazine An undeniable testament to Walter Hill’s mastery with an action sequence Rated: 7.5/10 Sep 29, 2023 Full Review Stefan Pape Common Sense Media With its hazy, sepia-tinged lens, and helped along by the film-noir style narration, this Prohibition-era action-packed crime drama has the look and feel of a classic. Rated: 3/5 Aug 2, 2022 Full Review John J. Puccio Movie Metropolis ...makes no excuses about what it is: an old-fashioned shoot-'em-up with an invincible hero.

      Slepton C I actually love this movie, but I want it to qualify for our podcast by hitting 50% and then I'll change my score to the highest possible. This movie is amazing. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 04/09/24 Full Review Jelisije J A copy and paste plot of a Few Dollars More and mediocre acting from a cast that I expected more from. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 09/01/23 Full Review Marc Z This is a highly watchable Western-Gangster film with a stellar cast and a gritty feel. This film is adapted from an Akira Kurosawa film, and Directed by the great Walter Hill, so you know it's filled with action and violence. Bruce Willis makes the mistake, and life altering decision, to pass through a dangerous Texas town on his way to Mexico. He immediately becomes embroiled in a gang war between two rival factions, and focuses on saving a distressed young woman looking to escape from one of the gangs. This is one of Willis's best. He is calm, cool, and deadly as Smith. This actually got better with age. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 07/21/23 Full Review Manny P Without doubt, Willis's last great stand ( no pun intended ) and probably Hill's also. Too much of a take on Eastwood's "Beguiled" and Hill's "The Long Riders". 25 years later, we're watching Willis making successive turkeys, one after the other ( probably 3 per year ). Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 03/03/22 Full Review Audience Member For me, an action movie needs to be believable. Many of those gun-fighting scenes were simply not believable. I don't understand why directors go to such ridiculous extremes that IMO ruin a movie. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Audience Member Love this Movie!!! Personally, I'm a fan of Directors who can recycle old source material and make it feel fresh and up to date. First and Foremost, This movie wasn't made for overly critical, pretentious for no reason, Keyboard Warrior-type Wannabe Film Buffs. This is pure unadulterated, Do Unto others before they do unto You, Gritty, Masculine Entertainment. 100% Fun !!! Nothing more. Nothing less. Not to mention, We get 1990's Bruce Willis at the Highlight of his career, perfectly paired (Like Steak & Eggs) with a No Nonsense, Super Villainy, Tommy Gun wielding Christopher Walken, Gift wrapped & Hand Delivered via Lone Wolf Productions. The Last Man Standing Is a credited Adaptation of both Yojimbo & A Fist Full of Dollars with a Walter Hill twist. When are people gonna stop fronting on my boy Walter. We all know that the man almost always delivers when it comes down to cooking up Action Man Films and With The Last Man Standing we're served with a well proportioned Buffet of Prohibition Era, Gangster meets Western, Tough Talking "Lone Wolf" Gun-Slinger for Hire, Shoot Em' Up Cinema. The film is both stylish & Captivating along with Great Dialogue, A+ Acting and Double Brandishing Colt .45 1911 Slow-Mo Gunplay. In the wise words of my Cuban brother Manolo from Scarface "Que mas Carne ni mas Carne, Asi viene el Sandwich Mang!!!" In other words, What more could we ask for??? 5 out of 5. Easy!!!
